Which we were a couple of months ago.

My mate with the Colnago C50, Record 2004, carbon everything, turned
up today with his new Campag Hyperon Ultra wheels. Carbon rims, carbon
hubs with ceramic ball bearings. Very nice. $6,000 a set. And then you
have to get the special brake pads :)

Words of wisdom indeed. It's not the flashy toys that count, but
skill. :cool:

He can and does.

Ahahaha, online spelling bees can be fun, re: the recent Detroit thread.
<http://www.cyclingforums.com/t121749.html>

Off topic a bit, but last year a dumb troll kept messing up the message
boards on b3ta,

"...Catchphrases. Never underestimate the power of a catchphrase. "Your
All Gay" (yes, spelt like that) started when an illiterate troll from
poo.com turned up on our site. His taunts became our taunts and Reverend
Dan turned the whole thing into a catching little barbershop quartette
thingie with Oscar Wilde. .."

*Not quite safe for work warning* <http://www.yourallgay.com>


enjoy:D

'carp' was intentional, you silly backpacker :)

thawt it better than typing out 'Cr@p' and is my way of
blaspheming around the kids. I used to live 3 doors down from what
is now Cafe Racer, and back then being Turkey Tom's (late 80's)
MilkBar/General Store with life giving fruit juices and fried food
for the morning-after!

the "ars" ;-)
