there is something wrong with the handlebars.
You should paint it green and gold.
Is that a 29er?
I wanted lime green, but the Ghost I picked out was >$2000.
This is my first new bike since 1994.
Thanks to the monkeys that helped me overcome my urge to buy blindly online . She got fitted and was very happy.
He's talking about the whole drop bar thing.
New bikes are fun.
That. I thought BV was the smart one here?
Computer smarts != an ability to deal with social interactions.
Does BV have a road bike too?
BV has, uh, some road slicks for the Sovereign so he can suffer along painfully for some rides with the 36t big ring.
Depending on how painful it is, BV may acquire a road bike in the future.
Very. If you don't want to get a road bike, DO NOT go for a ride with her. At all. It usually only takes 1-2 rides of trying to keep up with someone on a road bike before you go out and buy one yourself.
Not every ride is a race.
That's loser talk
You have to try to not drop someone who's riding a mountain bike unless they're in a lot better shape than you are.
I must confess though, I'm a huge fan of racing people who don't know we're racing. Winning practice at DH races is also very important.
And what do we figure the situation is in this case?
(I don't know why I'm posting in this thread)
........and it is a nice bike.
Very nice. But where's the shock?
This. It's not about whether the person on the road bike is consciously trying to race or not, it's more like whether the person on the road bike is consciously trying to ride slow enough that the other person can keep up.
BV is going to get dropped like a bad habit.
And you profess to trying to understand suspension.
What fork is that?
Also, what's the voltage on that outlet?
If the fork joke had been funny, the outlet joke would have canceled it out. Turns out, you're about 6 funny jokes behind right now.
and quite possibly un-american.
Would you mind throwing a translation our way???
That *is* the translation. The original quote was "That's hoser talk", but the Canadian internet providers automatically correct it to what you saw...
They have the Internet in Canada??? Cripes...what has the world come to???
I prefer loco sucks jokes anyways..
Cute...you tagged the thread.
all the more reason for you to get a new bike too!!!
