Whats a Fred?
If your a MTB'r , a Fred could be a poser, a newb, or what I believe it basically comes down to, someone you'd be embarrassed riding with.
Fred though is really a roadie term.
We all know roadies are stuck up snobs so there defination of a Fred is wide an varying.Just to piss them off (and cause it makes my ride more comfortable) I installed the following item onto my road bike.
You see the silver thing the handle bars are attached to?
Thats a stem extender.
Thats what us old farts put on our bikes to make them more comfortable.
Sure go ahead and laugh.
It works though.
Best $20 I've spent on bike upgrades.
