    Dude I'm sorry. I hope you can get past this wretched day....

    Doohickie, I do believe I have your bike in my sig. Also, your SR Laprade melt forged seatpost, NOS for the bargain price of $25!

    EDIT: NM, I thought you were another dave from FW.

    One of their friends was feeling down and they wanted to cheer him up, perhaps?

    He never really said he got a flat tire, guys. He just said it "blew." Maybe "back tire" is a nickname for a close companion of his?

    I know my back tire is a close companion.

    Sorry man, there's a guy from FW named Dave who was the guy who had one of my frames initially imported. Went to a second owner, and then to me. I bought a seatpost from the guy and came full circle. Your user name thought you may have been him...

    You should probably end it all now, before it happens again.
