That's nuts. What components do you have to use to get that kind of weight? Are we talking aluminum cassettes and friction shifters? What were the wheels like?

Stock Dure-Ace shifter's derailleurs cassette and chain. carbon crank, post saddle, bars. Zipp carbon tubies on Classic hubs, TI spokes with Tufo's. He is still working on it but he is gonna get it under 12. He rides it at least 500 km's a week too so not a "Sunday Rider".

a ****ing j-brone named adam owes me money.. i am a very patient person, but taking four months to pay me $230 when originally he said he'd pay me in two weeks is just not sitting with me.

i have known the guy for.. 6 years... wtf.

i know this has no bike relation, well actually the other week he got one of my other friends to call me up at work and ask me for prices on rear wheels and cassettes, is he so scared that he can't even talk to me directly?

this is what i wrote him just a few minutes ago... and if he doesn't respond i don't know what to do, does he expect me to track him down? argggggghhhhh cheeseeeebugaaaaa



seriously adam what the **** is going on? you are really starting to piss me off.. are you just expecting me to forget about the whole thing? you owe me money, and i'm pretty sure that you STILL don't have any for me, but how about you prove me wrong. your promises mean nothing, you don't even make any effort to contact me in any way, how hard is it? use someone's phone, click respond instead of trash when I send you a message... don't act like I have been harassing you with emails day after day beacuse that is simply not true. since we actually talked and you told me that your debt to me was "the next on your list to be paid off" it has been three weeks. so where do we stand? it's not my problem that you didn't have the ****ing discipline to put aside, what would it be? $50 a month, up until now and have actually paid me off. I gave you an ipod and trusted that you would pay me for it, seems like i made a wrong decision, you are just making it harder for yourself. i know things have been hard.. whatever, but i have debts to pay too. make some sacrifices, get the money.

The bump lock thingy has me a little concerned. I'm just paranoid but it renders the padlock super useless. I'm still using the stock molly lock that came with it but i'm sure the american locks are vulnerable as well.
