    What happen'd to the C50.

    I had to sell it...

    because I needed to help my mom pay off her car.

    The creditors started calling about late payments, and she still had almost $1400 left on the balance, so I sold it to an LBS for $2000 USD and used that to finish of the car and for a months rent.

    I gave my Navigators team kit to a good friend.

    I'm apoligize to the OCP, JOCP and all affiliates of said organizations.

    It's hard to be poor and a poseur.

    Oh, can a Mod put an apostrophy (SP?) between the "n" and the "d" in "happend"?

    Or just put an "e" in there, doesn't matter.

    That sounded like the right thing to do, you can always get another one when you can. Good for you, 200 karma points and a solid pat on the back!!
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Sorry to hear you had to give up your bike. It's not much consolation at the moment, I know, but you did the right thing.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Good job mr. man of the house. Although w/ the price of gas, maybe you should've sold the car and bought a recumbent or trike for your mom.

    Thanks, d00d.

    Can I call you "d00d"?

    She has to drive to Albion from Spencerport, do you know how far that is?

    It's a 45 minute drive. That'd take her at least 2 and a half hours on a 'bent.

    Pee-Ess: Thanks, mystery mod. It looks good.

    Ya done good. It'll come back around to you one day.

    An "e" instead of an apostrophe would have looked better though.

    I hope it does, a winning lottery ticket would be nice.

    Nah, the apostrophes are the trendy thing.

    Thanks, d00d.

    It sucks not having a $4000 frame to wake up to anymore.

    Is that how you people spell "righteous"?

    What the hell, you lost big time on the bike. I would've taken out a loan or put it on my credit card, it's only 1400.

    Then again, I sacraficed (for now) new carbon wheels to get my dad a digital SLR and lens (which I use too ) so I know how that feels.

    Yeah, I got two, complete with team kits.

    They just aren't as OCP as the See Fiddy.

    D00d, the creditors already have our family's name blacklisted.

    The only plastic I got is a Debit card.

    I even have a hard time using that.
