    Bugger me! "Fabrizio" says something TRUE for a change.
    You're right to say I can't take them away, but that's
    only because you never had them in the first place. http:-

    I don't understand this little game you're playing
    here Dave.

    One thing for sure, come April 4th I'll be rolling out from
    Bruges at 10a.m. with my Domina Vacanze team mates for the
    start of the Ronde van Vlaanderen, now we're talking one of
    the big world cup races. Guys like me love April.

    Please don't argue about this, in fact, I invite you to meet
    me in the Lichtervelde start village before 9:30.

    If you want a treat, get yourself over to the Muur of
    Geraardsbergen, that's where I plan to put in my main
    attack!

    Anyway, see you after at the finish in Meerbeke-Ninove.

    I always get the feeling he's reading this out of a

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving is probably not

    It's a very simple one. "Fabrizio" makes a laughable claim
    to professional status; I search the net for, say, fifteen
    seconds and shoot it down in flames. Tell us how you got on
    in Het Volk this year, why don't you...

    I cannot, alas, be in Belgium until the following weekend.
    Does anyone know about long-term parking at the ferry
    terminal in Hull?

    Well, aside from the fact that "Etollie" is mis-spelled, and
    doesn't exist anywhere except in your post (and maybe your
    mind, like your "cycling skills" :)), the ACTUAL bike race
    (the "Etolie") and all it's groovy details and stages can be
    found here:

    http://www.cyclingnews.com/road.php?id=road/2004/feb04/bess-
    eges04/besseges041

    Big surprise! No mention of you, at all, anywhere, on any
    stage. There are a couple REAL cyclists named Fabio (close,
    but no cigar), but alas, they actually earned their
    position. Lemme guess though, they accidentally missed you
    and your placings on EVERY stage? LOL

    Hoser Poser Loser

    At least try to pick a name that actually exists if you want
    to poach a little glory :)

    Ooops . . . looks like your team forgot ALL your info on
    their team stats too, just like everywhere else on the
    planet . . . :) http://www.cyclingteam.net/squadra.htm

    There's a picture on the site of all the members too. Are
    you the guy in the back left with the mop and bucket?

    Guess who was instrumental in helping Franco Pellizotti get
    his fifth place finish on stage 17 at Sarnonico during this
    year's Giro d'Italia !

    Now how do you feel?

    Well, I "feel" that if I took a couple minutes to do a
    read on the race results it would be one more instance of
    a race participation that only happened in your mind. So
    I'll save myself a few seconds and just state now "Oh
    look! Yet ANOTHER race and TEAM where Fabioso doesn't
    exist . . . again
    . . . still . . "

    I think that's how I feel :)

    If you were really good he'd have finished higher than 5th

    well there are a few bike companys produce a modestly prices 3 wheel recumbent. if that if what you are looking at? i have not much experience riding recumbents in traffic but if you got a flag or lights to make yourself visible to traffic. maybe flags with lights? the posibilitys are endless when you are talking about avoiding certaint death.

    If you are new to recumbents I would not recommend riding one in traffic situations because it is a different style of riding and may take you a while to get used to. They can be difficult to handle because they don't have a great turning radius and you are not ass in control of the frame. Also is can be dangerous in traffic because you are so low to the ground that drivers will not be able to easily see you. If you are looking to buy a recumbent trike tho I would choose one with two wheels in the front and one in the back because they are easier to steer. Catrike makes a good quality recumbent that is comfortable and fairly easy to ride.

    Got that ReBike built up yet, Bikemad? Personally, I don't see any problem with riding most recumbents in traffic. They ALL - even my NoCom - turn in a tighter circle than a car. Tadpoles and lowracers might be low enough to cause concern in heavy traffic, but most recumbents are plenty tall enough to be seen. Besides, if tallness were the main safety factor, fewer upright cyclsts would be getting hit.

    get a flag if ur worried about cars..... no more or less dangerous than an upright '..recumbents are soo much more comfy than an upright bike... way way more aero as well... no amount of carbon can offset the air drag of an upright
