kids...

I just saw a kid on a brand new Giant OCR 3 with his bars pointed skyward (brifters pointing upside down). What a waste of money...

What's wrong with us kids these days?

Stealing bikes should be a hanging offense.

He looked awfully clean cut...panzy-like. I'm just saying, if he tried to steal my bike and got caught he wouldn't put up much of a fight. I think he just decided it wasn't comfy anymore..

This thread is funny on so many levels.

It's got the potential to go simply kaleidescopic.

if you're looking for entertainment, why don't you start another thread about how you're thinking of racing in the road racing forum.

Because i'm not thinking...i've already committed myself to 4 races in the coming months. I told you what my next post in that forum would be. I'm a man of my word botto, a manboy of my word.

Whatever happened to crushing on the co-eds during a boring lecture?

You're wasting your valuable college tuition dollars by wasting time on bikeforums, timmy. There are actually places that will pay you while you check out Foo!

But you'll have to find those mythical places on your own...
