    Ignore the age thing. It will go away.

    Atmo: I'm just a retired investor with a pension, I went to Israel because as a Jew I wanted to live there in my twilight years.
    Reporter: Is it true you're worth 300 million dollars?

    Hi from PaulE, same PaulE as the other place. I rode 55 miles Sunday and 32 miles Saturday, may get to ride again before the weekend. How did I find this place?

    Johnny Ola told me about this; I didn't believe it. ... but seeing is believing. Ole Johnny knows all the places. I tol' you... can you believe it? The old man Roth, would never come; but Johnny knows these places like the back of his hand...

    Hi I'm FerrousWheels, I like that play on words, and had to use it. My bikes are steel - steel Serotta, steel Gary Fisher and an old steel Bridgestone from my high school days back in the seventies (love that old SunTour / Sugino / Sakae SR stuff). I'm also in a queue for a new modern steel bike. So FerrousWheels works for me. I'm looking forward to participating on this board.

    Call me Steve if you'd like. Its my name.

    Finally, I love all those Godfather quotes. There are many times at work (corporate desk job, not a professional gambler) when a quote from the Godfather is just completely appropriate. Hyman Roth is an all time fave. Lee S. could've been my grandfather's twin brother.

    if i could only live to see it, to be there with you. what i wouldn't give for twenty more years! here
    we are, protected, free to make our posts without serotta andrew, the goddamn marketing department,
    and the other lurkers ninety miles away, in partnership with a friendly message board. ninety miles!
    it's nothing! just one small step, looking for a man who wants to be supreme mouthpiece, and having
    the 1s and 0s to make it possible. josh, we're bigger than u.s. steel atmo.

    Please don't make me read that name on this forum. How 'bout you change it to Steel Wheels and you can tell us lies about how you worked on the Stone's road crew?

    Don't take it personal. It's just that it's personal.

    No seriously. It's not even punny, Liberace. Every time I see it I picture you as an overweight dude in girl pants and smudged mascara. Steelwheels. Now that's a cool name. You should use it. Seriously.

    Missed reading the water cooler banter, happy to have found this place. doing the polite thing and checking in here rather than eavesdropping anonymously.

    finally found my way to the lunch room after missing the few bells. Good to see the band is still together. I though the rapture happened and I didnt get to go.

    Marketing department? You can have my answer now, if you like. My final offer is this: nothing. Not even the fee for posting threads or replies, which I would appreciate if you would put up personally.

    OK Pucci, I've made the leap (and not just for SRAM).

    Too many good folks over here not to come and play.
