Common knowlege, simple good sense, and courtesy dictate that grown men don't go around parading their hairy, man-a$$ in public without exposing themselves to the consequences of offense.

It's about time I got some use out of my car's cigarette lighter.
Just a quick "SSSSSSSS" and he'll be shopping for Castellis quick-like.
Dude, I sure hope you're kidding...PseuZQ

With all the road rage and sh8t that goes on, you -- a cyclist -- are advocating burning another cyclist with a cigarette lighter because you feel offended by what he's wearing or not wearing?

Did I miss something here?
I wouldn't burn him because of what he's wearingSpoiler
May 6, 2003 12:24 PM
I'd burn him because I'm a sick freak with a fetish.

Always good to see a Texas station getting some publicity for the cycling citizens of the state--kidding. The truth be told I'll have to call and laugh at my dad because he works at the TV station where the link is posted.

At least he know I wear clothes when I ride.......

tri geeks love this kinda stufftarwheel
May 6, 2003 10:03 AM
I participated on a cross-state tour last summer with a tri geek who wore a thong like that one day. Not a pretty sight, although he seemed to think so.
Looks good on Fernandaflying

Fernanda Keller a Brazilian Model who does Ironman.
I remember the first time she rode past me in a black thong.
hehehheh the image is burned into my mind happily forever.

I do _not_ get this....PseuZQ

I'm not sure I understand what all the fuss is about. This has been all over the news. And to hear some of the quotes from the locals, along the lines of, "keep it in the bedroom" Keep WHAT in the bedroom? His trainer? Is this news because the guy is riding the way he's dressed, or is it news because of the ridiculously prudish response to him?

It's a guy on a bike in a thong. WhoTF cares? Like another poster said, tri-geeks do this all the time. (Okay, that's another conversation entirely, but you get the idea.)
Actually, they don't.brider

Check some of the tri boards (not the RBR one -- almost no traffic there), and you'll see just as negative a reaction to this. Occasionally, a triathlete will wear a Speedo in a race (I did), but NOT in training (unless you're German). The days of Speedos are waning, and NO ONE wears a thong (there's a difference, in case you're ignorant of this fact).

this is one of the funniest threads ever. PseuZQ needs to chill a bit. I don't think Spoiler really wants to smell al that nasty man-a$$ hair burning :O) Oh my cheeks hurt - the ones on my face - from laughing!
OK, OK, just got lunch..PseuZQ

Hey this guys hairy butt made MSNBC tonightLive Steam
May 6, 2003 5:57 PM
The local town folk are upset by it and tonight the whole nation got to see his scantily clad bod on national TV. I got to see quite a bit of it on my 40inch letterbox :O) He does look rather scary! But hey what ever floats your boat as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. I don't think I have a problem with it. You see the same stuff at the beach and worse on TV and in the movies.
Kinda makes shaving your legs look innocuous and normal [nm]speedisgood

Gottschalk's neighbor, 57-year-old Betty Seibold, said she's seen him mowing his lawn and washing his truck in the same thong. "His behavior may seem strange to us, but we are all a little strange in different ways," she said. "We are all eccentric."
