Merry Christmas to all

I just wanted to thank the members of this forum for all your help this year.
I look forward to not asking so many dumb questions next year.
Seasonal salutations

Even the "dumb" questions are fun. Pretty soon, you can answer 'em all.

Seriously, this is the best internet community I've ever been a part of. No flaming or nastiness or trollish behaviour,just occaisional prickliness from those who love certain bikes (certainly I include myself in that statement). This is the only board on the internet I will participate in. So thanks all for making this a decent place...

Thanks everyone - and a special thanks to everyone I've PM'd in the past year.

Whether you celebrate it or not, I want you all to have a really great Christmas.

May you all find a really nice hub in your stocking.
In search of what to search for.

Now that's much better than finding a stocking in your hub.

Happy holidays to all. Thanks for the information/conversation this year.

There are no such things as dumb questions, just dumb answers.

Merry Christmas everyone.

When I first joined - in April - I spent most of my time on the SS/FG forum. Dismayed, I looked around a little and found this one. Since then I have acquired:
A Univega Sportour
A Carlton Super Course
A Schwinn Collegiate
A mystery frame that may or may not be a Miele w/an almost complete Campy Victory group.
Shoe boxes full of odds and ends that, much to my girlfriend's frustration, clutter our tiny NY apt and spill out onto the fire escape. (The other day I got: "Honey, there's bike grease all over the dish towels.")
I am working on my own bikes for the first time in many years - fond memories of my dad teaching me how to repack hubs in his garage in Massachusetts, when I was 13.
So, thanks to all for sharing your knowledge & (whether you know it or not) convincing me to purchase miscellaneous items that I ABSOLUTELY NEED. happy holidays, Mike
