about my pedals. I was disappointed, however, in the number of nasty/joking responses. I had no idea so many of you seem to suffer from bike envy. I hope the cyclists in my town are not as petty and snobbish as many of you appear to be. Maybe you guys need to tell people that only "advanced" riders, such as yourselves, are allowed to have a nice bike. Of course, I guess many of you were never novices when you started as well. Some of us are not that blessed.

Give it a rest, will ya?

Even if you were NOT a troll ala RadRon, you would still deserve all of the disdain you have been handed.

So shove off.

Why do you deserve disdain? Probably because very few people believe your story to be true. It's quite unlikely for someone just starting outto be riding what you say you are. Not impossible but very unlikely.

Cheers,

You really gotta lighten up man.

Do you always take things so seriously? Life is too short...
