One of our Killer Bees (Sergio) has come out of the closet!!!
- To be absolutely honest, I kind of suspected it but.... well... I
just couldn't bet my life on it. On the surface, he appeared to be
the typical macho Strada rider, comfortable with his manly "no hair-
do", smiling behind his white goatee, always showing a determination
to grab the bull by the horse, taming a low racer or appearing to
handle his high BB demon with the skill of a dare devil. Oh yeah, he
skillfully managed to fool most of us but he did not fool me! Perhaps
it was his "I-would-rather-fight" demeanor, something that worked
quite well. After all, who would risk fighting with Sergio? Not me!!!
This guy is strong as a mule so it was easier to view Sergio just the
way he wanted us to see him.
But at our last bent event, he decided to come clean and reveal to me
his dark secret. He just couldn't live with this anymore and he
really didn't care if all of us in our group found him out. And so it
is my very difficult duty to share his secret with our bent community.
I will admit that I faked being surprised when Sergio let out the big
news. You see, I just could not bear to act otherwise in front of
Sergio. After all, he is my riding buddy and, well at the time; I
just didn't know what to say or do. I then thought that we bent
riders are supposed to be tolerant and heck... when you need to come
out of the closet, you need to come out of the closet. So I told
Sergio to go ahead and tell me what it was that was bothering him.
From the strain on Sergio's face I could tell that this was something
important and it was something that was really bothering him. So I
readied myself for his confession and almost fell off my bike when he
told me that, after all these years, he has come to the conclusion
that he is a LOW BOTTOM BRACKET kinda guy!
So.. the next time you see Sergio on the road, his feet may not be up
in the air but might just be orbiting around the low BB area of a
Tour Easy, where his heart and soul belong.
Sergio, if you're reading this, don't worry. The members of this
group will love you just the same.

Once again one of our members was seduced by the
"Dark Side of the Force"
Words like "high racer" and "dual 650's" tempt us
Although Sergio succumbed to the dark side, he has now seen
"The Light". A fellow Jedi Knight told me Sunday how Sergio
rode her sleek jet black TourEasy and he was all smiles.

- WOW! That is NEWS! For the record (As a former Contented TE, GRR
Polished Alum EZ 1 & GRR Ti rider / owner - 10,000+ miles) I
congratulate Sergio for finding his ULTIMATE TRUE enjoyable ride.
Admittedly, I TOO miss being able to just leasurly hop on and glide
around like a nice long streeeeetch limo, like I use to on my Easy
Racer Bikes. NO I'm not dis-enchanted with my Aero, BUT I do find I
have to be a little more attentive to my surroundings and specific
cycling methods, due partly to how laid back I am. On The ER bikes
you sit more upright and hince the easy going style of body
posistion just adds to the leasurly FUN ride. Being able to
IMMEDIATELY place both your feet on the ground and ease of starting
off on inclines, is another "PLUS" for low BB bikes. And make NO
Mistake, TE's and GRR's ARE FAST BIKES and with a POWER HOUSE rider
like Sergio, we all may be seeing a SCREAMING B 52 closing on the
B's including this Bench Warming one...
NOW as far as High Racers or duel 26 bikes being associated with the
DARK SIDE... Ummmmmmmm no. DF's in my mind, are STILL considered to
be the E... empire or DARK Side of cycling.
