But bottom line is that the OP blatantly introduced politics into it and I am not down with that.
Not reading it isnít an option once I have already read it.
Be careful though. According to the next POTUS, using emojis is immature
this seems more fun than politics based on the replies.....and you seem to be the only one with a concern......Chill please

if it goes to real politics the mods will take care of it

He's not the only one.
And announcing a political run is pretty much politics no matter the response.

If Johnny has 12 really great mint C&V bikes he restored and loves and Billy has no bike, how many bikes will you redistribute from Johnny over to Billy?

No idea about your Millstone, mine is more or less part of my surname. Kinda translates as "miller", or "from the mill". Grinding things down? Not really, no . Still have sore muscles from last Sunday's marathon. I wasnt the one grinding, the course was (espescially after 37 KMs).

Not bitter, too . Just curious and enjoying the thread. I'd rather call myself naive-realistic. Or realistically naive....


Oh, and England is indeed nice. We'll see if we want to keep them in the EU or not though . But I dont want to make this thread too political, so see this as a kind of tongue-in-cheek comment.

Carry on, it's here all just about gears, chains and cogs anyways.

My official platform calls for bringing back bar-cons, and promoting friction... friction shifters, that is. And establishing inclusive policies towards alternative drive-trains. The Alenax crowd might just give enough support to help me build a winning coalition.

Any thoughts on Hinault being defense secretary?
I'm in full support of your entire policy. Hinault could have used his knees more, he'll need a bit of practice before I could give him the job. Since it's primarily a military function, he'll need to sharpen up his self-defense skills. Offense is okay, but as we've all heard, the best offense is a good defense. You know that Hinault is a Frenchman, right? There'd be all kinds of back-door things needed to get him in as a US Citizen so he could take the job in the first place. Too much trouble, I'll pass on him. Lance, however, IS a US citizen.....let me think about this one, maybe we can work something out.

I'd take Bernard Hinault over Lance Armstrong in a fight. He has a history...

P3 guy eh? Nice work if you can get it. I was a SWO - we’d tell the ladies we flew P-250’s. That’s a portable gasoline powered pump for those that don’t know.

Hmmm Peugeots listed as your bikes. Gonna have to get some American steel in there. John Kerry rides a Serotta.

Sounds like I've been a member of this political party since I joined C&V.

Wait...27" wheels? Gotta make a concession to 700C in there. These are modern times, after all

(But none of that 650B stuff. Leave that to the Indepeterson Party.)
