Goddamn Hippies!

Mankind is basically a battlefield... a dark cellar in which a well-bred spinster lady and a sex crazed monkey are forever engaged in mortal combat, the struggle being refereed by a rather nervous bank clerk.
-- D. Bannister

 

More and more people are leaving their cars at home, and are re-discovering the joys of biking. You would think that the back-to-nature hippies would be doing cartwheels over this. But no! Now they want the bike to be as natural as possible. They want them to be made out of wood!

So, answer me this: when you're tearing down the Continental Divide at about 70mph, which would you rather be on? A rickety, termite-ridden, wooden bike that may fall apart at any moment, sending you flying head first into oncoming traffic? Or do you want to be on a well-designed bike with a solid metal alloy frame that's strong enough to puncture a hole is Superman's chest?

The choice is yours.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
