    Of course I enjoy it here , there's decent banter plus the game is fun .
    As for distressed, not really, just think it's common courtesy to explain why I can no longer post on my original account

    Btw ...I didn't want to get all grammar Nazi and point out loose vs lose so thanks for that Rolling On The Floor

    Anyway, I have even fewer permissions than Gkam in the game and none whatsoever in the forums so I haven't got a clue what's going but I was enjoying the peace and quiet.

    As far as I'm concerned the forums are better for the pair of you not being around as much and if only we could loose enrique the atmosphere would markedly improve.

    Clearly those are my opinions and nothing to do with road.cc but the lot of you are pushing me towards either abandoning the forums entirely like Wig_billy or quitting the game altogether.

    Dan, Dan, Dan... Big Grin What can I do to please you? Thinking You must be a great guy, and so must Gkam, for that matter... I mean, you're friends with Dave, you have his trust...But the truth is, I too, have thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the 'peace and quiet' here, especially (!) because you've (!) been avoiding the forums (!) Big Grin How ironic! Smile I enjoy chiv, I laugh at northie's occurences... This is not (!) a bad place! I love (!) it (!), with (!) or without (!) you (!) Big Grin

    I wish you had spoken up earlier in this mess... Sometimes I don't think you realize how 'official' you and Gkam are perceived by me, and maybe others (!), and I think it would have been good for you to have spoken up about this earlier... The man (chiv) is clearly in distress about this situation and you speaking up about it would have been better for all, in my (!) opinion. You're clearly gifted and educated. I do (!) think highly of you. You are (!) a spreadsheet master and obviously someone very dedicated to this game, but, sh*t (!), sometimes you aggravate me with what I see as a 'holier than thou' attitude. If you ask me, TER is the most human, and I hate to say this, but, the most 'professional'of all the admins here. Always professional, always 'even keeled'. I think he does a mighty fine job here, is the consumate professional and never 'loses his cool' Big Grin

    All in all, I'm happy here Big Grin And chiv must like it here too (!) to be that (!) upset that he's been marginalized, for lack of a better word... We're all human... By the way, watch how you use 'loose'... I think you meant 'lose'...

    I'll say this, Wig Billy isn't around on the forums anymore, but he's damn (!) sure still playing... I bet you yourself (!) couldn't stop playing bar some unforeseen tragedy in your life (!) I couldn't (!) And we all have Dave to thank for that (!) Big Grin And as far as Gkam and his drama about leaving? Waiting Are you kidding? Big Grin With the amount of posting he does here I can't even see how he ever manages to fix a bike (!) Just kidding, of course Big Grin I love you, Dan. Let's hug it out like a family! Smile

    2 pens though for Ferrari and Appollonio, more for 3 and particularly 4 than today but thought I might as well do them early as they might get something today as well.

    Who have you got?

    Well I have to say I appreciate your honesty.
    I do have a question for you though , is it the fact that i have an opinion that you disagreed with that makes you believe the forum is better off without me?

    If so doesn't that defeat the whole point of being part of a forum , a difference in opinion is what makes a forum tick.

    If you have no control over the forum btw then you could have quite easily stated as much when you first noticed the post .

    Again appreciate your honesty but this has nothing to do with Enrique . However as you bought him into this I have to point out , yes at times he can be over enthusiastic but he only ever seems to have the site/game/ forums interests at heart ,so your comments on him are uncalled for .

    Yes we all know he has been a but silly with pseudonyms but that's all .

    Now to be blunt , wig left the forum because he didn't like the fact ppl were annoyed over the blatant cheating that he and others undertook .

    If you really want to leave the forum go ahead , it would be sad to see you go , but that's your prerogative

    I'm 6'1" and was riding a couple of 58 Cannondales until I ordered a Canyon bike last year and Canyon's online tool (the one you enter all your measurements into) suggested I needed a Medium (56) size instead. I was a little skeptical, but in the end I was glad I went for the smaller bike - I feel a lot more comfortable on it.

    Well, obviously he already did (!)... This is what's interesting, because he's Premium he still gets to keep his chiv30 account to play and he gets to keep his old game results and history, but how could he transfer his results from the old account to the new one? Great user names by the way! Smile Both (!) of you (!) Smile

    The trouble with that is for every mirror you add you create an additional blind spot.

    There aren't many americans, so to drop the budget too much may make it too hard, so lets stick with 40.0.

    I might do a calculation where i divide the final total score of a threesome by their total value and see which threesome has the best points per value score, just for fun. bit nerdy maybe.

    I'm 5'7 with a 29" inside leg , so not a million miles away from you proportionally, I have a 50cm canyon ultimate cf 8.0 after I got slammed the stem I found I needed a 10 mm longer stem than came with the bike to stop me feeling cramped in the drops , if I'd gone the next size up I'd have had to run a shorter stem so it sounds like I'm between sizes but I'm glad I went with the 50 as a stem change or seatpost change is easier to solve than an overly large frame
