my friends went and capitalized on G&S Dye's one week sale and now we have a screenprinting rig.
I was wondering if any has any awesome designs/logos on a format like pdf or stuff like that cause we're looking for something to print.
All I have so far is some hub designs, njs logo, and the pentabike design.

I've got some NJS and other fixie logos in development for use on t-shirts and such. We should swap designer shirts...

There was a sale on screening gear and you didn't tell us? Now you're not getting any of my vector goodness.

Hey cavernmech, what do you have in stock for 1" threaded headsets? Anything Campy or Shimano.



"My Nuts are NJS Certified" = Toronto Fixed Group Official T-Shirt

You know, I read that and then immediately Europe's "The Final Countdown" started playing in my head. I think that means it's ****in' on, chump.

So when the last Johnny Cash album (American 5: A Hundred Highways) came out I wasn't so sure about how I felt about it. The whole "The music Johnny Cash wanted you to hear" marketing thing irked me. I have to admit though, "God's Gonna Cut You Down" is a pretty amazing song ... so in the end I'm glad that album was released. Where's this going? Absolutely nowhere, just an observation.

Unfortunately competing "factions'" of race organizers don't get along too well and there won't be Goldsprints. That may change but right now I would say no.
If there are I will take you on.

factions? that's pretty sad for a community of about 25 people (including racers and organizers).

I hate people.

for anyone interested: there will be a fixed gear ride on sunday starting at Balzac's in the Distillery District at 10am that will be about 100km or so. i think the idea is to go up to kettelby and back through some of the rollers on keele st. show up at 9:30 for coffee.

why not just take-over one of those "spinning" gyms. there's one on king across from where i work. you could break the silence of everyone on their ipods with asian style side betting.. i'm picturing the crowd in bloodsport just before van damme takes on bolo. a bunch of people in spandex pedalling furiously going nowhere. all the windows are fogged up..heheh.. dirty.
