    Free stuff!!

    Yeah, who doesn't like free stuff? Someone pointed out that it's bad form to keep items that are sent to me for review. So the last item that I reviewed is going to one of my readers, I just haven't figured out how to determine who gets it. And I have more on the way. Even when I don't have something to review, I may just dig into my parts stash and give something away. It's a great way to get some traffic, plus generate some goodwill, since the manufacturers are providing the gear.

    That concludes my shill.

    That was me, and I think it's awesome! I just don't have any presta tubes yet. I'm || <-- that close to offloading my Ford Escort, though. Then I might have some skinny prestas to show for it.

    Geez, I got something rather expensive to test, and I can't get the company to return my emails.

    The irony of it all.

    - browse BF, pick a good post, and reward the poster?

    - i chatted w/John about doing some articles before the change of hands, but didn't hear back... dunno if BF is still interested in expanding content or not (don't see how that would fit in w/current forum software, but what do i know about running a site?)

    :-)
