Fred is buying a powertap

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

I was about to remind you to change your sig, then realized you hadn't bought it yet.

There is an Ebay jinx, you know. And you just stepped in with both feet!

Sounds like a good deal. If you're bidding, why would you post this? (aren't you inviting other potential buyers to bid against you?)

This went over everyone's head.

A guy named "fred" asked the seller a question.

(there is nothing special about the "dealness" of this auction)
