    He's passing himself through the main triangle. Contortionist and all that.

    That's my guess.

    19th century comic artist by the name Martin Archer. His comic was called the Daze of our lives, i guess he can be compared to the modern day Farside.

    Tell them to call the shipping company to change it to a triple rush job and you need to ride your bike ASAP. You should have called them first then tell us after you did that part.

    the 25th is only 5 days from today, what are you going to atrophy or something?? go to your mom's broom closet, retrieve a broom. cut the handle to appropriate length and mill to appropriate diameter. you've now got a seatpost. go to your mom's couch and rip out the stuffing. wad into "flite" shape and wrap with duct tape, simultaneously securing to "seatpost". you've now got a saddle. it'll be "urban" and "tough". you'll be "keeping it real" and "representing". now ride to starbucks and pose. couple days of this and it will be the 25th and you'll once again be just another guy with a bike and a seatpost not made of wood.

    Not uncommon. It happens all the time. I KNOW they will send it ground and insist they send it 2 day. I piss and moan and complain and it usually happens 2nd day. I have learned to not tell anyone that their bike has arrived, until I open the box and inventory everything and inspect it. I have called customers and told em' that their new steed has arrived and It would be ready next day, only to have to call em' and say that a part was missing or defective.

    Always insist on 2nd day when its their fault. If you don't b#@!h the will send it as cheaply as they can.

    When my Van Dessel was delayed a few years back they included
    two water bottles and two nice Sicor saddle bags for free.
    "We are few now, but one day we will rule." That's what one of my fixies whispered as I walked by. I nodded in agreement, and thanked it for not waking the others.

    If anyone ever says 'it will be ready tomorrow', you can immediately assume that it won't be!
