    Stop The Bleeding---

    Wow-----that was a little silly.

    Shill, Steal, Subvert, Spam, Seduce, Sukker----I cannot think of any other 'S' word that I saw today. I did learn some things though. I think that me finding a Footbike was like some people finding religion---they want to tell the world about it, even if the world doesn't want to hear it.

    My deal? An 'X' Bike Racer-----44 years old, that last saw the podium in 2003. I was looking for a 'new' single speed, a new ride, a new way to train, a way to get in my base miles while adjusting to a new baby and two temporary kids. Telling my new wife the I was heading out for a 6 hour training ride was like telling her about our future divorce.

    So I found the Footbike. It is weird, it hurts, it's fun, it is different, it works and now I love my bikes even more. 6 miles is a long way on a Footbike. A baby boomer sold it to me and I drank the Kool-Aid-----thus my journey to this forum and to 55+ land to tell everyone what I found. I couldn't get the grip of forums and bulletin boards when they first happened-----looks like I am still stuck.

    I will come back and visit in 12 years and see how you guys are doing......peace.

    KickItUp,

    If your last posting is sincere, then I'm both happy that you've found a new way to exercise and sad that that you feel abused. The problem, in a nutshell, is that your posting that started this thread (as well as several of your messages in other forums) have ALL the earmarkings of a shill trolling for business. It's an extremely brief note with a reference to a new product, but with no discussions about pros/cons of the device; there's no explanation of your relationship to the company (user, saleperson, president); and your homepage points to a commercial site.

    So the bottom line is that we don't object to new ideas...just so long as you're up front about your intentions. Cheers.

    You left out posting the same basic message in multiple forums on the day you registered at BF. Another sign of a shill.

    The Real Problem---

    Was listening to 50 people telling me what it is that I supposed to be doing. I was advised to delete all my posts, I was advised to replace all of my posts, I talked to the folks that run this site, I listed in different forums to talk and to tell the tale to different people--------simple! I thought people were supposed to get smarter as they got older.

    It is just another set of wheels, not anymore, not any less.

    The term, Velocipede, probably applies better to the Footbike than to a regular bicycle. I still think a lightweight, compactly folding version might have an application for connecting to transit at each end of the bus line.

    Well...I'd argue that we do. Unfortunately, we've been burned by our fair share of folks who've tried to "pull the wool over our eyes" (e.g., business folks trying market their products by posing as enthusiastic users). So, as the song goes, "pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start all over again" (albeit wiser).

    I think this must be a test of the theory that there is no such thing as bad publicity in business. How's he doing?

    If neither gets enough votes to win, then let them race on scooter bikes for the nomination.

    Arkansans don't hunt ducks with *****s.

    Have you been out hunting with John Kerry?

    Well, I guess it depends on the season. They might use shotguns, bows, crossbows or blackpowder.

    Never hunted. And not with John Kerry. Nope. I didn't know he was from Arkansas. .

    I've met former Governor Huckabee several times, and work for former Governor Tucker, just talked with him yesterday. but not Kerry.

    From the Arkansas hunting regulations:

    Illegal Hunting Methods

    You may not hunt migratory waterfowl:

    With a trap, snare, net, *****, ******, swivel ***, shotgun larger than 10 gauge, punt ***, battery ***, machine ***, fish hook, poison, drug, explosive or stupefying substance.

    From a sink box or any other low floating device that conceals you beneath the surface of the water.

    From a motorboat or sailboat, unless you shut the motor off or furl the sail and the vessel is no longer in motion.

    Using live birds as decoys.

    Using recorded or electrically amplified bird calls or sounds.

    While possessing any shot other than approved nontoxic shot.

    With a shotgun that can hold more than three shells, unless you plug it with a one piece filler that cannot be removed without disassembling the ***.

    From or by means, aid or use of any motorized vehicle or aircraft. If you are a paraplegic or are missing one or both legs, you may hunt from a stationary motorized land vehicle.



    Most Arkansans will not fire anything other than a shotgun into the air at a bird of any kind, and there are legal limits on the maximum shot size (T or BB depending). If you see or hear of someone doing that, report them to your local Wildlife Officer.

    No, Kerry wasn't from Arkansas, but during his 2004 campaign he told some hunting stories that proved he wasn't a hunter either.

    You really ought to try the duck hunting in and around Stuttgart.

    Less. Much less. You were trying to push your product without paying the freight either in dollars or in reputation. People here were not as easily fooled as you had hoped.

    If you want ads, buy ads. Leave the scamming and spamming to the pond scum.
