Besides myself, you are the third person I've ever met who knows who Toots and The Maytals are. I like you more every time you post.

She's my best friend in the whole world.

I feel the same way about my wife.

What was your first concert?

lolwut. i would have to try to get that done, they are pretty well known hell even people who think Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds rock have at least HEARD of them.

jimmytango 09-19-11 07:41 PM

Yeah, I'm not sure who Tim Reynolds is, but I'll put it this way: I went and saw Toots opening for Matisyahu a while back. During Toots's set, most of the crowd was wondering aloud who they were.

My first experience with live music was the Bad Brains at the Channel in Boston. The year was 1985 and I was 12 years old. It very literally changed my life.

I may end up aborting the mission, as it will end up being the exact same bike as my 725 with a couple of slightly wider tubes.

evilcryalotmore 09-19-11 08:52 PM

damn it scrod. Scraper bike?

Dannihilator 09-19-11 08:53 PM

Dear scrod,

Should i listen to punk or metal tonight?

Scrodzilla 09-19-11 08:55 PM

That depends on what you'll be doing.

Squirrelli 09-19-11 08:55 PM

Post-metalcore-surf-punk-revival for the win.

Getting ready for sprint work tomorrow.

Scrodzilla 09-19-11 08:59 PM

That's easy. Listen to Darkthrone circa 1992-94.

Sherblock 09-19-11 09:47 PM

On the Lizard Skins slippage... I've had the very same problem. I taped them up, the tape slid on the flats (of bullhorns), pretty close to the corner. Had to undo tape, which ruined a lot of it, so now have messed up bars. I'll probably try Skins again, but if the second experience is anything like the first I'm going back to Fizik.

I was just looking at those! But will they be worth the $150 for two sets (me and the miss)?

Was it the rain jdgesus?

[QUOTE=Scrodzilla;13246210] Pro tip: get yourself a 2" bolt with the same threads as a standard crank arm bolt and thread it into your spindle (through the BB tool) to keep it from falling off while you're installing/removing.


GENIUS.
