Poll !!! Share your favorite cycling 'oxymoron' phrases.wasabekid
Feb 27, 2003 9:40 AM
To partly alleviate that cabin fever that had set in, how about sharing your favorite oxymoron phrases?

To start:

1) Racing Triple
2) Affordable cycling apparel
3) Huffy racing bikes
4) Law(traffic) abiding cyclist

Cheers,

W.

Not really an Oxymoron per say, but fun to poke fun of anyhow. That and it makes for a good drinking game.
Along those lines, "on the rivet" gets pretty old too. (nm)sacheson

The simplest observation made by my girlfriend a few weeks ago when she saw Cipo zebra outfit. I still laugh at that. I just never made the connection before, but so true. Why?

I have always wondered of that myself...Bruno S
Feb 27, 2003 1:10 PM
the only time it made sense is when he had his "tiger" skinsuit.

He should have a lion outfit and all other team members a zebra outfit. During the sprint leadout it would look very cool to see the "lion" chasing the zebras.
Have you seen the Litespeed Ad for their Aluminum frames...Swat Dawg
Feb 27, 2003 2:11 PM
In the March 2003 edition of 'Bicycling'mag on page 23 there is an ad for litespeed aluminums that has a Cheetah chasing a gazelle across the plains. I think it is actually a pretty cool ad, and illustrates exactly what your talking about with Cipo.
yes, you can get a wallpaper of that ad....Bruno S

at the new private area of the litespeed website. There is another very cool ad where a Litespeed Sable is being ridden on a dry lakebed and leaving a trail of dust. Very similar to all those car commercials.

You have to give them to them, Litespeed has the best marketing of all bike companies.
