These people could also ride a trekking bike but they prefer looking pro although they have nothing to do with competitive cycling.
This is what I hate about cycling...narrow minded arrogance. Its rife.
Not liking certain frame geometry is fine, but whats the problem that you feel the need to ridicule other less capable riders than yourself? Im 28 years old with a history of lower back problems. Im not as flexible as I used to be so I choose to ride a current Cervelo R3 with the tall head tube. Sure I could have bought some "trekking bike" that fits, but youre really missing the point that less flexible riders still want a high performance, lightweight package even if they arent as fast as the pros or even you for that matter. I dont want a bike that looks like a tour bike, in fact every time I look at my Cervelo I wish it had stickers I could peel off.
I dont think amateur riders should be forced upon a heavy outdated trekking bike with eyelets and rack mounts they will never use just to appease some pretentious dickhead like yourself. Apologies in advance to other users of this forum for my uncouth choice of works but Im sick of riding amongst people like you.
