    Couldn’t agree more.

    I bought a turbo and despised the bloody thing.

    Putting a turbo trainer in your garage and then calling it a “pain cave”.

    Oh this please, “Oh look at me, all tough and that in my ‘Pain Cave’ because I don’t like being cold and wet”

    it’s more like Wimps Corner

    You hate turbos, or you hate the use of “pain cave”?

    I’d argue that turbos have a place, both for specific training and if you’re short on time, but “pain cave” does grate rather.

    Calling your bike a “rig”.

    Or a steed, whip, weapon, etc.

    The word bike does the job fine!

    Edit. Agree turbos good, “pain cave” bad.

    What if I, wait, no a mate already have a pain cave (in the traditional, special interest, sense) and set up a turbo in there?

    Calling your bike a “rig”.

    One of my Mates gets all snippy about that, his Dad used to drive Lorries and he’d be say “er, it’s a bike, not a HGV”.

    He looked a bit deflated when I mentioned it was more Nautical than that.

    I have an entire warehouse for my turbo trainer, a cavern rather than a mere cave.

    hahahahah, I actually thought twice about calling it that on the other thread as I don’t like it either, but in the end decided to use it as everyone would know instantly what the thread was about.

    Bloody good idea. Can I count on you to babysit until the other half comes home from work?

    I hear your ‘pain cave’ and I raise you a ‘cottage of wattage’.

    gears !

    “Variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn’t it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles rather than by the artifice of a derailleur? We are getting soft. Give me a fixed gear.”
    –Henri Desgrange, 1903. Cyclist, first organizer of Tour de France.

    bloody cyclists of today and weak little spinny hamster legs 😀

    I really dont think the mad old Highlands dwelling beardie gives two hoots, what others think or do. He’ll be off pottering about on some 1930’s three speed thing with funny bars up a mountain looking like a deranged Santa Clause.

    If it’s pretty, groomed and you have slicked hear with shaven sides…. it’s Hipster.

    What you just park your bike in one spot and drill for oil/gas?

    I object to the following:

    -Use of the term “Swap out”

    -People refering to their bike as “Custom” when all they’ve really done is change the wheels and rear mech on an otherwise stock bicycle.

    -Front Mech Remoaners (more an interweb thing).

    -CX bikes fitted with slicks and panniers, that never get taken off road…

    -Baggies on road bikes…

    -Taking Gels/energy bars and forcing the group to stop for a munch on a sub 3 hour ride…

    -Geometry experts…

    saying things are off Piste.
