    Monica: Wow! You are really fast!
    Chandler: It bodes well for me that speed impresses you.

    That's impressive. I used to race Larry Black (College Park Bicycles, MD) changing clinchers. What a hoot.

    Also, just out of curiousity, are all the frames pre chased and faced? Or is that part of the build process? Mechanics come with their own tools?

    If there had been a "fastest Stella drinker" contest, I'd be a very very serious contender.

    I have to go pick my bike up from Purdy right now. I told him to take his time, so I gave him a half hour for a complete overhaul.
