Do you like the rough stuff or nice smooth roads? Or r u bi?

Some interesting debates on cycling on this site, just interested in preferences,

Lycra clad roadie I'm afraid, though MTBers are sexier I'm just too scared of falling off and can't be bothered with the cleaning involved.

Sexier bikes, sexier clothes, sexier men*.

I rest my case

*I can get away with this cos hubby is a road bike person

Should add that road bikes are infinitely more fun to ride, go faster and are a lot easier to carry up and down steps when you live in a second floor apartment.

I'm with LizzyB! Not in the biblical sense of course, though I could be persuaded!

Multi - I've seen your bike. Phwoar!

[takes a swig from Jj's Diet coke and prepares to heckle]

Men in colourful lycra on those tight muscular bodies, [shudder]is just so sexy!

Roadster too.

Lizzy B I have a question. We're about to buy our first home and won't be able to afford somewhere with a garage. Do you store your bike in your 2nd floor flat? Is it convenient (apart from carrying it up three flights of stairs?

Road and lycra.

I've got a mountain bike but the back wheel was nicked while I was swimming.

So no bi's at the moment?

Some good points, but "road bikes are infinitely more fun to ride" .....only on the road though, and there's no dirt, jumps, trees on the road.

Keep them coming.

Banana Boy - we have three road bikes in the dining room, not really a problem, carrying them downstairs is fine as well, but the final flight of steps is stone, a bit of a 'mare in cleats, I sometimes wait until I'm outside before putting my shoes on.

[thoughtlessly stuffing SMarties into mouth, thinking about the Rhino in lycra]

Have to agree with you Jj I think WW swings both ways.

[glugs Coke and burps delicately behind paw] but...[crunch] ... the lycra didn't lay well over the armour plating, I thought...
28/04/2004 at 18:20
but Jj, Lycra with armour plating peeping out, I find titilating.
[Stands up suddenly and shouts]

Bring it on Rhino!

have a MTB but wear lycra for cycling (even in the gym)
28/04/2004 at 18:25
OK, ta for the views so, and take it I'm outnumbered here.

Is it really that much more fun to be riding on roads with CARS/LORRIES/COACHES or through beautiful wooded trails with jumps and trees and the only traffic be horses, dogs, and cows (and RAMBLERS, grrr)?

Sadly, the only advantage I see with roadie's at the mo is the girls having a pref for lycra. Lizzy, your view about sexier bikes is taken on board but I think the new Spesh full-susser's are drop down gorgeous (no competition there).
