    How should I kill myself...

    "Sexicutioners"? Man, what a concept. One wouldn't realize whether he's coming or going - pun intended. This thread is quite sick, twisted, dark and evil which is why I like it so. There was a movie I saw in the 70s(?) about a Viking warrior who was in a funeral pyre in the ending - it was...

    Why Cycling shorts should always be black

    Hey there less'go - any reaction to the creative post #62 back on page 5. I thought it was really funny, but alas, the talent scouts haven't come a-knockin'. :( I actually own a pair of all-pink riding shorts and I fold the "magic cucumber" in half for no one! :D PS - You live in Paris...

    Greg Lemond - Fearless

    Yesterday (5/28 Saturday) morning I had a chance to ride a bike shop's promotional group ride with Greg LeMond. The nature of the route precluded him moving up and down the peloton of 50 or 60 people, but here's my report. The man was friendly, cordial, interested in what I had to say, and...

    Cycling vs. other aerobic activies

    Repair or replace - check this out: www.charitedisc.com/ If they perfect this new disc thing I may run and racquetball again some day.

    Cycling vs. other aerobic activies

    Yes! Pavement is to blame - dang. The next question is: how many eons of time will it take before we develop the shock absorbing spines, knees, ankles, etc. through evolution that'll allow us to sprint through the concrete jungles of modern humanity injury-free? Ain't going to happen any time...

    Cycling vs. other aerobic activies

    Doctor M - Hear! Hear! I've had 2 surgeries to fix up blown out discs and deal with the repercussions from time to time. The causes for the blow-outs were abuse of my body by lifting lots of heavy stuff and twisting with it when I worked in a liquor store when I was a strapping High School...

    Greg Lemond - Fearless

    I did not see any TV shows about Greg LeMond or see any interviews of him to date. BUT! Check this out: Bicycle Village in Boulder, CO is having some big store event on May 28th, 2005 and they've got Greg LeMond leading a group ride. You have to sign up in advance and I've been told it will...

    Why Cycling shorts should always be black

    Right on, Phuong L - we're actually on the same page and I like your reply. Reality is far more sexy than fakery. Personally, I try to see one beautiful thing about any woman I meet and think what one does means more than what one says. (I was particularly impressed how a boyfriend of yours...

    Why Cycling shorts should always be black

    L: You go girl! If some guy doesn't like you for who you are, show that shallow, worthless, good-for-nothing creep the door. How can men be that way, huh? I mean, didn't their mothers teach them better? Why do they turn out like that? It's despicable. Certainly YOU would date an...

    Why Cycling shorts should always be black

    OK everyone, you need to go back and read the posting on page 5 Long Rider left about detachable male appendiges (spelling?). Sorry if it's a bit long, but I cannot believe no one but Wilmer13 (a cool guy in South America) replied to it. Let's get some feedback here! Such creativity deserves...

    Most important athlete of all-time?

    I think Beckham is a tabloid cover star isn't he? Actually didn't he leave some powerhouse team Manchester United and go to a non-British club? Is he like the best player now? I kept seeing a title for something - a movie? - "Bend it like Beckham" some months ago. Could he work in steel...

    Most important athlete of all-time?

    I am impressed that you can mention names like Elway, Marino, etc. They were 2 of the very best to play quarterback - that's the guy that gets the ball to start most plays and who usually throws it to or hands it to another teammate. He's the leader of the offense. William "The Fridge" Perry...

    Most important athlete of all-time?

    Right on, House! I admire all great athletes, but like I said in an earlier post - this question seems to be viewed by many as a popularity contest. Not disparaging anyone's views as to what is "important" is good, but I like to see a reason for why a particular athlete IS important outside of...

    Nice sentiment - ride on! (20 years? That's fabulous.)

    Most important athlete of all-time?

    Hey everyone - I'm still new at this Forum stuff, so thanks for letting me join the game. This has been a fun thread to read - as an American I was pitifully and admittedly ignorant of important athletes of the world - thanks to Limerick and the last post for mentioning other athletes and their...

    Most important athlete of all-time?

    To international members I must apologize for my lack of knowledge on non-USA athletes, but these are worthy of cosideration: Muhammed Ali Babe Ruth Jackie Robinson Jesse Owens Cool question!

    Road/Mountain Biking in Co Fruita

    I drove through Fruita on the way to the Skinny Tire Festival ride early in March around Moab, UT. The pictures you attached look great - check out Moab some time, it's breathtaking!

    Sensitive Shaving Question for the Ladies

    OK, all you bushwackers, I have a confession. Some years ago I was dating a hair stylist and we went scuba diving. She insisted on giving me a "trim" before we flew to Belize. Talk about a weird, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Standing on a chair, totally naked, with a woman wielding a pair...
