    Dude you have a weird bike.... What are atoms and why are they on your bike? Might want to replace them with some zipties or something.

    Bailing wire and duct tape! Same stuff that kept our deer blinds up on the deer lease when I was a kid. Oh, I also think there's some metal that's been melted together on the MTB and some melted metal acting as a glue on my road bike.

    Good maintenance and a wallet that gets thinner every time I look at the bike.

    Chuck Norris threatens my bike with great harm if it does not comply with my wishes to not fall apart.

    My bike respects the Chuck.

    On two of my bikes, I've replaced all the bolts with allen bolts. Now I just use 3 allen wrenches for almost everything (unless it needs a specialized tool.)

    The welds some chinese kid did a while ago are still holding up strong.

    Those Tainwanese kindergardeners weld at a 10th grade level ya know.

    Something you won't hear about on CNN

    The US is not only fally behind in science and math, but welding also.
