You realize how silly some of those bikes look, right?

you really are a miserable guy arnt you,do you ever have anything nice to say at all????

personally i couldnt give a crap what you think,as far as i can tell you just come on here to put people down,just chill,and be happy. :P :P


But of a harsh response to what, in all due honesty, is a valid comment...

...you may get plenty of comments on the rather 'eclectic' mixture of mismatched parts on that bike, but I'm willing to bet you won't get many on here from 'the usual suspects' who I suspect would rather poke themselves in the eye with a pointed stick!

Also, you may be under the misapprehension that the green 'sofa' of a saddle on your wife's bike is comfortable but if you were to fit a decent saddle like this...

...for instance, she'd soon notice the difference! It may look like an instrument of torture but if SWMBO can appreciate the wisdom behind it then anyone could!

But, as you say, they are your bikes and you like them as they are; though I dare say there are those who would say they are more suited to posting on Facebook rather than here! :wink:

We all live in democracies...

...everyone is entitled to their own opinion 8)

FWIW the flouro' green mudguards on my cro-mega mark me out as a target for ridicule, even though you don't get much more 'retro' than that! :lol:
