I had to look that up.  No, I'm not a cyclist.  I was just amused by what the bike shop in my area put on their marquee.

Looks more like an Apple store that also happens to serve tamales.

As I was over-hauling my 38 yo street bike, I was amused with the end of the year sale at the local bike shop. The kid at the store tried to sell me a new wheel with 8 gears, as 5-gear wheels are obsolete. Couple cables and new tires, plus truing the rear wheel, and I'm good for another 5-6 years. Oh, had to replace the seat, the cover was cracking.

What kinda bike is it? I've got an old Puegott and a Nishiki collecting dust in the garage. My daily ride has an 11 speed cassette.

My favorite bike shop has a nice little lounge area. Good coffee, usually has NASCAR on the TV on Sundays.

Good, now I can overpay by 200% for both my coffee andmy bike in one swift transaction.

I guess my local shop is ahead of the curve.  They always had a pot of coffee and donuts in the back shop for locals.  You know, so the real riders wouldn't scare off the suburbanites and posers.

You need a hobby.  Or a blow job.  One or the other.

Probably both, but still doesn't make my statement any less meaningful.

I second both these statements.

/DOUBLE THIS for the douche comment and DOUBLE FARK YOU for the article sentence making me wish I could strangle the author of it through the screen!
