Thank you for the congratulations. No one here needs to bow down to me though. I'm not a king or a president, I'm just a member here with a little bit of extra control to make things better for the community.

Tmowery18, I didn't block you from AIM, I just don't really go on it. If you catch me online, it may be the sign of the apocalypse. Also, unless you really ask a really stupid question, you aren't wasting my time.

EDIT: Thanks, Expat.

OK, heres a stupid question for you.

http://www.danscomp.com/101425.php?cat=BIKES

That is the bike I'm getting. I don't really like the color. I am probably going to paint it within a month or two. Should I just use spray paint? Should I go right over the stickers and stuff?

Absolutely not! Sand down the frame first or at least remove the decals and scuff the paint.

Frame painting tips (for a road bike, but will apply to your frame also): spraypainting a frame

I couldn't have picked it better myself.
Also, what's wrong with the color? It's pretty cool.

There is nothing wrong with a euro BB. I'd rather have a mid or an american, but euro bb's are just fine.

Euros break to easy, and you have to service them and replace them more often, and are gay, and for mtn bikes. Mid is where it's at.

Spanish is basiclaly the same as euro, but the bearings just press in, instead of thread in. They are a bit easyer to service and less of a chance to screw something up since there is no threads. I think they are also a tad bigger due to not having the threaded cups and just pressing directly to the frame. I forgot they switched it to spanish though. I'd still rather have that.

Fuzzy: Try not to use the "g-word" because if anyone happened to read this by any chance that was a homosexual (even though I doubt it), you could really get into trouble.

Tmowery: I don't really like the spanish BB so much. The BB's just come in different sizes and such, but I'm sure someone will find that handy link that shows what all of them are. I realize the color is a little bright, but you might get used to it.

Who cares, don't be stupid, stay in school.

Mod Note: That's a good tip. Don't make me tell you again. Just because I am new at this doesn't mean you can try my patience. I am looking out for you.

Gay is not offensive most of the time, especially when describing a part, which obviously doesn't have a sexual preferance...

"Gay" can be offensive to some people, and to call something bad "gay" is very disrespectful to those people. "Gay" is getting to be the new version of the old racial slur for African Americans. I don't really want to get into all of this because it would get into a big debate and I really don't think you need to do this on my first day. Just try not to do it.
