  1. HUGE props to Gary! He provided me with some like-new Sora shifters for the team bike that I've
    claimed as mine until and unless I get a road bike of my own. All I wanted were some old beat up 8
    speed downtube shifters, but he came through with these beauts!

    I was going to post pictures of them all mounted, but the bike is still not 100% together - finals
    interupted everything. They're on the bike, but not really connected to anything ;)

    Thanks a lot Gary! I'll get that Marzocchi hat and t-shirt off to you within the next couple of
    weeks. I've got so much stuff due/to
    do/packed/to pack that I probably won't be able to get it out before I get home.

    Thanks again, they'll be put to good use! Both on training rides, and maybe commuting to the bike
    shop for work a couple times a week to save some gas money.

    That's awesome!

    Now, with all this good will flowing in here, surely someone has a brand new 2003 Turner DHR frame
    just laying around looking for a good home or at least a Shiver.....come-on guys.....really......I'm
    broke and can't afford to buy one right now.

    Say what you like about Roadies, but one guy has been more than good to me. My wife's bike's
    drivetrain came almost whole from that guy's first road bike (Sora-in place of exage300 with roadie
    gripshift) and later he paid me for performing the upgrade on his current bike (to Dura-Ace) by
    giving me the almost new 105 stuff that came with the machine.

    NO DOUBT! and fixed would be even better..... I'd think a few weeks riding a fixed gear over Avon
    Mt. should build up some muscle mass ;-)

    Well, if I don't use it to bribe my chem teacher into NOT failing me in my final an hour and a half
    away, then I'm thinking I'm going to buy a new car. With GPS. And a naked chick in the front seat.

    Heh - sorry if this sounds cruel (and I don't have much room to talk), but I just saw a mental
    image of our Commander looking like a collection of pea kebabs, and it gave me quite a giggle
    heheh... ',;~}~

    LOL Jon, you didn't have to post this online. I got your email about the shirt and hat. I'm not
    going to sic the online crew to get you if you didn't acknowledge it to the public.

    He is a kind person, indeed. In an unsolicited gesture of that nature, he sent me a really cool
    headset cap that is very singlespeed specific. It's adorning the headset of the Ritchie Blackmore
    now. Yeah, thanks Gary.

    Thanks - I ended up kicking it's ass :)

    In this class, you get an A for the class if you ace the final, and I think I just might have. She
    let you bring anything you wanted, including old tests and the book, which was kinda strange - but a
    HUGE help. Seriously, there were 2 or 3 (out of like 18) questions that were pulled EXACTLY from the
    old tests, and only 4 or 5 that you really had to know your shit for (and thankfully, they were on
    shit I knew).

    Now I have to see if I can finish up this CAD lamp project before 6PM so I can go riding :)

    Got mine on the MonoCog.

    2002, that's me. The program is fantastic for doing 2D stuff, but it just doesn't make sense to use
    it for 3D - it almost seems like the 3d was an added feature onto a 2d program. Not cool.

    Thus, 2004 or Inventor. Sure wish I took more advantage of my employee discount and got a copy of
    Inventor while I was there ;-)
