Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

where's my star?

where's my star?

at the bffgmng i came in second in the alleycat. yay. joe g, our gracious host on these forums pledged a membership upgrade for someone as a prize. that was supposed to be my prize (since they gave all the good stuff to "frist in town" wtf?).

teadoggg and the organizers have told me that they've called and/or emailed joe numerous times over the past THREE MONTHS. the result. . .NO STAR!!!


i need my star. i am calling joe out right now to live up to his promise.

can i hear a "hell yeah!"? (a little support here would help)

msngr,

the owner/admin of the boards (joe) took a multi month
motorcycle tour, I'm guessing he just forgot to mention it
before he left (and returned).

where's my pie?

Did you pay via paypal?

The automated system is not working currently so it needs to be done manually.

Damn, I've been trying to actually pay for my star for a couple weeks now and the stupid donate page is always broken. Can't the third place guy in that alleycat even *pay* for his star???

There are two methods that work. Via paypal or snail mail.

Paypal
