With the exit of my Big Knobby Squad numberplate business back in 2005 it is time to move on from my Big Knobby screen name. That, and I live in England where a "knobby" or "knob" is a male sexual organ.

I changed it to FaithBMX to go along with my current Christian based racing program.

Different name; same useless UCI points trivia.

Carl, you will always be Big Knobby. Big Knobby existed before number plates, it will continue on. Carl without Big Knobby is like Carl without a cruiser.
As for the English definition, oh well. That doesnt apply to you either, just like reading your posts where you say "Mates"... It just dont fit the Texan I know! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

Makes perfect sense. I always laugh about "twittering" given a "twit" in the UK is a dimwit or idiot!

Nice replacement name and your UCI stuff is The Best.

Be well.

Hey Carl,

In the UK, being a big knob also refers to a person of high stature or rank....
which is how you are regarded in the UK and US BMX community...

Are you changing names on Talk too?

Yeah, I need to; just don't have the direct line with Talk like I do with Carruth.
