Oh, how witty. Questioning my gender with "Ms.". I also like the Ad Hominem (which is also a fallacy) saying I don't pay for my own gear. All I said was the chain was slack.

In an ass hole-ish way.

I dig the SS. My cousin had one in silver that he wouldn't let me drive until he got it just right. He got it just right and it was stolen out of his driveway the night before I was to drive it. My buddy's wife had one in Brown with the orange stripes. That SS was stolen and recovered three times before they got rid of it. Never got to drive that one, either. So what I guess I'm saying is, can I drive your car?
