    Not me after that comment I made about flipping bikes.

  2. Pamela October 23, 2008 8:31 am 

    You need one for girls. :(

  3. Ghost Rider October 23, 2008 8:43 am 

    I’m sure curious to hear the answer (as I’m not sure of it myself) — and I think I get to decide who is right or not!

  4. RL October 23, 2008 8:48 am 

    Tony, Feel free to enter. We don’t discriminate.

    Pamela, just to let you know, WE ARE working on a women’s design. It’s going to look super cool!

    We’re also planning for our 2009 BikeCommuters Jersey and that’s going to be pretty schnazzy if you ask me.

    Well, so far, color me “underimpressed” with the quality of the guesses.

  6. Jesus Christ October 23, 2008 9:21 am 

    RL that was a great link lmao, his hair cut scares me but at the same time makes me happy?! He is my new hero, GR the lord wears a small so I’m out.

  7. awgie October 23, 2008 9:40 am 

    Can you hold off on my entry until I get my response from the “ask Jack” feature??

  8. Ghost Rider October 23, 2008 9:44 am 

    Why, Awgie, that would be CHEATING! Besides, I don’t know how useful my answer would be…my bike idol varies depending on my mood (although there is my “go to” idol in times of need).

  9. Priscilla October 23, 2008 11:25 am 

    lol. I didn’t know Jesus was so funny!

    GR – Ur lookin FIERCE in that jersey! πŸ˜‰

    Ghost you did once refer to someone as your childhood hero in a past article. That’s what I went with on my guess…if you’re reading guesses.

  11. Ghost Rider October 23, 2008 1:42 pm 

    Hmmm…very intriguing. I’ll have to ask RL for your answer, since I don’t have access to those emails. If you guessed what I’m guessing you guessed ;), you might just be “on the money”.

  12. jt October 23, 2008 6:42 pm 

    Guys. Your “Ask Jack” link is broken/hosed. It spawned 40 “page not available” windows when I clicked it. Twice.

    I have a question for Jack, and it’s not “who is your hero”.

  13. RL October 23, 2008 6:49 pm 

    I think Moe fixed it. But its supposed to launch your email software to send Jack your question.

    If that doesn’t work, send your email to:

  14. Ghost Rider October 23, 2008 7:05 pm 

    Send away…it looks like the link is working (I just checked at 10:05P Eastern Standard).

  15. Rapps October 23, 2008 8:03 pm 

    Jack…silly boy………….it’s ME!
    Send my shirt in Med.
    OK 2 comments just to mess with ya :)

  16. MattG October 24, 2008 2:08 am 

    Just a large jersey? I’m out. And while I’m thinking about it, are all bike commuters, anorexic looking folks about 5’5″? What’s the deal with that? Didn’t any of you play high school ball? Please eat something, guys. That can’t be healthy! :)

    I was reading forums the other day and fell over when I read that burly men like myself are referred to as “clydesdales” in the cycling world! I thought I was average height!

    Do the local bike shops have shrink rays hidden in the back or something?! :)
    (of course I’m just playing around… don’t get all riled up!)

  17. RL October 24, 2008 6:17 am 

    Hey MattG,

    Yup Clydes do exist! One of the Racers is in that category and I have to tell ya, Clydes are FAST! Just because they’re big doesn’t mean they’re slow.

  18. Ghost Rider October 24, 2008 7:01 am 

    Here’s why clydesdales are fast: gravity. Or something.

    One thing clydesdales will never be are great climbers (like my bicycle idol).

  19. RL October 24, 2008 7:17 am 

    Not all Clydes are chubby…there are some that are solid and can do some damage to their competition.

  20. Jesus Christ October 24, 2008 7:34 am 

    When I race the big guys I just tell the wind, listen up bitch! And it will start to gust to 19mph then I get areo, and drop those big fools. Yeah that’s right the lord is 5’5″ 135 lbs.

  21. Ghost Rider October 24, 2008 7:36 am 

    But they’ll still never be great climbers…look at all those wispy shrimps like Kubler, Gimondi, Bartali, etc. A strong wind might knock us over, but we’ll be able to dust the “big boys” on the hillclimbs.

    I got you beat, J.C. — 5’9″, 128 lb.

  22. MattG October 24, 2008 8:43 am 

    135? 128? I think I weighed that back in middle school! That’s it, I’m buying all you guys hoagies and beers; you need to bulk up!

    And none of this “light” beer nonsense! If they don’t have IC down there, I’ll spring for the Guiness. :)

  23. Ghost Rider October 24, 2008 8:47 am 

    Here’s a secret for you — I eat about 5000-6000 calories a day, far in excess of USDA guidelines. No bulking up “cure” works — although when I was a beer drinker, I shot up to a whopping 137 (after drinking 12+ fullstrength German beers a day for 2 years). I don’t even ride all that much — approx. 2000 miles a year. Guess it’s just my metabolism…

  24. RL October 24, 2008 8:49 am 

    You suck Jack….haha

  25. MattG October 24, 2008 9:13 am 

    I figured that you all weren’t dieting… I’ve seen the bike reviews where “beer capacity” is a valued feature. I was just messing around.
