I'm a relative newby, have posted questions and received superb,prompt, c ourteous, and informative answers from posters across(around?) the planet .

Lurking in the background during the, er, 'discussions' about signage Ith ought for a moment I'd stumbled into a University committee meeting: you know the old adage, "The fights are so bitter because the issues are so small."

Then, at the end of one of my daily copiled bunches of CR posts was this from Sarah G.: sarahgibsonkansacitymissouriusa

in the guise of 'you've got to be this [] smart (tall - think kidscarniva l ride) to be here, her singoff may be non-standard but I'd hopeall here can parse the bits and figure out where she is.

For the grouches, relax - it's cabin fever after a long winter. Bestcure is to get out & ride. And as cruddy as the New Hampshirespring has been s o far, I'm taking out a '74 Gitane that's a singlespeed I rebuilt (short clean-up) in spite of the slush.
