    Wink True words spoken in jest

    This might be appreciated here.

    The Onion's sister site sums up a fundamental belief of the cycling industry (and clothing industry, travel industry, furniture industry...):

    We all know how tall people can get, but at the end of the day, no one, not even the tallest person you know, is really that tall. It doesn’t matter how many people are shorter than you. The fact remains that zero people in the world are actually that tall.

    As a cyclist, you've never noticed that many bike companies think one bike can fit people "5'10" and up"?
