Congrats dminor

Since most here don't visit the announcement forum I figured I would put a congrats here with dminors faux family.

Congrats dminor, well deserved on the modhood. Enjoy the balancing act, it truly was (and will be) an experience to enjoy. Just by this pick I know brian knows his ****.

Thanks, Maelstrom. I figured by this pick, you'd think Brian had completely lost his marbles.

I guess I haven't had my fill of 14-year-olds. It must be an empty-nester thing - - you wax nostalgic about it until you get a houseful of 'em again.

i knew dminor would be a mod someday since i first read his posts. he's always sincere and never gets into arguments.

and on top of all that, he rips it.

well deserved d.

I heard dminor was known for posting controversial comments on internet message boards. In fact, according to my sources, he incited a major firestorm online that nearly led to revocation of his corporate sponsorships. Is this wild rebel the right guy to moderate such a well researched discourse on mountain biking fundamentals? I think not.

I heard from a buddy who has a brother who knows him and I hear he's a poseur, and inflammatory poster and is full of crap. Uh, no, I've never talked to him myself but my buddy's an expert on full-o'-crap people so I trust what he says so I'll post it here.

He's been around - - we just weren't aware of it. Hope you're back to being a regular DBD. I vote for your trademark olive-colored text though. Does this mean you're actively working over your stable? And are you looking for anything (like, maybe, a Gran Mal? )?

Anyway, good to have you back! Don't worry, I won't let the new role go to my head. They tricked me into it in a moment of weakness.

No Gran for me. I am rebuilding though. Sold the last of my old rides a few moths ago, picked up a '07 Stinky for my all-mountain needs (for those who do not know me I use freeride bikes for my all purpose bikes including epic rides) and a Bianchi Lewis for my road work. Soon I should be getting a Trek Session frame that I will trick out with some choice parts and another Bianchi for my longer road rides. Probably the 928 with Record groupo.

Theres the old color.

Seriously? Is it now a corporation and is the stock being sold to the public yet?

Hey DBD, glad to see you back. I too have taken a hiatus. Should be back on a more regular basis.

Thanks,

I've kinda lost touch with the latest and greatest concerning gear.

Back in school, so priorities shifted a bit!
