    If you're gonna act like a total asshat on an e-bike, maybe you shouldn't strava it. Or, put "turbo" in your profile name.

    To the dude in front of me this morning going too fast to pass, too slow to pull away: please, for the love of All That is Good and Decent, invest in some bib shorts, or at least move up a size.

    Following up on this, I'm starting to seriously consider carrying a sturdy stick to jam into the spokes of TdF wannabes who don't call their passes. Grr! Grump! Hrumph!

    My strategy that I employed today was to exchange a pulling Komorebi to work in exchange for her calling "bike back" when people didn't call passes.
