    Ok, so I messed up. It's a long story but the hubs were mislabeled. Anyhow, they're not $80, more like $180. Sound a bit better? Not like anyone was rushing out to get them anyhow.

    Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up

    hehe I couldn't help myself
    I still need to get the frame prepped (the seat tube needs reaming, as does the head tube and your mom. The bottom bracket shell also needs to be tapped and chased).

    ...I just realized looking at this photo that even my valve caps match. Hooray for Continental!

    Q: anyone know if Bikes on Wheels, Cavern, Urbane, etc. have a Sugino 75 BB in stock? I'd like to buy one locally if possible.

    Also, as far as cheap-but-not-crap chainrings go, I was thinking Salsa - anyone feel the need to steer me away from that decision?

    Have fun today, everyone - it looks like it's going to be nice weather all day (high of 10 degrees). My ass is going to be kickin' out the jams (mother****er) at the shop.

    We'll come visit you eyefloater. What!! The picture changed!

    Hey Shiznaz, pg 9 Holiday 2005 Pedal issue has a small biography on your maker (your Cyclops that is).

    I'm runing about 15 mins late.

    Just a thanks to Cavernmerch for suggesting Byers-Bush they definately seemed to know what they were doing and talking about and the turn around time I was coated was only 3 or 4 days which seemed awesome.

    I have a secret surprise for all of you when my bike is done, I will only hint now that it may be described as "JAM"

    Anyone here chopped a brooks before? I'm seriously considering trying to do it myself. I've read most of the guides I could google find on the net but if anyone has one that was particularly good please post it.

    I can't believe I was hanging out in front of Moonbean in a shortsleeve t-shirt today, quite comfortably. In fact, I was a little too warm. mmm.. sunshine.

    Good ride today guys. I got a Columbus tubing cycling cap and some rock climbing stuff from MEC. As I was leaving MEC I saw a girl with a black fixie who turned out to be none other than our very own 32flavors. Hows that for stalking?

    You didn't just spell it "break" did you? Now I can't talk to you anymore.
