    Wow, Chow, I'm not sure I understand your post. Whose vulgarity is bothering you?

    come on now. I am managing a health club currently and my wife works at one. I actually am pool director/ front desk manager, and I have to say. Riding the newspaper reading recumbant, while sitting back watching the tube is not a ride. I watch folks on them all day and they may burn 5 calories if the newspaper is heavy. Know what you mean about the 60 plus crab. We both do it, we get our ride time to and the long way home from work. Good to talk bb. missed ya.

    This is off-topic............
    I am new here.......but not new to WWW forums.
    Does this forum have a moderator that can lock a thread, give a warning, and ban -> namely Memph.
    This thread should've been locked after page 4.
    Memph is so out of control because he has not recieved warnings or threats to ban.
    This thread is no longer on topic and is a black eye to this forum which to this point has been full of helpful topic/people.
    Pages 5-50+ should've been taken up in Private Message.

    Look everyone- Memph's type is an attention whore, troll, and badass behind a keyboard. Every forum has one- no forum needs one. Responding to his off-topic/insulting comments only feed his ego- this is a game for him- a test of his wit, intelligence, and vocabulary.
    Basically he is a L-O-S-E-R that owns and rides a bike and likes to spend a little part of his day logging on and making an ass of himself. Realize him for what he is- be better than that. Report any of his replies which are off-topic/insulting to a moderator- take this as a wake up call- GROW UP you act like a 3rd grader.
    (We share birthdays and you have 2 years on me- but you wouldn't know it.)
    If you plan on responding- to me or anyone else with something off-topic- take it up in PM.

    thank you- see y'all on the boards!

    Now look, we have a new god of this forum. Who sets the rules.

    No you has to repond to my posts or read them. There are other threads on this site. But most can not stop reading my next posts. Can't wait to see what next comes onto their screen. Ten egg me on even more. Or voice their opinions. The internet is a free place to voice yourself. I write about what most ppl think, but dare not type. The truth shall set you free and I am free.

    Now that you know what this tread contains, you are free not to click on this link. Free not to read my posts. Yet you shall, cause now I have you hooked. I'm the perfect drug.........

    I gotta say, hybrid; in your post you warned everyone not to respond to Memphmann and then you responded to him. I, for one, don't like being told what the party line is and who is off-limits. <shrug> So I guess since this IS the off-topic section, I can keep on responding. Look, I don't like a lot of what he says any more than you do, but what I like less is lack of freedom of speech and a correct party line set forth by fiat.

    From Mymph's response Hybrid appears to be right that Memph is here for an ego trip.
    I havn't and don't intend to read the middle section of this thread.
    I think you picked a very cool topic (cycling fashion and fashion faux pas) to voice your off topic opinion.

    The list missed: sunglasses, can be very cool on a cyclist but the wearing of yellow saftey glasses on a bike should be avoided at all costs.
    Worn out and tranparent lycra shorts. It may be ok to wear these on a solo training ride, but please limit there use to just those rides.

    Any more additions?

    CYCLING FASHION FAUX PAS No.1
    it's got to be a big pointy white helmet, teamed up with a not very aerodynamic big white gown. attaching a burning cross to your headset instead of hallogen lights would finish off this faux pas. i hear this is what they where in some areas of canada.

    White cycling underpants (with a black crotch pad) worn as shorts?

    Never heard of that in Canada, but I've seen people HERE wear it! I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama amid Klan rallies and police brutality and now you have a clue as to my negative and persistent reaction to mindless discrimination and bigotry.

    Have you seen pictures of me riding...

    You have Canada mistaken for down South. We have too much snow up here to wear white. Would never be seen. How would the crazy drivers on their dog sleds hit us......

    Thanx, had a good two days of riding. Got caught in the rain on Saturday, and nearly froze. Sunday was cold but not wet.

    Getting too cold, so not too many riders still out for me to chase down :( Waiting patiently for the spring and a new herd of fresh meat....

    What a difference. We rode part of the Natchez Trace yesterday down into Mississippi; it was 83 F (about 28 C). Rode through deer, wild turkey, cotton fields, and Indian mounds. Stopped to see where George Colbert (a Scot/Indian) charged Andrew Jackson $75,000 to ferry his troops across the Tennessee River in about 1810. Great ride.
