My name is . . . and I'm an Addict

Ok, it goes something like this:
I love bike porn, I pore over the latest
catalogues from Colorado Cyclist, Excel, World Cycling,
Nashbar etc.
I frequent way too many cycling relate web sites
I'm constantly hanging out at the LBS drooling
over some new techno bit, or bike.
But the worst is e-buy. I have like 5 saddles
(and I'm looking at another), an assortment of
stems and bars (well mostly stems) and
I Can't stop. I look at vintage colnago's,
all serotta's, rims, tires, tools. . .
Am I a very sick puppy?

Wow, at leaset you've made it through the first step. Admitting that you have a problem. Denial is the worst. I'm not an addict myself (see what I mean?).

I can give up cycling anytime I want to...uhm...err...uh...It's just that I don't want to, but I could if I did want to, really, it wouldn't be a problem!

threadend begins to sweat profusely and shake uncontrolably

Heck, I've quit thousands of times before and I could do it again, what's that? you say I can't? You dare me to quit this second, okay your on! Oh shoot, I just remembered, I can't quit this week because...uh...uh...uh...my walking shoes are being resoled, yeah, that's it, and I won't get them back until mid August at the earliest, so I have to ride until at least then,but if it weren't for that I'd show you.......

Lotek -

I thought you would spot this! I saw you over there and remembered the domain name. (I used to work for a division of CSC in the distant past. I was originally interviewed by Van Honeycutt whose name may ring a bell with you.)

Yeah, you're right. I couldn't believe it when he posted his "partial" list!!!!

Steve

Steve,

I've been on Serotta board since before Kahuna built
the current board. It somehow seemed a little friendlier
before all those calfee pukes started jumping in
I really like Bigmac's posts, as well as dbrk.
Its really funny to see what mavic1010 is selling/buying
this week.
I sign in as Marty but have used other names in past.
BTW as for the post, I just got Brooks saddle, guess
where I got that idea?

Marty
