    Just Joined up.

    You guys sounded sensible with a touch enough wiseass where this could be fun.
    The bike guy is putting my too big framed Wildwood back in running condition and I bought a box of bandaids.

    Hola... as to the sensible part, are you sure you were reading this forum?

    Let's go, Caps!

    And because I really don't like what's being shoved at me as "the face of the NHL": Let's go, Flyers!!!!!!
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    Before we give the big" Hi, how are ya" welcome, you need to answer three important questions. 1. What type of bike do you ride and where is the picture? 2. What type of pie do you prefer? 3. Most importantly have you had your colonoscopy yet and if not why not?

    Go Wings. Welcome to the forum and we Hockeytown guys will be seeing you later.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Welcome to the Tread where everyone knows most everything all the time. To learn the rest we talk to each other. Things like-

    COYOTES RULE!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    In addition we require all the juicy tidbits about N+1 acquisitions. These are four very important items, yes indeedy.

    Welcome to the newbies here. Be sure you post up in the stickie thread at the top of the 50+ forum page in the new comers thread. As said, post your bicycle in a thread, tell us what kind of pie you like and schedule the colonoscopy as soon as possible. If you have had a colonoscopy in the last 12 months please provide written, notarized proof of the procedure to Digital Gee as soon as possible. All Club Tombay applications must be posted here and approved by the Council of Elders. And Stay off my grass you kids.

    Wait - huh???

    Proof of colonoscopies is to be forwarded to Dudelsack. Don't you remember when we changed the Bi-laws? (Or was that the in-laws?)

    Welcome - no running with scissors, get your endoscopy and colonoscopy, but don't let them use the same camera, pie and bike information required, and Blackhawks Rock!

    Greetings, I bid you welcome!

    This is a good place. I'm afraid I don't follow sports much, but if you like 1950s science fiction movies, or 70s Grindhouse splatterfests I'm the man.
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    Ans.- 1) Diamondback Wldwood, but frame is too big, so I'm shopping and riding the WW on the trainer to start building up some strength-2) Yes, please, 3) Yes and I can send you a copy of the picture the Doc gave me if you want.
    The Sharks just flat aren't good enough this year, so I'm throwing my hat to the Wings--- or should I say throwing my Octopus.
    Any thought on the Specialized comfort bikes-- I've cruised thru the search but didn't really find any current thoughts
