When you use"musette" in a sentence, and you're not from the continent
You say "kit", and you're not from the continent


Hold on, what are people who are 1) not from the continent and 2) not posers supposed to call these things, grocery bags and uniforms?

You bought a fixie so you can fit in at the coffee shop.

Whoa mate, you just veered off into another classification of poser. This thread is about roadie posers. The fixie's of which you speak relate to the "urban chic" or "alternative lifestyle (which is alternative to nothing in particular )" poser classification.

Hipsters

Can we get a thread on you know you're a hipster doofus when....?

I don't think I have any hipster doofus tendencies ( But I DO have doofus tendencies)

Seinfeld handiap wheelchair episode and also Elaine calls Kramer a hipster doofus in the episode where she thinks she has rabies.

This from the Handicap wheelchair:

(Kramer enters)

Jerry: What's the matter?

Kramer: It's over!

Jerry: What's over?

Kramer: Me and Lola....

George: The woman we bought the wheelchair for?

Kramer: Yeah, she dumped me!

Jerry: She dumped you?

Kramer: She dumped me! She rolled right over me! Said I was a hipster dufus. Am I a hipster dufus?

Jerry & George (hesitatingly): ... no...

Kramer: Said I'm not good looking enough for her. Not good looking! Jerry, look at me, look at my
face, huh, am I beautiful? George, am I beautiful?

George: ...you're very attractive...

Kramer: yeah... she says she doesn't wanna see me again. Told me to drop dead!

Jerry: Drop dead?

George: Boy, even I never heard that one...

Jerry: She's pretty rough!

Kramer: Yeesh-jip!

George: Well, we just blew 240 bucks on a wheelchair.

Jerry: 240 bucks?

George: Well, it was slightly used...

Jerry: Used?

I qualify for about half of these. :eek:

Me too. And as a "pack a day" 62yr old my big ring definitely will not wear out before my center ring. However, still remember my Mom picking gravel out off my backside with a pair of tweezers and then dumping real iodine on it and I did my share of KMs on the cobbles. I don't feel like I need to prove myself and if I get passed by a kid on a mountain bike.... good for him. Just the same, when I get smacked on my behind by a female teacher half my age while walking my bike down the hall........... :)

How about the basic you still can't change a flat.
You buy Velonews Bicycling and Road every month.
Um you don't use bibs yet because your worried about how you look in them.

You just bought a brand new trek and a full radioshack team "kit"and tried to find nike shoes because lance has it.

Whoa, whoa, whoa... A poser would never be seen dead in "shorts" - only bibs are acceptable
(Even if you look crap, there is no excuse for anything other than bibs)

A Poser may have to get a taxi home after a flat because he doesn't carry a spare, after all saddle bags ruin the look of your bike and besides they weigh too much, a latex tube (poser already), CO2 and some leavers would have to be 100grams!

If you use clear bottles and color match your energy drink with your clothing then you might be a poser.

I go the opposite, I have an energy drink in a clear bottle that looks clear... because as a poser, I don't need the science to help me ;)
 
If you use light weight racing tires for training and complain about the number of flats you get then you might be a poser.

If you shave your legs while listening to Italian opera then you might be a poser.

If you chase someone down while training and pat yourself on the back when you notice that he has a more expensive bike than you then you might be a poser.

you might be a poser when you try to chase someone down and they accelerate and leave you behind.

You constantly tell stories about your Epic ride...... around the block.

You get laughed at when you walk into your lbs.
