Sheryl's Birthday Present

Saw this pic on her website. I had read where Lance Armstrong bought her a bike for her birthday.

she's really not all that hot...and i hate it when people try to sit on the seat AND touch the ground with their feet. folks come into my shop and they're all "could you lower the seat for me? i can't touch the ground with my feet." and then i hit them over the head with the BIG wrench and explain that they should step down from the pedals and straddle the top tube when they stop.

Seriously, after the helmet show me manly, that's 100% USDA Chick. Legs and arse like that are few and far between.

I'm sure Lance can find someone to properly fit it for her. And I seriously doubt if he "bought" the bike for her any more than he bought any of his own bikes.

Thats a little harsh man, really who puts on makeup to go out on a ride anyway? I am sure most of the time she is properly made up, her PR people probably see to that...

You don't really mean that do you Ron? She looks pretty good but I still think Kristen looks better.

The ones in RonH's head, you mean?

Seriously, Sheryl's site says that's the bottom of Alpe d'Huez. So, I'm guessing France!

You playing travel bingo?

please. she's hot. and talented. lance just told one of the team guys to find a trek from the stable that looks like it would fit her and put a call in to nike for the shoes and socks, etc.

i'd only be disappointed if she got on it for the publicity then didn't ride and got off to give it back. maybe they adjusted the fit after the photo

i love the way her legs go up and make an @ss of themselves.

No wonder they're attracted to each other - they're twins separated at birth.

I'd be pretty happy to date Sheryl Crow.

And she looks good in that picture.

i'm not saying there's anything wrong with the fit of the bike...just that, you're not supposed to be able to touch the ground from the saddle. STRADDLE THE TOP TUBE FOR F%($ SAKE!!!
