Top RBR inflammatory terms?(44 posts)

Top RBR inflammatory terms?DougSloan
Oct 4, 2002 10:21 AM
It seems that no matter the intent of the original poster, any use of the following terms will lead to inevitable flame wars:

1. Airborne
2. Litespeed
3. fit
4. custom
5. SUV
6. triple
7. mirror
8. stem height/angle
9. countersteer
10.bike path
11.doping

And on Non-cycling forum:
1. Bush
2. Ashcroft
3. guns
4. environment
5. religion
6. Saddam
7. oil

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.
I assume you will spec it with a Record/DA mixUprwstsdr

How not to get invited back to the group ride.....aliensporebomb
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!"

Gods, horrible.
It's not about the bike... (nm)irregardless

how about DRAFTING?peloton
Oct 5, 2002 7:22 AM
Drafting-

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?
