    ****, I'm that guy

    Sold out, as it were. Followed the herd. Had to give it a go.



    After a few tries I got it right. My new ass sled makes me feel all swanky inside. **** if this rearend isn't the cat's pj's. And I ****** hate cats. Almost as much as I hate red.

    I posted pics of my Surly cog first. You're still late to the party.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Nice. 29's rock. Now go tell Umarth and ISAR.

    BTW, you'll love the EM. It's my favorite bike right now.

    I hate ****ing pajamas.

    How big is the rest of that bike? I might need to test it for you. Just to make sure...

    Yes I am aware. Love Todd's work, just can't afford it.

    Naa, I'm busy chewing on a size 9; and anyway I don't want ISAR distracted from my pending order.

    I really enjoy it. I plan to really really enjoy it next week when the Grande fork arrives.

    I went with the 18" (I'm 5'11" at my favorite convenience store ). ETT was 6mm shorter than my Inbred & it's a pretty good fit out of the box. I swapped the stock bar/stem for my riser & will likely need a new 90 or 100mm stem.

    You're a ****ing **** sucking traitor.

    And way to cog tease your ass sled. I want to see the whole thing. Just never tell me you like it more than 26". ISAR is AWOL and doesn't back up my outlandish claims anymore.

    Edit: Also, what's up with the screw/slider interface? Not tightened in photo? Does it actually tighten flush?

    I think you are hitting the apostrophes pretty hard, my friend.

    Is what it is. There is a taper on the thread block that might be causing you optical delusion.

    Why does that sound so familiar?



    ps. I ****** love the way this bike rides. It's like riding Velcro tires on a never-ending ribbon of blue outdoor carpeting. Or something like that.

    Yeah, just quoting the film--the apostrophes don't do justice to the sound of the stranger's voice, though; do they?

    Could be.

    I think you'd feel better about life if you were more open-minded and learned to accept bi2ger and better things.

    I'd + rep you if I could. To make you feel better.

    Oh puh-leeze. I am so open minded. My first real SS was a Karate Monkey and I was on that bike for a year. I've also managed a year or so on 650bs. 26" is my favorite. Go figure.

    I'd give you my approval, but I think I have to hit up 90 other people before I hit you up again, so it will never happen.
