Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Xavier will be the new moderator for this forum. Xavier comes from bullteksports and is very knowledgeable (woo, a big word) in the sport of bicycling.

If you see a need for a moderator in this forum, you can find Xaviers email at the top of the road biking forum index, or the webmasters email at the bottom of every page on this site.

Have a good day.

Is Xavier still a moderator? Did he ever have a presence?

As I was reading, I was thinking "this is the guy from Bullteksports who totally jerked me around the last time I tried to get a deal. What the heck is Joe thinking?"

Then I saw the date of the original post.

I'm wondering how to greet him as if it was the past while still considering it's the present.

Hello Xavier, I will hope that you will have had stuck around for a while. I will hope that you will have been a good mod.

Hey Chopper, that has GOT to be one of THE funniest movie scenes of all time, and Holy Grail is definitely my favourite movie of all time.

Thanks for the chuckle.

Cheers,

Brian
