    How the hell can you say back in the day was 4 years ago. Another example of a phrase that needs to die.

    (in an old mans voice) Back in 2002 our bikes had to ride on the ground. No, no children. Sit down I'm not lying this time...

    4 years is now "back in the day"? Dang. I didn't even think that my ride qualified for "back in the day" status at almost 17 years old.

    As opposed to those other bike companies that are simply pleased with a good hearty handshake and a birthday card.

    naw man me 19. Plus its just a phrase i like to use. u like it when sum1 poke fun at a phrase you like? I actually don't care cuz its just funny to argue ova funny little things like a phrase you think is wrongly used. Dats why we have opinions and i aint knockin yurs but in actually i agree i used it wrong but who cares ehhh ehhh? (lol - now im canadian)
    plus what i really meant was the good old times of the 60's -80's things. Now we all know those bikes back then will last longer than these bikes today will. quality back in the day.
    the pista had better things on it then than it does now. quality (ex; mavic rims, wellgo(but these are kinda cheap, i know but come on... its clipless on a moderate priced frame... can't find that too often)

    Many people in this thread need to re-calibrate their sarcasm detectors.

    OK, I'll try my best to solve this riddle.

    No man, I'm 19 years old. Also, it is just a phrase that I like to use. Do you like it when somebody pokes fun at a phrase you like? I actually don't care because it is just funny to argue over funny little things like a phrase you think is used improperly. Thats why we have opinions, and I'm not knocking your opinion, but in actuality, I agree I used it wrong but who cares? Eh? Eh? ([laughing out loud]Now I am Canadian)
    Anyhow, what I really meant is that the good old times of the 1960s through the 1980s things*. Now we all know the bikes back then will last longer than the bikes today will. Things were quality back in the day.
    The Pista had better components on it then than it does now. Quality (ex: Mavic rims, Wellgo(yes, they are cheap, but come on, its clipless on a moderately priced frame ... you don't find that very often))

    *I can't make any sense of this. Also, the years listed are before this person was born.

    Thank you for the translation. I know it had to be painful reading that claptrap disguised as language.

    I may not always use capitalization, but there is no excuse for making a language harder to understand.
