i'm just imagining a pulp fiction style conversation between them as they cycle now.
'you know what they call a quarter pounder with cheese in roubaix?'

Pink Boards jersey spotted around 10.50am this morning close to Blakes Cross. I was in a car and the mrs was driving so couldn't beep.

Not a Jersey sighting, but I did bump into (not literally) Mercian pro on the commute this morning. Lovely chap.

Good talking to you too droidus. Your cool bike really caught my eye. The combination of the Alfine hub, belt drive and disk brakes looks quite minimalist without going to the extreme of a fixie. Seems like a great combination for a commuter bike.

Couldn't wear cycling gear as I was on an exam board in UCD. Not sure if all the candidates would agree with your last comment 😊

Yeah, it is (IMO) the perfect commuter bike, and yet there you are on a beat up cannondale and 140km in your legs leaving me in the dust after every light!

Seen a pink/black jersey crossing the N11 near Stillorgan yesterday evening, on what looked like the most comfy commuter bike in history

Both could have been me. MTB shorts & single pannier?

And it's a pretty comfy commuter alright, that's my tank.

Yep, silver mudguards and MTB shorts. I waved and then thought, that person doesn't know me, better stop. I also look creepy when I wave as its done with too much enthusiasm.

At about 11.30am this morning, I gave a shout out to a Boardsie on the Garristown- Naul road. I was heading towards Naul.

That was some shout - I'd say the loudest I've ever had!
