    It would be very cool if you could find them in small sizes for your boys.

    How did you manage the $89 price tag? Coupon code? their current "market price" for the camo one is $125.97.

    Might get around to doing the flames tonight. The kids want some on their bikes too:rolleyes: . First priority is going to be readjusting the chain line for better FD shifting.

    Kewl !!!

    I have girls, ages 6 & 2. The 6 year old has a Bell helmet with butterflies. Very chic.

    The 6 year old is funny & won't give up the training wheels. She's kinda wimpy in that regards, but the little demon can ski black diamonds at Vail and water ski. Go figure.

    Very Kewl! I hope to get mine out and teach them to ski/board next winter. Of couse that means a ski vacation - not too much snow down here:( - what's the job market like in Loveland? I started skiing at age 5 and racing NASTAR at 6.

    Depends what you're looking for.
    Tech: excellent. HP & various affiliates are clustered in NoColo.
    Medical: excellent
    Other: I dunno. I'm out of the loop.

    Oh, I almost forgot. PUSH is looking for help ;)

    Do they need a computer guy with a distribution/purchasing background????

    Not likely. At least not now.
    Kidding aside, if you're really interested then give a shout over to El Beastro who works for HP and is pretty wired with the tech community. Sometimes folks post occupational inquiries on the Front Range board too (best board aside from Turner).

    It ain't good beer, but it may be a job...
    A-B has a big brewery in Ft. Collins. Everthing is computerized, and they definitely deal with distribution and purchasing. New Belgium is up there too.

    Just a thought. I almost wound up there a few years ago.

    Is it hot down in the ATL yet?

    Good point.
    My neighbor is an A-B brewmasters. He's a good friend to have :)

    New Belgium.Mmmmmmmmmm.....Fat Tire.

    I should have mentioned that NoColo is also a hotbed for microbreweries. Among others, the list includes New Belgium, Ft.Collins Brewery, Odell, Avery, Left Hand, Boulder Brewery, etc.
