That is one of the funniest things I've read in ages.

Its really pleasing when someone takes the time to write well. This one is right up there with the Amazon review of the guy who used Veet on his genitals.

There is an element of truth to it, but frankly I think he's just soft. Even softer than Australians who wear thermals in 'winter'. He should give up cycling and take up something easy like cake decoration.

Indeed, its quite Hemingwayesque, or rendolent of Phillip Roth in his less self-indulgent days. :lol:

I think he teaches English for an income, hence the lovely vernacular, soliloquy and use of smart words.

Some might call it overly verbose though. :mrgreen:

In all seriousness, he is a top lad.

and then without warning the back wheel leapt out of the dropout clasps and i had to do an emergency unclip and braking manouevre ON THE GODDAMNED TURBO just to stay alive. i suddenly lurched towards the computer where Graeme Obree was riding off the front of some sort of Tour of the Scottish Prettylands in the early part of the film and very nearly ended up joining the crazed circular-breathing scotsman on the silver screen.

Seriously? How is this possible if you have proper equipment and know how to use it? Rollers, yes? Turbo?
