Fixed Gear Cyclists are Jerks?

Over on Fixed Gear Gallery, there's a little discussion about the MPLS Fixed site and forum. Now, I've been accused of being pretentious and snotty (it's lonely at the top, but it's comforting to look down upon everyone on the bottom), and then there's the tri-geek who beat up the cyclist who recommended that he get a light, but I think that the MPLSF guys take the cake.

"Please explain, in a paragraph or more, why you would like to join MPLSFixed and what you hope to gain from - and contribute to - this forum, Single sentence applications like "I like bikes" will not be approved."

To which I propmtly tried to join in, because one of the only thing better than snorting in derision towards the lowly geared riders is hanging out with people who are almost as good as me.



Think I'll get in?

I look down on people almost 100% of the time.

Steveo, you're eight feet tall, of course you look down on everyone else, it's just simple physics.

if you really want to strengthen your application to the evil league of mpls, you should include a letter of condemnation from the Lion's club, or the Shriners, or any other band of egalitarian do-gooders - maybe the Chord Rustlers

^^^^^Yeah, get the Bozeman P.D. to confirm your badness by vouchsafing a notarized note swearing you are indeed the P.O.C. in case of further illegal underground parking garage bike polo (ha that said polka for a second)

@Singletrack Mind, I just can't help it - If I started smoking as a teen or my mom had let me have soda as a kid, I might just see eye-to-eye with people. But I can't change, so unless your standing on a chair, I will continue to look down on you as well.

:D I'll keep a foot stool handy from now on.

Try getting into the Bozeman Bike Polo forum. I couldn't get into that one and I didn't even get the chance to submit an essay...
