There is a word for such an arrogant, haughty, conceited, disdainful, overbearing, pompous, condescending, superior, patronizing, imperious, proud, snobbish, snobby, smug, scornful and sneering attitude, but I like all of these synonyms better. (OK, OK, I am trying not to be these things, whether it appears so or not.)

 Yeah Bob, far as I can gather(from my two seconds of research), the TWIN leading shoe(not 'win') were fitted to Lightning,Spitfire and Firebird ('L','S','F') from '68 till the Conical season, but this isn't even a TLS.... *????*

 I dunno what hub/brake that is and don't even care, thing is the words kindov may be fitting with something, but they don't really seem to gel with this bike

Only thought these words might apply to the seller B'macc originally outed. The others probably don't deserve so much criticism.  With regard to swallowaing a thesaurus, believe me, it was much easier than the T-Rex.

I'm glad I said "the" T-Rex. Should have avoided confusion.

Anyway, I thought the band was more amusing in their pre '70 Tyrannosaurus Rex days, when they sounded like the chipmunks.

I'm so misunderstood! But, if it makes for more laughs, I guess my job is done.  *smile*

For a second there, I completely forgot what we were talking about. So, the message is, as with everything, buyer beware.
