... their voices are no longer cracking up. (One day when you pick up the phone, the voice on the other end is suddenly a nice, smooth baritone: "Helllloooo, can I please speak to Lana?"

2. Cougar bars. Where are the cougar bars?

3. A bike without at least 5 cm of spacers is considered a "new-fangled racer"
4. High cadence is considered as useless and silly.
5. Gel seats are the the "in" thing
6. Beeping from being out of HRM zone is actually reminder to take your pills.
7. Endurox/Accelerade in bottle is halved with Metamucil

Your tire pressure is less than your ageContinental

Riding fast descents seems dangerous and foolhardy

You don't buy that Rivendell you want because you know it will last longer than you will.

You visit your alma mater, ignore the coeds, and check out their moms.

Your World Champions Jersey turns into a huge rainbow when it goes over your gut.

Primal jerseys don't look cool anymore.

Your favorite spin music is opera.

Your wife knows you would rather ride the bike than ride anything else and neither of you is bothered.
There is a lot of truth in that last statement.....nmDave Hickey
