____________________________________________

Now that is a lot of posts!! that is ~12 posts a day, every single day, for almost 4 months straight!
WOW! lets consider that a post takes 4 minutes to write (on average, some are long some short), that's about 90 hours writing none stop.. If you add Reading time (you got to read before you reply), and add 10 minutes reading many posts, to every post written, it is 220 hours of reading. Total of ~310 hours of "work". If you are a "consulting type" you can charge (lets go low) $65 an hour, which will make it around $20k.. Or, if you consider an average speed (including climbing) of 15 mph, it comes out to 4,650 miles.. it is my mileage for the season..

And I spent 10 minute writing this post.. STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

Happy new year!!!

I actually clicked over 8,500 posts in total the other day. Having said that, I've been here since 2000 to do it.

True, as much as I rag on MERTON at least he doesn't pretend he's a better cyclist than everyone else.

hmm...didn't you drag your toes in the FX/SS forums too once? I seem to recall you spilled your juicecup and left. You should share your insight on a level gearing you have found and extoll its virtues to us. Additionally, you can tell us what a cold start at that high level is like and what you have done to become such a limber rider to stave off knee and joing problems using such a big gear. We wait anxiously. Really...we do not

I don't think it was directed at me as I don't recall ever going the FX/SS area (as much as I want to build a SS one day).

Uh. No. Perhaps you could explain to the rest of us clueless types.

Nah, he doesn't deserve any slack. Short history in carelessness.

The direction of my statement was for Mr. 53. I can see Rowan's confusion and MsMittens since my post was soon after hers, when in fact I thought I made it in after 53-11s.

MsMittens - come see us when you decide the SS thing needs to be done. Lots of great help in the FX/SS forum!

Hahahha....yeah I asked how to build one (got my answer from people that thankfully didn't listen to you), but how much can you really discuss about a bike that only has one gear?

Build it, ride it, Case closed. No further discussion is needed.

Nice Avatar.

Instead of 130mm rear hub.....I am probably going to have one of my steelies rear triangles squeezed back down to it's original 126mm size. It's got the horizontal drop-outs so it will make a good platform for the eventual project.

I've never seen it.

I'm a wrench, I work on road bikes daily. Something tells me I know a few things about road bikes. Care to try again troll?

How can you be interested in the things roadies are interested in without even owning a road bike?

My point is you work on road bikes because it is your job.....not because you have some passionate interest. Big Difference.

You have obviously had many chances to personally own a road bike (hahaha you work in a bike shop)......but you don't because it doesn't really interest you (obviously).
