    So I've been helping Dean out by trying to find new advertisers as well as companies that are willing to donate product for members to test. As luck would have it, one of my contacts from Interbike put me in touch with one of the nation's largest distributor of bike parts to bike shops, (you know who, but I can't name them) and they have just offered to send out over $6,000 in free products for members to test and write about!

    So who's got mad writing skills, and a camera?

    I'm game....if you need me.
    What kind of products are we talking about?
    As long as they want an honest opinion of the product I'd be interested. I don't put on as many miles as some but would be willing to be a part of the testers. And if my 400 miles a year isn't what you're looking for I certainly understand.

    Coordinating this will be a logistical nightmare, but we'll get the details worked out one way or another.

    I send you my address. You show up with parts. We spend the day together riding bikes and talking about our lives, loves, secrets I can never tell another living soul. Logistical nightmare averted?

    Anyone else? We all know I'm slack when it comes to testing and reviews.

    I have a camera and am a pretty good reviewer. I've done quite a few on backpacking gear. If I can be of help I'd be honored to offer my services.

    Is that a new vBulletin feature? Sweet!

    Anyway, I've still got the Stuffits to send to Dean for his stinky feet, and the Pedalite pedals for Handsome Ryan, so he doesn't get run over commuting to his new job. As I get more stuff to review, it will get distributed to members for long term testing.

    See, I'm not so bad. :)

    I'm down! If you have any cyclocross products, I would give them a good beating. Ah, crap! I'll be in Afghanistan until July. When I get back, however, I should also have a new mountain bike. (Redline D660)

    So no cycling together? Who am I going to talk about my Dad with? I feel crushed. Will you at least send me a picture of yourself giving me thumbs up and sign it? That would make things a little better.

    What made this truly funny (well, for me) was that I got an email from someone offering to send me something to review, maybe an hour after I posted this. It wasn't until I got the UPS tracking email that I knew they were serious.

    That was just cruel Hack.
    Funny, but cruel.
    So I shouldn't expect a new Jamis to be delivered for testing then, right?
