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.

OK the pictures are in, although some of the pictures didn't turn out as good as my bike did.
