yeah I scored a deal on it at the fall bike show... like $80 I think (slightly used)...but BLUE baby!
Had to wait a few weeks for the nitto drops to come in (i got em at urbane)... track bars are sweet I've never owned/ridden a pair before.
I finished building the wheels the first day it started snowing heavy I was still able to toss an old chain and cog on it from the other bike and ride it around for 15 minutes or so and 'unload' the spokes... but I haven't had the heart to take it out in the slop since...*shame*...
ambrosio rims, iro hubs, frame and cranks all came from bikophile!
THAT is what i am coming home for the holidays to? geez...actually, i expect it to be a lot fun, since it does not snow where i am now!
where i am coming from...
we're swappin' hemispheres. sorry fixedude but i probably won't catch you on the rebound.. i get back on jan15 and you'll probably be back by then. i'm hoping to catch some keirin in shizuoka! great pics by the way... japan is damn hilly...
sir robin: your roomie sees my sannino a lot? perhaps there's another one in toronto..??
weasel: nice colour scheme on the iro. naked drops are damn sexy...
Man, I love GT frames. They just look so nice. I would bet they would be pretty stiff for a fixed ride as I find my GT Karokoram mountain bike is stiff-riding. There is a titanium GT track bike up on eBay right now, hrm......
guilty as charged... that was most likely me at bikes on wheels in kensington. actually, i just use their rack to lock up while i go for groceries and coffee!! i guess they're going to nab me next time eh... i've bumped into cavit8 in kensington.. cav, operator, bikeophile and shiznaz and myself have also ridden there to check out parts unknown. otherwise, i haven't seen any other forum members there. whatever happened to "let's meet there for coffee next week in july."
I just read this thread: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...46#post1930746
and it seems they're raffling off 15 pairs of Phil Wood Hubs to 1 lucky winner.
Minimum donation is $50 bucks, I'm pretty intersted and was wondering if 4 other people would also like to chip in $10 bucks with me.
We'd split 3 pairs of Phils each!
I'm not a fan of black hubs or rims. Plus, I've got it on good authority that Santa's bringing me two silver Formula's for giftmas (well, that and the fact that my gf asked me if I wanted fixed/fixed or fixed/free when she was on the phone w/ Business Cycles). Thanks for the idea though - it's appreciated.
haha, I was over at Urbane today talking to a super duper guy named Steve (if your here, I love you!) and he came up with the CRAZIEST/SMARTEST idea ever!
Silkscreen NJS logo's onto T-shirts and making them only for Toronto riders and just wearing em' for fun.
I know its probably illegal/fringing on copyright laws but... dang, NJS is too darn cool!
what do you say guys?
