I'm going to print off this thread and read it as a one-may play, a la Beckett. "You must go on. I can't go on. I'll go on."

Essentially the site is running well enough, except that this forum continues to be overrun with insane bot conversations, right? (I took all my bikes down when the AI started p...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't all it take to fix this be for Coomer to just give someone with some basic website skills the admin/login? Hasn't it been like a month?

RIP PedalRoom, I guess?

I think NicolasCalifornia's posts are great. As if Roland Barthes suddenly rose from the grave and became super interested in track bikes.

Is it possible to make a 64 cm frame look like a 54?

Toe clips go on pedals with cages. You clip in to clipless pedals with cleats. Straps go on toe clips. But you wouldn't say steamed hams in Utica, it's an Albany expression.

if you feel the need for speed, as many do, why don't you source out some better components like a good wheelset and crankset rather than fretting over which aero aluminum frame...
