    The reason why I marked this 'Semi-OT' is 'cause my new bike is a road bike. Yeah, yeah, this is a
    MTB group and most of you wouldn't be caught dead on one, but I figure a bike is a bike. If I have
    to pedal it to make it go, I don't care if it's a MTB, a 'bent, a road bike, a cross bike, a BMX or
    a Track bike. It's a bike. Opposite to what a lot of others think, *I* think road cycling is closer
    to MTBing than dirt cycling is. Besides, if you look at really old pictures of the Tour de France,
    those guys were way more hardcore mountain bikers than us.

    Interestingly, I feel like telling THIS group about my new bike because I've been a semi-participant
    for so damn long. Besides, most roadies are snobs.

    Gruppo for Christmas)

    Now I have something to ride while I wait for the trails to dry up. :)

    In my experience most POSEUR roadies are snobs, many genuinely strong roadies aren't. This has been
    reinforced by my experience as a bike shop employee. I fact, I've seen many a real roadie, with a
    genuine love for cycling, fall in love with the trails. <G>
