I think number one is great, number three is honest and, as a single speed mountain biker (a.k.a. "coaster") I must categorically take offense at number five. However, I won't, 'cuz it's a great list and, as two-wheeled enthusiasts, can't we all just get along? ;o)

Peace and stay funny!

My favorite is Number 8! More bikes, more beer! One Gear, more beer!
