    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of flats, I will fear no goathead, for your spare tube is with me; your CO2 cartridge and frame pump, they comfort me.

    You prepare a frameset before me in the presence of my non-existent budget; you anoint my headtube with oil; my parts bin overflows.



    OK I'll stop. Guess I'm going to hell now.

    Hell no! Your paraphrase is from the Hebrew scriptures, specifically Psalm 23, and for the most part, Jews don't believe in hell, so you are golden!

    Very well done, however!

    Thanks all, being a preacher's grandkid pays off sometimes. Back to the OP, however -- on further reflection I think Jesus would really be into drillium. You know, because it's holy.

    Sweet 8 pound 6 ounce sweet baby jesus in his golden fleece diapers would definitely put a trailer onto the bike and rock the Prato-side descent of Stelvio. There is no doubt the sweet baby jesus prefers the Italian dolomites over the French alps.

    Follow-up: I offered to buy the brifters, he suggested I just buy the whole bike for $70. Turns out he only paid $120 for the bike (better than the $150 I originally thought). He just wants space in his garage and a bit of $$ back out. I took him up on the offer. Now I can part it out, turn it into a fixie, donate it or do whatever else I want.

    Uh-oh! I see a rattle-can paint job and a serious case of upgrade-itis coming on.

    His disciples only wrote about his ministry from age 30 on. I'm guessing it took Him 10 years or more to build up His repertoire. That was some serious stuff He was laying on everyone, and while His writer was pretty good, His material still had to be tried out on the road to polish it into final form. Just a thought from a hopeless heretic.
