I'm bored.

It's been too boring here lately. The only saving grace recently was that kama sutra thread that has unfortunately died out.

So I thought I'd share that the one thing Larry@MtnHighCyclery and I have been waiting on to complete my new Flux build finally arrived. You see Blackspire just came with some chainrings that are XTR (960) compatible. They finally got them out to their dealers and Larry got his order in, which means he's shipped the balance of the parts I needed to complete my bike. Yay!

I should get the package by the end of the week which means that the following weekend I'd have built up the bike.

Why don't you try the soulmate calculator above and let us know how it comes out.

In case you don't see it for whatever reason: "The Soulmate Calculator - You Can Calculate The Exact Name Of Your Soulmate, Try It Now! www.SoulmateCalculator.com"

I think you got your windows/tabs mixed up. This isn't Love Advice Forums.

Nope. Right next to the BikeForums banner is the Soul mate calculator. Don't know why, but it's there for your amusement if you so desire.

Ah, okay I understand. People who pay for the red star lifetime membership are not subjected to the various ads. We get a clean version of bikeforums.

Meh. Someone in foo anonymously bought me a red star. So I don't need to worry about ads, and it didn't cost me anything

Is this the star that someone was trying to get transferred away?

Meanwhile, give me some ammo to use on my kid who is dead set on a carbon seat post... such a problem child! He was using a EC70 for the past few years, but he's bigger now, and I just don't think it's a good idea for a 160 lb rider. Am i wrong?
