I live in an area (Northern Suburbs of Chicago) with a TON of cyclists. Every evening when I go out on a ride I run into 5-20+ other cyclists often going the other direction. We make eye contact, I nod, they give me a blank stare...
This whole thing is weird to me. Whenever I'm running and I run into someone we both nod at each other. Maybe say I hi and go on our way. Same in the pool. Cyclists on the other hand look at me like WTF is he doing? I just don't get why cyclists are such D-bags overall.
Same goes for people working at LBS's sorry I'm not riding a bike that's 3G's but i wouldn't order so much off the internet if you didn't treat me like I was completely broke or just wasting your time every time. I'm all about supporting local businesses but you're not going to get my business just because you're there when I have other options.
An example is I wanted to buy a set of aero-bars and didn't want to wait for them. I was ready to buy them and I was like why should I spend an extra 20 bucks here on them instead of going online? Will you help fit me or give me some advice on how to adjust my bike to make it fit right with aero bars? The guy huffs looks at me like I'm asking him to bend over backwards and then explains to me that I should pay 75 bucks to be professionally fitted on my bike... I walked out and ordered them online.
Sorry for the rant. I LOVE MY BIKE. Love riding it for 2 hours whenever I can but I just don't get why people that are involved with cycling are such jerks.
