    No worries, I'm the height of a normal human (ie. 5'10") ... I was just curious because Gene keeps showing up at my apartment during the night and whispering sweet nothings in my ear about his frames. Either that or I'm having really disturbing dreams.

    Gene's frames are nice, but theyre nothing that special, or at least his standard frames are; I can't say anything about his custom work. I can say that their best point is not beauty though, and his welds tend to be thick and nasty, but at least they should be strong. I don't think he works with lugs though if thats your thing. I still have to reccomend him though because he really is a super guy that works crazy hours to make even one time customers really happy.

    yeah, but i've always liked the way the Spicer seat and chain stays curved around the rear wheel...and the massive size of the rear dropouts. I'm sure it's total asthetics and not anymore functional than if they were straight...but still those frames look damn cool.

    if you were selling I'd hope you'd give us 6' 1" tall guys the heads up first

    I remember seeing some pictures but I can't find em anymore.

    www.spicercycles.com

    I emailed the guy about the Merckx, but he already had people coming over to pay for it.

    Gene on his fork ends:
    The ti inserts are made so the inside of the hub rest on the ti to avoid alum frame wear. To have enough ti material to bolt above and below that surface area to connect to the frame the ti has to extend or be exposed the dianmeter of that lock nut (last hub nut that is almost 20 mm in diameter) area. Some hubs are even wider there like small flange dura ace and surly. The locknuts on those hubs can be replace and they are so thick a spacer is need to if I recall. So it is a matter of getting those 4 holding screws of the ti insert away fron the center lock nut diameter to tie into the alum frame. I have thought about it and have not come up with a better idea. Not one has failed or worn out so I may leave well enough alone. They look big but weigh so very little. There is a lip on them that catches in the frame and the outside ti area cover the frame from any damage from the axle nut.

    San Francisco CL ... a whole other world. Not like the "1 fixed gear or singlespeed item / 4 months" we see here.

    Of course!

    My frame doesn't have the ti inserts, and you can definitely see evidence of the track nuts biting into the aluminum. Luckily they are super fat and overbuilt so I don't think it would ever become a problem.

    Also to see my bike look at my sig
    I'm biking across North America on the Internet!

    hey guys.. did you hear there was another cyclist fatality a week ago? scary ****. There's actually a candle-light vigil tonight.

    I'm in Halifax airport right now waiting for a flight back from Newfoundland. Boo to flying.. yay to free wireless and a powerbook.

    I fell down in a not-nearly-drunk-enough stupor last week though and hurt my ribs.. not sure if I'll be riding for a little while. I'll have to see what it feels like when I get back.

    Link? It's not too surprising given the weather, stuff melting and freezing creating patches of ice that just kill your traction. Kind of dicey out there right now.

    Say what? Do you still have a link to the original eBay auction? I'd get in contact w/ raygunner if that wasn't mentioned before.

    That says it has no dings. Get your refund on if you're not happy with it.

    is it good etiquette to request for refund?
    He was quite pleaseant to deal with (althought it took nearly a MONTH to get it here)
    and if I do get a refund, don't I loose out in money?
    Paypal transfer fees, shipping back fees etc. ?

    Are there other options?
    ask for money reinbursement, ask for favors (chicago = yojimbo's)
