I had one of those racked next to me at last year's London Tri.

I'm happy to say I didn't do disgusting things all over it. But only because that wetsuit is ver' ver' tight...

Mine's not pink :smug: .

And it doesn't have the really expensive wheels, either :-({|= .

Yeah, but what about the bike?

I could try nicking the £800 deep section wheels off one of the bikes at work. Belongs to a fat heffalump who rides it slowly, on bike paths and with flat pedals.... :doh: ](*,)

@Andy - with all that energy gel flying around, who'd notice? =P~ :whistle:

It even dries to a salty, sinister film.

I have images of Andy doing a comparison test of various substances, and scoring them out of ten for the principal qualities... :?

The filth reminds me :evilchuffy: - there's a farmhouse being rebuilt on a back lane I use occasionally. The sign on the scaffolding reads "Selco, for a solid erection". :faint:

One of my chums followed a scaffolding van with that on. Made her miss her turn.

That's a euphemism I haven't heard before!

*sees pink bike*

WANT! Maybe this time next year the finances will allow it... [-o<

(Which I doubt, being in the bleeding heart business which is about to bleed 40% less quite soon.)

The pink is eye-watering though. And so girly.

Cat Morrison has one, mind. She's amazing. (Broke her chain in Lanzarote IronMan while in the lead. Took 45 minutes to get fixed, during which time she was passed by 5 of her rivals while she sat under a tree, had some noms and 'shot the breeze' with a few locals. She reeled them all in, passing the last one with 2km to go, and came first anyway. My gods, that woman is tough.)

If you have a look on Cycling Weakly forum there's a former racing champion called Daryl Webster who's just trying to make a middle aged comeback. For fun he's ridden LEJOG on a pink PX roadbike loaded with camping gear. Now that's even dafter than MickF's Jogleonachopper! :roll:
