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.

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?

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

Welcome to the fun house.

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.

Bill

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.

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

Hockey? That's when you skip school, isn't it?

Did anyone explain the initiation fee payable to each current member?
