    Is my avatar offensive?

    Simply put is it offensive to you ladies? I have had a few guys tell me to change it but that doesn't bother me unless it is the great Ultra Lord Francios himself...

    So I thought I would take it to the board of directors and see what you had to say.


    I asked the wife about it and she said she was ok with me dreaming...

    uhh......sorry............what? Did somebody say something?

    I was staring at Dude's avatar. They should all be so hunky.

    Now. What was the question again?

    I find the pink man panties very offensive. You should remove them.


    (Actually, your avatar entered my thoughts the other day. I was all, "Hey, I might be offended" by an avatar with a chick being all hot in it. Then I realized that I've never given your avatar a second thought and dehypocrited my thought process.)

    Nope. But neither do I find that image particularly attractive. Call me weird, but he's too "perfect" and I think thongs are ridiculous on men. If he was wearing jeans, now that would be nice.

    Call me even weirder but I dont think he's perfect. I don't like such a cut figure... firm and sculpted is good but I'm not a body builder type...
    BUT I think such a picture can be inspiring - making a person want to work out and be healthier. And I'm not offended!

    That's why I used "perfect" in quotes. I don't like fake-tanned, oiled, body-builder types much either and the thong just sends it over the edge to cheesy.

    But again, I'm not offended.

    What's hypocritical is the fact that a bunch of guys- who probably check out the "Interbike Hottie" forum daily- claim to find it offensive.

    I do agree with Catzilla that the pink speedo is offensive and should be removed ASAP

    I also agree that he's not exactly most women's type of dream hunk- all California-blonde and perfect- but I'm just happy to see a hunky avatar for a change, as opposed to all the cleavage.

    So if you want to consider a Hunk Of The Week in that spot, why that would be like an all-access pass to the WL.

    Hey Dude why on earth would such a simple avitar be offensive.

    Last time I checked, Women weren't and indeed are not hypersensitive to stuff like that.

    If anything I suspect most women find him far from attractive and a little too 'perfect' to use the term loosely
    Trev!

    oh my

    That so totally works for me, yum! Thanks for the lovely beefcake, formica.

    And no Dude, your avatar is not even vaguely offensive, unless perhaps one is a hyper-sensitive hetero male who found himself looking admiringly at it and then felt all icky and stuff.

    Wow! I've never been interested in fishing, but (butt)....

    PS. No not offensive, my opinion is that you should make the fisherman your avatar.

    Dammit, 'pint, I was about to call dibs on the first one on the left

    How did that guy with the soap on him get in there? I don't see any muscles. Party crasher.

    Anyway, that fly fisherman comes wandering into the WL now and then. He always forgets to bring his clothes, tsk tsk. We should spank him. Naughty fly fisherman, naughty!

    The board has spoken

    Thank you ladies....

    To keep somewhat of an upperhand here I will try to convey the same type of behavior I ask my kids to and that would be not to relish in the mistakes of others. " Hence it would be wrong of me to point out what they actually said ". I will have to say, if fly fishing is that good for the body I am going to start doing more of it... Hmmm it's been about nine years since the last time I went.....

    Oh and CycleMainiac; I asked and she said sure.....

    last year while out riding I stumbled upon this photo shoot and hugn aruond droolin. unfortunately not all the photos are available online anymore, but not to worry, I bought at least three of the calanders

    Here's the link , After this shot some removed the black shirts for close ups.

    How come none of those firemen has any chest hair? What's up with that? I think a couple of them even have boob jobs. Hard to believe all you lovely ladies are so superficial.

    They are metrosexual firemen.
    If you need a chest like that, it's nothing a few thousand pushups wouldn't fix.

    mmmmm cowboys. Me like. Cowboys good.

    A person could write a romance novel around that first picture.

    Betty (slowing down on her bike): Why, cowboy, you look so lonesome, with your head down and your hat pulled over your eyes.
    Cowboy: As a matter of fact, I am. {{{sniiifff}}}
    Betty (lifts hat and dabs tears from his eyes): How could such a handsome, swarthy, shirtless hunk like yourself possibly be lonesome?
    Cowboy: My horse died 'cause I was ridin' it so much.
    Betty: Well, you know what they say- save a horse, ride a cowboy
    Cowboy: Huh?
    Betty: That is, save a horse, ride a bike.
    Cowboy: But it's so hard to find women to ride with.
    Betty: Well, silly, I'm the answer to your prayers, obviously! Now, let's go to my place and get you out of those cotton duds and into some biking stuff.......

    1st guy looks like a cowboy....

    creased hat, snuff can in the front left pocket, boot fitting jeans with trophy belt buckle. (not a World Champions, but close enough ) Posture, way he holds his hands. Cowboys have that easy going, layed back look. By the way the hat is worn and the posture, I say he has some cowboy in him. The trophy buckle is throwing me for a loop though, cause it is too small for the usual awards buckle worn by a grown up (looks store bought). I do have a drawer full of them that size that I won as a kid. As I got older the buckles may have not got much bigger, but definitely more elaborate. So it could be real, except the guy looks too beefy for a rough stock rider. Looks like a bull on the buckle. I have seen some big rough stock riders though, they are the exception, not the rule.
    2nd dude is all dude, need I say more?

    Belt buckle? What are you talking about?

    OH, that annoying object that's keeping his pants on. Somewhere between the abs and the crotch. Somehow escaped my attention.

    Thanks a lot I truly needed that. This weeks been hell. Most of the days have been 10 - 11 hours of work and not sitting in an office type either. I started reading this thread and all that melted away just staring at all that fabulous flesh. My personal choice is the fisherman. YUMMY!! I can't stand men without chest hair, so the firemen don't get me, ...then again. And all I got I say about the cowboys is YEEHAW!!

    BTW I'm not offended either and I love the changing it weekly idea. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    re: chest hair

    I wouldn't kick a hunky cowboy out of bed for not having chest hair. Or for having it. Or a cute fireman. Mmmmmm.

    What were we talking about again? Oh yeah, chest hair. Back/neck/ear/above collarbone hair is another thing......

    I received this in my email yesterday, in keeping with the theme of really buff men. ;-)

    YOU'RE INVITED!
    EVENT : PAMPERED CHEF PARTY
    WHERE: MY HOUSE
    CAN YOU COME?


    I know how busy you all are and that you probably hate being invited to any home parties, but I assure you this is no ordinary home party. And to be honest, I haven't had a party like this in ages, and I need to update my kitchen gadgets.

    Pampered Chef has come out with new consultants and products that are fabulous.

    I have attached samples of the new home party products...

    I know how busy you all are and that you probably hate being invited to any home parties, but I assure you this is no ordinary home party. And to be honest, I haven't had a party like this in ages, and I need to update my kitchen gadgets.

    Pampered Chef has come out with new consultants and products that are fabulous.

    I have attached samples of the new home party products...

    See below

    omg, I"m going to save that, I am having a pampered chef party in Jan, LOL,

    I must be getting old because those "hunky guys" all look like jailbait to me.

    Brilliant idea, my compliments to the editor! What is that from, Vogue or Ladies' Home Journal?

    {{{{sigh}}}} how nice it would be to come home from a cold, wintry night ride and find Will getting something out of the oven. Instead of my crazy roommate

    How did I miss this post??

    The first time I went riding with one of my "riding buddies" in the cold and he was in front of me in spandex... I think I crashed 3 times just from lack of concentration on the trail. (sigh).

    Well its nice to know the women do this too.... and all this time I thought it was just the guys who suffer from the old "objects in mirror may be closer than they appear" syndrome, while following a girl in spandex on a trail.

    Of course, I already knew female mountain bikers have the lock on saying innappropriate things out loud at innappropriate moments, during a trail ride. Like the girl who was behind me and JUST as I reached a critical section that requires perfect timing and concentration (as it involved lofting the front wheel up 2 feet onto a ledge, and then half bunny hopping the back wheel up as you still move forwards) chose to say out loud.... "Oooooooo this is a c u n t friendly saddle".

    Needless to say, my brain processed that statement fast enough to totally make me forget about the lifting the front wheel business, until it was too late to clear the ledge without ramming my nuts into the stem. After I caught my breath I asked her to repeat what she said to make sure I heard it right, and then asked her to wait till a CLEAR piece of singletrack before the next time she wanted to say something like that on a ride.

    Why did she say it at all some may ask? Well she'd been having saddle-comfort issues on her new bike, so I'd been swapping different saddles I had in my bins for her to try out. The previous one had led her to complain about it rendering her bits numb for a week, so I guess she was just too happy with the fact that I'd found a saddle that actually worked for her this time.

    At least I hope that's what it was. I know another girl who constantly would remark on group rides (where she's the only female group, and a darn attractive 25 year old one at that) every time her saddle did its impersonation of a penis and penetrated her on this bump or that drop or ledge or whatever. This gets distracting to a bunch of guys, even the 50 year old married ones in the group, and the worst part is she didn't even realize what she said half the time, and was constantly making comments that are interpretable in a sexual way. But yet, if a guy make a lewd comment on a ride, she's one of the first women to complain about it.

    Are any of you women like that? Please say its not just a canadian thing...

    Hee...I do that too. There was this guy on the Idaho ride I did with Formica this summer...*v e rrrrrr y* nice legs. He must have got sick of me staring because he ended up behind me.

    We need to remember to revive this thread every week or so, so's we can check out Dude's latest avatar. (The current one is YUMMY)

    Sorry. This new avatar's a loser with me. Once I can see crack, it really doesn't matter what the rest looks like. He's no better than an exhibionist plumber... Not that I'm especially offended or scandalized, but it's just... unappealing.

    Makes me glad that I chose this one as my new avatar for MTBR then, rather than some other itteration of the image. I even removed the poor girl's belly button, in addition to the other naughty bits , before applying the effects.

    Wow, how ironic. I got back from Thanksgiving vacation and see this thread lives on while there is a severe case of "Spandex Phobia" on the General Forum
    Comfort in tights for men?

    Some guys just seem to be terrified of spandex, I think that's funny. I find confidence attractive and I don't see it in the poster who started this flame (several posts down). Guys if you are reading, don't let someone like this scare you out of using the right equipment for the job. With this sort of attitude prevelent in some men out there, I guess it might take even more confidence for those who are not ashamed of their bodies to wear what they want to wear even though they must realize there are people out there who cringe at the sight (the cringers are the ones who need to get over their own hangups). There is nothing inherently feminine about cycling clothes, they are athletic- not feminine. Well, if you are wearing PINK spandex, that may be another issue.

    Another point I wanted run by everyone is to see why body hair is associated with masculinity along with lack of body hair being associated with lack of masculinity (in the context of the post above mentioned)

    Anyone whoe's ever been to Telluride or Durango can atest that there are plenty of women with hairy underarms and hairy legs while (in Durango especialy) there are many VERY masculine men with shaved legs. I'm going to go out on a limb here in defence of our beloved spandex-wearing, leg-shaving men and say that I for one find it increadable sexy and very masculine. Hair does not make the man.

    As far as the new avatar goes, I'll give it a "thumbs up" ...

    I have to ask also...Dude, what is it your wife is referring to? What do you dream about? I am also kind of curious why a "dude" has those pictures anyway. I guess one would think a straight dude would have pictures of hot women, rather than a bunch of guys.

    It's about the temple... The body is a temple and needs to be one. Currently my body is still on the drafting table. Do I wish I had a body like some of these guys in my older age, you betcha and I am sure my wife wouldn't mind. It's all about how you view yourself and what goals you set. Do I think I have room for improvement? Well yes I do and one of my goals is to improve the way I look and feel. Life can be harsh at times and what was once may no longer be. I once was lean and very fit... You get the point.

    To answer your other question... "one would think a straight dude would have pictures of hot women, rather than a bunch of guys"...

    That would be offensive to my wife and very disrespectful as that would indicate I don't view her as my goddess. If I wanted that as my avatar I would have to post a picture of my wife and she doesn't want that....

    If most men are like me...

    They could care less what other people think about their cycling clothes or the shaved legs. For me it is only Micro Sensors shorts (Pearl Izumi's) all the time and shaved legs when I am racing.

    I see your piont about disrespecting your wife. Maybe your wife should worry though, it still seems funny that you take the time to find pictures of men. If it where a fitness thing, the guys wouldnt be half naked. To each his own. The women like it, so have fun.

    Get over it...

    So does that mean if I post a picture of a cartoon that is saying I am child like?
    What about a pet, does that state I am an animal lover of hater?
    What about a weapon is that stating I am a bad person?
    What about a bottle of beer does that make me a drunk?

    I think not but in your haste to think of something witty you will find your truth.

    Man, first of all READ MY OCCUPATION!!!! and you kids that have made the comments need to get over your own fear and stop looking to label others.

    I am not going to dignify myself with explaining my avatar anymore..... Look it's almost Thursday!

    But, now I'm stuck with "animal lover" or "animal hater." Geez, dude, why you always gotta be labeling everything?!? That's just, like, so stereotypical.

    This thread is great! As of today, wed. nov. 30, Dude's got no avatar.... can't wait for the new one - for the responses to start again. I always thought his avatar's were of HIM!

    FWIW, I stay away from the General Forum nowadays, as it can get as moronic as some of the threads in the Socio-Political Forum, sadly...

In regards to the following behind a great looking rear end that is so true. There's just something about spandex on any guy that has those famous biker v's on the back on his calves.

    BTW If you like reading stats try reading the 2005 Bike Magazine "Sex Issue" (their title, not mine). The issue has all kinds of women/men biker comparisons and interviews. I rolled all over the floor laughing while reading this one.
