Hi Mark, it's always good to hear that someone's been finding useful information (and probably some hilarious good stories) when they've visited BF.

So what's your SS? And what plans do you have for the FG?


Welcome to BF!

ss and fixed gear

east hill,
thasnks for the welcome, my ss is a marin mtn frame with a generic shock, single disac brake on the front. the fixie is a old lambert frame, a kenisis aluminum fork, cinelli alter stem, and some mtn riser bars with a built in crossbar, looks pretty cool to me so far. i am having some set backs due to the proprietary bottom bracket found only on the lamberts and the viscounts, but i will sort that out!

thanks,
scooterchef

Did you say Viscounts? Let's see a photo of the Viscount...

The menu for your restaurant sounds delicious. I especially like the looks of the quesadillas menu .

What kind of scooter do you own? I got a Buddy 125 last summer and it is my favorite vehicle I've ever owned, (I like scooters better than motorcycles, all in all,) and the gas mileage doesn't hurt.

Do you have an account with any of the photo hosting sites? If you have an account, then you don't have to worry about resizing photos...

There you go!

Instead of using the direct link, or the e-mail and IM link, use the IMG link.

That way you don't have to resize the photos so small.
