Any inbreeding there? If my math's right, we're already up to six, plus a thumb. Is that thumb opposing? Is there more to your screen name than you're telling us?

Your bikes have brakes? What do you use them for?

Seriously I keep 2 fingers on the lever, but only end up using one, Its enough for a stoppie, so Its enough. Stainless lines rock!
