    Hey All,

    As you know, MMike is moving the Family back to where he came from. Maybe the mountains aren't as tall; maybe the riding isn't as crazy; maybe the snow doesn't fall as deep; maybe the roads aren't as smooth; maybe the grocery stores don't have the same variety; maybe the cable TV doesn't offer comedy central; maybe the gas is more expensive; maybe parts for his twisted up bike aren't as readily available, the list goes on....

    BUT, it is the place where he is from and we welcome him back. Back will be the days of not wanting to mow the lawn; of scraping down the icy slopes of the local hills; of not wanting to shovel the driveway; speaking french to the guy in the depanneur or whatever; etc...

    But who to ride with? Where is the posse?

    So for the sake of MMike's sanity, I think the entire DHing community needs to pull together and show him your support by giving me a DH bike. For a dollar. You owe it to yourselves to do something good, don't you think?

    Come on now... show you care.

    Persuasively yours,

    -CChris

    No no no! I`m just opening an avenue through which people can do good in this harsh world we live in and feel good about themselves. You know...warm cockles and the like...

    Like this morning, I helped an old lady across the street. She put up a bit of a struggle, but I got her across. She was a pistol that one!!

    You will be buying you own damned bike.

    I begged you to buy Spomer's iron horse. The deal of a life time. But no.

    So you lose.

    I don't need you anyway. Screw you. I've got zedro and Transcend.

    Oh and you need you pick me up at the airport.

    Where is the love?...

    I just need to beef up my Trek a little. Maybe put some dirt tires on it, put on some new brake shoes, hairspray on the rims...

    Be carefull....

    You are MMikes brother

    You are asking for a DH bike from us for $1

    I wouldn't ride any DH bike bought for a Dollar sold to MMikes brother.

    To many things can go wrong with that scenario. :D Guilty by association and all.

    He'll be fine on his Trek 820 Antelope. He'll be the envy of everyone at bromont with his Biopace cranks, Tioga T-bone stem, threaded headset, DEORE SIS thumb shifters, toe baskets, and 6 speed cassette....

    Oh and Mom said you aren't going climing on Sunday so you'll be picking us up? Bring Dad's Jeep. There's no way everything will fit in the 3. We have to strap Emily's car seat in too....

    Those are Deore II shifters and XTII brake levers I`ll have you know... Better put the Farmer John and Stump Jumper back on.

    And yes, I`ll get the Jeep. The 3 does hold quite a bit though...

    As for the $1 bike, I`m flexible...how bout $US 1.00 and a Laser? (sailboat kind, not the 'set on stun' kind...I know that would be a Phaser (z?) WHAT-EVER!)

    Oh lord...I can't IMAGINE the beat-down Brenda would give you... I mean you know what she's like normally. Now try sleep-deprived and stressed out beyond anything any of us have ever known..... And then she would kill me. So I guess she and Emily could just move in with Lynn.....

    In all seriousness....

    For the Canadians out there, what would one say is the minimum that it would cost to get set up with a bike that wouldn`t suck. I've ridden a Balfa BB7, my bros Yeti, my bros old GT and a Kona Joyride at Whistler.

    The Joyride was an awesome bike, but maybe that was more a function of the terrain than the bike itself.

    So?...

    You're talking used or brand new?

    Starting at $2k in the use you get a decent bike... and I heard Mike is a pretty good wrench so you should be fine! ;)

    I suppose used is the way to go. So 2K, eh? I'm normally pretty easy on bikes so hopefully I can keep the thing running. Aren't discs like $80 a piece?

    Those ads are all in some weird jibberish. Why don't they post in English?

    (After 6 years of being the canadian pain in the ass in the US, I need to start acting like the "americanized canadian" pain in the ass for back home)

    Jeez. There are tons of bikes for sale! How much is a BB7 new? People want $3,800 for a used one.

    Necrothread

    It's Emily's birthday today. She's now 7. I did a search to see if I could find her "birth announcement thread". But it looks like it was a victim of the great thread purge of 2004.

    This is the earliest one that makes reference to her........started by Da Peach's alter ego.

    So all that to say....Happy Birthday to Emily

    I think I just forgot I had it.

    It was pretty clever though, eh?

    Oh, and yes, happy BDay to Emily. I'll call after lunch!

    I hate that guy. Glad he doesn't post here anymore.
