Hey Dave Hickey, Tig, and other fellow Texans:MXL02

Anyone order one of these yet?
Hey, don't encourage them. Texans are obnoxious enough ;-)js5280

Just kidding. I will be in your fair state/country tomorrow. Going to Austin for a week, one of my favorite places anywhere. I'm bringing the mt. bike for a change, so drop me an email if you like to get together for ride. Looks like Rocky Hill, City Park Motorcross Trail, and Muleshoe are must rides, any other recommendations?
Boy, that really hurt...........Dave Hickey

Although, I heard they only come in XXXL and XXXXXXL :-)

Cheers buddy!

Where are you from MXL02? I live in San Antonio. Good to see our fine state represented here, I was beginning to think that only Yankees read this here board
We seem to represented pretty well here.MXL02

I am in Houston, Dave Hickey is in Dallas, and I think Tig is in west Texas somewhere, though not sure. I will be riding in the Alamo Challenge from Houston to San Antonio this weekend. You can't miss me...I'll be the one riding a Colnago Master Xlight in Rabobank Colors carrying a Camelbak full of Chamois butter for liberal use during the ride! :')
Clear Lake area of Houston hereTig

I've lived here most of my life. I've been riding with the Space City Cycling Club and the Wolf Pack for a long time. I'm also one of the original MTB trail builders of the Ho Chi Minh and Jack Brooks Park.

Webster Bicycle, who is selling that helmet, has been our team's sponsor for years. Unfortunately they won't be onboard next year, but we are getting a great deal with the other long time sponsor, Bay Area Schwinn.

Good luck on the Alamo Challenge this weekend. I hope this weather improves for you. The hurricane that will hit Matzalan might kick up some storms unfortunately. Bring plenty of extra dry socks and gloves!
My LBS is getting me one.Dave Hickey

I should have it next week. Are you getting one?
I want one bad, but the $200 is killing me.MXL02
Oct 24, 2002 12:09 PM
My recent expenditures have been pretty outrageous, and my wife is starting the pound the war drums. When I told her I just had to have it she rolled her eyes and walked away. My spousal interpeter device defines that as a bad sign.
;-) We'll see how long I can last.....
X-MAS is coming.Dave Hickey

Tell her you'll keep it wrapped until Dec 25
You read my mind,MXL02
Oct 24, 2002 12:15 PM
That's the plan...hope it works. Thanks
Hello from Waxahachie,Leroy
Oct 24, 2002 12:36 PM
a little south of Dallas. Yes, I was thinking only Yankees and Canadians and the occasional euro hung out here. Fine looking helmet. It will go well with the Texas flag or the University of Texas cycling club jersey.

It would look great with this jersey............Dave Hickey
Oct 24, 2002 1:45 PM
I like this one tooTig
Oct 24, 2002 2:12 PM
From It looks much better than all the other state jerseys they make.
One more Texan here...NPA

Currently in San Antonio, grew up just south of Waxahachie in the lovely town of Corsicana.
Hello from Allen!AFrizzledFry

Just don't wear it across Colorado state lines. nmSintesi

leftovers from the 70's Texan oilmen and lawyer skiersTig

There were some obnoxious Texans back in the boom days that would barge in on Colorado's ski mountains like they owned the place. They came along with their Billy Kidd hats, breaths reeking with alcohol. Unfortunately they gave us regular people a bad name. The many times I've skied in Colorado, no one could tell I was from Texas since I don't have an accent and could actually ski safely!

Actually I think interloping, earthquake/riot fleeing Californians top the Colorado disdain list these days. But yeah, loudmouth Texans do have a special place in Coloradans' hearts.
Don't worry, I go to Utah instead.MXL02
Oct 24, 2002 8:17 PM
Just got tired of expensive fares, long rides to the mountains, and the long lift lines. I have family in Denver so kind of grew up there, and CO is beatiful, but Utah really rocks.

Up here for the Fall before I head back to Pearland. It's nice being someplace with hills besides the Kemah bridge.
Just put some jalapeno's in the baked beans.MXL02
Oct 24, 2002 8:18 PM
Feel right at home. ;)
Yeah, OR you could get a regular red, white, & blue helmetMatno
Oct 24, 2002 5:33 PM
and put a Texas sticker on it yourself. Helmets ought to be in that "most overpriced items" list above. (I'm just bitter because I need a new one and have no money!)

Oh yeah, I'm also a Texan. Born in Corpus, raised just north of Houston. That's where I got started on all this bike nonsense. (I say nonsense because it's a horrible addiction that I'm trying, ok, NOT trying, to rid myself of...)
Only steers and queers come from Texas..julio
Oct 24, 2002 8:04 PM
and a steer wouldn't wear that helmet so that kind of narrows it down...

Just kidding Texans, I've watched Full Metal Jacket a few too many times.
You and everyone else.Matno
Oct 25, 2002 11:03 AM
As a Texan, I can tell you that I've heard that line hundreds of times. Everyone who uses it seems to think that it's original and funny. Maybe I wouldn't mind if Full Metal Jacket had actually been a decent movie, but I just didn't like it...
