Who are you and why are you on bike forums if you don't have the disease that is cyclopurchases?

Please leave restraint and panties at the door.
Oh my friend. Perhaps you don't have a wife and two children in college. Maybe FAFSA will be better to me this year.

I do have the disease, but my domestic bliss requires that I resist it from time to time.

My greenhouse/bike workshop speaks for itself. How many bikes do I need? More than I have! (Two for my wife, two each for my two kids who never ride them, five for me. That's hardly enough! )

Why spend a bunch of time and money refurbishing a bike that doesn't fit anyone in my family? Because I can!

Why take a bike to a shop for repair when you can buy a tool and do it yourself for 10 times more?

No skirt, no panties, but way too much lycra.

I have a Primal Jersey. Too hot for you it's called. It has flames on it and it's pretty darn cool. It has worn well and I enjoy wearing it. Primal has a lot of cool designs. Some don't get them, but they probably ride flatbars anyway. Go figure. I may qualify for being a clydsdale, but I ride it like I stole it! If it's one of my road bikes or one of my bents, I'm going for broke. I may be pushing 50, but I can hold my own with "kids" 20 years my junior. I just love wasting grey hounds on hills. ha. It give me the INCENTIVE to stay in shape. I'm no jock, never have been. If a cool looking jersey helps me float the boat, so be it. Rock on!

Jim

So your disease is simply in recession?

Really?! I love the twin six designs... well maybe that's cause I love the girl jerseys... and I am a girl... hehe. Maybe the boy ones aren't as cute.

I own several Primal jerseys. Good quality stuff, great customer service. Only place that makes a Led Zeppelin jersey, and I needs my Zeppelin Wear what you want; flaunt your Fredness. I do so proudly.
