Just trying to push a few of these Jacksons out the door right now on ebay. Be sure to scope out the auction:
BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in a frame DO NOT buy it on ebay if you can help it. Fucking final value fees are killin' me over here...
57cm boxed Cream with Dark Moss Green lug lining w/ Aerohead lugs!
56cm Boxed Green with Cream White panels and Blue lining!
52cm ST CTT, 53cmTT Matte Black and Hott Pink- SICK!!!
57cm ST CTT, 56.5cmTT Matte Grey with Red front panel and Blue lining!
Other details include: Paul Adjustable dropouts, dimpled rear seat tube, two tone paint job w/lug lining, made from 631 Reynolds, Aggressive track geometry and Drilled fork for a front brake on the last three ONLY. Top 57cm Aerohead one has both front and rear drilling and cable braze-ons with a slightly more lax geometry...
Prices are no joke on these and you can blame that on our wonderful man in charge. Also, keep in mind that a standard plain jane 'off the peg' frame from BJ shipped costs $860 (435₤). These ones obviously have a lot more going on that a boring single paint job. From what I hear Jackson is kinda back up right now. Ours are ready to go right MFing NOW!
Be sure and let me know if any of all ya'll gotst any questions for me...

Let's see what else you could have for about the same or less shall we?
Felt TK2- complete: $661.99 or this one, this one and this one
Vintage Schwinn Paramount T-A-N-D-E-M- complete: $1249
Merlin Ti roadie complete $1250
Now I know none of my suggestions can ever appease the savy Concept chaser but still, maybe they'll get a fuckin' clue one of these days...
Super rare Cuevas!
Massive mirror of a Paramount!
Anyways, I've got something pretty fuckin' awesome coming up soon. Would've had it done by now but the lighting wasn't good and I didn't have enough time to do it justice...

After the initial shock and gaiety subsided, it occurred to me this could just be some sneaky ploy of the snob to get me to do/say/write something ridiculous that he could then use to his advantage when next he felt the desire to mock me. Realizing how unbelievably paranoid and ludicrous the dialog was going through my head, I decided to go back to my original plan for the evening: Watching adult swim and rubbing one out to one of the XXX torrent files I'd downloaded the previous night in
A few hours later with the sweat wiped from my brow and yet another generation amongst the many untold civilizations lost to the ages, I got back to completing this stupid questionnaire...
So here we go:
If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?
I'll have to agree with the snob on this one and go with something more suited towards both off road riding and on. Most likely something in a cross style(ish) bike since I'm just not a fan of Mountain Bikes...
Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?
If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?
I would have to say that one of my favorite rides is from the Manhattan side GW bridge down to 57th street. It's just a nice stretch of green way that isn't too crowded and offers some pretty great scenery. One of my favorite things about the ride would have to be the area where that dude builds those awesome drift wood sculptures along the banks of the Hudson. They're fucking awesome and keep getting better!
What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?
Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrow minded?
Just roadies for me thanks. Besides, my cycling tunnel vision only allows me to focus in on the intricate details of one facet of cycling at a time...
Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.
I've never ridden one and most likely never will. The only circumstance I could imagine that would actually get me to ride one is by gunpoint...
Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?
Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?
This is a really difficult one for me seeing as how I love both ice cream AND bicycles almost equally, hehe.. ug.. God I'm fat.. Okay, I'll stick with bicycles since I haven't really engaged in many other extracurricular activities lately outside of slap boxing the one eyed champ now and again...
What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.
Q) How many ridable bikes do you currently own?
Q) We all love riding, but what are some of the things you hate or bother you about it?
A) Shifting my bits around in the saddle and/or having to let a long fart go while riding a fixie
Q) How many times have you been hit by a car? any injuries?
A) 6 - 0
You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?
Whenever I think of bears I'm reminded of that scene in Borat where the kids get chased off by the one in the ice cream truck. I would undoubtingly act in a similar manner unless of course I had a wasp knife on me. In which case I would stab that bitch in the heart and freeze that shit!
Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.
The Rotten Club
By the way snobby, I hope you have some extra steel wool leftover to help wash the teeny girl feeling that's crawling all over me after writing this fucking post...
