- Your cycling confessions
Why do people shave their legs? **** weird. I always thought that was a joke but people actually do it? Like with a razor. Why tf would you do that?
Coz once you’ve done it once you’ll have to keep doing it.
As above, no, idea why, but I’ve kind of always done it so it’s now just normal.Posted 2 weeks ago
Saying that, tanned and toned shaved legs do look good, irreverent if you’re male or female.
Maybe that’s the reason right there?garage-dwellerSubscriber
I have more bikes than my spare riding time can justify and really all I want or need is a moderately tough hardtail trail bike for mtb and maybe a cheap hybrid.
I could really do with ditching the entire fleet but the FS is non boost, the hardtail is 26″ and the road bike was cheap 15 years ago. Where do you sell and who buys this stuff?Posted 2 weeks agoSaxonRiderSubscriber
I also shave my legs, but I do so because I returned to road riding quite some time ago and haven’t looked back. That’s not really a confession though.
What is a confession is the fact that I was once in a criterium race in which I was getting utterly left behind and destroyed. My solution was to have a bit of a temper tantrum in which I broke of a shifter. I was able to pull out of the race due to a ‘mechanical’, and thus save face.Posted 2 weeks agomattbeeSubscriber
Having got my wife into cycling over the years we’ve been together I actually resent having my ‘me’ time invaded when she asks if she can come out with me when I wanted to ride alone. Not all of the time, but some of the time, especially off road as she’s got knackered knees so ends up being easy/short rides. Then I get “oh, I’ll make my way back home/to the car, you carry on”… in that wife type voice that clearly means “you’d better not abandon me, or I’ll sulk for days”…Posted 2 weeks agoredmexMember
I’m always clipped in even though anyone else I’m ever out with on a mountain bike are just on flat things, my xt pedals have not been serviced/oiled adjusted in 25 years and still spin like new, but I will admit I’ve twice had stitches on my left knee due to falls not so good. Never shaved my legs but is it to do with Elastoplast removal?Posted 2 weeks agophiljuniorMember
I frequently ride with:
Enduro specific baggies*.
All together off road. I have no intention of changing. On road I just take the baggies and backpack off.
*Well, Specialized Enduro ones, they say Enduro on them so as far as I’m concerned, they’re enduro specific.Posted 2 weeks ago
