Great point BG. He's becoming more grouchy over time, with the lack of sun and wheels beneath his... um... body.

Me? Grouchy? Never!

I don't know nearly enough about Jan Heine to have an opinion, other than that I thought those cranks they released looked schweet. I just know he's in that controversial category.

I actually really dig many of the VO products.

Sure there are others, but with just that threesome, it it shouldn't be a problem taking up 100 pages or more. -In fact we're at risk of sucking all the bandwidth out of Bikeforums!

Watch a couple documentaries and you won't want them anymore anyway. I think they actually put Upton Sinclair's remains in those things.

I have a strict policy about food ingredients; I DON'T WANT TO KNOW. Ignorance is bliss.

My scale disagrees.

Kurt Vonnegut is 15% leaner than Upton Sinclair.
