Yes, I dream about it at night.
No, isn't carbon fiber just plastic?
Who is TTT, and where can I get one?
Ibis Mojo, isn't that a marinade?

I saw TTT yesterday, and his new fork. I personally think that his bike is real cool. What do you think....?

What fork did he get?  Don't tell me he sprung for one of the DT-Swiss carbon fiber goodies.
 
If his bike gets any prettier, I am going to through a gallon of nail polish remover in a fit of jealous rage and watch it melt.

Sweet...I guess you had to (no choice in the matter at all, I undertstand) match the fork to your rear shock.
 
 
I'm now off to CVS to see if that have any large bottles of nail polish remover.

Once again Tom and his bike were the focal point at our stops at Boyette on Sunday with lots of touching, picking up, oohs and aahs. Now if only some of these shiny bits would start to pay off in speed ;)

I thought Tom's bike was the bomb until I saw Dave's bike. ;)

Who cares how fast you go, as long as you look good doing it.  ;)

And I thought I did a halfway decent job of trying to keep up with you.  And if you wouldn't have pushed me into the deep sand on the double track, I would have beat you to the parking lot. (online anyway)  :D

I guess we can now all crack jokes that TTT's fork is on backwards.

It pains me to say this but I would have to take the super sweet Ellsworth (orange accents) over the Ibis. I'm very sorry Tom but I think you can understand where I'm coming from. Hope you don't call block me now.

Yeah Jonesy, it makes me throw up in my mouth a little too. I'm just jealous though, I'll go a head and admit it.

Even though Gregg started this thread about MY bike, I don't mind being 2nd behind Dave's bike.  :)
