Why would i have nice bikes if i can't use them? Im way to old and tired to come home from riding my bike all day to be excited about going out on a bike-ride on my "fancy" bikes.

It was many years ago i decided i should ride my babies at work. I just take really good care of them. Ok so if the weather is poor i will use something more appropriate but otherwise i enjoy riding what i loved putting together. Perhaps i dont always use lightweights tho .)

As for theft, when i had cannondales (a long time ago tho i have one now too) they got stolen all the time. Seems none care about parlee moots merlin serottas and IFs over here

Haha thanks i think. If you only knew how much i spend on making that saddle less ugly

Its def an acquired taste. When i first got one i was like ok so i will take a mental snap shot of my bikes with another saddle and remember them like that cause its ruining the whole damn bike!! Now i actually think they look pretty good. Okay sending them to busyman does help to.

haha, its just the overall shape that sort of make one cringe a touch, but it does not detract from the bike IMO. Im serious though, i do want to try one out and see how they feel, its certainly a shapely saddle.

Not enough i can tell you that much!
Well no not all of us are riding in style, yet.. Im working on converting everyone little by little. But most seem reluctant to prioritize like me.. And all seem reluctant to take the time to search for parts like me.. someday i will have them all on Mootses!!

Bikes mostly bought used is not really a lot of money if you buy the right ones at the right time tho as most here allrdy know.
