Just stuff yourself in a big box and call the guys in brown to deliver a package to Canada.

I am being shipped out via Air Canada in a week and a half.

Are you angry because you got called a man? I even corrected that poster, but didn't post a pic of you. And I don't care who you are, one degree is freakin' cold. Especially to you NorCal wussies.

I'm not upset with him, how was he supposed to know? Thanks for correcting him though. a gentleman you can be (sometimes).

I just don't get why having a custom ti for the same price as an off the shelf carbon ( ESPECIALLY if it was discuss with fitter/doctor/builder) is the same as getting off the shelf with different size components.

I have my first Final exam today in Physical Anthropology. Sounds hard, but I'm the least worried about that final.

Monday = Latin and Sociology. Ewww.

Today I consult with a law student about how to divorce my ex husband even though I can't locate him, and some other crap. Is there some God of Divorces i can make a sacrifice to?!?

I would love to have DJ as an Xmas present.

A custom Ti frame for the same price as any carbon frame is a bargain. The ride quality and durability can't compare.

Well apparently it "wasn't necessary". I tried other bikes and the LBS's were losing patience trying to fit a bike to me that would allow me to ride pain free. I wasn't even going to argue with the postes. No matter what I was going to say, they figured any bike can be fitted to me. I know other people have back issues but I wasn't going to risk being paralyzed again on a bike with a geometry that doesn't suit my needs.

There is nothing about the fit of your custom that probably couldn't be resolved with some headset spacers or stem length. But by going custom, you get the exact stem length you need for correct handling, without having to compromise by going longer or shorter to fit you to the frame. Does that make sense?

Hi Fooeys! I'm chilling at a coffee shop eating a tasty salad and relishing in the fact that I finally turned in a final paper.

Yes that makes sense but the chainstays were shortened, the top tube was slanted more and the headtube is taller. Plus he put that cute little chain hanger on there as a surprise.

Isn't that a relief turning it in? So much stress.....but then again I was the type to hurry and do things last minute!

Pretty nice compared to the old stomping grounds, from what I hear.

I'm loving it.
