    Even better... find a space queen named Willow with a LARGE trust fund.

    I wouldn't say that too loudly or Haagen Das will want to to show you his Glockenspiel.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    DON'T GET ME STARTED ABOUT MY ALL-TIME WORST BIKE PURCHASE!!!!

    The "guilty" bike: A Mongoose "Pro" "Crossway 350" (2000).

    To put it mildly: This flaming piece of cycling GUANO is the WORST piece of cycle s*it the planet has EVER SEEN!!

    Even HUFFY couldn't do worse!!!

    The thing began by handling like flaming dog dung with the original POS suspension fork !!
    I replaced it with a rigid fork: It STILL handles like pony plop!! (P-U!!) It weighs a TON...the components are about as bottom- of-the- barrel as would ever darken a LBS's door...the original Cheng Sh*t...excuse me, Cheng SHIN... tires failed early (The front one had a defective bead. It slipped, causing a blowout after only 107 miles!! The tire was so damaged, it could not be re-used!!) The stock saddle is cheaply-made BUTT-TORTURE...I could go on-and-on...

    It's SO BAD, in fact , I wouldn't give it away to my worst enemy!! MY LBS DOESN'T CARRY THIS BRAND ANYMORE, EVEN!!

    Wonder why???
    A bad day on the bike is better than a good day at work!!

    Any bike under the umbrella of Pacific Cycle is not worth owning. It's Walmart stuff. That's why I stated in a previous post "pre-Pacific Cycle buyout of GT" as GT bikes were once a very innovative companay. Then the founder died and they were bought by Schwinn and blah blah blah.

    The moral of the story is don't buy anything from Pacific Cycles as it will be a peice of scheiße.

    No, you must come to terms with your bike and break it in.

    right now it dosent respect you, it sees you as weak, and powerless.

    Take it on a long hard ride, and make some adjustments. You must break the will of your bike, and then it will then respect you. Once there is respect, then it will comply.

    There must be trust, with out trust it will just push you away.

    kinda like teenagers......
