If you need a stamp keep an eye out for this bike rolling around town.

A 5 person lineup at Urbane is like a 30 minute wait.. good choice.

ROOOTS, BLOODY ROOOTS.

Interesting way to wake up, but I think my neighbours hate me now.

PS. Nothing says "Good morning!" like Sepultura.

That Stamp bike is great! the last picture detailing the handbrake is my fave, Nestor is a genius!

btw yall left sewn leather out of the wraps list, it's the b-0-m-b, hell i'll do it for $50 plus materials, but right now it'd be a month or so you'd be in line, do it yourself, it feels nice and leather comes in all diff thicknesses for as muuck or as lil padding as you want, you can even pad beneath leather though its hard to do

at least you'd be dead after smacking a pinyata filled with nitroglycerin, not covered in poo.

with respect to our discussion on handlebar tape, i got an idea from one of the ladies at urbane yesterday who said she has wrapped her bars with tennis racket grip. apparently it comes in all sorts of leather (perforatted) and costs much, much less than the brooks tape. about $10-15 will do a set of bars. i may look into it when i get back from holidays.

I have had that idea for a while, but if you're going to be wrapping drops the tennis grip tape will be much too short. I was considering buying some to wrap some bullhorns or do a half wrap of some track bars but I don't really need to at the moment.

i think you can by long lengths of it in a roll or something. from what i was told, the rolls are long enough to get to your brake levers, then you tape it off and start again with the end of the tape tucked under the lever hood. i'm sure if you played around with it it would work.

Nice! That's a great idea. The bar tape on my IRO is almost worn out, I'm going to try it out.

I might be up for a morning or evening ride sometime this weekend... Not so interested in the middle of the day though since it's going to be disgustingly hot.

I swapped out the carbon fork for my ol' Kinesis aluminium one and I like this set-up a bit more. I love the 53X16 for now but will be purchasing a 48 tooth next week so that I don't hurt myself. Thanks for all the advice guys, have a great weekend on the streets!
