    I received a text to report to Van Nuys this morning due to our Sylmar facility being evacuated by the fire. I was at Van Nuys from 9 until around 2:30 when we got the all-clear to return to our building. Took over an hour to get to our building then loaded what was ready and went out and delivered 60 stops. Just got back to the hub. What a day! The best part? It's Taco Tuesday!

    To add a small bit of levity to a really bad news day, Bugs Bunny was banned on STR for a one word post. Apparently "crickets" isn't very funny over there. :whistling:

    Don’t feel bad, the so called Moderator over there deleted my post 3 times.

    Yet the spambots can post like there is no tomorrow.

    Sure you can. I see your $3231 (after sale tax) bike, and offer you this... $2299 after tax, delivered. Oh and it weighs 7 lbs less.... and comes with a fork that costs twice as much, nicer shifter, nicer derailleur, etc... Though it IS a hard-tail :) but still... the value is there.

    Oh on the contrary, they HATE me over there. But I sometimes breathe a little life into the dying embers, and I think the other two people who post there must think it's better than nothing.

    Just don't say Crickets... :mad: :eek: :Roflmao

    Yeah I am just pointing out... plenty of places to find carbon frames on the cheap. If you want to go really crazy, you can go to AliExpress (the consumer side of Alibaba) and buy your own carbon frame direct from Taiwan :) That's where the majority of them are made, anyway :)

    Unfortunately it may not be a good thing. An email circulated that turned into a "send an email to Todd Spitzer and get him to reopen the park" and override the OC Parks. So the park is being forced to reopen early because a handful of people couldn't find anywhere else in OC to ride for the time being. :rolleyes: I miss the Oaks....I'm generally there several times a week. With that said, I'd like to see the park remain closed for a little longer.....allow the park to heal some more. I'll wait a while before I head back in.

    Coachwhip isn't going to be open because the bridge hasn't been replaced.

    I foresee a lot of off trail riding and new trails popping up.
