A few things from the bike shop

So you want a bike that you can ride to work, goes really fast, is good for that triathlon you're doing this summer (snicker), is good on trails and mud, and costs less than $300. . .

"Yeah. Listen, I want a car that can go 200 miles an hour, tow a boat, has room for five adults, is easy to parallel park but can carry plywood, gets 60mpg, and only costs $3,000. I also want a unicorn to blow me. What are we even talking about here? Oh yeah. Listen, bikes can be fast, light, cheap and comfortable. Pick two, and we're all good."

This post was deleted for the following reason: Old CL post from 2009, kind of an edgy op-ed, probably make for an awful thread about bikes. -- mathowie

This Craigslist post reminds me of why I really didn't like visiting some bike shops.
