    We have been granted permission by the moderation team to post this message from our Study's Principal Investigator and a link to the survey here.


    Cycling Forums Members,

    The Department of Urology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is conducting a study on the possible link between cycling, erectile dysfunction, and other men's health issues. Currently there are very few studies which have examined this topic in a rigorous scientific fashion. To advance the knowledge on the subject, we are asking male cyclists who are at least 18 years of age to complete a short survey (approximately 10 minutes) containing questions about themselves, their experience with cycling, their overall health, and their sexual health.

    Our intent is to use this information to better understand if there is a link between cycling, erectile dysfunction, and other men's health issues. Health care providers as well as other men and their family members may benefit from this information and knowledge.

    This survey is completely anonymous and confidential and conducted through an independent third-party. There is no way to connect your name with your responses. We do not track email or IP addresses. Participation in this research study is voluntary, and you may refuse or quit at any time. There are no known risks to you from taking part in this research study.

    By clicking the survey link below you acknowledge that you are at least 18 years of age and consent to participate in this study.

    Thank you for your time and consideration,

    Landon Trost, MD
    Study Principal Investigator

    I TRIED to take that fucking moronic survey! I fucking TRIED!

    How many miles this?...How many hours that?...What percentage blah blah blah?

    For fucks sake!

    I just fucking gave fucking up!

    Let's just say I'm 62 years old, have been racing and training like a road warrior and a Keeper of the One True Faith since I was 18 and still manage to knock the bottom out of wife number three and don't need no steekin' Viagra yet 'doc'.

    Jeezus H. Tapdancing K-rist on a pogo stick! What fucking moran writes these monkey ass surveys?

    @CampyBob, I wonder if updating to both the latest version of your favorite browser (I use Firefox myself, or Chrome) and the latest version of Adobe Flash Player will help you with this survey.

    Thanks a ton

    Bob

    Oh. I'm quite certain the good doc is for real.

    After seven surgeries for polio, one bowel re-section, a tonsillectomy, a few busted bones and all the usual assorted maladies and ailments I know a little about medicine.

    I also know I'm NOT going to sit a fucking computer trying to remember 44 years worth of cycling with any kind of accuracy with regards to what percentage of time or miles at which efforts over this that or the other events and at how many MPH averages I do a what levels of % of max heart rate well...what was the question? Oh yeah. Now I remember...fuck that shit.

    Now, if someone wants to know how many years I've been riding and at what level and how long it takes me to get a nut when momma's in a good mood...I'll fucking tell them right fucking directly.

    Maybe they want to know my saddle brand/model, the degree off horizontal it's installed at and how many hours per week I spend on the drops into a wind of more than 9 MPH.

    Oh...for fucks sake. Again. If someone else wants to sit through that survey, more urine flow to them. My plumbing's just fucking FINE.

    I haven't used Mozilla in years and I despise Chrome. That jacked up POS looks like it was aimed at third grade Dell users. Retarded ones at that.

    Microshit Edge blows donkey ballz.

    I'm still using good old Intarwebz Exploder (aka Lock Up At Will).

    I have the latest Flash.

    WTF does any of THAT crap have to with a game of 100 questions that couldn't possibly be accurately answered without going over 4 and a half DECADES of cycling log books and floppy disks (NOT to be confused with floppy dicks...I suppose that's some bone of contention the survey is looking to assess) and CD's and DVD's worth of data.

    I could not possibly begin to even guess at averages of back when I was an itinerant bike racer as opposed to a collegiate athlete as compared to a Master racer or my training as a para-Olympian or my efforts in the Senior Games or the years spent as a crit dog or the summers I loafed doing century after century just for shits and giggles or the summer I spent hauling 40-45 pounds of gear around Europe.

    There is such a thing as a flawed surveys and this, my friend, is one fucked up bag of questions.

    The doc's interests in life...

    Interests
    •Male infertility

    I have a fertile mind. Does that count?

    •Microsurgery

    Are you saying my schlong is small?

    •Oncofertility

    No cancer here. Yet.

    •Male hypogonadism and testosterone deficiency

    Well, I do have big ballz and Lance gave me a hit of 'T'.

    •Erectile dysfunction

    Two words: Blue pill.

    •Peyronie's disease

    Sounds like something you get in a French whorehouse.

    •Male sexual dysfunction

    When it comes to ANY male sex I'm not going to function. Period.

    •Vasectomy reversal

    Not necessary. The boys are still swimming.

    •Varicocelectomy

    Is that like that shitmaNO Di2 crap?

    •Implantation of penile prostheses

    NOW we're talking! I still want to star in a couple of pron flics. It's on my bucket list!

    I see your point, CampyBob. I was a little slow at first and thought you were having trouble submitting your survey answers -- possibly due to an outdated browser. I quickly realized that is not the issue, the questions the doctor is asking are.

    I'm still laughing myself silly as I read your posts. Ha ha ha!

    Maybe the doctor can just ask everyone to keep a cycling diary for 3 months and send them to him by postal mail.

    Thanks a ton

    Bob,

    A few probing questions...er...the survey needs to be simplified. Shortened. I'm 62 and could be dead before I finished that thing.

    I don't mind trying to help a guy out with his research, but I'll be damned if I'm donating my left nut.

    5 minutes...max. And I shouldn't have to strain my brain trying to think about averaging out shit from the last season's worth of rides, let alone all the years many of us have swung a leg over a racing bike.

    Hell, I've seen tire pump surveys, night riding light surveys and would you try this new helmet surveys that were done better.

    I am not sure that physician even reviewed the survey he put out.

    Probably had a intern put it together with minimal instructions as to the information desired.

    Actually confusing with respect to the most intense workout, moderate workout, and easy participation. I started with the assumption that they were looking for information on the most intense cycling I had done, when I had a 40 mile round trip commute that I did up to six times a week.

    As I dug in deeper, I was not sure if they were after my current annual cycling habits or my historical cycling habits.

    I also think that they should be looking into seat height vs handle bar height as well.

    But what do I know, I only have a MS and PE after my name.

    Regards,
    Cranky

    This thread makes me think about Lance Armstrong's testicular cancer. Is this survey related to that? Of course, I am not involved in any way with the survey but I have some concerns. When you say sexual health, the first thing that comes to mind is impotence of a man. But to me, what's more important is the prevalence of prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Is riding related to these diseases? Good luck to that survey which seems to be too difficult to accomplish as evidenced by the comments above.

    Hmm glad I didn't open the thing. But I'm 52 and it might be quicker to just post a few homegrown action pictures or videos as proof to show it still works after 20 years of cycling. :lol:

    Men's sexual health and the mayo clinic. Ok thanks for that. The best way to stay healthy sexually is to eat raw. The raw food diets jack up the sexual performance. Meats and processed foods will put you on viagra. Vegetarian and vegan is the best way. Vegan will make you like a super hero that won't turn you back into a teenager. The longevity is superior. Sensitivity and sensation is intensified. Put that on the study.

    It did demand a lot of detail.

    You know, Lim...in Capitalist America I would consider myself VERY fortunate if a physician spent more tham FOUR MINUTES diagnosing my 'erectile dysfunction' and ordering all manner of tests and prescriptions. And the bill for that 4 minutes of medical expertise would set me and my insurance company back thousands of dollars.

    And while I do not have a problem with any of that I will be go to Hell before I click my way through 45 minutes of brain torture trying to assist medical science (or some moronic drug company's junk science research, more likely) with study of how cycling affects pissing and fornicating...both of which I'm still doing just fine at!!!

    Now...if the good doctor is truly interested in crunching numbers beyond what some dipshit computer algorithm can 'analyze' I will gladly sit down with him over a couple cups of coffee and we can pour over my old log books, online logs, STRAVA data, my old 3.5" floppies, my CD's and DVD's and he can measure my personal collection of road bikes that I've used over the years to his heart's content...and a competitive rate of $125/hr. payable in the legal coin of the realm.

    I'll for go the payment in lieu of his medical practice providing me with:
    1. A supermodel from Sweden
    2. A soundproof room
    3. A stopwatch graduated in tenths of a second...for research purposes, of course.

    Yes. I will make these sacrifices for the betterment of my fellow man.

    What more can I say? I'm 63, I've been riding since 19, I've used about a dozen different saddles (none having cutouts or center channels), and the pecker still works (but, immediately after riding, for only having a wee).
