    No worries bro. I already had dibs so he would not have sold it out from under me.
    Picked it up at 7... made dinner after I got home and then put it together over a tall boi.
    Nitto b123's and a drop stem. Suntour cranks. formula/velocity wheels.reload top tube pad.
    If you come to the alley cat tomorrow you'll see it.

    "1. mertonize
    To preheat a cup or mug with hot water allowing the preferred beverage to remain hotter.
    I mertonized the coffee cups before pouring the coffee so that the coffee will be hotter."

    I honestly don't get what you're saying.

    When I am at work I bring my bike inside.
    Usually otherwise I am just in the bar etc.... and nobody would ****s with it.. but I would not leave it on there for more than an hour or so unsupervised.

    Hmm... My experience with Craigslist is a little different I guess. I sold some moustache bars on there a while back and had so many people flake on me that I finally had to explain to people that I couldn't hold them for anyone and that the first person to actually show up at my place with cash in hand would get them. It's probably a little easier getting ride of a $35 frame with horizontal drops in this town though.

    I don't think I'm going to the alleycat tomorrow. If the GF was working I might, but I know she doesn't want to ride in this crap and to be honest I'm pretty sick of it myself. I will probably not be able to resist taking my bike for a lil' spin after my Craigslist King headset goes in tomorrow. It has been sitting here taunting me long enough.
