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

Justin,

Just out of personal curiosity, why don't you capitalize your sentences? I see that you use punctuation, mostly, but why no capitalization?

Because his shift key was sticking on occasion, and he tried to fix it with a screw driver and small hammer, and for some reason it won't work at all any more......

But I hear if you mix mineral sprits with motor oil you can lube up pretty much anything!

he doesn't capitalise because the shift key doesn't work in linux.

On a side note, and since this thread can only get more weirder, you say you're doing a tri. I read in another forum that triathletes pee and poop themselves. Do you plan on doing that or have you worked out a game plan?

*legit thread here.

Is this after you just took it back for the chain/cassette problem or the last time he fixed it?

You know when I posted what I posted I wanted to get the thread off to a good morning. I really wasn't expecting this kind of showing. I'm touched guys, truly. Although I'm rather disappointed the OP hasn't shown up and responded.
