Vote for CBhungry's anniversary gift!
 
Cast your votes, remember that I am unempolyed as far as earning income goes. I take care of our little one while CB works her butt off, such a nice one too ;).

If I did sell the Scalpel it will not yeild enough cash to buy nearly as nice a bike as it already is.

Anyway, Let me know what you think.

Oh, and BTW, she needs a medal of honor for enduring my company for 6 years. I can't get along with myself for that long!

Hand-me-downs make poor anniversary gifts. Go for the box of chocolates :-)

midwestmntnbkr 02-24-04 04:46 PM

so far the overwellming result is to leave town!
Geee...you have made quite an impression with your fellow forum members. :lol: :lol:

If you worry too much about what others think of you then you are not worrying enough about what makes you happy.

that's a bit hypocritical...since you put up a pole to ask others opinions on what gift to get, then say you shouldn't worry about what others think.

I would have thought that out a bit better. :lol: :lol:

Hmm, the traditional gifts for the 6th anniversary is candy or iron, so the chocolates do fit. However, a brand new steel framed bike would be awesome. Something fun for her (maybe) would be a Bianchi Pista! :D

SamDaBikinMan 02-24-04 05:32 PM

Still looks like I need to pack.

hillyman 02-24-04 06:07 PM

You probably won't like my suggestion but; sell a gun , party less, buy her something she wants, tell her shes more important than either one :)

Well if you head this way you can always crash on my futon. :D

Somehow I think CB would be happy with anything you gave her ;)

NZLcyclist 02-24-04 06:28 PM

uhh what happens when she finds this post?

You know after reading so many of Sam's and CB's posts I never realized they were a couple. Here you have Sam the Crank Crushing Redneck and CB who is always polite and helpful. Guess this just proves opposites attract.
PS Sam, CB should have a better bike than you. ;)

dexmax 02-24-04 06:58 PM

i would have voted for you to leave town so she could find a better man...

But I figured, you were giving away bikes... that's makes you good enough :D.. just kidding..

give her the scalpel.. give here a box of chocolates.. and leave town..

Zin 02-24-04 07:02 PM

I think she deserves a bike that fits right and is NEW even if its not quite the component set you would like. For her birthday, you could upgrade the NEW bike to Campy or Ultegra. :)

Good luck, and Happy Anniversary!

Since she forgot our Anniversary the past two years maybe it will remind her ;)

That would be the perfect gift!

If she gets the Scalpel she will have the nicest bike speaking strictly about components and cost. My EPIC has lesser components and is a less expensive bike overall by about 600.00. But being used it will not bring nearly enough to replace with similar quality.

She and I ride the exact same size bikes except in road bikes where the sizes come in much tighter increments. We are only 2cm different there. Mountain bikes we are identical so all her bikes fit me and all mine fit her. Cool huh? Our seat heights are within 3/4 inch of each other from center of BB. Her only preference is a more upright position with a riser stem.

joeprim 02-24-04 08:11 PM

Sam it's not the impression you made with the group. We're all in love with cb - that's why they are telling you to leave town (I'm too old for her or I would have voted that way too). The hell with money get her the bike she likes You can find a way to take care of little Sam and raise a little cash. Baby site for some of her friends ...

Good luck and happy anniversary to both of you!

Hmm, I forgot that our anniversary was coming up. (I'm just not into these things. I even forget my twin sister's birthday). If anything, Sam deserves a full bike shop for all my absentmindedness with such things like anniverseries and birthdays, christmas.....Heck, I couldn't even get together a birthday party for samantha's second year; my usual excuse, I was working.

As for the above choices....

1) Leaving town would just be impracticle since who would take care of Samantha while I was at work? Who else can find my beeper, cell phone and my glasses which I lose two to three times a day?


2) Don't much care for choclates

3) Why sell a bike in perfect usable condition that fits my height?

4) So that leaves.........guess what...hee, hee ,hee. (Besides, he hasn't ridden the Scalpel since he got the Epic.....or is this a ploy for me to buy him a bike for our anniversary?)

Now let's hope I remember this year.

Absolutely NOT. The next new bike in our house should be a new road bike for you! Even thoug your R2000 looks like it was just whisked off the showroom floor.

My old road bike which is a year newer looks like it has been run through an acid bath 100 times. My sweat can eat holes in steel plate 1" thick.

I'm just the luckiest fella walkin the planet. :D

georgesnatcher 02-25-04 01:18 AM

wow, yeah that's really cool. my girlfriend is 5'1" and i'm 6'1" so well, somehow we don't ride the same size bikes... actually i did ride her new Epic a fair amount (we bought it for her over Christmas when we were in the US and as she had to be back sooner i had the "job" to use it to make it easier to import the bike as used) with a super-long seatpost and i kept hitting my knees on the bar - duh!

but yeah, if it fits and it's the bike she wants (sounds like it) then yeah!

Judging by the "leave town" -answers there seems to be plenty of male volunteer Forum members. :D (and yes, I voted for "leave town")

Happy anniversary!!

SamDaBikinMan 02-25-04 09:06 AM

Well it looks like most are in agreement that I need to leave town so she can find a better man.

Which incedentally is exactly what would have to happen, while I am still in town there will never be a better man! ;)
