Barrie; Since I replyed to you off list, thought you might reply back that way. Believe it or not around here if you ride an on topic bike, that is not displayed with all the snobby stuff, that someone might think is right, you get looked down on. This is the very reason why I would proudly where my new shirt. I have been snubbed by certain people around here because I am not good enough plain and simple. I thought bike people would be different but guess what not so.
People have more then one thing to do and don't get some of the simplest things, as soon as you tell me what should be obvious I will get a big laugh and enjoy how unsmart I am. From someone who got over how important it is to know everything, for most part.

burning gas is just as much fun as riding a bike
