What test? If you can identify a stop sign in three tries or less and come up with the money you're in. (They usually let the stop sign question slide though)

The stop signs ringed in white are optional on two wheels after sundown right?

Some nice deals on bikes, but I found the prices to be high to begin with. That being said I walked out with 2 v-brake levers, grips, socks and gloves for $32. Hideous looking red white and blue gloves, but marked down to $3.99 from $30, any colour is fine by me.

Hideous IS the new cool. Although trying to be cool is not cool.

Not a bad deal for a tall person, although I think suprises are at the lower end of the range and the paintjob is freaking terrible.

That paint with my gloves and white rims would cause blindness.
