    Spokane, here I come!

    I have to wake up and head to the airport at 4 in the morning. I can't wait! I need a bike asap. My budget isn't what I hoped it would be. I just got a macbook pro (was a need, not a want).

    lets ride!

    You 'needed' a mac book pro? The school you're going to required you purchase that specific computer?

    BTW, you could have bought a Dell and saved maybe $500-$1000. But instead you'll bum rides and parts off of people because you had to have the Macbook. That's nice of you.

    That would be cool, cyco; very nice of B. Some runs can be had on the Yet-eye too, even though it'll priobably be largish and oversprung for him. Want you guys to get a run on it too and tell me what you think.

    Riding shorts and platform pedal shoes will do. If you feel the need, I have three spare sets of armor plus a couple different full face helmets to choose from; oh and a somewhat tatty set of knee-shins.

    yikes. I think he was saying in most cases a mac is more expensive than a dell although the dell will do just about everything if you take care of it. way to stand up for your friend though while he is on a plane somewhere. According to you if you have a dell you are sacrificing your education. I have had the same dell for 8 years and my education seems just fine. Best part about his mac is he can take naughty videos edit them and sell them for money to buy his fancy toy. But what do I know? my education has been sacrificed due to my computer choice.

    He could have bought a Dell. And then another one in a year when the cheap battery overheated his computer & fried the processor. And then another one a year later after hackers easily found their way around a number of computer-slowing virus protectors. And then another one yet again, for a long list of other possible reasons why Dell & Gateway have no place in the computer world.

    Or he can buy a Mac, like I did after having two Dells fail on me in less than a year, & have it run strong after 6 years of shady-website abuse & not a hint of virus protection. If you're going to recommend a MS OS, at LEAST recommend a company with quality parts & hardware put into their computers, like Toshiba or Compaq.

    Honestly, on a forum that stresses quality so much, why would you recommend he buy the 'Next Power X' of computers to get him through college, just so that he can afford a nicer bicycle? That's terrible advice, & I lost any potential respect I could have ever had for you because you're honestly trolling a forum telling kids they should sacrifice their education so they can get nicer toys. You're a ******.
    What the **** are you talking about? I asked him a simple question, if his school required that computer, and he replied that I was annoying. He could have answered honestly, but he chose not to. If you could get your face out of your friend's crotch for a second you would see that.

    So I made an assumption about the cost of his computer. Big deal.

    Get of your high horse Sam, you're looking too much like Johnny up there.

    Here's a fun activity. Reread this entire thread and replace the word Apple with SRAM and the word Dell with Shimano (or 29er / 26" or singlespeed / 9-speed, etc.)

    That's how silly you all look.
