    Smile Poll: should I bring Warp's bike to Mexico

    So what do you think? I mean, If I do it, the Titus clan will become more stronger and more arrogant. And we wouldn't want Warp to become a poser or a bling whore.

    So, what should I do????

    WTF???!!!!

    My bike ain't be no bling!!! Can a bike be bling with Deore hubs and no-name rims?? huh?

    Damn... those Turners Homers are worst than I thought.

    You are asking everyone if should you bring the freaking frame home. There's another so called "blingotraficante" who's smuggling no bling. WTF?? What's up with you, guys?

    I don't even wanna know what would it happen if there would be like a 1000 Homers... damn....

    Did I wrote that??

    Nevermind... Mada, please bing the thing home. Actually, I have to confess I will sell the thing off... yeah. I realized it's too much bling for me. Just bring the thing and I will dispose it properly.

    Censorship!!!! You know I'm kidding, your bike should be here on Monday, unless I get arrested for bike smuggling!

    Seriously: you are not going to keep it?

    BTW... UPS says there's a truck right now going around Houston with my frame's box. Should be delivered today as well as the parts from Larry. Frame in box is 18 pounds and parts from Larry are 8 pounds. That leaves you with another 48 kg of free franchise on the plane. (Your baby doesn't pay a ticket, so no franchise for him... or does he has some?? I don't remember from the last time I travelled with mine on a plane).

    They can only arrest you if you smuggle a complete bike.... but you don't have enough parts with you to assemble a complete bike. It's still "bike parts"
    Warp.. wrong on this.... if it's a complete bike, no problem. Custom allows you to bring a single sporting equipment that you can carry. I don't know about bike parts, but probably no problem.

    The weight limit is out of question, the bike will probably need to be considered extra luggage or special luggage, depending on the airline and the checkin agent, you could be charged 50 to 100 bucks per handling. I think that the checkin can waive this, but it depends on him/her.

    I guess... and only guess, the frame alone is no problem.

    Just in case... Madaleno, you're autorized to reduce packaging as necessary... dump the invoices if necessary (not many know how much a Hope Bulb hub is, doesn't it??) and all.

    You can carry one sporting article... which means if it was a complete bike then it could pass easily.... but a broken to pieces bike doesnt cut it snce this ass..les count each part as a sports article.... so he can carry the frame in his hands and smuggle the parts undeneath his trousers.

    At last you`ll have a decent ride and you should change your nick ASAP.
    Is that a single pivot?
    Lesson of the month: Don`t run of a cliff on your Mountain Bike. It`s quite painful.

    See... our ride group is becoming a nest of bling whors...

    I got the Titus and some Flak Jackets and a wrong size BB. No more.

    Rocky Rene got a sweet pair of Hope Bulb hubs, a RF Deus headset, WTB saddle, RF handlebar and even some Thomson stem cap (I ordered one too) along with other goodies.

    So... our ride rat-pack has...

    Two Turners (both completely blinged up), Two Titus (yours blinged, mine half crap/half bling), a RM fully blinged with Hope hubs Thomson and RF goodies... wow!!

    And we don't consider ourselves snobs, poseurs or bling-whors...

    haha, I'm going to shed my RF handlebar and Vital stem soon.... If you want them we can talk about it... going for a Thomson 4X and Easton EA50 OS Monkeylite...

    I'd like to get Mada's XTT, but not much budget right now

    No way.

    Warp has class ...

    Or how should I be called?? Switchblade?? Sounds ridiculous!! It's a nice name for a bike... but sounds like a jail nickname on someone. Like if you were caught and put in prison for bike smuggling.

    Life comes full circle... my family used to call me "Tito" when I was a little kid. "Tito" translates to "Titus" in english or latin. But Tito sounds so gay as a screen name!!

    Worst case... Warpblade... but I feel comfortable being just Warp. My kid likes MIni-Warp a lot... and Mrs. Warp has grown old on my wife

    Nah, seriously... do like this... put the old trusty Black on the ML (or a Suntour XCP-75 I have laying around). Sell off the TALAS and finance yourself the XTT. Maybe Madaleno would give you a buddy deal but don't put my words into Mada's mouth.

    You get a Float XTT, Mada gets some dough and someone else gets a sweet TALAS. Maybe Pornstar would love to upgrade his Reba.
    Actually, I thought about selling the Talas for 5000 and just paying the difference. I don't know if I could sell the Talas soon, but I would need to have the money before buying the XTT. I don't know if the XTT would make a big difference, but I'm still thinking on it.

    Or, selling the Black, moving the Talas to my Stumpy and the XTT on my ML, decisions, decisions....

    I've got a question for ya' - what's Warp gonna do about his username?

    Tit-head? Nah, too rude for a Moderator.

    Titus04 - nah, too predictable.

    Mexi-Tit - YEAH!

    Dude, when I was your age our bicycles had no pedals and the best reason to make a 6 footer was not fun, but to escape from dinosaurs or Sabretooth cats.... so consider yourself lucky. I had to wait until I was 27 to get my first real fork; a Manitou SX 80mm from when Manitous were HOT!!

    To increase your post count, just do like Shiver Me Timbers... write two words on each one and divide a coherent sentence in like ten or twelve posts....



    Bob... The Mexican Maf.... er... Social Club intercepted the guys who tried to intercept my frame (and Rene's hubs)... now THEY sleep with the fishes and tomorrow you'll find the fork of your Leader along with the headtube and handlebars hanging from your livingroom's ceiling....
