No problem, whenever is good for you. I'll be in and out all day, but will leave everything on the porch for you. Easy to find, has the big old '54 pickup rotting out front. It's not mine.

like TJ says, wait for it. What's that saying? the habits you have in your 20s catch up with you in your 40s.

EDIT: if you want to gain weight, get a job in a restaurant. not only will you be eating rich crap all the time, you won't have any time to excersise because of the long shifts. worked for me [loosens belt one notch]

thank jebus i don't have a scale or i'd be really paranoid.

keeping with the keith harring / cinelli bike theme, take a look at this:



is it just me or is that a ridiculously long wheelbase?

It just looks that way because there is such a tiny wheel in front.

Well the rear wheel is all the way back in the dropouts. I think if you pushed it forwards the tire would rub the seat tube. Also if you adjusted the frame so that it had a 700c wheel and that 700c wheel was located in the same relative position horizontally, you would have mad toe overlap and very tight wheelbase.
