Bikes like pic related are for dumb fuck try hards.
Let me explain.
You're bent over in an awkward "racer" position.
You're not a tour-de-france racer, you're just some homely fuck riding a bike. Save your back from getting kinks in it, and get a bike with higher handle bars on it.
Also, look at the fucking brake handle placement, how fucking stupid is that? Pic the least accessible placement out of two options for your brake handles. Ugh.
Also, do you know how bad these stupid things fuck up your nuts and taint area?
I rode one of these stupid bikes to Home Depot and back, and I was fucking cursing like crazy at how horrible of a time I was having compared to my cheap ass shitty 200$ mountain bike.
Also, no suspension? Christ.Even on normal well kept roads, front suspension is a must now, and without it you feel every fucken bump right in your nutsack.
Fuck non-hybrid road bikes, they're garbage. Road-bike fanbois are dumb pricks for defending this uncomfortable, inefficient, piece of shit design.
this is my ideal bike, a hybrid.
it's 400$ and 4x better than your "road bikes":

Give me a valid reason why anyone, who doesn't race, should ride anything but a 28mm? And if your frame doesn't fit them - get one that does, poor fags.
I just rode on the new 4000s 28s and my god, what a world of a difference. Faster and smoother, why bother with anything else. So long faggot 23s and 25s.
