why/the horror(16 posts)

why/the horrori wanna know?
Mar 1, 2002 12:37 PM
after recently seeing a very fat man on a superlight ocr/tcr whatever.. i have come to the conclusion that most of you reading this are:
a) not currently racing or training to race
b) have never seriously trained or raced
c) are old fat guys that cant touch your toes
d) ride bikes that are too small and botched together with ridiculously long stems and spacer upon spacer and ,
d) argue about stuff that is simply irrelevant if you are not in excellent condition.

so my question to you all is..
how many of you can even reach down below seat level with a nice flat parallel to the ground back and grab your drops without what should be your abs sloshing all over your thighs?
and if this is true.. why are you arguing about stuff that i have never heard a pro argue about?
really?
I am totally serious. is this fun for you?
Did you have fun posting?Pack Meat

Was it cathartic? Will you gleen useful information that will make your life more fulfilled? How many pros have you heard argue about anything? Do you know any pros personally?

To answer your questions. Yes it's a kind of fun. Most of the posters are rec riders, beginners or good local racers. People are just looking for information and hoping to share experiences. Pros don't argue about some of this stuff cause they ride what they are given.

Thanks for your interest in me. I train year round and race. I ride a sub 17 lb bike. My belly sloshes around in January. My best 40K ITT time is 56:14 minutes, certified. What's yours?

Share the Road.

I, like many others here train year around and race. Sherpa23 is over in Europe racin' now so he won't be posting for a long while. Some of my teammates and former teammates include Posties, highest finishing American ever in the Vuelta a Cuba, Masters Elite national champs, national collegiate road race champs, etc. I am an over the hill 34 year old, but still get out there and mix it up often. I'll be doin' 3 crits in a row this month in addition to a century or half century and golf tourneys. How bout you?

No hockey here, man.McAndrus

I should be a hockey fan. I grew up in Detroit, watching "Hockey Night in Canada" on TV and playing the game on frozen back yards.

Somewhere around the age of 12, baseball took my fancy. Around the age of 21 basketball took my fancy. At an age I won't mention, cycling took my fancy.

I don't even remember what an Icing call is. My daughter asked me during the Olympics and I just shrugged. She was very disappointed. She thought I knew everything.
i was thinking Glasgow Rangers (as in rangers vs celtic)Spirito di Finocchio

but thats ok

re: daughters - later on she'll be inspired by you again, no doubt.

what is an icing call anyway? is that something to do with substance abuse allegations or is it a homie greeting? just asking in case im a father ;-)
Oops, my badMcAndrus

Sorry I didn't get the reference. When you grow up in Dee-troit the Rangers are always from Long Island.

If memory serves, icing is when I send the puck across the blue line when none of my teammates are between the blue line and the opposition's goal. If it were basketball it would be the equivalent of knocking the ball out of bounds to keep it away from your opponent. It's an automatic turnover. But, like I said, I don't remember exactly.

Glasgow Rangers, hmmm..... what's the name of the famous English soccer team Manchester something? Oh, yes, Manchester United. Just by knowing the Glasgow Rangers exist you've doubled my Euro soccer knowledge. I am indebted.

By the way, I'm not a Scot. The handle is a nickname an old friend gave me twenty years ago. What do I know about Scots? Sean Connery is one, I saw Braveheart, and when Colin Mockery (Whose Line) does his Braveheart imitation he says, "Aye! Do I sound a wee bit like a pirate?"

why dont you post a site where we can all flex our muscles for you on our trainers in front of a Webcam Network.

some of us are happy just jerking off to regular porn like www.hasidic_voyeur.com but as we are working we cannot visit that site so we log on to RBReveiew.com to satisfy our lusty desires.

as you obviously have a different fetish let us know where to log in so we can help you out you straight talking flexible pro inspired hard-abbed zuess. yeah big daddy.

so my question to you is.. were you drawn to cycling for its latent homo-eroticism.

I think it's funny how each of us see our world around us. When I started riding last year I was surprised to see how many 6', 130lb. riders there are. Being 5'8" 155lb, I thought I was small.
Something else I did notice at my last organized century, was how many LARGE people there were completing the ride in 5 and a half or so hours.
I guess my point is don't judge a book by it's cover. You may get your butt stomped.
As for spirito, I don't know where the heck he is coming from.
