David Rome has written a great list of problems for the modern roadie on the main site: http://www.bikeradar.com/road/gear/arti ... ave-43414/

Anyone else got any others we should add in?

    Finding the internet down at work or the Bike radar site down for maintenance. How else to kill the time at work? :)

    Spending (wasting?) time on the 'net looking at various cycling forums, while I could be out riding.
    Lets just got for a ride, the heck with all this stuff...

    I thought it was an annoyingly rubbish sad list that should not really be added to.

    I did quite like number one. Not for any deep/nasty reason though.
    Would make a comical birthday card I reckon.

    Your winter kit weighs more than your bike.
  • I must not be very road oriented, or not be very modern, because I have none of those problems. I just ride my bike, and use Strava on my phone to record.

    That, of course IS your GPS.

    Can honestly say I've never experienced any of those.

    Mine would be:

    1. GPS unit reminds you of turn too late - que screeching brakes and mad dash turn.
    2. Turning right results in getting cold whilst waiting for traffic to clear
