Tell me what you think.



Hey th at looks pretty good. Seat is at a slightly weird angle...

Heheh, yeah, I know, don't ask me why, but that is the most comfy for me. I sit my coccyx right at the very back so there is no pinching of the ol'vas deferens

Yeah, me neither Sorry to post a geared bike here, but it was more about the coating than the gearing

No, I left the fork as it is because I like a chrome fork with this style of road-bike. It could use a re-chroming, but I think that is kind of expensive, so I just bought a new aluminium fork and will get it set up this summer sometime. I could have had the fork sandblasted and coated, but it just wouldn't have looked as good, I thought.

the chrome fork looks pretty sweet on the ciocc. i swapped out my red track fork for a chrome one that's drilled for a front brake... it doesn't look half bad staying with that old school colour scheme. any idea if you're going to replace the rear hub, cog choice, etc.?

Hrm, hadn't really thought about it. I was just going to find a full rear-wheel on eBay, hopefully with a flip-flop so I can switch back and forth. Any suggestions? I am going to aim for something cheap because I may not like the fixed style. I ride downtown only and fixed might be a bit dangerous. I am a fairly experienced rider, but I think that riding fixed will take a lot of practice.

Hey guys! Those LEVEL COMPONENTS hubs are ready! They are being shipped from level to me this week. We should have them in stock by mid next week. So for those who were interested, either drop me a line, or stop by and see Keith at Cavern Cycles

Have a great week!

Nope that's CAVERNMECH, but Keith is the only shop in Toronto who carries the LEVEL Hubs. I am ROB from Bikeophile (and I am the distributor for Level)

Bikeophile is run by a buddy of mine named Rob. He does mail order/internet sales. I run the Cavern and Rob and I do business together. I help him out with tech stuff, mechanics and the like. We are both small operators and kind of joined forces as we dont have the clout of the big shops when it comes to buying power. Generally speaking we both carry similar lines but with Rob doing all the on-line stuff. It has been a good arrangement allowing us to serve people in a retail environment and on-line as well. This has also allowed us to join forces in our pursuit of the hand-built custom track bike line we are currently working on. Hope this clears up any confusion. K.

nice, the level hubs are the ones where the cog bolts to the hub body instead of threading onto it right?? (like a disc rotor)

how much are you selling them for? I'd like to check em out.

The MSRP for the Rear Hub (From the Manufacturer is $220USD). We have talked to them have been able to offer them for $205 CANADIAN.

The Front Hub will be selling for $125 Canadian

As of today, Level has not shipped the order to us yet. So I am not sure the exact date they will be in. Hopefully within the next week or two. I know that there are folks (like Shiznaz) who want wheels by Keith, so the day they arrive there will be stock given to Cavern.

You can check them out on level's website (www.levelcomponents.com)
or check them out on my site under HUBS
