"While Cannondale claims that their design is 'bullet proof' our evaluation of the Headshok [front fork] after 72 direct hits showed that it is merely 'bullet resistant'."
You, too, can survive the coming apocalypse with the advice of the Mountainbike Militiamen Movement.

Remember, keep your chains lubed and your guns loaded, we're all in this together even if we're alone.

One thing is for sure, if you'r a real "X-treme" athelete you will "X-perience" really "X-treme" pain on a regular basis.

I don't think that's entirely what it's about, stalbach...

There's definitely an 'alternative' bike culture out there, in stark opposition to the weekend-warriors in $50 spandex jerseys. Among them are bike messengers, critical massers, bikes-not-bombs... It's the gutter-punk approach to bicycling, and I think it's a damned goo thing it exists. The other guys are waaaaay too into toys and money form my liking. Gimme the kids who like wrapping their bikes around trees and then fixing them with twigs and vines any day.

I took this as very tongue in cheek, stbalbach. If you click around enough, you'll find some pretty funny stuff that I took as being from some bike enthusiasts who had some time to kill.

That's usually how it is, tounge in cheek.

Hummer mens fragrance:

"..the maker of supersized combat-cum-luxury vehicles is licensing the Hummer name to a line of mens' fragrances. Body wash, aftershave, and deodorant."

.22 hollow points? Give me a break, those are puny little excuses for bullets. Get out yer .50 cal sniper rifle and feed that puppy a full 671 grains of diplomacy and I'll show you a HeadShok you'll never forget.
