while ascending on a hot day, one of the biggest faux pas (sic) a person can make on a bike?
I just love the nature boy feel, kind of like being twelve again, doing laps around the neighborhood on my 2-speed Stingray in the summertime...

I'm with you. I don't think I'll be doing it this year until I lose a few pounds, but if it feels good, why not? One of the problems with a lot of road riders is that they've forgotten it's supposed to be fun.
road bike = fine; mtb = badlaffeaux

I went over the bars once without a shirt while mountian biking. Landing on your back on a fireroad without a shirt is enough to make you never ride shirtless again. It took about an hour for the nurse in the emergency room to get the drit and dust out from the scrapes. I thought I'd broken my ribs, but it was just all of my muscles contracting from loosing a lot of skin.

You're a lot less likely to endo on a road bike. Ride how you want.

So I learned on an earlier post, but I'll do it anyway. When it comes to clothes, what feels good is good.
