soze: Carth: mbillips: Carth: MutantMotherMouse: Ex-Texan: I*'ve done a few  century rides, as well as 150 mile rides, and run a few 10-20ks, but if I was equipped, I'd just use my .45 acp, and wait for the cops. 230 grains will stop them real fast. All my bikes are insured, so there's that. No deductible.
cheapest one I bought was a little over $1300, so there's that too.

First time Mr. MutantMotherMouse paid $3k for a bike, I flipped a bit. I quickly learned that is chump change in biking. Give me a good pair of running shoes and socks, a scenic trail & a water bottle & I'm good to go.

As long as he wasn't armed, I totally understand this chick running after the dude. Insured or not, it's the principle. She would've figured out quickly if she could outrun him. Just keep on his trail, screaming bloody murder, and wait for the cops to show up.

Bikes are a lot more expensive but at least you don't need to buy a new pair ever 3 months like running shoes.

Set of tires costs about as much as a pair of shoes. And who wears out a pair of running shoes in three months?

I got through a pair every 10-12 weeks at 50-60 mpw. The thing that gets me about cycling is even after you buy a bike you end up spending hundreds of dollars on pedals, race wheels, a decent trainer. You almost need a whole room to store all the accessories that come with it.

But the endless parts shopping!  It amazes me that more women aren't into bikes.  All the little doo-dads you can buy for your bike are just fun.

Right now, I'm looking at buying new brakes.  $129 each (you buy two for a full bike's worth).  But they're made in the US and anodized black or silver.  Eeeeee!

Also, I am as angry at Salsa for discontinuing the Delgado rims as other women would be about OPI discontinuing "her" lipstick color.


Since I got into cycling I give my wife much less of a hard time about spending hours shopping for little things. I know the mental state after spending 2 hours comparing various helmets  for aero vs heat retention.

That's because you are a Luddite. You need to buy a 3D printer. Just download the part you need, print it out, and disintegrate it when you're done.

Oh geez. Our son was into competitive BMX during his teens. If only he spent as much time gathering sponsors as he did breaking shiat (both bike and body) and lusting over parts catalogs ... He learned the hard way about ALWAYS locking his car when someone lifted a bike body in a matter of minutes. *BOOM* $1,500 of his hardearned money literally right out the window. Thank goodness they didn't have the time or smarts to go for the packages of smaller parts sitting nearby.

No kidding.  I know there's no perfect defense, but I have a saddle lock, a Dutch bike lock for my front, and I throw a Bulldog Mini through the rear triangle.  If some thief is going to get my bike, they're going to have to put some sweat equity into earning it.

I'm a little astonished -- and quite proud -- that none of the comments have been about the chick's MILF-ish-ness, sharp knees, and/or placement on the smoking hotness scale. Can it be that FARK is ... maturing ... evolving ... ::shudders::

He just threw his stuff in the back seat of his car. When it was all broken down, it didn't take up a lot of space and -- being a teenager -- his main concern was getting from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible. He learned to lock his stuff down that day because it was his money spent -- not mom and dad's or a sponsor's.

So how much did you pay for the lightest bike possible just to lug around three locks?

I ride a steel frame because it's cheaper for me to take a dump before riding around than it is to try to shave 300g off of my bike.  ;)

I think my bike is around 30lb, and the only carbon fiber is the right side brifter (the carbon fiber brifter set was a gift from my mother; I busted the internals of its mate last year and replaced it with an alloy version of the same generation).  I really, really like it.  We're best friends.  His name is Party Orca.

Okay, my new gay disco shoes have carbon soles, but the plastic ones were killing my feet with all the flex.  That was done for comfort and totally doesn't count.

Just to do drive-by's.  Going back and forth between work and grad school is a time killer.

yes because your insured bike is worth someone's life. a gunshot to his back as he was trying to flee might not go so well for you when the cops show up
