Site Suggestion: "The Personals"jose_Tex_mex

Whatcha think? We're all talking about how great it would be to meet someone who is in to cycling. Well, why not try and facilitate this?
Although, I imagine the site would benefit the ladies. Probably one female to every fifty guys.
ISO: SF - must ride carbon and be comfortable in skinsuits...jose_Tex_mex

Enjoy long moonlight midnight mtb rides. Thus, she cannot be a pure roadie. However, shouldn't be too granola conversely.

Height - 56cm, weight sub 20lbs, build - racing geometry.

Helping me shave the backs of my quads is optional.

M seeking W highly tolerant and supportive of obsessive cycling lifestyle; 25-45; good stoker and conversational knowledge of pro cycling a plus; will provide all necessary equipment and outfitting; ability and willingness to endure required; enjoy long rides in the mountains and desert, pasta dinners, and Hammergel.

M seeking W Age 25-45. Must be highly tolerant and supportive of cycling lifestyle for the M. Must be able to endure long hours alone at home on weekends and evening while M is out cycling; must be able to endure endless one sided discussions on pro cycling; should have working knowledge of biography of top twenty pro cyclists; must have ready knowledge base of recipes for many pasta dishes; must be willing to arrange all vacations around cycling obsession; looking great in skinsuit a definite positive.

OK...its' pure fantasy. My wife endures some of that and she would look great in a skinsuit.
or even more realisticColnagoFE

M seeking W age 20-28. Must allow M to cycle as much as he wants to without complaining EVER! Must put up with endless and often boring/pointless discussions on the merits of everything relating to cycling and cycling gear. Must wash M's cycling clothes so they are ready for the next ride. Must not critisize spending on cycling EVER! Must believe that spending $5k on a bike is reasonable and justified even if that means not going out on dates for weeks at a time because the M spent all his money on the latest TI doodad. Must cater to the M's schedule, taking his bike(s) to the shop and picking them up, watching his every race and be there at the end of all organized rides to cheer him on (preferably with a cooler of cold beer waiting). Must incorporate cycling into all vacation plans. Must put up with parking outside because the M needs garage space for all his bikes.

OK...basically you've got a maid here right? At least if you remove the sex from it. :)
The maid would be cheaperPaulCL

than the wife/girlfriend. I'm surprised that the ladies haven't weighed in on this one. Maybe the whole idea is so ludicrous that they are ignoring our perfect woman fantasy (the "perfect woman" fantasy would definitely include the sex!) Since I've recently turned 40, the W ages of 20-28 sound pretty good. Afterall, 40 is the first step into "dirty-old manhood".
no, no, noDougSloan

Not talking about a maid. "Stoker" (or competitor) would be more accurate. Someone to ride *with*, not wait around until we return, sort of like MB1. (In the next life.)
OK thenPaulCL

If I was single....the 'stoker' would have to been every so slightly faster than I. That would make it all the more fun.

OH...and also have the maid to take care of the other stuff.
Be careful what you wish for......MB1

Before we got married I had no idea how much Miss M liked to exercise. I was tired for years......
