Say bro, I was gonna just let the thread die as it seemed like a relatively insignificant trifle, but I figure out of the spirit of understanding I'd give in and reply.

You seem to have assumed that I meant that 150 pound riders are "super light". I guess I am to blame if I failed make myself clear to all who read this, and it seemed to upset you.

So, to clarify:

I never intended to imply that 150 # cyclists are somehow freakishly light and puny and should avoid windy days for fear of being blown into the sky. I never meant for anyone to think that I found 150# riders to be generally malnourished and sickly like Ally McBeal or that they should go eat a sandwich before they implode, or anything of that nature. Nor do I feel that 150 # people (be they cyclists or otherwise) should be rounded up by the authorities and brought here to Fatfarm USA so that we "normal" folks can eat them on hotdog rolls with mustard.

Really bro, I'm not saying that at all.

What I did say (or the jist thereof as my copy function is whacked):

"I do not claim to know what is best for superlight weight riders."


"Cyclists 150 pounds and under may disagree with me"

What I MEANT by this:

I do not claim to know what a light weight rider would want as I am 185 #, so you may think I am a complete moron and should tell me so.


Not that 150 = superlight. But rather that from 150 on down is getting into a lighter area than I claim no expertise in. Dig?

So, no offense intended. Sorry if I upset you. I should have worded it better. My bad.

Cheers you fat bastard!

It was all in good fun, and absolutely no offense was taken to the superlight comment. In fact I took it as a bit of a compliment because usually the only other rider I am compared to is my girlfriend, and *sigh* I think shes blown away in the breeze, again.

Now that I've forgotten what the original topic was (wheels? or tires? who knows...)... no, you're not a moron, just an average joe like me giving his opinion based on experience, which is great. Keep doing it, with or without the disclaimers.

And just for the record, I would prefer to be eaten with ketchup rather than mustard. The red goes better with my jersey.

Peace out bro,

You sure? It'd be Dijon mustard of course!
