What does Wa-hay mean? I have seen you use it in a variety of ways...

A general noise of enjoyment and pleased surprise at achievement. Say it loudly, with a big smile for maximum effect. Like hurrah, but doesn't need a crowd.

Ah, I see...but why did you say it when I made a version of your avatar that you thought made you look like a geek? You said "Wa-hay-I'm a geek!"

Because I am?

Think of it as Bart or Homer saying woo-hoo! - some emotion, different accent.

I do have a minor question, was I a vote? it's just I honestly thought that the urban cycling one was a far better instructable compared to the tricks one... Durrrrrr stupid question, I am in the voting section... Still all the same the other two were far better 'ibles IMO...

Would you look at that...I'm a runner up. I didn't even have final photos up yet (I have them on my camera and will be downloaded when the good computer is available). I'm on my Ipod so I can't really upload anything yet. Congrats to all the winners.

You may not have final photos of the bike back together, but the frame painting was covered.

I know, but it looks a lot better now with all the wires and shifters on it. I'll get those pictures posted in the hour, be sure to check them out.
