Okay, so I have too much time on my hands. Got to thinking...the wife is hosting a Longaberger Basket party for all her friends. Why not a similar party, only biking related? Imagine, you, a bunch of friends....the three "B's" (beer, bar-b-que & bikes). Sit around, oogle over new bike parts in catalogs ....beat each other up over shimano vs. campy...etc... Then use the wife's credit card to order stuff!

My daughter hosted something like that - it was a party for some kind of makeup. She had teenage girls all over the house giggling. They were even in my bathroom (the master bath for cryin' out loud - where was I supposed to go with my Cycle Sport?) doing each other's hair.

So, if we do this with bikes we need the same sort of bonding ritual. What would that be? Arguing Campy vs Shimano doesn't see like enough. It needs to be more personal and physical.

Shaving each other's legs? Now, that's creepy.

But there has to be something touchy-feely involved to make the experience complete.

I would think that if you invited the right Campy vs. Shimano guys, and provided enough alcohol, it could get REAL physical. Course all of the smooth legged, fancy boy Campy guys would get their's kicked.
