Weak.

Had the potential to be funny, but delivery ruined it.

Not the case at all, it was a poor attempt at humor, stealing shit from Velominati.

This is much better done, and 4 years old:

FWIW, several of our members have enough disposable income to drop on several bikes a year without worrying about using an equity loan from their house

Roadies tend to be old white guys, which also tend to be wealthier and have more disposable income

Do you have explanation why there are very few women riding?

meh. I would say it references stuff from Velominati, considering they acknowledge The Rules in the middle of the video.

I think the coffee snobbery, absurd diet, and strava points were examples of good, original humor in OP’s video. Meanwhile, funny songs are nice, but I have to be in the right mood to not find them entertaining.

it’s not coffee snobbery… it’s taste. ‘

and WTF?!?! a Surly Straggler for cyclocross? That wouldn’t be an easy bike to shoulder with the steel tube and top-tube mounted brake cable. … and, their commuter didn’t have a rack!?! :( Yet the guy owns a titanium Salsa and a carbon Madone and time trial bike… f’n roadies.

I still find delivery to be meh. Satire is best shown, not told. It’s like the people that explain their jokes…

This one is pretty hilarious.
