    well that one maybe. The photoshopped bike lifting the guardrail was funny, but then the rest of the pics were crap and there was no good profile view of the bike. I always like the "here's my reflectiion of me taking a picture" pics

    The "Seen in Leadville" picture is the same bike, so there's your profile shot. It's kind of amusing that they were both posted on the same day.

    I'm not trying to be an ass but why post this here. FGG has a forum too. Those who may be sending in thier bikes soon may take better pictures if people complain more.

    There are often numerous threads here discussing FGG. If you don't want to read it don't click it. Or am i not allowed to talk about pics that arent posted here?

    You missed what I was saying, probably my fault. My point was that you may have an actual impact of changing future pictures if posted there. That was all, no go unruffle your feathers and enjoy the weekend.

    Maybe Dennis is having a slow day and had to pull from the crappy file.

    San Marco seat? Damn I love those. I just got one, it's super neat. Too slippery though. Really stiff, not sure if it's comfy for long periods, but it's just soooo coooool.

    Ya know, I don't think the filter robot can make that distinction
    Even if it could, it would filter out b!tch in all its uses, I'd think. As we are already on the subject: who thinks that Juvi actually takes the effort to type in all his swearwords? I think he just hits the asterisk button after every third word he types and holds it down awhile

    Yeah. Two qoutes didn't fit into the small space allotted by BF.net. Sorry I may reorganize it somehow, though.
