    .. 3/4 bib tights. I think I’m 15% quicker and 175% more stony faced and miserable looking. Brilliant.

    As I ride along I grab bottles out of the hands of pedestrians, then obviously throw them away due to health risks.

    Peeing at the side of the road.
    Best to choose a quiet spot though.

    Soft compound tyre on the rear. Screw longevity and cost saving, I want a minuscule handling improvement.

    Also having my two bikes having:
    same suspension manufacturer
    same brake manufacturer
    same drivetrain manufacturer
    same tyre manufacturer

    same tyre manufacturer

    Not really, pro would be a black marker to hide what you’re actually riding….

    Flipping a +35 degree stem and putting all spacers above it. 😮 😆

    A flick of the elbow and dropping back down the line after brining the pain at the front of a group.

    The general chatter and noise in a fast road bunch. Where everyone is in sync, everyone is working hard but it still seems effortless and the group acts as 1 body. It doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s magnificent.

    Social media posts of yourself where you’ve tagged manufacturers of products you use yet have paid for out of your own money.

    My domesiques refuse to push me.

    Having your dad on the finish line looking at a stop watch and shaking his head.

    My personal pro treat is fitting a new chrome lens at the start of the summer Alps trip.

    Must remember not to look at my reflection in shop windows, as seeing the fat gut spoils the effect.

    molgrips is right. 3/4 bibs bring out my inner Greg van Avermaert. He is a lot slower than the real one.
