Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

By by the way, I remember seeing comments Ribble R872 frame was similar to one of workswell frames but I can’t remember which.

ouch! I did a similar thing with a guitar neck I was building, in my search for excellence, somehow I carved it too thin and ruined a perfectly fine piece. Out of frustration and anger with myself I broke the thing in two and chucked it in the discarded wood pieces. Only to find out I had a negative offset on the calipers I was measuring the neck’s thickness with.

My brother had a few Novas from that era. Drove one of them across country (twice) in the 90s. His had the 250ci straight six with the Powerglide transmission. Bullet proof.

Internal nipples are the worst.

Alright then we’ll play this out in public since you choose to publicly make false allegations.

Nobody on staff knows what you’re talking about, THIS is part of the 41 and you’re here, aren’t you? If you thought you were banned why didn’t you reach out to the staff and inquire why? And let’s not pretend you don’t know what happens during a ban, you’ve been banned before (which you also made sure the entire forum was aware of) so you should have clearly known you were not banned this time.

Shall we continue this conversation in public or shall we take it to the private messages? Your choice.

Slightly excessive. Athough well done on upselling to him.
