In other news, the state of Illinois is suffering a severe shortage of zip ties, duct tape, and super glue.

In other other news, Pacific Bicycles has contracted two teenage cycling afficiandos to design it's new line of competition downhill and freeride bicycles. The bikes will sold in Nebraska and North and South Dakota due to liability concerns.

a) keep it clean
b) dont use aolese again you have been warned
c) don't insult other users or even groups of users

Kid, its a joke, period. Its looks like one of those fun bikes. Get off your highhorse and take it for what it is. You didn't exactly own a real downhill bike yourself. Don't throw stones in a glass building ...
