    I never heard from Matt last night, but I'll give him a call around noon today. As soon as I know what time he wants to ride, I'll post it.

    Hey anybody,
    are you missing a bike, a Fuji track bike maybe? I may have some info for you, not the bike. PM me.
    I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.

    ok, so in the not too distant future bike polo will be part of the fun in st. pete. the few people i've talked to think thurs would work the best (myself included). we're thinking crescent lake tennis courts since they have lights on at night but the location isn't set in stone. we just need to find/build some junkers and it will begin.

    So I just read about every message in this thread and I am really excited about this little community of yours.

    I think I need to defend myself about some of the comments that were posted about me. I like to talk about bike parts to other people who know about them. I don't really get to meet to many people that are into bikes so when I was talking about dura ace cranks it probably came off as bragging. I guess I am a bit of weirdo so I apologize for that but I don't think I am much of a mystery guy. I am a bit of a hermit...work, eat, ride bikes, sleep, read stuff, occaisonally ride skateboards, watch basketball and the o.c. on television, etc. Sometimes I get bored and decide to get drunk at the emerald where apparently all of you hang out. so anyways sorry to come off kind of crazy.

    by the way, that olmo got stolen from me early january....so if anyones sees it...

    I am currently without a track bike and riding that de rosa. and yes I was bragging about that last night but she is my baby. I really don't like riding it but my current project bike has no funding after buying that other bike to replace my olmo.

    Still it will do if anyone wants to go on a ride this week. I have been meaning to back out to fort de soto. Something about bypassing the toll booth that I really like. I work downtown in the Suntrust bank building and can meet anytime after 4 or so and be ready to go. Gotta train for the upcoming race. Are we placing bets?

    also I really like that white selle san marco pro saddle...she's a beauty.

    I have no idea what you just said, but I'm glad you're planning on racing in the alleycat.

    I personally don't believe bars need to be taped...especially not here in florida but it really helps when it is cold.

    No worries, dude. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of us her could be pigeonholed into the 'weird' category.

    Are you usually wearing a black and yellow Cinelli cap at the Emerald? I haven't said hello because I'm anti-social.

    Todd, some guy called 'Matt' and myself are going to ride around downtown around 5:00 tonight if you're down..

    Why the heck not? Most of us ride geared bikes too. I don't think anyone in this town is a fixed-gear-only-no-brakes-allowed elitist snob. At least I hope not. I would give 10 times more respect to anyone who rolled up on a unicycle than even the prettiest track bike in the world.

    Nice to meet you tonight Matt. Thanks for coming out and riding with us...I mean sitting with us. We'll have to do it again soon. I won't bring up the stolen bike next time.

    Okay, yeah, I've seen you up there and probably at Cafe Alma before. Next time I'll let you buy me a beer.

    I can't believe your Olmo was stolen. What the ****ing hell? If I hear anything Matt, i'll let you know asap.

    It was nice meeting you. Hopefully we can ride more. Your De Rosa is a babe. I would kill someone for your Campagnolo Delta calipers. Oh man.

    Polo would be super sweet also! However... I work until 6 on Thursdays, so if it is before I can't come. Hopefully it happens though. Polo is most amazing.

    And i'm crying right now because I just lost a NOS pair of 80's Campy record hubs laced to Mavic OR 10 rims. The bid ended at $118. I have a serious curse.

    i think the plans were to have polo start around 6-7 since it we'll have more daylight pretty soon. also, the courts are lit up so it's not too big of a deal if it goes on at night. man that wheelset would've been a steal for that price!
