    Just got it together

    I just got the Gunnar finished this past weekend. Rode it on sat. and it was a blast to ride. I was going to take it out today but the weather is a mix of snow and rain so I think I'll wait until later. Take a look and tell me what you think. If anyone is looking for a 20" 1X1 complete or just a frame drop me a line.

    Nice ride, you're going to have fun

    I've had my Gunnar for 3 years and the ride has always been great. Suspended or rigid, slicks or big a$$ tires, it's all good.

    It's probably a good idea to Framesave it soon.

    Congrats, Nice Gunnar!

    I had a chance to take a Gunnar Ruffian for a short spin once and I really like it. Nice rig, you should be stoked. May it bring you many miles of pleasure!

    Nice looking rig you got there. I've got a black Rockhound (geared currently) and really think they are a great frame for the bucks. Enjoy.

    New question here.

    Hey Ernesto...have the gnomes been dining on those cool plastic letters on your fork? Be careful when they start heading for the frame!

    Gnome Soufflé

    SUMMARY:

    Prep Time:
    ***
    15 minutes

    Cook Time:
    ***
    2 hours

    Meal Type:
    ***
    Appetizer

    Meal Category:
    ***
    Appetizers

    Occasion:
    ***
    Any

    *
    INGREDIENTS:

    2 fresh gnomes
    1 tomato
    3 onions
    1 loaf of vitamin enriched Wonderbread
    2 sticks of butter
    a pinch on the butt
    1 pound cake pan

    PREPARATION:

    This is going to be a delectable appetizer for you and your guests. Can be used as a pate, or as a dip, depending on the day of the week.

    Preheat oven to 500 degrees

    Melt the butter in the microwave oven.

    Wash and rinse the gnomes, leave them in their cage while you dice the tomato and the
    onions.

    Once the tomato has been diced, do the same to the onions right next to the gnomes’
    cage.

    Tie their hands behind their backs with a zip tie. Then dip feet first into the melted butter.

    Sponge off the remaining butter with the Wonderbread.

    While gnomes still alive, use remaining bread slices to make a gnome wrap.

    Roll the gnomes spottily on the bread slices, and stick in the oven for 2 hours.

    Once two hours have passed, take the Gnome Soufflé out of the oven and pour the diced tomato and onions, then stir until it has a similar consistency to Rice Krispies Treats.


    ********COMMENTS:


    Dip your favorite tortilla chips, or spread over a nice piece of 6-grain bread. This recipe can be used in conjunction with guacamole.

    If you don't like the taste of gnome and are to lazy to mask the flavor with ranch dressing, give it to your neighbor's dog.
