Very true. We're a sad lot though, aren't we?
Err no! We are at the pinnacle of cycling cool. Top class bicycle engineers hand picking the cream of MTB history, restoring it with engineering excellence and artistic flair, then displaying it on this hallowed site like an online rival to the Tate Modern, earning respect and gratitude and undying love from a world of desperate cyclists overburdened by platform damping and hydroformed tubing.
We are not a small band of ageing old duffers huddled in cold sheds and cellars desperately maintaining long forgotten bits of steel and aluminium, forever battling against colour co-ordination issues, tyre logo positioning errors and bafflingly complicated cantilever brake adjustments. We do not endure the moans from long suffering partners confused about why there are 17 different front mechs in the cleaning cupboard or why the house constantly smells of Autosol, or even more why their husbands have bought yet another "pub bike" even though they never go to the pub. We are not experts in conducting cycle business transactions solely using paypal or managing to secure a long lost part for EXACTLY the amount left in the aforementioned account.
