Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This thread is totally cracking me up. I can't stop laughing.


I think this really means that the threads on the open floodgate are broken.

This is too funny. I can't stop laughing - my "office space" coworkers know I'm slacking off now.
Check out this 'bike' from the seller's Other Listings - note the SHIMANO 'drivetrain' description:

My brother travels the orient often. He knows he is obligated to purchase anything and everything that uses Engrish for me. He must return with some item big or small that mangles the English language.

Needless to say, it does not take much effort for him to find it.

I love the title of this one:

For added comedy, "the saddle is in charge of the light."

I come to you seeking "the single ladder of lock". Can you show me the way?


Thanks for the laugh!
