    i love bicycles

    not that anybody on this forum needs another reason to love their bike, nor was anybody unaware of this before... but i'm sort of a newbie bike owner (well, at least a newbie "nice bike" owner). and it just amazes me that any problem i have with my bike, i can search this forum and come up with 3 possible solutions and try them all and have one of them work. with a car, when something goes wrong, you gotta take it to the shop and you're carless for 2 or 3 days, unless you've had significant experience working on cars. with bikes, its clean this, loosen that, lube these... and bam, problem solved. hooray bikes.

    Yep, that's why we all hang here, except for Maelstrom, a2psyklnut and few others that is. They hang here because they have no life….

    Me too!
    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.
