Which holder?

Another question,can we ever be perfect?
and is it calculable?
If so,who does the calculation?

Getting into the realms of impossibility there.

Perfection is perfection.
The only judge can only be you personally.

It comes from Latin ‘to complete’.

In this context is it impossible or highly improbable?


It comes from Latin ‘to complete’.

But in what sense of to complete do you mean,to complete the ride or complete in a sense of can't be bettered,only equalled?

Perfection is perfection.
The only judge can only be you personally.

But what is perfection in your judgement?

IYSWIM???
If you see what I mean.
I had to look it up. :lol:

Perfection?
With respect to "man and machine in perfect harmony"?
When I ride MY bikes, they are machines, and I'm in perfect harmony with them, plus I'm a man too.

It's arguable that .........
a. it's perfect
b. I'm a man
c. my bikes are machines

Man and machine in complete and perfect harmony,never have a bad or fluffed gear change? over cook a corner? hit a pothole perhaps? think you could improve the man/machine combination?,etc,etc......

Must be why I sometimes experience man and machine in imperfect dischord :wink: .

I think the referee was wrong-it is unlikely anyone wearing such sheer shorts would risk breaking wind-to do so would invite posible embarrassment and public humiliation.I have known many cyclists who have transgressed and ridden home in great discomfoort-often toi the rear of the groiup.
