Insert pun about CPU clock cycles...
Joke about AMD Drivers here
I love that cruiser. Always loved those things.
TDP was too high.
These look ****.
The only good thing about a $299 full suspension MTB, is that you don't have to buy it.
Who are those bikes for?
For AMD fanboys? No, they won't touch it because a bicycle is too large to easily put way unlike "normal" merchandise (you know, tshirts, keychains, pens etc).
For cyclists? No, they won't touch it because the price makes it obvious that they come from the falls apart faster than the promises of a politician who has won an election category.
- Buy cheap bike.
- Cover with unused AMD case stickers that have accumulated in the bottom of a drawer over the years.
Aye, they look very much like what are known as BSOs (bike-shaped objects).
Am I the only one thinking there is a subliminal meaning to this?
Maybe telling someone to get on their bike?
Given that's a specifically British colloquialism (after Norman Tebbit invited the jobless to get on their bike to look for work) I think it might just be you.
Maybe they're just trying to encourage us to get up off our fat asses and leave the pc once in a while.
Not sure selling us shitty bikes is the way to do it
They are heavier, and thus will burn more calories.
That's about $299 too expensive.
It came out of Wales in the 19th century.
Yes, it's a British saying but you know? these days word travels around the world and we tend to use a lot of phrases and sayings from other countries.
Is it April already?
No, it didn't - and if you're going to post Googled folk etymologies, maybe read the whole paragraph to see the punchline of the joke: "The advent of the bicycle was a godsend and many a you [sic] man was told to 'get on your bike' when be [sic] came calling on his 1st cousin once removed. So it was a quick pedal over the hills and far away to find a fresh wife."
It was coined by Norman Tebbit, but only in the sense it meant "to take action." "On your bike" meaning "go away" is older, dating to the 1960s (not the 19th century, or even close to it) - but no, it has nothing to do with Welsh inbreeding and the avoidance thereof.
