My thinking is to put his shoulder joint in line with the head tube, still behind the fork so stability should still be good. Either a forward seat post or merely pushing the seat forward. Seems a bit back for TT'n IMHO. Then he won't seem as stretched out in the front, and steering will improve. the knee seems to be a couple inches behind the ball of the foot so moving the butt forward will put the knee right over the ball of the foot from the looks of it. Flat back of right or down for TT?

can I be the first one to say that I think TT bikes are the coolest things EVAH! Have a look at the BMC Time Machine, or Look's new TT bike. They are sooo badass it's unreal. And I still have a (very) soft spot for Cervelo P3's. Yummy Canuck goodness

Yes thinly sliced and fried Spam is enjoyed as bacon with, as you've seen Pandisal, or the standard eggs and rice.
I myself enjoy the bread toasted with butter and that's it.

Worst (novelty-bad) meal I've ever made:

- Twinkie
- spray cheese
- hotdog weener

1. Suck filling out of Twinkie (that's dessert).
2. Stuff weener in Twinkie, nuke.
3. Apply spray cheese.
4. Dig in.

I don't know who to feel more sorry for. You, or us the readers.

I was going to make lunch, but now I'm not hungry.

When I was in Oman over new years and on our day of 4 wheeling we had some pretty terrible sandwiches... ugh... let me see if I can remember what was in them:

'wonder' style bread- Light as air, tasteless and falling-to-peices
Chunk Tuna with a very odd colour
Sardines in tomato paste
pickles
La Vache qui Rite style cheese.

We had no cutlery so we just had to kind of make a pile and squeeze it between the peices of bread, which would then crumble in with the ingredients.


urgh... I ate like 3. We had bought a ton of pita and hummous but we left them at the hotel by mistake.

We had sesame snaps for dessert, but unlike our sesame snaps which are 4 little snaps, these ones were just one big snap, with not that much sesame and lots of sugar. So every bite pretty much removed a filling. Hooray!

Oman is probably the only place you will find a Sega Mega Drive new in stores and in 2004 packaging. I was so close to buying it!

If you want old skool video game stuff head to Indonesia and Thailand. Its nuts at the markets there with stuff brand new in packages and never touched. I almost had to grab a turbografix 16 and a jaguar but maintained control.

If I'd seen a game gear I would have bought it and it would have caught fire already (like my previous two game gears), but since I was travelling 'carry-on only' I didn't have room to shove an antiquated consoles in there. Maybe next time...

Turboexpress was AWESOME. Unfortunately mine died years ago but I would buy one again so quick it would make the head spin.

Wow I didn't think anyone knew about that thing! It was way more rare than the console. I have one and I still have the box! It is not for sale. It is so awesome. I have Turbo Graffix 16 too. The games are so weird in the best possible way. A caveman with a giant head that walks around headbutting things (Bonk's Adventure/Revenge)? A mole with a giant foot that walks around kicking things (Impossimole)? World Sports Baseball is still my favourite baseball video game gameplay wise. You used to be able to plug in up to 5 controllers for some games which was super awesome. Unfortuneately I think I have only one reliable controller. Otherwise I'd organize a tournament. I have to go to my parents' house and dig that thing out.
