    Perhaps the best choice would be to buy 2 of the carbon/ belt drive singlespeeds Trek made for 2010. One for you and one for me.

    Why do you feel the need to get rid of it? If you don't really need anything, then put it in a CD or something.

    Buy a Starbucks franchise. That will kill your free time as well.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    You think $10k is too much money, you ain't got $hit and probably will never have it. Keep drinking water to help your shallow brain grow some depth.

    It's not a good idea to drink so early in the evening
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Ah lighten up. I am pretty sure unemployment check is more then what a grad student makes. Don't see me getting all pissy about this thread.
    To OP. I am not sure what SS is, but got to be better then Harley.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    You should BUILD UP a new Nomad, black, XL, red Cane Creek 110 headset, Marz 66 1.5 fork, Azonic Outlaw red wheels, X.0, BB7 w/ ceramic pads, carbon levers, XTR cables, Next crank -- then box it all up and send it to DX-MAN.

    Your eyes are getting heavy...........

    +1 Lots of people in need this holiday season, maybe make a few kids happy during these hard times. Then treat yourself.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas
