|paid me a visit in a dream last night. jesus spoke for them as he seemed to be the top dog ...... errr.. man in charge and thus spoke "hey spirito baby, we were chillin' with some cat called fausto and listened to what great things he had to say about cycling .... so much so, that we decided to get ouyselves kitted with some fine bici".
"fausto mentioned some guy .... a unicorn, eunuch, uni-something who mentioned ""its not about the bike"" so even though we could have anything we wanted we took fausto's tip and will settle for just having good bikes but with mojo. fausto reckons that you were the man to ask about getting us nice bikes to suit each of us as we are a kind of motely crew"
"the Big Guy is none too pleased with what you have done with your life thus far but if do us good we'll put a good word in for you - we may even leave your name on the guest list for the champagne room in heaven - the place rocks !!!! "
........... what to do?
any of you with ideas as to choosing 4 bikes to suit them taking into account their styles and sensibilites. i'll need your help as i have sinned (oh, how i have sinned) and feel no repent but i really want to meet tullio when my time is up and this may be my only chance. ;-)

|It turns out that Mo is still hanging around in a body that's different than we might recognize. He even brought along Fabio Casartelli to help him out......

|He may need to cross the Red Sea again and bringing the 10 commandments down from the mountaintop will be a bitch clutching it to his chest and riding thin tires.
Jesus should have no problems walking across the water, but may want a trike with a cooler for feeding the masses.
I don't know too much about Muhammad, but lots of his followers wear robes and so I'd get him a mixte just in case he dressed like that too.
All that meditation makes Buddha a natural stoker. I'd like to be Buddha's captain.

|You had better get each one of 'em a really light, really cool, really fast bike 'cause Beazelbub (you know - the guy with the big red horns) rides a cold black Colnago carbonissimo with a red bolt of lightening outfitted with Record 10speed and Lew wheels. If you don't "out cool" the devil, you won't have a chance in hell of meeting Tullio upon your demise.....|

|Colnago w/ Record 10 speed?
Everybody knows the devil rides a fixed gear.

|reviews of their customer service and return policies. Don't forget that they don't like each other much. Jesus may sound like he is in charge, but nobody really knows who is the boss among them... They all may turn out to be just domestiques of some pagan wooden idol from the Easter Island...
Champagne in heaven is not as exciting as you may think - you'll be bored to death there. All the interesting people chill out in hell... Including all those "retro chicks" that you miss...
Some for the Glories of This World; and some
Sigh for the Prophet's Paradise to come;
Ah, take the Cash, and let the Credit go,
Nor heed the rumble of a distant Drum!

|I'm guessing Jesus would ride something very inexpensive and simple. More of a commuter type bike - pure function over form. He did travel by donkey after all. |
Moses would probably prefer a mountain bike with panniers or a bob yak trailer. That way he could get up the mountain (twice) and ride back with the comandments.
Budha I see on a 'bent. He's carrying a bit of extra weight, and he's probably got some back problems as a result.
Muhammed would probably be on a bike filled with C4 or some other explosive.
OK, guess I'm going to hell now too...

|... and encourage them to tour the area formerly known as Palestine hoping to set a good example for the current inhabitants -- both sides.
Buddha definitely needs a Schwinn cruiser, Chicago-built, possibly an Excelsior. For one thing, he needs the exercise, and for another, the strength.
Jesus, well-known as a humble man with no use for finery, should have a soulful old ride, something chipped and scared, needing love from someone who can see thru its cosmetic problems.
