mental patient? Your anger for perceived posers is entertaining. As far as I know, this is a free country and people can do what they wish with their money. You seem bitter and angry that others can afford things you cannot. So be it.
I know a lot of people who are middle class hard working people who have a passion or hobby. They spend their monies on these pursuits because they enjoy it and not because they are rich and have $ to piss away. It may be annoying to see a gear junkie who skis once and then goes out a buys the best equipment, but you are not paying his/her bills so shut the fu(k up. The day the $$$ comes out of your pocket is the day you can dictate how people spend their $$$$.
As far as you dropping the poser on a Hoopty of a bike, more power to you. I am sure he is not losing sleep over it though. Actually, he probably sleeps like a baby if his bank account is proportionate to the $$$ he spends on gear with his BMW and Audi. I am not a rich guy by any stretch of the imagination but I defend people's rights to do as they please with their own $$$$$. It is all relative anyway. A millionaire can buy a Serotta like a factory worker struggles to pay for a entry level Schwinn. WHO CARES as long as both get enjoyment out of it.
If a fat guy is on a nice bike with all the gear, good for him that he is trying. Cycling is a unique sport in that poser labelling is more readily possible than basketball which requires sneakers and a ball. Or are you going to question what kind of sneakers one is "worthy" of based upon their skills on the court? You are a moron. Enuff said.
