Btw,
I have a HUGE favour to ask of BF members. I've convinced my friend into trying out fixed. But heís short on money and heís leaving for Brazil at the end of the month. I have everything he needs except for a fixed wheelset.
So I was wondering if it is possible to rent a fixed wheelset from anyone here for about two weeks?
Anything will do.
Thanks!
if my fuji track comes in this wednesday (according to the shop's ETA), then u can borrow my wheels. i wont be using them anyway!

yea, great ride tonight.

STEEKER, that would be wicked if we get a nice big group of people out on the spit with your telescope for some stargazing.

Is anyone going to the alleycat on saturday?

When I got home I tightened up my BB and now that infernal creaking is gone.

I want to get a track bike and start racing at the velodrome.

That's good that you got that creaking under control

Let's hope there's a good turn out for Tuesday Night CV...

Hmmmmm. thats odd. My Fuji rep here in Toronto has told me they do not have any more Fuji Track model's and will not be getting any more this season. When did you order it? I wouldn't be surprised if it gets delayed. Are you getting it local or online?

niice... I'm gonna work on some different bike/wheel/cog configs as graphics then the text. There's a fixie gallery site with an awesome bike drawing. So simple but well executed.
I like the across the shoulder tat...that's where my "Rude Boy" should go for me. Also in gothic.

I saw some awesome metal looking stuff on a guys elbow a few years ago..... I can't afford that super kinda work. I'd love to create some cybernetic looking stuff using shadows to create depth and relief.

Steeker ... why you want a sock company across your back though? just teasin' G.

I'll check with my wife as to some more reasonably priced athletic wear.
Can we submit files to the wool jersey people for the logos? Nice shirts.
(personally I'd rather get some form of tech wear screened locally, but that's just me.)

The gf just went in to approve her next tattoo design a few days ago. It's a full back piece that'll be going up onto her shoulder/around her ribs to the front as well. Old Japanese watercolour style of song birds sitting on tree brances with some of the leaves blowing off (that'll be the part that goes around her body).

First session is in July - 7 hours straight (damn, woman).

Pseudo examples of style:

Probably around a grand.

Edit: I think the guy charges somewhere between $120-$160/hour.
