Quantcast

Balls

Hey all,

This thread is from an idea I got from another site. From what I see in the newly formed Mid-Atlantic forum, most all of the posts have been about riding. And I'm super stoked on that. So to take it a step further, I'm starting a "balls" thread. The basis behind this, is to get out from behind your screen name and come out and say who you really are. Level the playing field. It's easy to talk at your computer, but if you put yourself out there...well you can firgure it out.


I'll start:


Dave Kalt

Drinks alot of beer.......

I am usually the one riding the most clapped out ghetto rigged bike on the mountain.

My bike list changes daily depending on which bike I broke on the previous ride.

I use to ride Xc a lot but mostly i just run shuttles and drop trails out of the shed. I do all my riding out of Gambril and the Shed. And i like beer as well. but not rocks to the knee, they make me sad.

Rides:
Demo 8 ( supposidly this brick of a bike is to be used for freeride or DH but it steers like an ocean liner so its going to sit a lot this year)
VP Free (dual Chainring, single crown, light weight set up, this bike does it all, Freeride, Xc, and DH)
Specialized rockhopper (my 8 yr old Xc bike that i rebuilt 3 seasons ago as a light weight Xc race bike, if i can ever put down my VP Free this bike is next in line)

I dont race and I dont ride on the weekends, its agains my religion.

I am pretty sure that I heard that same quote from my old biology professor once he heard I became a chemist. All that has to be done now is the obvious blue balls modeling joke. waka waka waka..

Sadly, I wasn't joking. I'm a molecular modeler and am looking for a job. I'm pretty good at playing with balls, well at least making them move according to Newton's second law. :shocked:

More synthesis based. I'm actually putting in my two weeks Friday to move and do consulting for a microarray lab. It's nice to be able to do what you went to school for. I love chemistry, but was back when they let me blow **** up.
