Hrm, I always miss the drama but I am guessing that White is pissed off because of those very lame (in my opinion) pictures he took of cute girls "riding" a red track bike that he posted. I think he expected to be praised instead of ridiculed for his efforts, welcome to the internet!

Did I hear right? You guys are getting like 20 grand? Congrats!
Hell yeah! We're getting a bunch of new stuff, tensionmeter (yes!), calipers, copule more stands and pretty much anything else we were missing from before.

Are we really going to argue over one measly little centimeter? Yes the Guerciotti is a 54 and my two favourite bikes are 55's (one with a 55 top tube and one with a 56 top tube). Although the "Gurch" is a 54, it has a 55 top tube, so we're talking one centimeter of seatpost difference. Not worth mentioning if you ask me... So, in conclusion I am therefore clearly the rightful rider of the Gardin

I dislike Mr. White's random chicks on bike photos because they are contrived, pointless and totally self indulgent. I think its funny imagining him convincing them to pose for him though... kinda perv stylez

PS. You all may have seen it, but this video entertained me so much. Its just great. Fun for the whole family!

If you didn't already have a sweet vintage ride, you might have had the chance to ride it. Seriously tho....it will be a loaner. Its too small for me and it would be a crime to just hang it up on the wall and not let it be used. One day my friend....one day.

Have any of you guys seen Wonder Showzen? It's this "children's show" on MTV2, and it's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen. Prime example is the "Aunt Flo" cartoon. The link below is for Season 2, Episode 1.. check it out at approx 13:35 in for Aunt Flo.

Yes Mitch. I am so jealous. I'm setting up my work practicum for the summer and wistfully thinking of the bike tour I won't be able to do . Damn, work is over-rated.

And for Mr. White, there are worse fetishes out there. It's just too bad people go stomping off from the forum. It is a forum after all.

And Cycle therapy has a nice white Gardin frame, 57 or 58 according to Mike, for sale. I have no $ again, so it's a no go for me.

Picturing him getting ppl to straddle his ride is kinda funny.
