Never been on a road bike since I was a kid testing my big brothers old Raleigh!
Lasted an hour or so before I went back to my BMX, swearing never to ride a skinny bike again.
Roadies are in training mode for le tour, so don't expect too much from them when there rolling, same as they don't always understand mtbs, we have to still remember its not just because we enjoy 2 wheels we have to be the same.
It's like when I'm in the gym, I don't tend to sit there and chat for 2hrs, I'm in, workout, then out, nothing but the odd nod or hi, to others.
Oh, I tend to do the same on bike rides too, nod or even chat if I'm stationary, tend to get lots of interest with the bikes I have/had.
