Whoa this thread really went off in a new direction. Why does every conversation with your generation end up on Hitler?

How is it going in The Socialist Republic of Cali? I worry about an accountant who lives in a high tax state and works in a no tax state. How does that pencil out?
Better schools, better trails, better skiing, must I go on? Don't let the tax tail wag the dog.......

So your good at your job. Will we get rich with a real snow bike? Have you ordered a tire for the death machine? I will buy your tire and rim just so we can go ride together. I just bought a third ski set up.

To bring this back to Hitler and Interbike, we bought a handful of 2xl tires. Mine came in 2 days. The retailer was told a month from the wholesaler. He called Vee and got them in a week. Is this a sustainable model for retailers? Is the industry at risk?

We are in Susanville and I love the guy. I have seen him fix unworthy bikes for worthy people. However he couldn't go to Interbike becuase he had to keep the shop open. Isn't this the guy who Interbike is for?

So in my picture hear Padok lecture my mom in your best Sargent Shultz accent: You were not suposed to fly over the river into the newly militarized zone, we are both going to get in trouble!" And that knowing devious look from my mom is saying: "Yea, but I am now the first Britttsh woman with a Silver C." Go ahead an laugh beause these guys are the redbull athelets of their day, nothing more. It wasn't until the next year the school was taken over by the "annoying bookkeeper" who couldn't even fly himself. The bookkeeper even had control over the brain trust like Wolf Hirth who had my mom transalate his book to English. (I fly a Shemmp-Hirth glider today.) Her diary ends when the best and brightest loose control of their own school, and her and her boyfriends being interrogated by the Gestapo. It is up to the reader to conclude the day came when it was the anoying little bookeeper who ordered these guys to throttle up in anger.

You guys are probably the most familiar with how the far east section worked. A few of them already made something with a single swing arm that I was interested in. My job was to buy something off the floor to make prototypes and then pay them to produce it. The ugly American thing didn't endear me with them and they wouldn't take my money or give me the time of day. However they now send me emails wanting to do business?

I did hook up with one wonderful place, no prototyping, but full of promise.
