I saw that yesterday and found it quite humorous and reminiscent of the discussions we have here.

I can't wait for the Onion headline: "Female friend breaks it to 30-year old friend that he dresses like an old man."

Right up until the point where it turned into a gay sex fantasy.

Considering I wear my mid-rise pants down at my hips, well below my navel, you must be either dumb as fck or blind. Good luck with that.

I can see some "Freds" getting offended by this.

"Freds" can burn in hell, for all I know. This is the same as explaining to a POS slob the merits of wearing a $2k suit, if you can buy one for $129.00 in a nearby dept store

I very sincerely hope that the owner of that thing actually races competitively and doesn't just use it to run errands.

With toe clips and mirrors? Doubt it.

With those wheels and that handlebar, there exist precisely zero events in which one could legitimately race that bicycle.

Looks like they attached the rack via the brake boss (sketchy) and hose clamps on the carbon seatstays (super sketchy). Quality.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
