    I'm not sure if vintage Italian was what you're looking for, but Serotta's are an American bike.

    Anyone have any secret remedies for arthritic pain (specifically, arthritic hips)? Other than advil, I could use a tip.

    TYlenol has specific arthritic pills which are good plus you could also get anti inflametory from your Doctor or you could swing by my place and I could give you some PERKS ( no pain after those )

    i realize they are made in the US (california i believe); i just wanted to know if the early models were worth buying and if they used quality tubing. can't imagine they would use crap tubes and weld them to campy dropouts...

    It's a Crohn's thing. Crohn's disease is an auto immuno disorder where your body's immune system attacks itself. Predominantly, Crohn's disease attack the mucous membrane of your digestive tract, but it can also affect other mucous membranes. In my case I sometimes get pain in my hips from the inflammation Crohn's causes.

    Doctors are useless when it comes to not-quite-chronic pain. They just tell me to get over the counter drugs, which is why I sometimes asking "whoever" if they have any recommendations. I'll try those Tylenol ones.

    Oh, my Sugino 75 BB showed up today. That's the last tricky part I needed for the Pake. *glee*

    No, just a peculiarity of my case. I've had it for 16 years now, so my diet doesn't encounter too many surprises.

    the kid across the street has the same thing but he gets the pain centered in the top of his chest extremly painful, the Perks are a heavy duty pain killer I use till they fix my back but they are not over the counter but you could ask your Doctor about the Perks (oxycocet) <--- that's the offical name

    I have psoriasis, which is also (contrary to what most people think) an immune disorder. It can also cause arthritis. It's never gotten bad enough for me to do anything but pop a couple advil and make sure to keep my joints warm / moving however. I hear you about doctor's not caring enough about anything like that though... although I started going to a new doctor a year or two ago and I just complained about a couple small aches and creaks and he sent me for like 924839283489 x-rays. The people at the clinic were asking whether I'd been in a bad car accident or something and were totally confused when I told them I hadn't really "hurt myself". Strange guy. Dirty office too. Don't see him anymore.

    serottas are very nice bikes. you probably do have columbus. get more information from www.serotta.com/forums. people are nice there too. i have a serotta TI and ti's great. also had a wonderful steel CRL but i crashed it; you can see how the front impact affected the top tube and downtube, you can have that frame for free if u want a really really cheap beater. anyway, u won't regret it. great bikes.

    So..... what goes on at these Crit Vacuum rides? Is this a fixie thang or are us gearies invited as well?
    There's a high school right accross the street from Castlefrank station, and that's their field...

    But it would be awesome if some people made a dirt track out of it.

    And I'm pretty sure that everyone is welcome on the Critical Vacuum rides.

    Re: Critical Vacuum rides, definitely everyone is invited. My friend Marwan came on Saturday with a fat-tired geared mountain bike. Usually it goes ride-doobiebreak-ride. Hope to see more people next time. There were enough of us this last time out that people kept commenting from the side of the road...

    "Hey, a bike gang!"

    "Hey, it's like... a bike-a-thon or something!"

    (less than a block later...) "Hey, it's a ****ing telethon!" (Buh?)

    So what kinda riding style is to be had here? I heard that the most recent CM was quite a bit quicker than most. LOL@track-fall

    Codeine
    Fentanyl
    Hydromorphone
    Meperidine
    Morphine
    Oxycodone

    There's a few off the hit list that I've been on. My problem is I'm "opiate tolerant" so a lot of standard issue pain meds (ie. Percocet/Percodan) like you mentioned don't work well on me.

    Operator, I'll try that copper ring and let you know how it goes. I may need you to check the fit for me though. I'm not sure exactly how snug things should be.

    Hopefully I'll be out next time. A little bit of evening riding sounds like fun.

    How about med to heavy ball-peen hammer? Just kidding bud...damn that sucks, the guy at my wife's work is in his mid to late 20's as well.

    SO....check out the track, there is no way a school still runs on that track....no way no how. I've had my aerial photography experts have a look and it's either a dead track or a mobile chemical warfare factory.



    I'm liking the idea of creating jumps and berms and such if we can get permission from the school.
    It seriously doesn't look like it's been used in years. I'm gonna check it out.

    So will you be out next time, Operator? Heh. Traffic Jammer, it's just a fun ride around town. We go about 20 km/hr. And our route is somewhat improvisational. It's like the faster, doobie-ful version of Critical Mass. Hence the moniker.

    P.S. I might not be able to track-stand very well, but I OWN the track-fall. You can ask Shiznaz to corroborate.
