dood, that's not even half the truth. I think you need to get rid of, say, 10 of those things.

Yes, it's a conundrum. But, cannot we do both? Must we swab the deck forever, with no respite? Even pirates need a break, every now and again. Besides, we all need a little citrus.
I vote we meet up at the corner @6:45 for the movie,then polo afterwards.

Movie location from the website:
"The Infoshop is located in the basement of the Flemming Center at 1426 9th St on the corner of P St. The nearest metro stop is Mt Vernon Sq on the yellow / green lines."

Also,looks like it's free.

I thought hybrids had pretty slick tires already ...

Dyna, thanks for the offer for the 7200, I'm trying to stay away from suspensions of any kind ... any of the flatbar road bikes (if any have braze-on points) up for sale?

Yep,I'm selling the Absolute. Nice light flat bar road bike with all the proper eyelets. It's even got a really sweet paint job. But it's a 23",which is a little big for me,and prolly way too big for you.

BoO, I like Dave Barry. I bet you don't like Savage Love either. Or Steve Colbert.

And RPC, the CP location is fine. If you tell me your size, i can stop by and take pics of all the bikes your size. And get the good word on prices from friends that work there.

And Baltimore is a fine city. It is full of Punk and goodness. And the Talking Head has Naty Boh. And requires you to go up and down too many stairs to find the rest room. The land of pleasant living. And i am going to be so drunk in the morning. I mean hung over. Maybe drunk too. And my buddy Joe goes, "dude, i have to pee so bad, i have the smallest bladder." And i go, "me too man!!" And he says, "you must be a libra." Well damn if he wasn't right.

And to make this fixed related, i found out my buddy Tommy in bmore rides a fixed. The Hour by Windsor. A nice bike. We are gonna race the Shock Trauma. Go team not very smart and intoxicated.

I forgot how good the Rentals were.

[edit** and tomorrow nights low will be around -4C (24F). Now that is cold. Lets do the movie and try to keep warm. And Odwalla is good. Naked is better.

On a pleasant note, I may be able to hang for an hr tonight before driving out to NGNN. Tink, please call me when you leave work re: polo mallets.

btw: anyone have a spare set of drops or bullhorns? (yes, I need parts) There is a bike that is begging to be riden (for the first time in the US).

thats just not my thing okay

i did however photoshop this little diddy for the PS thread.. but no-one wanted to play

you think it was a little much?

fair nuf -- i wasn't intending to get personal. just poking fun of the number of bikes he has, which i think he alluded to himself, with the smiley face and all. i'll gladly defend that point of view day or night.

for the record, though, i'll sooner listen to him tell me to shush than someone else. and i haven't heard him complain. but enough of this 3rd person sh1t. and, while i'm at it, hell with PC-ness. the interweb is awesome because it's an open forum, moderators be-damn3d.

J5 - SHUSH!

Seriously though,I've got a pretty thick skin,and I caught the joke,so no worries. I also agree about the 3rd party thing,but I give props to BoogerBike for having my back.


Tink: dude,does McFarlane Toys know you're pirating their ideas?
