When I was moderator, everyone was sent to time-out in their room with no computer and no bike and
no beer and no women for a week.

here's a concept: post a ride report. tell us about an bike adventure you had. I just love it
when people ***** (oops, is that another one?) about off topic content but don't provide any on
topic content.

Am I mistaken, or didn't Fagerlin depose G.T. last month? I sorta remember reading G.T.'s
concession speech.

Yeah, but I got bored and Pete couldn't handle the pressure so I usurped his powers.

Yes, your response is in the mail and I have cc'd my assistant Pete Fagerlin. Pete monitors the
moderation software when I'm off-line.

You have been banned for extremely poor taste pertaining to the method in which you scribble your
anti-alt.mountain-bike diatribes while proceeeding to delete previous context.

Please report to the nearest Usenet etiquette FAQ, say 25 Hail GTs, write a letter of capitulation
and mail it to ICANN, throw your Jekyll under a steamroller, and buy a Huffy.

Yours truly, The Moderator

You've been banned. Learn how to post and maybe we'll let you rejoin our exciting little club.

Ah, yes. I AM shopping for a new bike so anything will help. My PayPal account is getreg at
sbcglobal dot net (I get enough Usenet spam in this account). But I think Commander Bond's recent
solicitation for donations is much worthier than my cause at the moment.

Jon, how about setting up a PayPal account if you don't already have one? I've got plenty of
ill-gotten gains from selling overpriced used vinyl on Ebay in my account. I'll start off with $10
and match the second donor's amount (within reason).

Hmmm, that's certainly an idea. Now I just have to find $80 to donate to myself right after
you donate ;)

I'll look into that. I just ordered the frame today (1380 including shipping), ordering the fork
soon (trying to decide whether to get it for 450 and move my current chris king headset to the new
bike, or 550 with a free chris king headset....), waiting for the shimano groupset to be shipped
in... then 200 wheels from jenson usa, a seatpost from performance (20% coupon), some bits from my
current bike, and maybe a few showy items just for fun (carbon spacers and those lizard skins carbon
frame protectors... hehe, I'm so vain).... it all adds up to a lotta dosh ;)

450 or 550 with a "free" CK headset?!? Speedgoat's differential with/without is closer to $50 or 60
I believe.

What wheels are you getting from Jenson? I'm considering Cane Creek Aeroheats or Sun-Ringle RPM
Lites from Supergo (local purchase, not shipped) for $219. (Although I *should* splurge and get
something hand-built.)

speedgoat is 550 for the fork w/ free headset. The other price is due to that whole sponsorship
gig... did I mention I was sponsored before? I probably didn't... ;)
