    It's to keep the chain from coming off the top, silly...

    Yours obviously transmits to underground Al Qaeda groups in Chicago, which are then transmitted to Osama in Siberia.

    the transmitting boomerang is similar to the concept of the antenna (sP) on a limo.

    Oh no I though mine was safe and secure until last night.
    I was awaken by a strange noise looked at the clock it was 3:45 am, went into the bike room and there was a strange green glow emmiting through the whole room from outside the window and two very small green 3 fingered creatures standing aroung my Norco as they notice me every thing seemed to stand still for just a moment then they just vanished and the green glow rocketed toward space like nothing you have ever seen. I looked and the clock agian and it was 4:25 (40 min had passed) its a good thing I am typing this now because my memory of this is fading fast I bet by lunch I don't remember a thing

    So maybe mine does send signals but I don't think it is anything of this earth

    John,
    Just wanted to let you know that the Heim roller you put on my MR. Pee at the Sea Otter is still working great. Do you have a pic you could post or PM me by any chance? BTW, I thought you kinda resembled Sadam Hussein .

    if your foot bounces up, then on it's way back down, it will hit the top roller and roll your foot back onto your pedal, that way you don't lose a pedal stroke whilst hucking curbs

    Well, all this talk about the government spying on me via my chainguide has prompted some swift action on my part. I covered my "XCer" Heim 3guide with a super high-tech anti-brain wave damping material that I developed in my laboratory. My brain is safe!!!!!

    True story: I once got a free Chipotle burrito for wearing all aluminum foil. Was it worth it? Yes.

    " cause theres a rip under my skin and theres a little yellow man in my head" (my best Ray Davies impression)

    Man I had no idea mountain bikers had such scitzophrenic (not sure on the spelling) paranoid tendencies I knew I should have kept them discharge papers

    Ah, a common mistake. While aluminum foil may yield tasty chipotle burritos, it is no use against the yoda-alien commies that infect our minds through our chainguides, and very possibly through the flouride in our drinking water.....I'm sorry my friend, but the commies already control your brain.....

    That would explain my sudden desire to unite my working class breathren under the glorious banner of socialist revolution. That might just be the liquor talking though. Commies drink vodka like its water, everyone know that...
