so ya, how bout we all stop judging others here for their choices. you can laugh at me all you want, but if you had taken the time to talk to me you'd find out that we're very similar and love to ride every freaking chance we get.
^^This, well said.
Got some strange looks and comments riding my giant boulder, fully rigid, cantilever brakes and a 71 HA on Crinkum Crankum a few years back:
Please let me demonstrate the ride around; really it's no trouble.
