    Oh whatever, Mr. "Psst, hey Mike ... can you can get me a quote on a Bareknuckle? It's so blue and unpractical."

    But yes, anytime someone gets a new bike I always have an urge to ponder what could be ...

    Thats a fine question....If memory serves I think they are tigged but not 100% sure. Call La Bicicletta and ask someone there. That bike is crazysteep tho. If it is just for the track..then it would be sweet. For street they are a little too squirrelly for my liking.

    ^^^I smell smoke^^^

    I like the home spun look. Wife says I can get screens for cost. If we wanna go getto thats cool too. Let me get Cypress Hill inspired and I'll come up with some designs using non-typical imagery. Anyone REALLY adverse to Japanese inspirations? I've gone away from MTB....up up up ...down down down....sheesh. If I do a cross/road conversion to my MTB I'll give 'er again on the trails at least once, but I really wanna up the gearing on this ride. The flipped stem, slight seat rise....feels good, much better for carving. Wore through the handgrips, so time to change....now that I don;t need to micro control of a wide bar for the trails... chop chop time. Any grip suggestions?

    I was thinking just for track ... it's a long-term goal but something worth considering.

    I've had a hard-on for marines because they kill everything they see ... wait, that's not right.
    I've had a hard-on for Rossin track frames ever since I saw one like this on eBay some time ago:



    So tigged ... are there any benefits to that (ie. easier to replace a bent tube than with lugged or fillet)?

    Oh, I emailed La B. a few days ago. If/when they get back to me I'll post any useful info. I couldn't find anything about the current Rossin line-up on teh interweeb.

    Damn that's tight....useless on the street, but oh sooo sexy for a track ride. You can't go wrong with Rossin.
    I like the paint too. (pride joke left on my desk)

    Mmmhmm, my commuter is my commuter. I might like something a bit nicer to use on the street some day, but just some random simple Platinum OX/Reynolds 631 offering with geometry I like. Nothing completely over the top because then I'd never be able to let myself lock it up anywhere without every component having a chain around it.

    That being said, it would be nice to have a dedicated track machine as well. It'll be a long way to go until I'm competent on the FCV, but after our initial trip there it's something I can't wait to progress at. I figure I'll rent for awhile, then maybe just use my POS Pake to cut down on costs ... then after a seaon of actual racing I could justify spending $1000 on a bike if I really get hooked.

    Yeah...thats the kind of steep I was talking about. The newer bike may be lugged...I am really not too sure. The really nice thing about having a track only bike is you can leave it at the track in the bike porn room. No worries about bringing yer bike...it is waiting for you.
    Give La B a call on the phone...you will get a much quicker answer.

    Coincidence? I think not.....


    Why do I think Rossin is out of Montreal? I seem to remember the shop that did/does the Tuesday Night Lachine Crits is/was either a Rossin shop or it maybe is/was Rossin itself.

    P.I.M.P. baby



    Regarding earlier posts mentioning Rossin....nevermind..."Lachine's Tuesday night races have being going on since 1978 and its founder, Tino Rossi, should give a lesson or two to all other promoters in North America on how to put on a show and great race."

    My bad, close though.

    last time i was in the store they had a coule on display. from what i remember they weren't that expensive either. from what i gather TIG welding is supposed to look cleaner and produce a superior weld (look at the old Salsa stems for example). as for replacing a tube, i think it would be more difficult than with a lugged frame but i could be way off.
    i've also heard horror stories of those frames rusting away like crazy from the inside (when ridden in the elements). still, i like them, i'd ride one (at least one of the road frames).

    Yes! Nothing like a road bike named after an SUV-great marketing. I'll only buy one if it has 7 cup holders that each fit an exta large slurpee.
