    Welcome home.

    Bikes is still bikes. Except N8's it seems capable of warping space and time.

    Well,
    N8 is now a Democrat and is in love with Cindy Sheehan.
    Narlus changed his mind and wants a huge 3 car garage on the front of his house.
    Scared****les now likes to wear really long NBA style shorts while watching Skinimax on his HD TV.
    DRB swore off alcohol and now loves MMike inappropriately.
    Dhgirlie quit posting (this one is for real. :( )

    Oh, you guys forgot to mention that both Trek and Gary Fisher now have REAL freeride bikes. Wait, or is that black diamond bikes? Now that I think of it, didn't Gary Fisher invent freeriding?????

    Welcome Back!

    I think my bike change total was about 4 over the last five months if you include road and mountain.

    I did get on my bike last night after I did a quick tightening of all the bolts and discovered that I need new brakes. Other than that I'm ready to go and start up where I left off. I was sorry to hear about N8, I held out some hope for him.
