    Maybe I've completely blanked on a previous post but could describe the pain you're experiencing, Steeker?

    Things got started a little late. I left at around 9:00 when the auction was just getting started. Gold sprints were supposed to follow. They were set up for it anyway.

    BTW is that a home grown set up or is it possible to get the Gold sprints program somewhere?

    well there is no chaffing and the odd riding boil never bothers me much , . description hmm guess you never played laccross and got drilled with the ball ? ok best I can come up with is that I might be having a longer adjustment period with fixed riding it sort of feels like when you have done your first century . maybe I might need a different type of seat ,I have driven bikes to work all year round for over 30 years with no problems mountain bike road bike off road trail riding bush riding snow/ice riding, it might be that my legs are in constant motion opposed to resting on a free wheel and that means moe pressure in the crotch area with my regular seats,, sooo aretheses brooks seats a better option/ sorry for the long post

    I was just sitting in class at Baen and I looked at my bike and noticed a bulge like an inch from the headtube lug on the downtube. I felt it and it was not smooth, then I said **** and the prof looked at me.

    Then I left.

    Okay the Operator Emergency Fund gets first dibs at the Cycle Therapy secret basement stash.

    Dude, that sucks. That bike was an awesome find. Maybe Malcolm at Biseagal or Mike Barry can save the day?

    that is kinda below street level. and for $8 bucks you get to sit in front of this HUGE pan,

    She just lets it cook and stew for about 15 mintues.
    its AMAZING!
    especially in the winter.
    and for an extra dollar, you can order sticky rice to throw onto the pan after you are done.
    So you basically flatten the rice in the pan to make a rice pancake and let it soak up all the marinating sauce and stuff...
    amazing stuff as well. and you feel quite satisfied afterwards. oh. and on the menu it says tips & tax included
    good times.
    Where exactly is this place? I would love to check it out and gorge on some Korean BBQ...

    I usually go to Yummy Bar-B-Q for some good and cheap Korean BBQ eats!

    Hey Operator, sorry to hear about your downtube...

    The source of the mystery creak has been found. My condolences Operator. I will poke around here also and see if I have anything for you. What size is the Bianchi? If memory serves that bulge has been there awhile no? Malcolm or Mike could do a tube replacement for you no probs. I have known Mike forever and will take it up there and get you a good deal if you decide to go that way.
    *Cue sombre music*
    Also any who don't wish to take their bikes, but need to ride down here on Velodrome day, can leave em here at the shop.

    Something that occured to me this morning: could someone bring a pedal wrench when we head down to Forest? I'm not sure if any tools will be available.

    Will my eggbeaters and mountain shoes be good enough for the track or should I bring my track pedals w/ clips and straps (the problem being I have no stiff soled shoes). Also sorry to hear about the bianchi rob... How did you notice it was broken while you were in class?

    eggbeaters will be fine. I will be bringing the "track" tool kit.
    I also need to know bike numbers so I can install extra racks if needed.

    Got another Forest City question: I took a look at some photos of the track and noticed a lot of (actually all) people wearing a lot of clothing, ie. tights/arm warmers/vest/etc. Is that for protection in case of a fall or because the temperature at the track is frigid?

    Edit: no bike for me. I'll save the Pake from certain death until I can destroy it at a worthy speed.

    Most of the equipment used is off the shelf stuff ie: rollers and support stands. The tricky part is having a program that can read the roller sensor. It spins at such a high rate a special program is needed to read the sensor output accurately. Navid and John had quite a few glitches in the system that had to be worked out before it was reliable. I have access to an old school set-up with a 2 hand dial for distance but it is rollers only....no support stands.
