For Matt Keeven- doin' it the hard way.

While I personally like to floss 23 lb bikes with 4" of travel, there are some people that like to do it the hard way. Often times when gearing up for large group rides it is common to hear someone from the group say something about "I'm riding my single speed today so don't wait for me." 9/10 that person should have just said "I'm one slow mammer jammer so I brought this bike so I can use that excuse when I get shelled like chestnuts at Christmas."

Of course there are exceptions as shown in the video and I will probably eat my words for saying this, but it's kinda like 29'ers in the World Class ranks- they aren't winning. Maybe this post will influence CP into trying other avenues of local domination??? It would be a neat test...
