    By the way, do you live in Australia? I saw you out on the road just yesterday, you let something slip in another post - so I know it was you:D .

    Only aussies use the term 'oz' so he's almost certainly 'one of us' <shudder>.

    I only replied because I didn't want to miss anything - it's sadistically voyeuristic seeing adolescents making knobs of themselves:)

    Mind you, I'll probably be 'planked' for it. When's the first team ride?

    By the way he uses English, he sounds more Western Europe, possibly French? Where is "plank" used as a derogatory term?

    At his house. Growing up, his parents called him Plank, so now it's obvious why he's attached the meaning to it that he has.

    Haha wow. This has been the least informative, but most entertaining thread I have ever read on any forum, cycling or otherwise.

    My sincerest apologies, I had no idea you were an abused child. This is something I suspected, but now I fully understand.

    My sincerest sympathies.....I understand now that you can't help yourself.

    Just thought I'd move this thread back up to the top of the list again.

    hey everyone - I think I'm getting through to Steelem, he is starting to joke with me. Maybe we can make this young ruffian into a respectable roadie yet.

    Gurly frame.
    R-Sys wheels, Keo pedals, Ritchey post are all OK.
    The rest of the upgrade is no better than the parts you replaced.
