How does my computer know this about me? Damn.

Seriously, quite a ridiculous product advert that pops up once in a while on BF. Keep your eyes peeled, you'll chuckle when you see it.

Not so fast! See, it's all part of my master plan to circumvent the advertising block. HA!

Yes, that's right. I'm Billy Mays for the Pedal Master 1000, available now for only $19.95, but only if you act in the next 60 seconds. And if you order today, we'll include a second unit FREE, so you and a loved one can exercise your fat arses on the couch, side by side. But wait, there's more....

Really, no one's going to buy this thing? Your loss.

We'll need at least three versions:

basic for the retro grouches
powercranks for the wierdos
SRM for the technogeek ocp types

...not to mention the recumbent version which comes with a 3' stand.
