Re: Lot of squid posers on this forum (continued)
Before this post gets locked, just wanted to get a word in edgewise here (considering that reference was made directly to me as one of the squids).
Dude, "really," if you're interested in steering the topics towards racing, start racing threads. Considering that you've rid your bike of all the road gear, you could probably post some info in "tech" on all the weight savings you've made on your bike (though, as I've pointed out elsewhere, busting your ass to save four pounds on your bike doesn't do shit if you can't keep your hands off the Haagen Dazs and the ho-hos).
Please don't insult those of us who have accepted the fact that we're not professional racers and instead try to push our bikes hard through the twisties. As far as I'm concerned, that doesn't make us squids---that honor is reserved for, e.g., the jackass I saw going down I-93 into Boston riding a standup wheelie while splitting lanes.
...and if you don't like the Devil pipes, please do tell me why in the thread already open on that topic. If there's substance to your objection, I'd love to hear it.
On the other hand, if you don't plan on taking this forum and its members seriously, then kindly go to hell.
