Posers just piss me off(43 posts)

Posers just piss me offI Love Shimano
Feb 3, 2003 9:28 PM
check this out. Bodysuit, aero shoe covers, TT helmet, TT bike with disc wheel......300 pounds of blubber.

Posers just piss me off.

Oh yeah, he only rides for 10 mins. every Sunday and at around 15 kph. Gimme a break!
You should just kick his assmickey-mac

Seriously, next time you see him, you should tell him he's a poser, beat the crap out of him, and tell him not to ride in your area any more. If he does come back again, tear him up again and ask him why he didn't get the message the first time. It's up to guys like you to rid the streets of posers.
Mickey-mac I am surprised at you!!!!!!!!!Lazywriter

Your true colors are coming out now. Once again, you validated my earlier contention that this sport attracts elitist douchebags.

posers like that just make my day. that will put a smile on my face everytime. the fact that anyone would get upset by that guy goes beyond all reason.
A little harsh?deHonc

Come on mate,

Give him a break - at least he is attempting to lose the blubber - the TT stuff does seem a little over the top but if he wants to do TT's maybe thats all he can afford to buy - the gear isn't cheap. When I first started riding I was 30kg - 66 pounds fatter! I remember someone yelling at me as I passed, "Don't stop fatso". I didn't - I'm fit now - now all I get is the occasional "fagg@%" or whatever because I wear lycra and shave my legs - but I don't give a rat's arse what anyone thinks.

He may be a total tool though!
A little harsh?I Love Shimano
Feb 3, 2003 9:44 PM
Like I said...he only rides once a week for 10 minutes at most. I started my warm up and he finished his workout before I ended. Not to mention, I walk faster than he rides.

I agree, he's good for a laugh.
Are you stalking him?Spoiler
Feb 3, 2003 9:59 PM
Do you stake out his house 24hrs/day? That's the only way you could know how often he rides. Otherwise you're just being an azzhole/troll.
Get that banana out of you @$$ yet?I Love Shimano
Feb 3, 2003 10:08 PM
Or are you as fat as he is?
I'll answer thatSpoiler
Feb 4, 2003 12:46 AM
as soon as you answer my original question. And as a bonus for me, answer another-
Are you just a gutless punk who takes long-distance photos of prospective sexual partners?
I'll answer that tooI Love Shimano
Feb 4, 2003 12:51 AM
No, I just love pissing off guys like you.

If you don't like my post, don't click on it. The title was as clear as daylight. Not my fault your itchy little pointer clicked on it. Now go release your anger on your wife or something.
So you live with the guy? nmKristin

If Indurain ate Pantani....
Actually, if you looked like that, you'd probably be too worried about what other people think to enjoy and compete in the sport you love. There's plenty of greyhounds out there that ride 30+hours a week and still aren't having fun.
quick question there mate...sctri
Feb 3, 2003 10:15 PM
On these little rides you see him on, does he ever smile?

Because what I see is a guy in a parking lot, on a sunny sunday morning, who has a bicycle.

Now in a sport know for snobish, uptight elitist jerks I think it stands to good reason that you should rebuke anyone who looks foolish in their cycling gear.

But really, news flash, you look foolish in lycra, I look foolish in lycra, that guy looks foolish. Ask anyone who isnt a serious or semi-serious rider, they would classify any spandex clad dork as nuts, horribly unattractice, or otherwise unflattering terms.

I bet that a guy who can only ride once a week and spends a bunch cash on his ride and gear, really enjoys those 10 mins, so why dont you sod off and let him enjoy them without your thoughts on his fashon sense and athletic inclination

quick question there mate...I Love Shimano
Feb 3, 2003 10:24 PM
Well, newsflash, he looks 10 times more foolish than I do in Lycra. So why don't you go put another shrimp in the barbie there ok mate? ;-)
so foolishsctri

If its so bad, its begs the question that someone just posted below...

Why photograph?

Why NOT? How hard is it to take a picture? Point and shoot. Upload and post.

If you don't like poser topics, then don't click on them.

Simple as that mate.

Wow man you should look into photojournalist opportunities with the National Enquirer or a similar periodical! Anyone who takes the time to bring his digital camera along with him with the specific intention of taking candid shots of "out of shape" athletes to post them on a chat room and bash them for their physique really needs to start harassing celebrities instead! There's a lot of $ in it and you can feel REALLY great about YOUR perfect lifestyle compared to THEIRS. You rule man!

Get a life, shut up & ride.

C'mon, admit it..you were stifling a laugh when you saw the picture. Anyone who say s no is absolutely lying. Now yo go get a life (what the heck are you doing online at 9 pm???), shut up, and sleep.
My previous post wasn't so off baseLazywriter
Feb 3, 2003 10:36 PM
hugh???? I can see the humor in this post, but I don't begrudge the guy's freedom to do what he wants. You are the elitist douchebag I was referring to earlier. Accept that title.
Hey, hypocrite,mickey-mac
Feb 4, 2003 6:18 AM
how many times have you posted the picture of the overweight guy in the red skinsuit and the goggles for laughs? You elitist snob.
9 pm muwahahaha!!!Mark_E_Smith
Feb 3, 2003 10:46 PM
Now I AM truly stifling a laugh--not only is it not 9 pm here, but I just rode home from work--I get off at 11:30 pm, it's now almost 2 am--I get home, stretch, drink some endurox, and check RBR for nonsense posts like yours, and it takes me an hour and a half to ride the 30 hilly miles home at night, replete with head and taillights, illuminite gear, PLUS I'm overweight as well! LOL!

sucka...
9 pm muwahahaha!!!I Love Shimano
Feb 4, 2003 2:10 AM
whatever you say
agreed!Mark_E_Smith
Feb 3, 2003 11:06 PM
Absolutely. I agree with I Love Shimano regarding his following implicit claims:

a) Any aspiring cyclist who is both "fat" and in possession of top of the line gear, should immediately be either made an object of ridicule and humiliation, or be banned from cycling altogether.

b) The only legitimate cyclist is one who is either "in good physical shape" and has poor quality gear; or perhaps the prerequisite for owning top of the line gear is to be in "good, presentable" shape.

Perhaps I Love Shimano should spearhead a national, nay, global campaign to implement these two criteria for road cyclists. We could really weed out the fat people with nice gear with enough political pressure and a loud, strong voice from the "in shape" cycling community! Hopefully, with any luck, we could discourage ALL obese aspiring athletes from exercising whatsoever! House arrest and mandatory couch-sitting? Anything to discourage people from the sport, I say! Thumbs up, I Love Shimano! Good job!
agreed!I Love Shimano
Feb 3, 2003 11:32 PM
Thanks for the thumbs up! ;-)

The only thing that makes me wonder is the car... Why drive a SUV with a bike in it? Why not ride the bike in the first place, that's what it was made for (although everybody's probably not blessed with perfect roads that start from the home door). I'm sure that there were some less gravitationally challenged poseurs showing off their cars on that parking lot, too!
re: Posers just piss me offI Love Shimano
Feb 4, 2003 3:48 AM
roads aren't good, yes...that's why some of us choose to use a car.
re: Posers just piss me offCJ838
Feb 4, 2003 6:16 AM
I agree with you. Either this is a very funny joke, or this guy is a total poser. I normally don't take part in these kinds of discussions, but this guy makes me laugh. I'll bet he thinks he "looks" really cool. But he can't "bring it" when it really counts. Lose some f#@%ing weight fat a$$. Spend less on trying to look good, and more time training. Then we might have some respect for you. Maybe he wants to do a tri and needs to float through the swim portion.
re: Posers just piss me offI Love Shimano
Feb 4, 2003 6:40 AM
Yes,that's what I meant. He also doesn't take the time to sicialize with the other cyclists..he arrives, assembles his bike, rides for 10 mins, then leaves. So he's like, there for a total of 30 mins.

Of course, we don't make the effort to speak to him because he is never smiling.

Kind of how I picture him
Who thinks Shimano and Lazywriter would make the perfect couple?Kristin

An old grumpy couple. Shimano always nagging Lazywriter, and Lazy--never feeling approval from his lovely bride--would complain insessantly.

Why not talk to the guy and welcome him, rather than publicly deriding him. Attitudes like this are bad for everyone.

Feb 4, 2003 9:27 AM
If you read all the post DOUG...you'd see that HE (fatty) doesn't socialize. Most guys like that won't. They are to embarrassed by their lack of training fortitude all dressed up pretty like that. It's a shame DOUG, that you can't see it. Not everyone want's to be friendly DOUG. I do. I would try to talk to the guy, but he's in it for himself. Probably trying to pick up a betty (that would be a woman to you DOUG). But with that physique, he'll only get small farm animals...maybe DOUG. Sorry we don't meet your standards DOUG. Liberal heart-bleeding "everyone should be friends" talking wanna bee DOUG. Ooops, does this offend you......DOUG?
bad attitudecyclopathic
Feb 5, 2003 4:52 AM
calling Doug a libiral? that's an offense..

on a subject agree with Doug guy must be very insecure to face "stuck up roadie attitude" you just demonstrated hence no socializing. Not that I'd be thrilled to "be friends" with someone who dresses up like Barney but I wouldn't make fun of him either.
bad attitudeCJ838
Feb 5, 2003 6:28 AM
Learn to spell. "libiral", not even a typo, you can't spell.

Why not make fun of him? He put himself out there to be made fun of. He actually motivates people who really want to excercise. I guess you're just perfect.
i wouldnt give him a second glanceishmael
Feb 4, 2003 7:42 AM
he looks like every other dork in spandex...
So...what's your point? (nm)macalu
Feb 4, 2003 10:44 AM
Why not give him the "Poser Test"?SingleThreaded
Feb 4, 2003 12:34 PM
If you really want to solve your problem give him the test. Once he's fully assembled, ride over to him and tell him what you really think of him. Then see if you can outrun him. Then we'll know who the real poser is.
