My Athena Gina Vs Any U Clydes on Hybrids for Pinkslips!

I need a hybrid so I an hang out in the hybrid forum. You, her, pinkslips to the winner! 10 mile flat course! I had a hybrid but let some dude talk me into letting him buy it from me!

She did thousand of miles on this sucker before we hit the roadies. One of them bikes she just won't let go, along with the steel 84 Bianchi.

Not only for pinkslips, but another 25 bucks says Gina beats you buy atleast 2 minutes!

C'mon, any of you clydes!!!!!! Hurry, I need a hybrid!

Love them handlebars!! Sorry abot the messy face, she was making dinner!

She'd kill me if I even thought about letting her Bianchi go. Heck, she gets uspet when I don't polish it just right!

She'll just have to win the hybrid from you, after a big dinner of course!

I'll race. I'll fly out and rent a hybrid. Loser pays for the airfare and the bike.

I have to warn you though. I watched the video last night. It's All About Performance...

Dang you're smart! I knew there was something I liked about you!



Yes Alice. She knows, she told me to post the thread. She says it would be cheaper than buying me one. She's training right now!
