named after a track on my fave artists Autechre's Untilted album, some epic techno tracks on there and sublimit one of my favorite ones.

Avatar - Chris Froome at the TOC, wrapped up against the cold.. I've had a few others but settled on this one.

thanks yes, sometimes need to listen to some of their tracks a few times till you understand them particularly the Draft lp. Untilted and Oversteps are pretty awsome albums, Tri Repetae another good one.

I also love a lot of the techno stuff from like AFX, LFO, Plaid, Arovane The Black Dog and few others.. probably loads of groups I've never heard out there i need to find also.

Yeah! :) I used to be more into that Detroit sound (Mills, Craig, Saunderson, May, Atkins, Larkin, Pullen, Octave One, UR, etc) and European stuff from Tresor, Harthouse, Music Man etc, but I always loved the homegrown, probably more musically intelligent stuff on Peacefrog, Warp and Soma too. /Chinstroking ;)

Well my last name is Oldbornović, and signature is like epitaf for me, but you never knows.

My name is self explanatory.

My sig:

It's a quote from Armstrong after the stage where Andy Schleck stuffed his gear up. The part below is a parody from LOTR. Someone else on this forum thought of it and I tweaked it a little just cause I like to make fun of the chain incident.

they say no man can beat him.

BUT WADA IS NO MAN
A bunch of old men who are half demented and take forever to make a verdict and in the process let people like Kolobnev go free because they're too busy with a fight they can't handle. Does that sound about right?

My dads username was Hafits, I thought Havetts was cooler (10 years ago, I know.. :p).

As for sigs, sigs are for sissies.

My first name is Angus and as noone on the forum seemed to have that name as a user name I thought I'd use it as it would be easy for me to remember. The minimum length of usernames on this forum is six characters so I added a capital W on the end. My surname starts with a W so I thought that would also be easy for me to remember.

My avatar is almost the only digital photo I have of me cycling so I used that as I don't have any particular favourite photos of famous cyclists.

Too many passwords and such... I was dinking around on this forum as I had to post my first opinion in the clinic....and I already had mewmew13 as a username on tripadvisor so just making it easy for my brain.
As I was trying to register it kept spitting back and saying 'name already taken' ???!
I got a little irritated and just kept adding 'mews'...oh well. Then I found out I couldn't really alter my username after that...
meh
:p

at least it's different
Your username reminds me of the Cure's 1987 album "Kiss me, Kiss me, Kiss me", which seems to have a theme of lines running in threes, like the album title, the song title "Hot Hot Hot!!!" and the line from Just like Heaven "Show me, show me, show me...". The Cure also had a song called "The Love Cats" on a different album.

I did wonder if there was some Cure fanaticism that was behind your username, but it seems like it was a coincidence.

Username: It came from a compliment someone gave me while I pedaled my mountain bike uphill. The K in the word cadence is a reference to my initial.
Avatar: It merges my love for cycling and Italian art.

I don't have a signature, haven't found anything that really strikes me.

For some reason I thought 'Parrulo' was Portuguese for parrot or something. Shows you how fluent in Portuguese that I am :p

*runs*

Maybe mew, transcendental energy vampires are all over the place.

My real name is Count Oldbornovsky:D
 
The name is a pun, based on the libertine behaviour of riders for Liberty Seguros (both Spanish and Portuguese). Acting without moral restraint indeed.

The signature is, unsurprisingly, a tribute to Xavier Tondó, who was one of my favourite riders.

The avatar is the latest in a long line, which has included Tondó in Portugal, "Pity 4 Piti" inscribed over a picture of Valverde when he rode for Kelme, Sinkewitz winning a stage in Portugal, Marta Bastianelli's profile picture for Fenixs when she returned, Bernhard Kohl in the polka dot jersey looking like a gormless idiot, German biathlon stars Magdalena Neuner and Miriam Gößner dressed up like Bavarian dirndls because, well, they are Bavarian dirndls, Tondó winning in Catalunya, Darya Domracheva on a cycling tour in Sardinia, and finally Valverde ahead of Evans, the natural order of things. It will probably change again soon.
