Well I'm a little upset because I logged in and the site told me my sig was too large, but then I checked out some other sigs and they are still fine, despite being similar in size to my original.

Re: It's Friday, let's have some BMX fun.

Pickin' up my Hutch bars from FedEx (missed home delivery)...! Going home and finishing off the build with them - psyched, my first Hutch build.

Then, replacing the pedal cages on some XC-IIs, and installing them on the Kuwi LaserLite...then lastly installing the chain with my new Parks chain tool (crappy die-cast one I bought broke - should have just footed the $ for the Parks on day one)...then working on my Winter build-off Profile Champ, have to remove the chain and soak it in turpentine to loosen it up...then re-installing it!

Should have all that done by 5:00, which will give me an hour of light to test drive the Kuwi and the Hutch before neurotically cleaning them until about 7:00, when the Lady comes home, and I pretend that I've been doing something more productive on my afternoon off smile

Re: It's Friday, let's have some BMX fun.

Work at the museum.  Tonight, ghost tours.  Going to be dark and stormy... should be creepy for the visitors.  We do not decorate the museum for Halloween, nor do we have cheesy ghost/monster effects to "scare" people.  Straight up ghost tour... the building takes care of the rest on its own.  36,000 sq/ft Victorian institution.  I have a great job!

Anxiously awaiting my Schwinn THE STING PRO XL frame!  big_smile

Not jackin' thread! It's fun and what you're doing today. You're packing those up, writing a letter about how you'd like them laced, and mailing them to the "Wheel Building Dept" at Dan's Comp. Put your phone number on there. They'll call you when they receive, confirm what you want, ask for a cc#, and turn the job around in a day. Voila. Love those guys (and gals).

The Coop rocks. Saw his show in a ballroom in Milwaukee in '02, just laughed through the whole thing, best time ever. Dude is over the top. Read his latest book, too - awesome stuff.
