Toaday I stopped by the shop where the Jerk works needing a little help. I changed the cassette on my Vanilla and could not for the life of me get it shifting properly. If the top end worked the bottom end didn't and vise-versa. I stopped in to a very busy shop on a Saturday morning and what does the Jerk do? He personally took my bike and worked his magic on it and didn't charge me a cent for the labor! I purchased a set of Cafe Covers for my Speedplay cleats and was on my way to continue my ride. Most shops and shop guys would have said something like "I can have it for you on Wednesday". Not the Jerk, thanks!

the jerk is one of those nicknames. like calling a tall guy shorty. or a short guy stretch. or calling a tall skinny euro-bike know-it-all with a heart of gold the jerk. or something like that.

"did he have a bag over his head to hide his identity?"

Jason

No, but like Tonto protecting the identity of the Lone Ranger, I must protect The Jerk's real identity as well.

I think most of us in the know , know who the Jerk is , but like the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus , we all want to believe that the Jerk is worth keeping as a mystery . I for one want to believe in the Jerk and his sage fitting advice to me to lengthen all my clients stems in the future . Thanks Jerk , we believe in U :banana:

As long as we're ruining the Jerk's hard-earned rep, let me pile on by saying that when some friends of mine recently visited the USA for the first time, the Jerk performed numerous random acts of kindness in helping them find their bearings in New York City.

There are good jerks and there are bad jerks. The Jerk is the former.

I say we give him another chance. Jerk, I need a 60mm stem with a whole bunch of risers stacked end to end so my bars are about 2 feet above my saddle...

Looks like we figured out how to contain the Jerk , HEAP PRAISE UPON HIM or HER . So far we really don't know if the Jerk is a woman , do we for sure know that for a fact .

the jerk is ok...sort of...he won't talk to the doof on the phone unless he gets a credit card number or a paypal after the first minute...but that's all right...all of the important people in doof's life do that....

I tried contacting the Jerk about a BLE. He told me to go "F" myself.

I tell the Jerk I got a job, I'm gonna pay for the BLE
He said "Yeah?" I said "Oh yeah"
And then He was so nice,
Loh' He was lovy-dovy....

And then the Jerk said:

"That don't confront me, long as I get my money next Friday"
