I finally realized: The Fifty + Forum is the new 8th Grade! That's why we have all this drama!

I get it!

What good is that company, they only make girls bikes Seriously, they have some great looking bikes. I like the little extras like the designs around the bosses for the cables etc.

I had to clean up the drool from my keyboard after seeing the Santa Fe.

Those are all beautiful bikes.

Is it N+1 for me?

I am afraid that all this bickering is getting on my nerves- So go and Drink your milk and tidy your room- And get that bike out of the shower before it shrinks.

I taught 6th grade, and they topped the 50+ Forum.

Ever see a bunch of 6th grade girls get into an unstoppable crying, then hugging session? Sorry, the boys just don't do this. They just hit each other. Much simpler to figure out and stop.

Heck, it does remind me of the 50+ forum!

Yeh, but boys get over it quicker. Girls have long emotional memories and never forget.
