1) Your gear don't mean shit. Ride what you like. Like what you ride. That is all. Even crappy glossy magazines are talking about it.
2) I hate it when points are made that are clearly evident, but clearly in opposition to my view of how the world should be. Pictures are nice, but I like words, words. Words.
Oh, and a bonus thing: Flikr - your new linky stuff sucks.
That is all.
