    By Jove! You've got it! Except for adding a superfluous sticker to the helmet.

    Gadzooks. Have you been looking in my bike shed again? This is getting scary.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Yep. that's the bike for me. I would want a mirror though.... after I drop some 20 year old I want to watch them sitting back there like so much roadkill trying in vain to recover enough for another useless attack.

    To take the name of one of the best named MTB's in the UK- That bike is the DGS BLX. That is the true name of it and is a well treasured bike if you have one.

    Incidentally- A Kids TV program was doing a Prog on Mountain Biking and one of the presenters rode one of the races. He was Given a DGS BLX as his ride bike- but they had to modify the name so as not to offend. Luckily the frame was white so Typewriter correction ink blocked out part of the name to read GS LX.

    Boobed again- gone onto the site to prove the name and they have changed it. Now a bit more explicit but site is http://www.robertscycles.com/p_mtb.html

    I guess I don't understand. What part of DGS BLX would be offensive?

    I'm thinking the BLX has to do with "bollix."

    This according to my online dictionary. Stapfam can correct me. He actually speaks English:

    Verb 1. bollix - make a mess of, destroy or ruin; "I botched the dinner and we had to eat out"; "the pianist screwed up the difficult passage in the second movement"
    Synonyms: botch, bumble, fumble, botch up, muff, blow, flub, screw up, ball up, spoil, muck up, bungle, fluff, bollix up, bollocks, bollocks up, bobble, mishandle, louse up, foul up, mess up, fu*k up
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

Hence the shortening of the Coloquialism to 6 letters, so that at a glance, although you may take a second glance to ensure that it is not a swear word, it cannot offend. Unfortunately The same cannot be said about our Gary. No amount of shortening his name will bring him on a par to the Mutts Nuts.

    No - Elist is the official internet "list" ("E" list) kept and used by the internet police to identify "Elitist" bicyclists.

    Hi Guy's
    Greetings from Wickenburg, AZ, Day 3 of Fast Cross America Bike Tour.
    It is really a work out so far. Tomorrow will be the most difficult climbing Day. I hear 11,000 ft total for the day. I will let you know how that goes. To this point I have managed to stay with the first 30% of bikers to arrive at the motel. It is definitely a mental thing. Training a lot on the CycleOps Fl2 was relevant.
    More later. Got to sleep and get up at 5:00 AM every morning. Arrive at Motel from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
