    Well then, it's a pity that no one has mentioned that these frames were well known in the industry for causing male pattern baldness and in some cases complete impotence.

    So the OP posted something over the weekend and it got dumped as spam?

    All good, but I can't make heads nor tails of what he's getting at.

    Trying to make sense of this hurt my head.

    And the components on the Colnago hurts my eyes a bit.

    Nice frame though.

    With a better parts group $650 would have been an OK price. Cool bikes.

    Yup. No idea what they rode though
    Mapei had a MTB team too and they rode Diamondbacks

    I'm not sure what your point was there.

    Not every Colnago was covered in clover leaf cut outs or pantographs. In fact, about all that confirms is that it's not a 1980s Colnago road bike.

    Like I said in the other thread, the gilco tubing and the chromed lug with the clover are Colnago trademarks. Don't know if its a Rabo team bike. So far, nobody does.

    Just gonna toss this out there.

    Perhaps get off the texting device, get to an actual keyboard, think about what you want to say, and communicate in well written, complete sentences that when read back, sound like the english language as opposed to poorly executed Madarin to English translations.

    If your primary language isn't English, this will be a good exercise as well

    P.S. Nice looking bikes if they're yours, post up some more pics!

    If I were to summarize Mr. '02 Nrs's unprincipled animadversions I'd need only one word: two-faced. Here's a quick review: Mr. Nrs's hypocrisy is transparent. Even the least discerning among us can see right through it. I clearly hope you're not being misled by the "new Mr. Nrs". Only his methods and tactics have changed. Mr. Nrs's goal is still the same: to set the hoops through which we all must jump. That's why I'm telling you that Mr. Nrs's scare tactics are always accompanied by hyperbolic rhetorical claims that are clearly perceived after-the-fact as transparently inerudite. I won't dwell on that except to direct your attention to the impertinent manner in which he has been trying to arrest and detain his castigators indefinitely without charge, without trial, and without access to legal counsel.

    Mr. Nrs accuses me of being splenetic whenever I state that he got into a snit the last time I pointed out that his conduct can be described as less than gentlemanly. All right, I'll admit that I have a sharp tongue and sometimes write with a bit of a poison pen, but the fact remains that if you are not smart enough to realize this, then you become the victim of your own ignorance. There are three fairly obvious problems with his press releases, each of which needs to be addressed by any letter that attempts to defend with dedication and ferocity the very rights that he so desperately wants to abolish. First, he uses his victim status as a kind of magic incantation to stifle debate, disparage critical analysis, and persuade us that anyone who disagrees with him is a potential terrorist. Second, the ideas backing up his insinuations are extremely obtuse and haughty. And third, I have begged his shills to step forth and tell Mr. Nrs what we all think of him—and boy, do I have some choice words I'd like to use. To date, not a single soul has agreed to help in this fashion. Are they worried about how Mr. Nrs might retaliate? I'll tell you the answer in a moment. But first, let me just say that Mr. Nrs's statements such as "Mr. Nrs's little empire is looking out for our best interests" indicate that we're not all looking at the same set of facts. Fortunately, these facts are easily verifiable with a trip to the library by any open and honest individual.

    Personally, I don't expect Mr. Nrs to give up his crusade to kill the goose bearing the golden egg, but we'll see. Believe it or not, a few obstructionism-oriented kleptomaniacs actually want him to endow heathenism with a false legitimacy. In my view, this is a consummate outrage, an unmitigated despotism, an unparalleled infamy, and an atrocious crime. Astute observers have known for years that if he can't cite the basis for his claim that undiscoverable, unmeasurable, magical forces from another plane of existence have given him superhuman wisdom then he should just shut up about it. If I were a complete sap, I'd believe Mr. Nrs's line that we can stop particularism merely by permitting government officials entrée into private homes to search for oligophrenic ghastly-types. Unfortunately for him, I realize that Mr. Nrs is entirely mistaken if he believes that his opinions represent the opinions of the majority—or even a plurality. It may seem to many people, maybe even the majority, that he's exceptionally eager to blame our societal problems on handy scapegoats. His insuperable acrasia is partly to blame for that, but another part of the story is that knowledge is the key that unlocks the shackles of bondage. That's why it's important for you to know that when it comes time to take a stand, Mr. Nrs invariably dives for cover. Stated differently, if we let him sow the seeds of demagogism we'll be reaping the crop for quite a long time. Let me end by saying that I know that what I have written in this letter will send many readers (especially any who are big fans of Mr. '02 Nrs) into a tizzy or a tantrum. I am sorry, but I remind them that Mr. Nrs can't control his desire to have everything he wants and to have it now.

    Hollister, you are a true wordsmith. Luckily I have the necessary stupendous acumen to actually absorb what you've said! Brilliant. Surely Mr. Nrs. is now boiling over with unbridled excess passion more typically demonstrated by the outrageous behaviour of such learned statesmen as Mr. P. Pot. Do these individuals have exemplary penmanship? I think not, and it behooves fine gentlemen to elucidate their failings all too well when they rise up against so many of their betters who were merely asking for clarity and a return to days of yore when communication distinguished man from beast.
