Sounds like a Pro frame. Was it Alu or steel? That is full retail for the complete, entry level bike. I have 2 Pro framesets left from this season...a much better price than that.

Yours for the bargain price of $3999.99. That is if you can actually get him to give you a price on anything.

If you're looking at motorcycles the prices are pretty good!

track update: I was talking to Mike and he said that starting Oct 9 the Winter schedule will be in effect. That includes track 1 sessions every Saturday morning, except the 4th Saturday of every month (when he holds the Track Combo session). That means that it won't be possible for us all to go and do the combo stuff in the morning and track 1 in the afternoon because the track will already be in use in the morning. In addition to that, the track combo session for October only has 1 open spot at this point.

The only thing he could suggest is that we all play hookey on a Friday sometime, and as long as we can get at least 4 people for the combo and 4 for track 1 then we could have the place to ourselves for the day. I don't know how likely that is though with everyone's schedules. HOWEVER, I imagine if we could do that we could actually do Track 1 in the morning and then the combo in the afternoon (instead of the usual, which is the other way around). That means the newbies among us could get totally caught up in 1 day.

holy moley.. i never even knew there was a regional subforum. i just checked it now and there are some toronto-related posts..mcbride cycle sale in particular. i wonder if the posters there know there's a slightly larger toronto thread. op's right, it has zero traffic. i'm against moving this thread. i like 500lbs gorillas. this thread's T.O, but it's also fixed-gear specific.

Any of you guys actually buying those nashbar hubs, click on coupons at the top and use the 10% off. That should definitley get you under the $20 for the order. Sadly I only remembered this morning after I placed teh order.

That would be this coupon code here: http://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.p...29&postcount=2

Edit: Looks like the page for teh hubz is gone already. GG.

it can be tektro, cane creek, salsa, or whatever just as long as it's the same design.

The placement of this thread will be based on your thoughtful input.
Thanks again!
What with having sticky status and all, I think this thread is pretty visible right now. New members chime in regularly and the community is growing. Having said that the thread is serving a worthwhile purpose. I'd hate to see that momentum lost by parking the thread in a different spot that may or may not create more exposure.

just one opinion
