    Does This Make Me Look Fat?

    It's one thing to be fat. It's another thing completely to have photographic proof.

    {link removed because of some asshattery.**

    (This is the article about my bike shop opening, for those who have been following that discussion...)

    I pictured you bluer, with a larger bill.

    Congrats on the shop. If my Muncie friends make it to your side of Indy, I'll send 'em your way.

    Photographs flatten an image out and make the subjects appear about ten pounds heavier, or at least that's what I keep telling myself. Good luck with the bike shop! I heartily approve of anyone trying to sell me bicycle related items.
    People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

    Great article!
    I hate to walk into a shop to be waited on by a skinny.
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

    I'm about 40 miles south of W.Laf. Hence, my membership in the Wabash River Cycling Club, which is based in Lafayette.

    You goin' to work at Purdue, or what?

    Riding from Pittsburgh to meet Tom Stormcrowe. Then up to Michigan to meet another poster. A three week tour.

    Ah!

    It's only 40 miles, yet Stormcrowe STILL hasn't graced me with his much smaller presence.
    I, obviously, can never ever leave. I've been at the store 7 days a week for the past few weeks.


    Ride in on US40, head north on 231, stop in Greencastle, and then continue on up 231 to West Lafayette. Easy.

    Congrats on the opening.
    If you were just a tad closer to Texas I'd drop by. . .
    Stormcrowe is up to his armpits in vB version 4 issues might explain his not being seen.

    Major Kudos on the Shop and your dedication to biking! Obviously you have been working so hard on other peoples bikes that you haven't had enough time to ride, that makes you a double hero, or just a larger than life hero, now don't get inflated ideas about your importance, your about to burst! SORRRRY. Im bad. If your online I will order some stuff. Got to Back the Clydes! We all need donut money.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
