    The owner of a car.
    Middle aged.
    A coffee drinker.
    Unsure of what tires I need for a given trail/weather condition.

    I think mountain biking is too easy, the bikes are ugly and the people that ride them tend to be fat, tattooed chavs that are desperate to belong to a scene.

    I only visit this forum so I can mock them. πŸ˜‰

    I have Spokey Dokeys on all my bikes, pretty sure that breaches an unwritten rule. πŸ˜€

    Sometimes I even overtake other BMWs in my BMW !

    I own one bicycle.
    With 26″ wheels.
    And gears.
    That cost less than a grand.
    Still has the original saddle.
    I never change the tyres until they’re worn out.
    I don’t know how much my bike weighs.
    I don’t know the make of my wheels. Or gears. Or brakes.

    Given the number of recent lifestylee posts on here and the alleged human desire for “fitting in” here are my personal infringments of the apparent STW Code of Practice πŸ˜‰ :

    1 – Own a BMW
    2 – Own a Puffa style body warmer
    3 – Have dogs
    4 – Take dogs with me when riding bike
    5 – Sometimes I flick dog poo into long grass instead of picking it up
    6 – Wear Salomon trainers
    7 – Overtake other cars, in a BMW
    8 – Own a road bike
    9 – Own roadie gear and sometimes wear it
    10- Wear polo shirts
    11- Sometimes wear the collar up on my polo shirt
    12- Am Scottish and may not want Independence
    13- Own a cat
    14- Have no clue as where said cat does it’s poo
    15- Dpn’t really care about spelling and grammer in posts

    It’s good to share so what stupid stuff posted on here do you not conform too?

    “double dip”?? Define please before my imagination gets carried away… 😯

    Double dip is self explanatory is it not? I suppose it’s not as bad as a random riding buddy doing it.

    I sometimes have a wild poo whilst out on the trail.

    i was with you there until the saddle. Mine got nicked, otherwise I’d probably still have it though.

    I’d say you fit in perfectly. Your post made no mention of mountain bikes.

    Well, out of that list, I only register on one; I have a NF body warmer, but I bought it back before NF got discovered by the High Street!

    Klumpy – I was with you right up to the last one. I do know what the oily bits are made of, so that when they get broken they can be replaced with better.

    OP, No 12 explains all the other deficiencies.

    Change that and all your other antisocial traits will disappear… πŸ™‚

    Fortunately my oily bits have writing on them that says what they are, so that I can replace them with the cheapest that the internet has to offer when they go. πŸ˜€
