I pointed that out. I wish I didn't

I get the distinct impression that not all the mods are on the same 'wave length'....so you'd likely get away with it....anyway, I'm sure they have better things to do than track you down & ban you again....although.......

Nah apparently it happens. I think something along the lines of IP address should be added in here now.

XTR wheelset is around $1000
Phantom have crossmax SL's for $999 (500 less than rrp)

But I figure the XTR's are a lot less common than the Mavics...

From Cycling News :ROFLMAO:
"Androderm patches are useless they fill your body with water and make the legs heavy," he writes. "They will however cause a big stiff painful erection and it lasts for hours. (Me missus loves it)."

Yeah but they're a prebuilt wheelset and are therefore sh”t!

Okay, so what are you going to use these wheels for? Actually instead of one question and one answer per post, how about you give us a complete rundown!

not all the mods see it as a bannable offense to disagree with them, no matter
how strong the argument. Of course if you tell me to piss off I might get a bit
touchy depending on how it was worded.
yah we do IP checks (damn am I giving mod secrets away?) if we suspect someone
is trying to creep back in.
I'm refraining from commenting about the whole Landis thing coz in my
heart of hearts I KNOW he's innocent. I met someone once who knew someone who
once rode a bike in pennsylvania and he would never do such a thing. . . .
For a different spin on it check out the threads in the Serotta Forum, much more
realistic and far less hero worship.

Steve Vai? not bad. Check out Ry Cooder who did almost all of the other guitar
work in Crossroads, has an impressive catalogue of albums (hey what did you think
I was gonna say? I hang out in Cranky & Vintage forum) although some of it is
pretty obscure (tastewise).
I also like Al Di Meola for blazing fingers style guitar, especially his earlier work just
after he left Return to Forever.

531... as for the eyes, I'm surprized that you even remember that particular engagement.

There's a south african guitar slinger Tony Cox who I had the pleasure
of hearing while down there. Simply amazing pyrotechniques, plays mostly
acoustic in a variety of obscure styles. Don't know if it's available outside of
Jo'burg and Durban but if you can get hold of it I highly recommend it.

Eddie? looks like a crack head, and is reportedly doing the soundtrack
for a porno.

Tiger, the wheels will be my everyday hoops and will be subjected to zero road use, 30% firetrail, 70% singletrack. I'm looking for something light, durable and high bling factor!

they are good. got them as an upgrade on the bike when i decided not to go with the carbon fork.

strong, tough, seemingly durable, a little heave (UST) but nice. they also look the shiznit on the bike! only gripe is they are a little " soft" if you use a tyre lever to get the tyres on or off it seems to mark the rim ( leaves a tiny dent) being ust its easy enough not to have to use one anyways.

Apart from Crossmax's Tanya from turramurra replaced her XT's with the bontragers and thought they were superior. If i had my choice it would be : Crossmark, XTR, Bontrager, XT. how much do you weigh? apparantly its not a good idea to be running the XT's or XTR if you are above 80 kilos.

This thread is returned to the forums. It is moved to Foo, since reading through it, it's pretty obvious the majority of the posts are not road cycling related.

As far as what I talked about before, the name calling needs to stop. What you may think is not offensive certainly becomes offensive when used in an angry and belligerent manner. If you can't recognize seppo as an offensive word, recognize at least that when you are upset/angry/belligerent about America or Americans, or whatever is eating away at you, and you use seppo to address us, it is offensive. And that is definitely against the forum guidelines.

Anyway, it's a truce for now, and as long as we agree to disagree, I shouldn't have to return- except to deal with forum guideline violations.

Actually, the NSW contingent race road bikes, track bikes, and MTBs. But due to their geographic location, it makes no sense to venture into the MTB forums. Parts availability and pricing is different down under, and their discussions are usully about local shops and local races.

You actually think I'm going to read your ridiculous thread? My point was, I never saw you before now. So I won't be missing anything if you leave. Won't even notice the difference. It's your choice, its not affecting anyone.
