I saw this thread yesterday and thought "what the hell? that sounds really stupid."
This morning I rode my new used single speed commuter bike (last one was stolen). The idiot had a ridiculous gear ratio setup on it. So you basically had to have quads of steel to go anywhere.
It was about 85-90°F outside and when I'm about 100 yards or so away from work I start dry heaving. Sure as shit I threw up the second I got to the dumpster.
Thanks for jinxing me OP.
