    Apparently I'm a hero.

    Today at the race, some guy approached me and asked to take a photo with him. He told me that I'm his hero because I was racing on a singlespeed. (I was only racing on a singlespeed because my geared bike is broken because I'm stupid.)

    So I don't know what to do now that I'm a hero. Do I wear spandex and tights every day and go around doing heroic stuff, or should I start signing autographs? I'm not really sure how to be a good example for people to follow. Most of the time, people see me and turn to their friends to say, "You see that guy? That's Bro. Whatever he does, do the exact opposite, and you'll be set for life."

    Well I believe the only correct course of action from here is to get an single speed appropriate tattoo and get a new race wardrobe

    Yep! That way I'm always reminded how far up I am from those jagged rocks down there. That's what heros do, you'll see.

    Only problem is that I ride 26ers. Any ideas on how to adapt that saying for small wheels?

    They just came out of the wash. Can I have one more ride in them before I hand them off?

    No can do, sorry. I still like that bike, and I'll like it even more when it's fixed up. Just like having 27 singlespeeds on one bike!

    ^^ +1. Get an old towel - heck you're a hero, spring for a new one - tie it around your neck, done and done. Take care to size appropriately to avoid getting it tangled up in the rear wheel.
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    I agree too.. But, I'd go with a piece of bed sheet. it will really look like you're flying in the slightest of breeze. and being you're a SS... you'll look like a ROCKET !


    oh, you need a logo too... Whos' got a Superhero photochop of Bro's Logo?

    VW, come on man. No capes. You know what happens with capes, right? Death to super heros and even regular heros like Bro. We can't have that happen. Bro, no capes man. Cool?

    This world only has room for one hero Bro. So what's it going to be, are you going to step down or do I have to force you.

    Oop's let me add this in for those unfamiliar with the O.C.

    Ooo. Maybe you're the sidekick then. Bro and his trusty pal, Frank, fight crime in their towel capes and cod pieces. This is one dynamic duo shaping up.

    Unless, of course, you are the nemesis, and you're just trying to throw everybody off your diabolical schemes.

    Anti-hero. A true hero is self-effacing and humble realizing that reasons for attention were purely serendipitous.
    Only the foolish are moved by the emotional appellations foisted by the empty souls looking for anything or anyone to make more of their meaningless existence.
    I'm afraid of heights so a 26'r fits me to a T.

    +1 on all the suggestions for a uniform/mask, and also you gotta start going around and rescuing kittens and stuff. Helping old ladies, that's good too, just watch your hands, they could file charges.

    Hey, I'm not advertising. Just wondering what I'm supposed to do now that someone else declared me a hero.

    And speaking of capes, could someone make a print of my avatar so that I can transfer it to a bedsheet? One of those iron-on logos would be fine with me, I don't really know how else I could get that photo on a sheet.
