It was cool hanging with you guys last night... Any one that wants to build a stupid tall bike should hit me up. Message me here and I'll give you my real Email...I'm paranoid about posting it in forums. Who is Red Demartini? He was talking smack about my welding, and saying that I was wasteful for taking bikes out of the trash and putting them back on the street.

I'll second Dirty: The Pirates are an amazing group of people, and I'll miss the regular time with our great Sea Mistress Chimbly.
Good luck to you in Chicago, and may the Windy City give you tailwinds.

See you on the 12th!

Chimbly, sorry I couldn't be there to say "Bis bald!". I was in NY until tonight. I wish you a good start in the new city and I'm looking forward to pillage with you when you are on a mission back in DC.

I think I might have seen you riding a tall bike towards Union Station two weekends ago. Is that possible? That was the first time a saw a real tall bike in action. AWESOME!

Cool.

Spud I am always at City Bikes now (except on Sun.). I'm usually not settled in at home until around 8:00'ish.

So if you want to bring my shirts by the bike shop, cool. Or if you want to come out to dinner with me and Annie some night, even better.

You know my # and where I live.

Just the first bounce or two. Then you just chill out and let the spring do all the work.
