DIGAZ: Pictures or it didn't happen. Show us the new bike!

Notices
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

Against a white garage door.
Drive side facing out. Front wheel on the right.
Chain on the big ring.
Etc., etc.

No white garage door? Improvise.

If you can't show us the bike, don't expect any more of the expert and cheerful help we have been providing.

I'll see where it goes; just making a prediction.

Needs proof that it's his bike. Like a receipt.

80 feet away and 6 feet deep.

Probably not going to happen. I've been trying to give the guy the benefit of the doubt, but it is highly likely that he is a banned user that has come back to troll.

So this guy wants to immediately upgrade to DA 9000, mount a ginormous phone on the bars, and wants headlights based on how they look but wants to ride on the sidewalk while wearing "padded shorts/jerseys" underneath street clothes?

If it's a troll, it is so deliciously thorough. Very inventive. I could appreciate that. But I'm afraid we will just be disappointed and find out it is on the up and up.

Yeah, maybe he just saw the movie Premium Rush, and identified more with the Manny character than the Wilee character. He needed a "bike with gears" instead of "fixed gear, steel frame, no brakes."

And here I was quietly hoping for a shot of the lower 1/2 of his body wearing a regular padded bike jersey under his choice of regular pants. Just to put a lot of doubts to rest and prove the naysayers wrong.

Why not start up a thread on your build to show the bike going thru all of its progressions?

I would not at all be surprised if the bike picture he posts is Timtak's. Coincidence? I doubt it.

Good thing I didn't do that. It took me about a year to assemble my last bike. But I had 3 or 4 others to ride in the meantime.

Hey guys, you CANNOT call somebody out like this. It's called harassment.
