and i'm not entirely sure what to do about it.
i tried that and apparently they're too busy till the second week in march
What did you do?
What have you done?
That's the thing, this much i know. i have too many bikes, the flat is too small, i don't get excited about bleach. She has just taken on a really hardcore job and her fiance has disappeared for 3 months which is going to take it's toil but i've got to go to a party tomorrow night and i'm worried about being lynched for leaving the butter out of the fridge.
Why more than one bike?
I don't think it would be natural to get excited about bleach.
Why has her fiance gone?
Where is the rocking party? Will there be boobies there?
Its good to leave butter out for a while, it spreads easier. On toast like.
so i have 4 bikes, 2 uninsured that are locked to the garage downstairs, one which is folded up in the living room (it's not insured to be in the garage) and 4 which is in my bed room, it only goes in the hall if i've been using it in the rain and can't put it on the cream carpet.
Her fiance went for 6 weeks to quatar? back in december, not actually back yet.
You can't spread butter straight from the fridge you see - and i make my own bread and it just fails with cold butter.
OCD/Boring? I think you've got the wrong flatmate ...... how do you label your museli?
I have a brompton (insured) for work because they have no bike parking at the offive
I have a rockhopper because when the thieves stole my first brompton they left this bike and the police weren't interested in picking it up. It only has one brake.
I have a pashley which was given to me as a leaving present.
I have a road bike which was a christmas present
The pashley and rockhopper are in the basement the brompton and roadbike are in my bedroom along with a colnago which isn't mine, it's just resting. It's all to do with insurances mainly
AND A ROCKHOPPER? BIKE ENVY
ain't all that.
And what is he doing in quatar?
he came from quatar hasn't got round to coming back yet.
the party is tomorrow btw. Manor House. There's a theramin tribute act called therapy
give me one of your bikes. my hercules compact is busted and i could do with a set of wheels to go to the shops.
you want the rockhopper? it's got a suspended seat post - BOUNCY
that sounds awesome. what size are the wheels? my girlfriend's uncle recently got one. it's pretty beautiful.
The wheels are 26 inch and the frame fits me at 5 foot 6 but you could probably push it up a bit further. It needs a bit of work though ....
i'm only 5 ft 8 so it sounds good for me. my dad gave me his old raleigh when my bike broke but it's for real big men. i can't even get on it.
err the disc brakes are broken, i rode it for a while though before i got my replacement. Oh and i've never got the gears to work properly, it's got a quite small range.
well...you don't need brakes reaaaalllly. how many gears does it have, six? man i want a rockhopper.
and she's taking it out on you?
should i get a bmx or would that be really tiring and lame to cycle about on?
how big are your thighs, they look pretty cool but you'd probably get the same effect on a fixie
whats a fixie?
It's a hipster bike with only one gear and no brakes so it's low maintenance. Loads of kids have them in london.
are they cheap? where do you get them? i'm quite hip
dirt cheap, that's why all the students have them. Are you london based ? I can direct you if that's the case otherwise i'd say ebay
and i'm gona get a house a bit outside town so i'll be cycling more. how much is dirt cheap??
gumtree (seriously) or tour de ville
everyone is selling huge bikes and they're all located in croydon or whatever.
tour de ville looks cool. no clue about pricing anywhere though, unfortunately.
or chunky. you would need to make the seat and handle bars real high though to feel comfortable. my flatmate is 6 foot 1 or something and he has a bmx, with the seat and handlebars at the lowest place possible. he looks like a gorilla riding a kids bike.
and my limbs are pretty thin, i would probably look mad and gangly
you wouldn't if you just stood up all the time, it'd look fine.
Get a nice road bike, high seat, low handlebars, nice position. It should be ok.
He didn't know what to do about this, so he stayed with his brother for a week
Though isn't that what web cams are for ? we can all watch her ......
I might even suck on his biceps. When questioned, I'll say I thought that's how you get muscular.
P.s. You think you have problems. Iranian Marc Avery is back.
If not, and so long as you're not doing anything wrong, who gives a shit? Just ignore her if she's being a twat.
Obviously the thing you should be doing is getting rid of all the bikes. Are you mad?
Your first move is to buy more bikes.
the house mate then used my computer and read this thread, got upset about it and then told all my friends...
what do i do now???
