Ah ****! I think i'll need to get a new fork, the steerer is not long enough to accomdate the gigantic locknut at the top

And the top race of my headset does not fit into the headtube but the bottom one does. How does that work?

This day just gets better and better.

Talking about new/old bikes I would like to have this under my ass.

Posting here so I don't lose the info:

Measure the following things:
Tcr (thickness of chainring)
Tcg (thickness of cog)
Df (Distance between left side of seat tube and outside face of chainring)
Dr (Distance between inside face of right dropout and outside face of cog)
ODst (Width of seat tube = outside diameter of seatpost)
Wd (Width between inside faces of both dropouts)

chainline_rear = Wd/2 - Dr - Tcg/2
chainline_front = Df - ODst/2 - Tcr/2
compare

there's a good scotch pub on kingston road (feathers), or the amsterdam or mill st brewries are always offering tours. something to think about.
I really can't believe nobody else has responded to this. FOR SHAME!

I'd be down with this!

yeah, we were talking about it here a couple weeks ago during our short skateboarding phase. Nice find though. I've watched that section SO many times... it's so good. I actually don't remember Song's section at all.

edit: bhahahaha.. he's got the same deck as me (@49s in at least)!

okay so for those interested in riding sunday i'm thinking late morning, say 10 which gives us time to ride a bit before the pub / brewery opens. i can check to see if amsterdam brewery is open for tours tomorrow.

so far cavernmech and somnambulant have expressed interest. who else is in?

not THAT much before noon. the law says it's right. besides, it's a long weekend, so if you're not drinking beer before noon here, you'd be doing it at some cottage somewhere...

My thought's exactly. Plus if you have a stout, its kind of like brunch really.

okay so to recap: those interested in doing this "beer brunch" ride meet at 10am for caffiene at jet fuel (519 parliament) and from there, we'll ride a bit (depending on weather) and hit brewery (or pub). i'll see which ones are open.

bring your waterproofs as it will be probably be raining.
