    Welcome to the forum Bebop! Let’s start out right... That handlebar position is trippy. It looks like you have a fit problem...

    To be an official member here, you MUST remove that dorky reflector and those rat-trap pedals. The internet has spoken....

    The dork disc isn’t a sin but the improper bidon is.

    Anybody think it odd that, on the same day, 2 newb's first post say the same thing, "thank you for adding me to your forum"? Oh, and this one has been a member here for 5 years, without a single post?

    No, Toulouse, he's got toe clips and straps. He just tightens the strap and don't need no wimpy SPD cleats or special shoes. Superior technology.

    When rider finally goes down and bends the pedal cage, he can replace it without breaking the bank.

    Right purty bike, OP. Roll those bars down so you can rest the hands on the hoods, and level the saddle or you'll be sorry. That's why you have the bars tilted up, to keep the upper body from falling forward, right?

    No, that makes it easier to ride with a beer in one hand....

    So far, the picture of the bike is from an outdated ad on a site that says proceeds for its bike sales sends kids to school in Southeast Asia... and the user's other post is in praise of Pitbull pedal design. A little fishy to me.

    Upside: The post has reminded me I should pull my dad's old Armstrong down from the rafters and give it a ride this weekend.

    "Glean" the minds? But that would mean getting what was left behind, wouldn't it? Taking the scraps?

    I'm hoping Bebop will be able to glen your mind, as s/he has done to my mind.

    Possibly. But innocent until proven guilty. Maybe Coolhand can check the IP address on both posts?

    So were the two 'Hello and thanks for adding me to the group' threads a total bizarro coincidence? Is that why the other 'Hello' thread was locked?

    Don't know why the other "Hello" thread was locked and not this one. The OP there was the last one to post and Coolhand didn't post a reason for closing the thread like he usually does. The OP on this thread never returned since his first post.

    Yes- very strange coincidence based on my review. And the other thread had devolved sufficiently to call it a day before it went all the way off the cliff. You are free to start a new thread if there were some concepts or discussions you want to extend however.
