I think he's right, those tubes from Home Depot just aren't quite right for a "headset bracket"

Is he high? How high is he?

edit: this guy is hysterical. I can't get enough of these. Especially the ones where he 'makes' stuff. http://www.youtube.com/...natedCyclist&p=r

With 17,000 ST'ers, surely someone knows who he is.

Gold?!? I'm thinking platinum!

I really like his idea of making an exception in the Tour to let Contador ride. Not his team, mind you, but at least letting Contador ride to defend his title. Genius! I'm sure a solo rider has a great shot.

"dog bite" will be in his greatest hits collection at some point. He spends about 3 out of every 10 seconds drinking from his water bottle ( with milk in it, I think).

"Great ride today, about 2 and a half hours uninterrupted, except for 1 interruption. When I got bit by a dog. He's a really scary dog I've talked about before"

Oh. My. God. I can't watch anymore.

1) Dude, it's called a ball catch. The cupboards in your mom's kitchen upstairs probably make use of them. Home depot sells them not far away from the Black Iron pipe you want to use for your next frame.

2) He sounds like one of the prophets from Monty Python's Life of Brian: "There shall, in that time, be rumours of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things wi-- with the sort of raffia work base that has an attachment. At this time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock. Yea, it is written in the book of Cyril that, in that time, shall the third one..."

That was 3 minutes of my life I'll never get back..

After watching a few of those, I'm quite convinced that he is, in fact, mentally disturbed. Like, I'm not joking.

Whats the problem with that? Some people couldn't handle it but some of us have the enough confidence to do it.

Turns out he is in Spartanburg SC.


How'd you get this info?

I'm fairly local and know a number of riders in Spartanburg. I'll see if I can get some more skinny. Maybe I'll start by seeing if there's been a run on tubing at any of the local Home Depot stores.
