There are a lot of racers on this forum. Lots of good DH racers ride road bikes to stay in top shape.

Lots of people who ride for fitness and just 'cause they love bikes also ride road.

I think a sub forum for road bike chat (like good, low traffic routes, etc) would be a killer addition.

that's why you set up a tripod, take multiple shots, and use photo stitching software…

If we can see the color of your ass thru the spandex, then your spandex isn't doing the job.

Old, over stretched, see through spandex is the best!

say NO to leg shaving… seriously, i wonder why people who aren't racing in european cat1 protour races shave their legs. unless they're women, in which case it's probably a good idea!

Two reasons

1 - When you crash shaven legs slide better over pavement.
2 - They get massaged ever race day. There's less mess with no hair.

As a certified roadie I would love to see a road bike forum.

Hmmm… interesting idea and most certainly some interesting social re-engineering will take place. Let's see what happens.
