Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

where's my star?

at the bffgmng i came in second in the alleycat. yay. joe g, our gracious host on these forums pledged a membership upgrade for someone as a prize. that was supposed to be my prize (since they gave all the good stuff to "frist in town" wtf?).

teadoggg and the organizers have told me that they've called and/or emailed joe numerous times over the past THREE MONTHS. the result. . .NO STAR!!!


i need my star. i am calling joe out right now to live up to his promise.

can i hear a "hell yeah!"? (a little support here would help)

msngr,

the owner/admin of the boards (joe) took a multi month
motorcycle tour, I'm guessing he just forgot to mention it
before he left (and returned).

where's my pie?

Did you pay via paypal?

The automated system is not working currently so it needs to be done manually.

There are two methods that work. Via paypal or snail mail.

Paypal
Are you trying to donate but don't have the donate page

Mail
So you want to donate, and you can't/don't want to use Paypal:

Pm me when you have donated and I will upgrade your account.

Thanks

Star? Have you looked on the inward sides of peoples wrists? I'm betting you'll find a few.

msngr had an odd glow around him last night, I think it was the star... or I had too much to drink, but I'm pretty sure it was the star.
