Hi whatbike,
Congrats to your nice bike!
Glad that it turned out so well. So after all your search was well worth it. Yes, this forum is of great help and yes post pics!

BTW: A suggestion: Please, I would prefer to see the pics and read the story it in the "name your bike" thread. I might be wrong but there is imho the place where all the (new owned) folders should show off first and also there it doesn't get lost for a later search. (And perhaps you like to use period/fullstop and Capital when it is appropriate? While I like to read your postings much, its quite difficult that way)
;-)

WB very pleased the bike arrived and didn't get lost! Also great to hear it is such a good ride.


Since you started the thread post the pics here. Get that camera out! Where are you based by the way?

Noooo we saw them lol! We wanna see the bike in your environment! Want more detailed pics WB!

Just on the offchance I've upgraded my digital camera from a Pansonic Lumix TZ1 to a TZ5. That means I have a very nice 5 million megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom and Leica lens going cheap, Includes 2gb card if interested. It's been superseded by 2 models since so not worth that much and a bargain to be had. PM me if interested.

Aww!

Well at least you got skint getting a great bike! When you get some dosh again and want to nab a cheap well built camera look out on ebay for the older 4 million megapixel Pentax optio S4. Can get one for under £20 and takes great snaps! See:
https://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pentax-Optio-S...3286.m14.l1318

So pleased you got your bike was worried that some corrupt courier had got their hands on it!

Please *** could you punctuate as Somnetash *** said as it's so hard to read and also too may smilies!! Not being a prat! It reads more like SMS text speak!

Do you think, you are better than What Bike?

You change ID's all the time, WB for what bike, DT for Downtube, how about *** MY *** for mulleady

You shorten nicknames, why can't what bike write also shortening punctuation??

I thought WB was Warner Brothers!!


Regards

I don't think i'm better than anybody thankyou and I do use punctuation. Actually I write Downtube in full all the time because it benefits Yan on search engine spiders as per his request to users on this forum.

Most of us abbreviate longer nicks sometimes. I asked WB to separate out some of his sentences that's all. I never believed all my postings were exactly perfect.

Congrats! We WANT Pics! We WANT Pics! We WANT Pics! If you're strapped for cash, you can go buy a disposable camera at your local Tesco or wherever it is you Brits buy cheap disposable stuff. When you have the film processed, they can give you a CD with the images. Cheap and easy.

Agreed. We'd love to see it. You can take better photos!

It's a lovely bike take some pics when you can!

Bet he is out on it right now. Gorgeous weather in the UK. I'm off for a ride myself!

Mulleady, you seem like a nice person; but given what's quoted above, you could possibly consider the tiniest outside chance that you may not be the absolutely most qualified person to give punctuation advice.

Excuse me noteon, there is nothing wrong with my English, puncuation or grammar in general. Perhaps the odd rushed typo or error like most of us. I simply asked WB to separate some of his sentences so it's easier to read. Why start all this cr*p? Please don't patronise me either by telling me I'm a nice person and then proceeding to what you say. I refuse to get drawn into an argument with some of you guys across the pond.

Thankyou and have a nice day!

Then don't start them.

And I did mean that you seem like a nice person. It wasn't patronization. You were worried about what bike? receiving his bicycle. In my book, that's a nice person.

But when you publicly correct someone's failure to separate sentences, and in the very same paragraph, fail to separate two of your own, you have to expect somebody to call you on it.

This smiley isn't mean in a patronizing manner either: Pax.

So much for not posting again, no matter what is posted henceforth. I'm bowing out now, even if you're not.

what bike?, congrats again, and apologies for my part in this detour in your thread. Pics...

If you were sorry why did you detour?

And I don't need someone to tell me if I seem nice or not thanks! I'll let others who know me somewhat be the judge of that.

We are a community here and it doesnt matter where you are from. I think after a while you can tell who is nice and who just wants to hear themselves. Cant we all just get along? feel the love.
