i think they are, maybe just during the day though. i'm not sure i can monday because i'm getting fitted for a kilt. i know it sounds like a made up excuse but's true; my friend's getting married and he wants us to wear kilts.

i may be able to if it's early in the morning, but anyway, you know where the place is.

The Fuji is all built up now and it rides beautifully and is very sexy, I'll take pics when I can get my hands on a camera.

Anyone up for a CV tonight?

Edit: Does anyone have a non set-back 27.2 seatpost and is willing to sell it?

I have a few small poly tarps to give away (probably two). These are handy to leave as is or cut into smaller pieces to put under your bike if you work on it at home, to spare your 500 year old Mashad rug. I have one monster orange heavy duty one that someone will have to get by seducing me.

Bump... okay all you lurkers... pony up. Yes you, the lurker who floats through, wondering why this thread is so friggin' long. You marvel at our awesomeness, trying to get up the nerve to post but never do. Well, nows your chance to make your mark in history. Look at the pledge pages for eyefloater and somnabulent and give, give, give.

I know not everyone is flush but every little bit helps. I dropped $100 bones each, mostly cause eyefloater promised to clean my Ciocc with a toothbrush for a month, but I challenge everyone here to drop $20 or more on these guys. Split it between them or just empty your pockets and give what you can. Even the price of a beer will help, like you really need it you chubby walrus. Apart from being able to hold it over their heads for the rest of their lives, you're supporting a good cause. Chances are someone you know or you yourself may be influenced by the effects of this deadly disease.

So pony up, buttercup. For the half the price of a new jersey, a couple of beers, or a massage (sans happy ending) from operator, you can make a difference, feel good about yourself, and know these boys are going to earn every red cent as they gftg.

Do it. You know you want to...

That was me, sorry. I'll bring a pair of thongs next time. I wear sandals so I was barefoot and should have just put the cycling sandals outside. Boo for me.

I have an old single bolt 27.2 you can have, but it isn't zero setback. Looks to be about a cm.

I just saw one Jeremy "darkmother" whiz by me on a sidestreet right around the corner from my house. I yelled out, but I got no reaction... I guess headphones were in use as usual.
