speaking of d-bag drivers, i was at yonge and st. clair on one of the side streets that has a ton of bike parking, and this lady was having a hard time getting her car out of everyones way as she wanted to wait for something at the side of the road, some guy had to wait probably 10 seconds to get around her, then as he finally is able to, he guns it around her, his passanger yells out "learn how to drive!" at the top of his d-bag lungs and they promptly crash into the car right in front of her waiting to turn onto st. clair

one of the funniest things i've ever seen, i mean the timing between "learn how to drive!" and them crashing was impeccable.

on a side note, does any place in toronto stock this:


Park Tool SW-15C 3-way Internal Nipple Wrench

  • Innovative three-way wrench with a square socket and 5mm and 5.5mm hex sockets to fi internal spoke nipples
  • Thin wall sockets to fit in the tight surroundings of most rims

great!
WE stock that ****.

Edit: Precisely because I needed to build my shamals. lawl.

I shattered my left when I hit the stump. It looks like the Craigslist TIME pedal hunt/challenge is officially on!

I've had this frame sitting around since last summer. I just got it back from Jet-Kote today. Finally, I can use up some of my parts bin that won't be used on the Stratos NJS I'm working on. This is just an IRO Angus for thrashing around town.

Acceptable considering the price. Had I been seeking perfection, I would have gone to Noah (and paid much more).

got caught up digging up my friends backyard...........for the entire day...

I'll def try to make it out this coming week tho. Does that wrench fit the eyelets tho from the outside rim? I have read mixed reports about the wall thickness for the wrench.

anyone have links to cheap tubulars?

Vittoria Rally are about the cheapest tubulars. I remember buying them at D'Ornellas for several $ less than Urbane. $39 vs $44 iirc.

yeah i saw what was up on PBK, just wanted to get something local!

D'ornellas is great btw, just that i can't afford anything in there.

Racer Sportif has a Vittoria tubular with Kevlar and its gumwall which is perfect and $25.90, just been too busy to get out there tho...

if i manage to snag one/pair, i'll post it up.

I took a ride on tubes for the last week and im a convert. Vittoria = good, continental Giro = bad.

stay away from that giro tire. but even with its hap-hazard quality control, the entry level tubes i tried are a significant difference from the clinchers I am used to using.


btw, krusty, are those armadillos on ur most recent build? lookin good.

Conti Gatorskins. I installed them on that pair of Miche wheels last year. I always meant them for this project, but didn't follow through until this year. I prefer tubulars as well. 2 of my bikes (soon 3) have them. Years ago, I tried a pair of Dugast silk tubs. Those have spoiled me for life when it comes to tires. If you ever win the lottery, try some.
