At some point today I need to track down a dual pivot front brake that I can slap on, but then I'll be out and about tonight after 7pm if anything's going on. The temporary saddle is an old San Marco Rolls (yellow) that will likely get replaced by a ridiculously expensive Brooks Swift (honey/brown/black? dunno).

    Awesome! Can't wait to see it. You've got my cell number I think, so give me a ring if you want to hook up. I think I might drop by the shop and say 'hi' anyway. Do have my brake lever, ya bastard?

    i agree.. it's totally up to customs if they open up a package or not. i've been burned and i've got away with stuff too. i think they're more prone to open large packages too. what sucks is that it's up to whomever is checking the package to put a value on it. oooh look! carbon! must be expensive. $$$$.

    tip: UPS uses customs brokers which charge a large handling fee.

    yeah, i like that set up too. those mary bars are the **it. i'd love to get a pair for the new pink bike. not sure what's going to come of that brand though. i heard gaansari is closing its doors and gary is going to work for ritchey.

    i'm too excited about this build; i'm taking the afternoon off to finish it.

    As long as it is a 3 piece master link that is o.k. I had some guy come in the shop with a shredded rear wheel.....he used a sram 3/32 chain on his fixie with the sram powerlink. The first time he gave a hard back-pedal the crap came right off and wound itself between cog and spokes. Not pretty.

    i've used them with no problems, but i cavernmech is right, use the kind that have to be installed with a chain tool, not the bmx masterlink style you can take off with pliers.

    I've got the sram removable link on all 5 of my bikes, including my 2 fixies, and one SS mtb. Never had a problem with any of them, and I love being able to pull the chain off quickly to clean it.

    did i say 80' bridgestone? i meant olde-tymey highwheeler. i'm waxing my handlebar moustache as we speak, and doing squat thrusts in preparation for riding my velocipede (it came with new fangled nuematic9sp) tires).

    yeah it's a 67, like i said i'm long-legged; there's still a good 6-7" or seatpost showing.

    That might be cool. So the meeting spot is around here, right? -> http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&hl=en...,+toronto&om=1
