I can't ride, but I will make you all a deal. You bring the beer, I will provide all the pancakes and cheese that one may need on a ride. (note: pancakes and cheese offer good only at my place)

Eh, it finally washed off. I would ride it more but those surly hubs aren't nearly as nice as the Dura Ace on the Langster. What can i say. It will be a bad weather bike. I did ride it on new years. I'll ride it more when i get a new wheel set for it. Also, it has those Kevlar Armadilo's on it. I dread changing them. It has 25s on it right now. Can i just swap down to 23s? Are road tires hub specific? Silyl question, but i don't know.

If the 50mph wind advisory expires at 6 pm like they say it will, I'll make it out and be there around 7:30-45.

yeah ok, hence tink getting the mallets, should i stop by a store and get some whiffle balls or does someone have some handy? maybe that sherwood resident will bring his friend to play acoustial guitar and sing us some Itey music.

on a completely aesthetic front, would this bike look better with red hubs and black rims or red hubs and red rims? (most likely deep profile rims)

and i'm looking forward to hanging with you mannakai,
i'm not sure if you've met me before.
and on that note, who is this daibutsusan73
i wanna chill with you too brother.. haven't had the pleasure yet.

and all you lurkers out there....
i know you're reading this...
now that we're loosing k-dong, we need some no0bs.
come out come out wherever you are.
play

Quote:

i say red hub, white wall V's, and red tires
maybe you could get crazy with some red spokes

either way, i'd have to say that red rims might kill it.
need to see the whole picture here.
the white accents in the frame would be lost.

anyways...

ok, i'll get the whiffle balls. you met mannakai at Asylum the friday night before LateNiteFrostBite. it was a busy night with all the world's most expensive not-so-jumbo slice pizza, Metro drinking and pissing and watching Christian school those yuppy kids in darts...i'm sure you'll recognize her though.

naw, white is the color i'm concealing, its just now that i realize its mostly red and white and pretty much only the components and fork are black. the red hubs are definite though.

I always thought it wasn't a word too. Just something funny to say.
I guess Websters says it is a word, but basically, you are an idiot if you use it.
