Not bad.  Would be nice if there was also pinyin.  Also, needs a few related items added:

Car!
Look Out!
AAAAHHHHH!!!!
Compound fracture.
It's only a flesh wound.  ahahahahah

The pinyin will appear if one did cut n paste the words to, say, Google Translate.


But yes, bicycling in China is a good way to calibrate your cursing. So many circumstances, so often repeated. One practices a lot.

I didn't know bikes had rear suspension. The mind boggles!

A full suspension bike with knobby tires is really only for highly technical cross country riding. You see it on consumer bikes because the consumer market is a crock. Lots of technical stuff sold because it looks cool. Even front suspension is mostly unnecessary on a road bicycle.

For the record my bicycle's an MTB with front suspension and I mostly ride on paved roads. But it's China paved road and that sometimes means big holes and long stretches of lumpy mud so... But I didn't really make the purchase decision thinking that hard about road conditions. I'm just more used to hybrids than actual road bikes.
