The other day on Podcast #266, Coach Robbie went into a rant about how triathletes are the worst when it comes to bike repairs and it created a new t-shirt character. Here’s what he said, regarding how we take our bikes in at the last minute.
“Don’t be Last-Minute-Larry like most triathletes and be like Hey I need to tune-up and the whole shebang . . . new tires, new tubes, true my wheels, grease the chain, and you know what, I even need a new chain I need the newest carbon sonic carbon graded super chain where I’m gonna gain 80 watts, and I need a new derailleur hanger made of gold and you know what go ahead and throw some aero bars on there. All right sir that’ll be $2,342. Okay, and I’ll need it back by, I don’t know, I’m thinking like tomorrow around 10 because I leave from my race on you know tomorrow at 10:15 so cool, sweet. Yeah and you wonder why bike shops hate triathletes.”
Sometimes the truth hurts, but it can also be funny. Get your Last Minute Larry shirt from our store.
