Best GT of the year.

Planning on getting wet in the rain today so I'll get the flu or something to call in sick and stay cozy at home for the Giro.

You can bet I'll have a hard on just thinking of Aru moving that ass up the Alps.

I hope Hesjedal has a good two weeks and then gets destroyed in the third. Get his and his team's hopes up and then seeing them crushed.

I want Nibali to win with Fuglsang on the podium (a girl can dream)

Buy 2nd hand.
If you think 1500 is a lot, you haven't even seen what things that are almost as important as decent bike cost.
Proper bib shorts and jerseys.
Good cycling shoes.
A good seat.
Good position.
Good tires.
These will make much huger deal than you'd think, mare than the bike. Actually, a good seat (for you, don't buy the marketing BS, you'll have to try a lot of them) and cycling shoes along with some professional fitting will be much more important than the bike.

t.spent like 8000€ so far

No, a Fred is the opposite.
A Fred has no clue on the traditions, etiquette or even if something he buys has any real benefit.

I started cycling a decade ago.
My first bike was a aluminum 2nd hander I bought for 400€ and I spend like 80€ on shoes and clothes total.
Over time, as I got better, I tried better stuff for what I needed and that suited the kind of cycling I enjoy.

Now, fuck off.

that is literally you

non-freds use chinkcarbon or old CAADs, etc. if you're paying more than 100eurodollars for cleats, seat and bibs COMBINED, you're being ripped off like the fred looking mong you are

I'll be watching them go by on saturday, while drinking a pink beer that a brewery that's on the route has made for the occasion.
Should be fun.

Sounds great! Mad jelly that Holland has so many grand tour starts atm.
The Giro start in Denmark was on the other side of the country from me so couldn't be bothered. We should get the TdF start in 2019 or 2020 though. Hopefully they include Copenhagen.
