i bought a pair from NYC bikes on line for about $50. they proabably sell them at urbane though. if you already have downtube shifters you can just buy the adapters to run them as bar ends.

hmm.. something about mixing power drills, aluminum rims and percocets seems kind of dangerous to me. Why on earth didn't you just keep the schrader valves? are you crazy?

well I hate presta valves they allway's caused problems for me so I stick with shraders I've do it before with no problems.. the first fixed ride was fun I was slowing down with my legs and brakes I did get bumped off the saddle a few time and when I went to move position on the seat the peddles gave me a reminder but I just had the tooth done so riding so soon was abit stupid so I headed home spiting out blood that ruined the ride abit but it was alot of FUN too

Not me, but one time I saw the Prince-Mobile: it's a bright purple Bentley convertible w/ gold detailing. The man's pimp hand is strong.

I'll have a look through my parts bin and see what I have that's not pooched. You might look at these if you're stuck

Cycle Therapy had a case of Shimano 105 1" loose ball headsets at the old location. If you're interested, I'll try to track them down (we moved, haven't seen them lately).
