    I'm Crazy (i think)

    You guys ever see the new Trek Catalogue? I have it here at my desk for like a few months now. I have read it at least 30 times. I just stare at the bikes over and over again. I must be nuts. I just looked at it now. :confused:
    :cool:

    I can honestly say I have NEVER even looked at a Trek catalog, much less wasted hours looking at one!
    (Now the web site at www.fujibikes.com is a whole 'nuther story!! That and the fact that I don't have a Trek catalog to drool over!!)
    Trekn, if you are crazy, I think you have a lot of good company here! Come to think of it...lock us all away with our catalogs and bikes....padded rooms to play in....acres and acres of nice grass...concrete bike trails...kinda sounds like the Bikeforums Community in another string, doesn't it!?

    nebill, Fuji bikes are cool. I just checked out the website, and if I didn't have my mind set on buying a Raleigh, I would think about becoming a Fuji dude myself.

    Hi Ya AF!
    Yeah, I really like my Fujis! Being a newbie, in all honesty, they are all I have ever ridden, but I am sure that some of those other brands might come close to the quality of my bikes!! (Am I proud, or what!?!) I really have been happy with them, though. They both ride nice, and have the ability to perform way beyond my current capacity (although I am still working on that!)

    Trekn, I work for an ISP, so playing on the 'net is what I get to do all day! Ain't life grand!?

    I've looked through the Litespeed catalog several dozen times. I've even sent a few "loveletter" emails to them.
    Now that I own one (it's almost two months old), I wear my Litespeed "polo" shirt to work at least once a week. And yes, I still have the catalog to look through and a bookmark for their website. (http://www.litespeed.com/html/road/road.html)

    Tuscany, Tuscany, rah, rah, rah!!!

    Well Trekn,
    there's nothing wrong with looking at those cataloques, but if you start buying all the thing on the catalogues, then for sure your gonna be in trouble with the wifey or maybe not .....

    I also have a file box full of catalogs from Performance, excelsports,pricepoint,colorado cyclist,supergo, Nashbar hasn't sent me a catalog yet and its kinda making me mad. Sometimes I'll be rocking my little sister in the family La-z-Boy and I'll send one of my brothers for my "bike stuff" box.
    The other day my boss gave me some Power Grip pedals, when I got home I had two priorities: 1st, I had to go to the bathroom, 2nd, I wanted to get the new pedals on my bike. But I didn't want to wait to do either. So my solution? I grabbed a few tools, the pedals,my bike and headed for the bathroom. Talk about crazy!!!

    Well, I guess I'll need a tool chest and a bike stand too. Maybe I'll get in BIKE magazine as the most efficient mechanic of all time.

    I have a subscription with Bicycling and regularly buy from the bookstore Procycling and Cycle Sport, and and Colorado Cyclist and Excel Sport they send catalogue to me, but as soon as they start filing up in my living room, I just give them up to the Medical clinic in my neighborhood, that way I might be able to encourage some sickly people in the cycling sport......
