Not so much of a rule but a warning. Dont ever get the email address of a person whose working on the same project you are and whose equally enthusiastic. You will not get any work done :lol:

Not for NEWBEES!

1 Decide to slap some parts on the ole rig and....stumble across the site.
Glorious euphoric discovery. Hurrah people into old Mtbs.
Buying, selling, endless info at one's fingertips. Your children/work colegues are soon able to recognise the site on your PC from 30 ft away.

2 Enthusiastically leap right in. Step 2 is recognised by knowing Jez's home address. Gil's e-mail address and your new Paypal address.
Usually contains an E-Bay and booz incident.

3 E-Bay bumps. Learn to buy high sell low. Scammers, sharks and worse...
people with unlimited money to out bid you.
The end of phase 3 is clearly defined with "Bid Nip??? Snip!?!? You mean
people arnt even bidding?!?"

4 Learn Ameybrook is a Guy and Isaac_AG is a Girl.

5 Bike build gets stuck..followed by the purchase of another bike/project.
Realise you didnt ride that day so you could polish some 15 year old component.
Sell it for far less than your time cleaning/photographing/shipping was worth.

My God :shock:
are you a psychologist :lol: :lol:
Number 4 cracks me up :D

Don't go by car much. I always check out the bike first then the girl. Don't see many nice girls on bikes and cetainly not nice girls on nice bikes :shock: That would most certainly mean they have a man in their life who looks after the bike and know whats what concerning bikes. Sorry girls don't mean to upset any ladies on the site. May be its a london thing?


Get yourself over to Germany mate. I work in a big uni town sometimes and the sheer amount of stunning women you see on bikes is jaw-dropping. (this is why my dale is currently locked up there, waiting for my return :lol: )
I think the fact that most of the women there use bikes as their everday transport deffo contributes to their general fitness :wink:

#36b: You've worked for hours building, completing a perfect reproduction of what you owned BITD, thousands spent.

Legrandefromage finds one in original condition down the tip with just the tyres needing some air.

Oh dear - I already recognise shades of my experience so far. I'm deemed a geek by certain colleagues, and beyond the pale by my husband. Is there actually any hope of redempton?

i had a suspision i wasnt the only one to eye up the bike racks in town. stopping and staring at the old neglected milf (marin i'd like to filch). on odd occasions i have often felt like leaving a note offering to clean and lube their bike and crimp that frayed cable end.
