that's kind of why i didn't hop on my bike and go to china town, would have made the afternoon even longer. instead, i bought some socks and checked out the pre-pride buzz happening on church st. there is a pink fire truck on the street down by wellsley, i love it.

think i may have to get coffee later too. iced americano eh? so is that just long espresso with ice?

So when you stripped it, did you need to clearcoat it or anything? (since its aluminum)
maby thinking of stripping it one or two years down the road. haha

regular double shot of espresso then topped up with ice and water. very tasty. don't try to put sugar in there though.. it won't disolve in the cold water.

Have you been to Bulldog? It's a little expensive, but damn fine espresso-based drinks... plus they do latte art, which is kind of neat.

edit: I think this says something about the espresso quality there. At least for their shot-pulling skillZ.

Although given the state of my cog, perhaps I should consider losing this ring. The only other 144 ring I have is 1/8" and Cavernmech doesn't have any 1/8" in the sizes I need to keep a reasonable gear inch.

Hate to spend my dollars elsewhere but I don't know how long I can put up with this wimpy ratio.

Wicked; I thought it was a sticker, not a stamping and I figgered it might be gone cuz it does kinda look like a repaint. The guy who sold it also rides a Cervelo P3 TT bike, so he is pretty serious about cycling, which might mean it is a Pulse. Wheeeeeee, I would be stoked if that is the case I guess I could ask him, huh?

Paint stripper and a whole bunch o elbow grease to get rid of the paint. A tube of Autosol metal polish and about 2 hours of rubbing.....it works kind of like Brasso...wipe it on...let sit....wipe off. The more you rub the shinier it gets. My frame looked like a mirror when I was done. Re-apply when it starts to get dull.

everyone needs at least 1 campy part on their bike: campy dust-caps for my campy rip-off galli cranks, and campy seatpost bolts.
