I’ve noticed that I get more respect by motorists when I commute by bike than when I ride my road bike with full ‘roadie gear’. My theory is that some roadies are just pompous asses and disrespect motorists AS WELL as other non-roadie cyclists. While most commuters do respect traffic and pedestrians, and we are not as concerned with wearing $300 SIDI shoes and ride with Nashbar Specials.

Do you agree or disagree?
