|saw the new Classic, Vortex and the cheaper version of the Ghiasallo, The Siena. Very nice, although I am not a big fan of the compact geometry.
The Siena was nice with shaped tubing and the welds on these frames seemed exceptional for whatever reason. Maybe Litespeed is paying more attention to this as it is one of the criticisms they seem to get consistently. Not that the aesthetics of the weld has anything to do with the structural integrity and strength or penetration of the welds.
However, there is this notion that if the welds are "pretty" they are better and that the welders took so much pride in their "art". This is in fact marketing hype. Bikes are our passion, but to the welder, it is just another day's pay.
Regardless, the bikes look great with integrated headsets in all but the Classic which looked pretty funky with the new decals. Comments welcome if any others have seen the new lineup. Please no silly bashing, it proves nothing and I am not interested.

|a jerko@#. Honestly, don't you have anything better to do with your time? You are so obsessed with this idea (delusion) that I post under a 100 different names. I am beyond giving a Sh## what people think of me here. You are in fact at least 50% for the reason for the constant bickering because you initiate most of these exchanges with you snide remarks. You are an absolte fu(king loser and once again you have instigated an argument. All you people can chime in about me all you want, but Mike you are an A$$hole. If this isn't you as the handle is a little different, then I am in the wrong. However, it is most likely you as it is consistent with your stupidity. This guy tries to start a thread about what he saw at his LBS and of course, yours is the first response to taint it.|
|You're right; it's me||mickey-mac|

|I changed my handle this morning and have mentioned that in several posts throughout the day. Because of some kind of snafu in the system as a result of the recent changes in the board, I can't log on with "mike mcmahon" as my screen name any more, so I figured it was time for a change. What do you/Bill think of the new handle?
mickey-mack, fka mike mcmahon
|Well. your new handle is||Lazyrider|

|fine, your the a$$hole.:) What makes you so sure I am this guy Bill?? Other than your own delusions of course.|
|Proof that u r not slothlike & we will believe anything u say nm||Perry Mason|

|Mike, Perry Mason is not what I would consider||Lazyrider|
Sep 7, 2001 9:38 PM
|a good disguise for you. Mike (Perry) you are indeed a pathetic, disturbed loser. It is so sad that you have no and you really need some medication. You truly are an idiot and I hope you don't have a job that requires any sense of responsibility. Even bagging my groceries would be outof your league.|
|LR, those last two messages were just sad||mickey-mac|
Sep 7, 2001 9:50 PM
|That Perry Mason thing just didn't make any sense. Why would I post a message saying that you're not Slothlike and we believe what you say? Besides, I use my real handle when I have something to say. I'm finished with this ridiculous thread. I'm going to get some sleep now; maybe you should do the same.|

|NO WONDER I FU(KING CAN'T STAND YOU, YOU ARE A SCUMBAG LAWYER. Oh, you are all scumbags. Plus you prove your are Obsessive Compulsive or just a dork by stating "I am 38 years old 9 months and 13 Days". WHAT A FU(KING TOOL!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA Is that your half (.) way of trying to be funny or cute? BLAAAAAAAAAACCCCHHHHHHHHH
Plus you admit you are ugly, I give you credit for that, but I am sure no one is surprised. THE PERRY MASON THINGS SEEMS REAL CONSPICUOUS NOW THAT I KNOW YOU"RE A LAWYER.
And please tell me who this "WE" you refer to all the time? or is that another one of your hallucinations?
I know you're type. One of those anal-retentive maniacs obsessed with neatness, detail and specificity. (tell me I'm wrong and I won't believe you). Ughhhhhhhh. If you are married I pity your wife.
You boarder on harassment with your instigating and constant following of my posts and responding to me every time. Something I don't do to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, I am not a pu$$y, so if that is what you chose , so be it.
Every time you intitiate something (like you did this time, once again), I will respond. You haven't and will not see me post just to harass you. This behavior really says something about you. YOU ARE NUTS. Almost like a stalker. God, I hope you never find me, I am getting a little scared.

|Are you just juvenile, incredibly angry, must have the last word, psycho, or what? Just let it go when people bait you and you'll save yourself from getting all worked up. Your flaming posts used to have some humor value, but are really getting old aready... it's just sad (and all too predictable). Just let it go (unless you really are posting uder 100 different names).|

|He often uses two or more names under the same post (to make it look like there are others who share his twisted views.) When he is caught in the act he reverts to using the word "douche" quite alot.
Litespeed frames are great machines (just ask Lance, he owes his world championship to a Litespeed). They do not need any help from bogus posters.

|"just ask Lance, he owes his world championship to a Litespeed"....why would you say this? Does Michael Jordon owe his success to a pair of Nikes as well? Does Jimi Hendrix owe his fame to a Fender Stratocaster?
Could Lance have won on a different bike or only a litespeed?
|Look we all know...||Lite_Speed_Creed|

|Lance owes his world championship to blood boosting. I was merely being satirical, as well as playing to the affections of the Litespeed crew.|

|This is the only Lazyrider post where he said anything that made much sense to me: "Honestly, don't you have anything better to do with your time?" As I was riding this morning, I realized that he was right. I have been spending too much time here. So I'm going to take off at least a few weeks from posting to catch up on reading and other things that have been getting too little time. Thanks, Lazyrider.|| |
