UPS....Huh?????

So I'm chillin at home with my kids getting girlscout's bike ready for his first DH race on Sat. The UPS guy pulls into my drive and I'm thinking he's lost 'cuz I haven't ordered anything. He hands me a box and drives away.I see it's from Re:Cycles,I open it and I see a new set of skins. Maxxis Minion R and Highroller front . When Gastro and crew were up last weekend Re:cycles owner Merritt slashed a sidewall on a tire so I gave him one of my many spares and thought nothing more of it( riding buds you know). I guess he sent them becuse I helped him out,not necessary but very cool of him. I don't know how he knows my adress or thats the tire combo I like but big props to him. Heck were just friends if i was riding in his neck of the woods he and Gastro would take care of me fer sure. Re:Cycles rules!!!!!!!!
A pic of my new skins..........

Actually, my camera is pretty crappy. Yours just is really crappy, and I can only hope by the time I'm your age to be blessed enough to be able to afford a decent bike. Until then, I'll ride my bike as much as I'd like, not really caring about what brand name my parts are.

Well put...and I agree...good cameras are for those who get paid to take pics ...good bikes are for those who like to supplement their romantic interests

Well, it will take pretty good pics but as long as I can annoy some folks with grainy shots why ruin a good thing?

Yup, a comment I've made on a forum is going to have tons of bearing on if "I get free stuff from cool people". Damn hairy sasquatches.
