Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

When I T-boned a Delta 88, years ago, the front fork bent so the dropouts were within an inch of the downtube. But nothing broke.

S.Giant, I'm going with real. Based on the reflections.

And I'll say it again. Nice lookin' bike, UM.

Glad to hear it, UM. Those red GP4000s are too styling to stand still. And are those Time Impact pedals?

I had a front fork bend when I was biking uphill, broke my arm and then both wheels got stolen that night.

βrian, I've had a few involuntary fork straightenings, too. I've come to think of forks as wear items, unfortunately.

If Louis DeJoy wanted to sponsor HDT like the U.S. Postal Service backed Armstrong's team, he might win some fans. Who cares if the mail doesn't show up.

@ARB Is it safe to come out now? Can I stop playing Aggressive Inline on PS2 and skate through a park without getting dry macaroni thrown in my path?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Asheville Jon:

UM, if you are referencing my Ross theme, I guess there is, sorta? I grew up within miles of T-Town and Spectrum, so they have a hometown appeal to me. Not the everyday, mass produced Ross stuff though, just the "higest" end stuff. They are pretty "rare", as Ross did not make many upper end handbuilt frames/bikes

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm efd:

I figure I'm not the only one who was curious:

"After their Australian success with a cover version of UK band Mungo Jerry’s In The Summertime earlier in the same year, The Mixtures released this original song written in a similar vein, which again topped the Australian charts and was a hit in the UK as well.

The Pushbike Song has often been mistaken for a Mungo Jerry record because of its stylistic similarity with In The Summertime. Mungo Jerry did finally release a version of the song, but not until 1990 (see below)."
