Humor gets a bad rap in this place - all the softies think it's someone being mean...

Oh, you get paid alright, Anytime a butterfly flaps it's wings, I get paid.blak_byke said:Sign me up LOL! What this whole mod thing pay? The economy is kinda' jacked and you know.......
Sad thing is that I'm actually about to dump my Trek frame stash....930 (x 3), 970 and 990.

I just knew this was a fishing expedition for pricing on your frames
You are so kind and I my sense of of humor takes me a loooong way because my biking skills sure won't lol. My stash was, admittedly, my weak attempt @ getting what I thought to be a quality bike.....and they truly are in my opinion. I'm definitely no purist as I probably won't, in the foreseeable future, do a period correct restoration, but I DO love looking @ you guy's rides. I'm more of a 'modern twist on a classic' kinda guy which is why I get excited about Misterdangerpants and others builds so much.girlonbike said:Right?! Luckily he's a funny dude so no harm, no foul.
I think, frankly, the regulars can spot weirdness a million miles away and just get cranky about it. For example, people gave absolutely great advice early on in the momo thread but the OP was so dismissive, it was downright rude. His claim that he was just going to keep at it until somebody passes out and THEN look at the helpful advice was enough to show his strange attitude toward the forum members. Do my work, minions, and then I'll reward you with no ride report, no follow up and absolutely no pictures. Lame.
Anyhow, that's it! I'm done! Phew! I don't think I've met anybody with a Trek Stash before. They unfortunately, for their owners, don't sell for much.
...and everybody is supposed to know about this unspoken etiquette consisting of "ride report, pictures and follow up". I don't work for you nor do you work for me. You don't have to post a reply, nor does the OP have to post a ride report, pictures or follow up.His claim that he was just going to keep at it until somebody passes out and THEN look at the helpful advice was enough to show his strange attitude toward the forum members. Do my work, minions, and then I'll reward you with no ride report, no follow up and absolutely no pictures. Lame.
Are we now entering into conflict? I don't recall us having any issues. I only address those who attack first.The knowledge and camraderie gained with out being a pretentious a-hole is its own reward. A concept blak_byke gets and you obviously don't.
