    Does Crosstraining Make You Gay?

    I get a lot of flak from hipsters and rednecks for just being on a road bike. Today, some guy in a pickup gave me a limp wrist gesture when I was climbing an HC in the saddle. I guess no matter how accomplished I get in this sport, people like that will think Iím girly.

    A month ago I was riding past Donner and some hipsters on bmx and cruisers were commenting amongst themselves, and as I passed I overheard ďoh - that sorta biking is gayer than gayĒ. It was a good troll, because thatís exactly how I feel about hipsters on bikes.

    Yeah, sure I wear lycra when I ride road. Itís comfortable in the wind, and offers more muscle compression. And if I didnít, roadies would give me flak for wearing baggies, and Iíd still get flak from hipsters and rednecks anyway. I donít really see any options to make myself appear less ďgayĒ other than not crosstraining at all.

    - doesn't really give a **** about what these people think.
    - just wanted to see what other mountain bikers thought about it.

    Those guys usually are jealous of you having better look and nice cardio and just can't admit it... I know, because when I see someone like you climbing or simply on the bike path, I'm thinking : "lol, is he at the Tour de France or what ?".
    But I know I'm just saying that to myself because I will never be able to keep up with that guy and he's totally more trained and into it then I am and I find myself kinda lame to simply react this way and then try to catch him up, but 150mm of travel don't help me.

    You rock. And I admit I'm jealous.

    The guy in the pickup was making a pass at you. It's the rural version of "cruising."

    No. Sucking d!ck makes you gay. Cross training only makes you a stronger cyclist.
    A yes, in this alleged 'age of enlightenment', some of us still think being gay is wrong.

    Being gay makes you gay.

    Wearing Spandex and cross training makes you a smart and likely more fit rider.

    I think focusing on comfort and form are important in sport. I'm not quite sure why this is an issue at all. Looking at professional sports down the line, football basketball, swimming, track and field, wrestling, they all wear spandex.

    I don't understand the anti spandex thought process for a lot of mountainbikers.

    Riding a bike is crosstraining for another form of riding a bike? I thought it was all just "riding bikes" or "cycling". Whatever.

    I agree. When I read the subject, I thought this thread would be about running, swimming, weight lifting, etc.

    Spandex doesn't hang up on the saddle on steep decents like baggy shorts do.

    It's only one layer, not two - so it's cooler on hot days.

    It's less likely to bunch up and rub your chode raw.

    I'm not sure if riding a road bike is making you gay or not, that's between you and your willie.

    My bigger concern is all this time you are wasting worrying about it. Seems to me that time could be better spent uploading your power tap data, charting your next interval session, making sure your socks are the right height and perfectly alligning your spando so that your tan lines are just right on every ride. Pull it together.

    Yeah, I find it hard to justify wearing baggies on my mountain bike now after having been caught on the seat while trying to shift weight. I'm one of those lycra clad 'roadies' on a mountain bike now.

    I guess I read the title wrong. I was thinking it read does Cross dressing make you gay? That begs the question does cross training while cross dressing then cancel each other out? If so than that would make you a super straight not gay in the least bit human. I agree with Tyrone on this- just ride your bike. Just don't cross chain the thing because your bound to have homophobic slurs launched at you! After reading these posts, I find myself so confused about everything. Oh wait a tick, I don't mean confused like that Your totally getting me wrong here. This is a don't ask don't tell forum right? I gotta go!

    Cross dressing while cross training cancels itself out .

    Cross chaining, while cross dressing and cross training is still a negative and requires another negative to equal out. I'd suggest riding Cross Country - but many other options are available. Maybe try doing a cross word puzzle while cross dressing?

    Rednecks love dirt bikes. They also recognize the similarity between longer travel MTB bikes and dirt bikes. I've had quite a few ogle over my Banshee Rune. And being true rednecks, most of em don't like socialist-euro-trash, which is what you look like to them in your Tour de France getup :P

    I appreciate your input on this matter. I have gone cross eyed at this point. We have really gone cross cultural here. Whatever people say let's up hope they don't get cross with us! Good night everybody, my work is done here.

    FYI: Nothing makes a man look more like a closeted gay than being afraid of being called gay.

    I love it when the baddest of the bad MMA fighters, with cauliflower ears, show up in the ring with painted fingernails. They'll beat you bloody, but feel pretty while doing it!

    I once had a roommate that was super homophobic.

    I came home one night with a cute little blonde twink name Jarrod. I told my room mate that we were about to get naked, cover our bodies in baby oil and wrestle on a plastic shower curtain, and I asked if he wanted to join in.

    He's like, "Dude, are you gay?"

    I told him, "No..."

    And he responded, "Cool, I'll get the baby oil..."

    agreed, but also liking receiving-the-other way makes you gay. so does wearing your pants low that reveal a part of your arse.

    being gay's cool... for one thing, that leave more women for us...well, in theory.

    seriously, unless someone gets in your way, let it be, let it be
    with the words of wisdom, let it be..... from a tune from some English chaps that made millions singing pretty songs.

    road biking's cool if that leads you to enjoy the dirt cycling more.

    when I hear "cross training" I think of surfing, contact karate, or jiujitsu. I have not
    rode my Campy Italian road bike all year.

    Yeah, sure I wear lycra when I ride road. Itís comfortable in the wind, and offers more muscle compression. And if I didnít, roadies would give me flak for wearing baggies, and Iíd still get flak from hipsters and rednecks anyway. I donít really see any options to make myself appear less ďgayĒ other than not crosstraining at all.

    - doesn't really give a **** about what these people think.
    - just wanted to see what other mountain bikers thought about it.

    Its not gay at all....unless your jersey has this on it.

    lol - some great responses here.

    I guess the other problem is whatís perceived as sporty and "manly" in American iconography. Itís not guys that are built like Andy Schleck (aka me), but rather those with 15-20% body fat and a lot of lean, upper body mass that would just slow slow me down. A lot of people probably see competitive cyclists on 6k rigs and think *oh there goes another kid on a bike*. Then again, even if I was a bodybuilder I suspect all I'd have to do to get the same response is wear lycra and ride road.

    So really itís been a discovery of cultural isolation at the same time as being more proud of myself than Iíve ever been. Itís a strange mix for sure, but personally I love my Italian bike and eurokit. I feel sexy when I ride road and just plain happy as **** when I ride dirt. I havenít been doing it as long as some people here, so forgive me if Iím not used to people reacting to cyclists with derision. It just seems strange to me when find it so intoxicatingly cool and enjoyable.

    Oh, and crosstraining is what my coach calls it. Iím just parroting, but I'd agree itís probably more literal to say running, jogging, etc.

    Only if you eat it.

    That's a disturbing video. WTF are these guys tripping on??? Great swords and meat bikes with a blonde thrown in. It's almost got everything in it.

    If you want to start a thread that gets a lot of posts, just put 'gay' in the title.

    It will get so much more attention than threads like;

    "What kind of lube would work best on my bottom bracket shaft?"

    In my mid-20's I was a competitive bodybuilder and I have to say, competing in the middle-weight class were the gayest times in my life. Shorty after placing top five in the Cal-State, I went on to win "best poser" award in Mr. Santa Cruz. I know I joke around a lot, but I was hit on by gay dudes constantly when I was bodybuilding. Now, I couldn't get hit on by a 3rd world transvestite prostitute.

    Nothing like getting ready in the "pump up room" in posing trunks, oil, and fake tan with 30 other guys with 3% body fat. And yes, to protect the floor from fake tan and oil, they lined it with plastic sheeting, where we proceeded to lift weights with each other before the show, in bikini trunks.

    That's about as gay as it gets. So I don't want to hear it when it comes to wearing lycra!

    Back in my bodybuilding prime @ 185, baby.

    It still doesn't make any sense. You can only give rep (negative or positive) to members.

    It's called logic.

    Positive rep, positive rep. Dion is saying that no matter how bad you talk ***** about him, he will not give you negative rep (basically).

    That's right! Too much haterade on this forum (not Nor-Cal as much). MTB's are supposed to be fun, and threads like this should be taken lightly. As with political threads, cheap bikes threads, etc. I think there is already enough bullish*t in this world to anonymously talk smack to somebody through a computer. In other words - I'm pretty sure some starving mother with AIDS holding a skeleton baby in Somalia doesn't care about rep points - neither should we - BUT! Since the system is there, might as well spread positivity through it. It's like sending little heart shaped bubbles to each other through the internet while tuxedo wearing penguins dance side-by-side telling jokes from the 1940's.

    Make (gay) love - not (straight) hate. Or as I call it: "Str-hate"

    Dang man! You were ripped. Cool pic and neat story no matter what your sexual orientation. When I think of baby oil I think of this question. If peanut oil comes from peanuts, corn oil comes form corn, where does baby oil come from? I would totally oil you up in the most straight way possible and I would feel really good about it.

    The ironic thing is, when a hipster calls you gay, he's actually calling you straight. When a roadie gives you a bad time about wearing baggies, it's because he actually wants to view your package and the baggies are in the way. When a mountain biker gives you a bad time about wearing spandex, it's because he wanted to show you his package first but wore his baggies because all his spandex shorts were stolen from the laundry and are being sniffed by the hipsters. The fact is only about 10% of all cyclists are straight. I base this on the fact that 90% of California cyclists will accept a ticket for something they did on their mountain bike.
    Consciousness, that annoying time between bike rides.

    I'm straight as a board... but c'mon - the gays DO have more fun.

    I'd probably get smoked on the road climbs by many of those in-shape fellas.

    What's the point of the recycle bin anyway? In another forum I used, the recycle bin meant the thread was trashed and not viewable (except by mods). Here, you still can see it, post in it, and even get notified when there are new posts. It's like nothing changes, so what's the point?

    this is where completely off-topic non MTB threads, or derailed threads that have lost control go to die.

    if it does not die on it's own i will put it out of it's misery.
