    Aerobars on a hybrid?

    Below are trekking bars. Last year I saw a road bike that had these mounted spun around so that the open part was farthest away from the saddle. It had bar ends in it pointing upwards and forwards. So the result was one could stretch way out in an aero position and grab the bar ends like on an...

    Baselayers and bibs

    I once was in a ski gondola at Sugarloaf Maine on a pretty cold day. A guy across from me was only wearing a light cloth plaid jacket and no hat. I guess we looked at him a bit strangely and all he said was. "Canadian." I used to live in Rochester NY and nobody there would have worried about...

    You are the first Canadian I've heard worrying about getting cold. What's with that?

    Cost of petrol / Gasoline

    In the 3 months since you posted this, gas prices have come down quite a bit with lower prices likely. (Oil was $77 a barrel today.) So I guess that prices alone won't be much of an incentive to conserve or commute by bike. The cost of a gallon of gas is apparently not much of a factor. No...

    Don't worry. The number of people making poor choices is not going down.

    Since you are running out of material on the Strava case, have veered to SRAM vs Campagnolo, maybe this is a good time to get your opinions on Leica cameras or Nikon vs. Canon, Chevy vs. Ford, Ginger vs. Marianne while you are at it. That should be good for 10 more pages at least. I hope you...

    Hey I too think it probably isn't Strava's fault. Not even .1% But all the rest of what you wrote won't let me agree with you on much of anything. I'd take the other side just to spite you. So if you are trying to convince anyone, your approach is failing. But the ranting is pretty funny and...

    I think some members of this forum are about ready for a class action suit against you. However, I find it very entertaining so I hope you can keep it up and also find a lot more subjects to rant about. Maybe even start your own web site or tv show. Doesn't "CampyBob" mean you are camping it...

    CampyBob, isn't it time to explain to everyone that you are putting us on? Some people seem to think you are being serious.

    Like "The pen is mightier than the sword.' Are there any other groups or policies that you feel is ruining our society or is it just some low level frivolous law suits that you want to scapegoat? I have much bigger fish to fry. As an owner of a coal mine I hate that those libtards won't let...

    Cost of petrol / Gasoline

    I found parts of a fossilized giant sequoia stuck in my natural gas line just last week. If it is not from decaying plants and animals, where did this gas come from? Did god create it? Wouldn't that be religious? BTW, the price of petrol had been coming down lately.

    You can never tell what will come up in court. Before he had his day in court, OJ looked pretty guilty too. Yet he was found not guilty. That's the price we pay for our legal system where money can make the difference in the kind of "fair' trial you get. There are lots of cases that are...

    On the bright side it fits in with your prejudices and gives you something to rant about. So that should make you happy.

    I have a friend who complains about liberals and the court system sort of as you do. He seems to have forgotten that when his wife died 22 years ago he sued the doctor for malpractice and received a substantial amount of money. Also this bumper sticker is on the back of my niece's car. She...

    I know. The constitution was written by a bunch of "libtards." Why don't we be patient and see what the facts in the case are? Do you think the old woman who merely wanted McDonalds to pay for her $20,000 of medical bills is somehow greedy, but the company that continued to sell scalding...
