I think this one would be a good fit for you...I can tell! Keith rides a 58-59 normally and this one fits him like a glove.

I am very bummed myself, because I had planned on building up one of these for myself as well, and its too big. Oh well c'est la vie

Hey Cav, I actually have one here that isn't all ZONA like the rest of them...THIS one has Columbus MAX on the chainstays...so even better..but the SAME price...

Don't PM me unless you want to be tempted even more! We've decided to sell these for our cost basically to allow us to to put in some more orders of other sizes, since we originally had demand for a bunch of 56cm frames, and the dimensions we actually got ended up being more like 58cm like I mentioned.

Anyways, bikeophile, do you know if keith has shipped the wheels I ordered from him? If they don't get here by the 1st of july I won't get to use them until I get back to Canada, which means I'll just have extra luggage and the shipping of the wheels will have been a waste. I would assume they are on the way because I paid for them on May 12th, but I haven't been able to get in touch with Keith for quite a while. Thanks!

Shiz...please take lots of pics and bring back souveneirs! I am so envious of you! Have I mentioned that yet? One of these years I'll be there for the Tour. Maybe when Lance Armstrong's son is riding the Tour


On the wheel front, I am not sure if he shipped them...I do know that he was looking into the prices on shipping a while ago, but not sure what happened after that. PM me if you want his email address. Personally, if he HASN'T shipped them (which I have no idea), I would tell him to keep them here...the last thing you need is a new wheelset getting banged up on the way home after just getting them. I know for sure that they were built...I saw them looking sweet in the shop a while back.

Bikeo, what's the plan for tomorrow (Thursdays ride at 3:30?)?

Here's a picture of my original fork that I exploded back in April.

yeah 330pm sounds good, how about we meet at the Wheat Sheaf again. Any suggestions on a route? We all know that our destination will be Kim Moon, but where do ya feel like riding first?

Head to the path and head West for a while and work up an appetite?

I am heading to the 1245pm showing of WAR OF THE WORLDS...so I should be getting there just in the nick of time!

Hey guys! Fun ride today! what a scorcher! Once we got out on Lakeshore it was much nicer though...quite a head wind on the way back...we only did around 30km I think..but the Pork Buns were awesome as usual!!

So tomorrow is the Chin Picnic races...According to the midweek club there races start at 8am tomorrow, but I think there may be a race starting at 730am..

I am planning on heading there for 8am...anyone want to go?? If so, bring a lock for your bike and meet me at the Corner of Yonge and the Esplanade at 730am and we'll ride over together.

If I don't see anyone at 730am I will head there myself. I will have my cell (the number is listed on my website) also.

Seeya tomorrow maybe

so, I was doing a little research on Grenoble (I am going there on the 2nd), and I found the site for their Palais des Sports, which is a kind of professional multisport center with a nice full size wooden banked velodrome. Anyways, their website is made in flash and terrible, but the photos from their annual 6 day track races are hilarious. Its like track racing meets cabaret meets cirque de soleil meets rock concert meets fine dining. The pictures will explain what I mean. Essentially bare bones track bikes and bare titties. I can't link directly, so just go past the intro to the main part of the site and click on '6 jours cyclistes' and then go through the sections and click on the images on the right.

I wish I was there when this was going on but I'll bet the tour will be even more crazy so no biggie.
