I overtook a group of guys this morning going up a hill through Pyrmont. They were kitted out in club gear on nice bikes, and going a fair clip.

They caught up with me at the next lights, and one of them said,
'Nice work. You should shave your legs!'

I wasn't sure if that was a compliment, or a pick-up line....

I was also too flummoxed to think of the appropriate witty response:
'You should lose the gears...'

Hmmm, are your legs particularly hairy? Presumably their legs were shaved?

It's a compliment. Roadies, and roadie wannabees, think they are pretty good, and ergo anyone who can ride past (faster than) them is also therefore pretty good.

Some time ago I read that shaving your legs will save you 3 seconds over 40kms. I know that is not the reason for doing it, but some people think that it is.

It's traditional. No further justification required. (Dave Moulton, I think.)

It's a compliment Dan, you're bloody quick!

Are they space pants you are wearing?

Because your ass is out of this world.

Now that's a pick-up line, Doddsy!
