Lost in space, poor guy....(10 posts)

Lost in space, poor guy....No_sprint

Last Sat. after a moderate ride I was sittin' down at a local sidewalk cafe having a latte. Up rides a poor lost fellow, how did I know he lost? Well, he was in some kinda shorts, don't know if they were mtb shorts or not, some kind of loud cycling jersey packed to the limit with who knows what, but I think the kitchen sink was in there too. Camelback and all. What's he on? A nice white and new Kestrel 200 SCi equipped a triple, mtb pedals, Spinergy RevX with all the stickers. So, once again, how did I know he was lost?

Gone are the drop bars and in their place are grip shifters and one of those curved straight bars, two retractable mirrors on the ends, mtb bar ends, big black sqeeze horn and dinosaur right next to it and who knows what else was mounted on that bar.

Glad he's out there on a bike, but too bad he was lost. I couldn't help him out because he didn't know where he wanted to go. I'm sure he's still lost.
Can we please talk about cycling and not fashion. nmDave Hickey

All the fashion police bs makes me wish I were fast enough to dress like a geek, ride an old Nishiki, and leave all the fools who care so much about appearances lookin at my sweet ass as I rode off.
He's not lost...he knows where he's going. nmmenachite

Wait a second....

He had a DINOSAUR mounted on his handlebars?

He was probably tired - those things are heavy.

Amazing the frame could handle two passengers....

Seriously, the man was out riding his bike in the manner he saw fit. He knew exactly what he wanted and where he was going. The best part was that he didn't give a shit what you or anyone else thought about it.

He might be a bit more comfy with some advice on cycling clothing and what to carry on the bike. Don't get in his way though, he's knows where he is going and he got a horn to move your butt out the way if you slow him down.

Go pimp-man! go!
