Happy Holidays

I'm going to go way off topic, which is very rarely done in this forum.

I want to wish all of you very Happy Holidays and trouble free riding in the New Year. May all of your new frames fit, your upgrades work and all of your wheels remain true.

Happy holidays to you too Hillrider.

Actually I'm taking advantage of the low traffic christmas day to test ride a christmas present to dial in the fit. 2 am and I'm still wrenching so I can go out early in the morning for a test ride. Thanks to you and all the other people who share the benefit of your experience. I've done one upgrade (7 speed downtube to 10 speed STI) and one new build this year and I couldn't have done it without all the advice I read in this forum.

I was going to go out early, but I realized I forgot my front light. Trying to figure out a way to electrical tape my flashlight...

Thanks to all the wrenching pros, enthusiasts and wrench-wannabes like me who took the time to answer questions, share experience/knowledge and tend to all kind of biking-related neuroses on this forum.

Wishing all a fantastic 2009!

Regards,
