|It seems that no matter the intent of the original poster, any use of the following terms will lead to inevitable flame wars:
8. stem height/angle
And on Non-cycling forum:
Insert any of the above into any thread to spice things up a bit if you get bored. Stand back and watch the fun! Did I miss any?

|I currently own an Airborne Manhattan project but I want to replace it with a Litespeed Ultimate. I have spec'ed it with a triple, a mirror and an adjustable stem. I will call Litespeed to ask about a custom fit. My rides are mostly on bike paths and I drive to them in a huge SUV. Since I started doping (and shaving) my average speed has increased dramatically but I know its really about the bike so I'll get those $2800 carbon fiber wheels.|

Oct 4, 2002 3:35 PM
|Phrases guaranteed not to get you invited back to the group
ride (politically incorrect straight ahead);
"Your bike sucks. Get a Huffy."
"Clipless pedals suck. They don't even have clips anyway..."
"Yeah, I don't wear a helmet. They're for IDIOT people..."
"Those italian bikes are dumb. Who can pronounce "Ciocc" anyway?"
"Campy? Who ever wanted to ride a bike with camping equipment anyway?"
"My Magna comfort bike beats the pants off that Colnago crap any day."
"Vittoria? I go for the Wal Mart tires. They're faster than some namby-pamby tire."
"Quit messing around and start riding good. You guys are too slow......"
"Anyone got any crystal meth? I need to get ready for the ride....."
"Lance who? He couldn't be as awesome as ME on my Magna!"

examples- I was commuting home today, and I starting drafting off this guy on his fancy Colnago. He had the nerve to turn around and ask me not to draft. I can ride anywhere I want!!! What is this guys problem?!
I was commuting home today on my new Colnago, and I find this guy drafting off me without announcing himself. I politely asked him to give me some space, and he told me he would ride anywhere he wanted to! What is this guys problem? BTW- I threw my frame pump in his front wheel two miles down the road. Should I ask him to pay for the cost of the pump he smashed?
