Now that is not going to happen. If Trya were anywhere near me, I'd notice.

As for the requested fees, I've got them, but payment will be made in Turkish Lira, indian rupees, or Swiss Francs.
Actually, the best way is to have your representative drop off a cashier's check drawn on the Bank of Nigeria for an amount significally in excess of what you actually owe. Then have Denver Fox wire your change to you via Western Union. That's what the rest of us all do.

I say he doesn't post til he's 50. Pretty soon all the posts will be about 45 deg pitch mountain biking trails.

Quick, get a USCF racing license, it will put you in the 50+ category at your 49th birthday.

Think I found some of those today. At least by being 50+ I didn't walk them- So yet another rule for the 50+ forum- Can't ride it- find a detour.

RIGHT! Youth, strength and skill are no match for old age, experience and treachery.

Three years and 2 months to go for me.
Every now and then I stick my toe in to check the temperature, and it's been a lot of fun!

Relax, one of the reasons I'm here is because of the over-abundance of "I only ride the hardest technical trails, with rocks the size of your head!!" talk, so common in most other bike forums on the web. I also grew weary of all this talk about something called "sweet jumps". If that is what I think it is, well, they used to make a device just that purpose. It was called a pogo stick.
