    Your SO, after dating for 3 years, is completely shocked to realize that he has never introduced you to his LBS, and plans to take steps to remedy this next time you visit.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    And another one:

    You tell your SO that if he wants to get you anything made of inorganic carbon, it should have wheels and Ultegra components. They cost about the same...

    You possibly might be a cyclist if....:

    You are counting down the months until your infant is a year old and old enough to ride in a bike trailer!!!

    ...all you want for Christmas is a carbon $2000.00 road bike.

    You might be a cyclist (and also live in Colorado...) when your Optometrist and you have a big discussion about Cervelo/Specialized/Wheatridge/Boulder/Carbon Fibre/Tri bikes while she is giving you an eye exam!

    That's what happened to me today, bwahaha.

    *Raises hand* Yup. I bought 2 bikes within 3 months (my first was an aluminum, then I got a titanium one), and am now putting a down payment on a carbon one this month

    I told my (non-cyclist) friend yesterday about how much the new carbon frame bike I am planning on purchasing costs, and she screamed, "You could buy a CAR for that much!!" Ha ha

    A whole year? We finagled a way to secure the car seat inside the burly. As soon as DS was able to hold his head up on his own, we were off on our first bike ride!!!

    Yes, this went through my head on at least one occasion while I was at home.

    I missed something there ...



    I often use hand signals while running, for example, as a courtesy to let a car know that they can go ahead and do what they were planning to do, because I'm turning off and out of their path.
