    Yep. i'm so much happier being a cripple now! no one to ride with, {OK - *one* guy in Phoenix, we ride twice a year!} no one to talk gear with {NICE walker!!!} only one bike in the whole world to ride off road with one option {color} I only have *one* shoe option {14EE with a 1.75 lift on the left? what do you mean you don't stock those!} I get to ride on a titanium frame with sealed bearings *all day!* {quicky ti wheelchair} i have custom carbon componentry {KAFO - knee, ankle, foot orthodic} great web forums with catchy threads like "suicide" "new injuries" "exercise & recovery" and my fave, plain old "pain". and nobody, NOBODY gives a shit what i wear. You may want to consider coming over to my side - it's GREAT. Rant right back atcha, cry me a river. I have to go polish a frame for some lucky guy now & then try and fix one of my broken one-offs so I can go for a grovel again some day. Best, - Garro.

    sometimes somebody needs to hit the "refresh" button for you all. glad to do it. you all own me beer + a trip out in the woods to spot me on the sketchy parts if you ever visit. Bike Culture is cool. I miss it very much. It's all i can do some days to keep it together when the group rides meet at my house & everyone goes but me. Don't feel sorry for me {that's the last fucking thing i want - shoot me 1st} just feel stoked for YOURSELVES. have a great weekend, it's a beautiful world - Garro.

    I like Assos and Rapha and once the bills stop rolling in for my up coming wedding I'll buy more. It's quality stuff, what can I say.

    It's more like a trial of feats of strength, where each trial is incrementally harder, but you somehow adapt and prevail, or you just perish. And I'm not sure when the trials end, really.

    Any rant that attracts a Garro rant is a worthwhile rant.

    too many is the answer.

    not demeaning the info but the numbers wont get you into the break when shiit happens.
    the heart will.

    That's dead nuts on. All last year on the group rides I destroyed myself. Everyone else would set in and conserve for the sprint. Sprint? On a effin training ride? I would throw myself off the front...stay gone...get caught...rest and then go again. Alot of times I would come draggin in way off the back. I caught greif for not being able to hang by some. I guess they didn't I wasn't tryin to learn to hang, I was learning to suffer.
    I have no doubt that all those miles off the front suffering alone in the wind paid off. When I got in the break a couple of weeks ago I knew what was in store and I was ready for it. Got me my first podium in a big boy race. YMMV

    what's the diff between a cat 5 with an SRM vs a cat 2 with one? hint: the cat 2 is faster. unless you're a pro, it's all overkill. life is hard, overkill is fun sometimes

    Rants are like one-night-stands. They seem like a good idea at the time, but after... Don't worry MaineMike, I grew up in Maine, so I care.

    That said, let the kids be kids. If they're channeling ghosts of Balmamion past as a means of finding their way in the world, it's all good. Shit, I once thought the leader singer from Flock of Seagulls had awesome hair. We've all been there, appropriating some slice of culture and thinking that we're being original in the process.

    For the record, Rapha product is awesome, and for such a young and still small company, they have done boat-loads for cycling. The folks behind it are passionate cyclists, and pretty damn good ones at that, so if they make a few bucks by making their passion their living; I say good on them. If the marketing is a bit too much, don't buy the stuff, but that'd be your loss.
