All the ways bikes are better than women. Maybe.

Are bikes better than women? Don't think so.

We stumbled across this mildy amusing bit of cycling related nonsense. Worth a chuckle, maybe two or three.
You'll find the last nine here.
1. Bicycles don't pregnant.
2. You can ride your bicycle any time of the month.
3. Bicycles don't have parents.
4. Bicycles don't whine unless something is really wrong.
5. You can share your bicycles with your friends.
6. Bicycles don't care how many other bicycles you've ridden.
7. When riding, you and your bicycle can arrive at the same time.
8. Bicycles don't care how many other bicycles you have now.
9. Bicycles don't care if you look at other bicycles.
10. Bicycles don't care if you buy bicycle magazines.
11. You'll never hear, "Suprise, you're never going to own a new bicycle" unless you go out and buy one yourself.

12. If your bicycle goes flat, you can fix it.
13. If your bicycle is too loose, you can tighten it.
14. If your bicycle gets misaligned, you don't have to discuss politics with it.
15. You can have a black bicycle and bring it home to your parents.
16. You don't have to be jealous of the guy who works on your bicycle.
17. If you say bad things to your bicycle, you don't have to apologize before you ride it again.
18. You can ride your bicycle as long as you want and it wont get sore.
19. You can stop riding your bicycle as soon as you want and it wont get frustrated.
20. Your parents wont remain in touch with your old bicycle after you dump it.

    Its lucky you put the word "maybe" in there, or you'd be riding nothing but Santa's sleigh — out of town — for the holidays!

      Thank God you're still reading. Those business trips are good for you. Only time you get a chance to catch up on the best cycling blog in the world. The one your damn husband writes when he's not taking care of the kids! Hooray for us.

    I'm going to save this list for later. Thanks for this one! 😉

    Although, this "maybe" in the title should be removed again, because this list is generally true. However, always remember: "Your woman is a lot more warm and soft to feel and than your bicycle!" .. so if you're looking for a soft comfy and warm spooning partner, don't prefer your bike over your woman!

    Hahah, love the comments guys! Hooray for you!

      Always good to have the list in your back pocket for special occasions like the holidays. Matt

    This is a variation on a tired old email – except this time with slight doses of sexism and racism. Your original material is so so much better than this – witty, well crafted perspectives that seem to come from an endless reservoir – and we all enjoy them immensely! I know you've been cranking out a lot of postings this year, so I totally understand taking a day off, so to speak. But please, can't Twisted Spoke still be a respite from the (admittedly more overt) sexist and racist ranting that we hear/read/see in the rest of our worlds? C'mon, Matt!

      Randy, thanks for the criticism. That post may have slipped thru my editorial filter. I got a laugh or two out of it but yeah, it was generally kind of dated. You sawy what my wife commented. Matt

    Fair enough. Gotta respect a guy who's willing to take a critical comment constructively, rather than personally…

    You probably can’t understand why number 15 isn’t cool.
