    Heya,
    Jet Sanchez suggested this place for power coating a while back.
    They're in etobicoke though.

I have an '80s geared Ciocc that is my daily rider but I am planning on "fixing" it this summer, just as soon as I get my hands on a nice Bianchi frame to switch the 105 parts over. I do have a single-speed Miele though, so maybe I can join you with that.

    Anywho, I PM'd cavit8 with info regarding powder-coating a bike in Toronto. He mentioned this thread and that maybe some of you guys would like to have the same information, so here it is:

    Spectrum Powder Coaters
    416-622-4595
    63 Medulla Avenue,
    Etobicoke, ON
    M8Z 5L6

    These guys are great and friendly and, most importantly, cheap. I got the Ciocc powder-coated with a custom colour for 60$ and the Miele powder-coated black for 25$----they just threw it in with some patio chairs, meaning it wasn't a custom set-up. That is a pretty good deal, especially considering that it won't chip, which is the whole reason I had to get the Ciocc done in the first place, that notoriously lousy Italian paint. I hope someone can use this information, let me know when you guys next plan to hook up for a ride. Later.
    physics hertz.

    I think there was actually some discussion about this previously in this thread. Just use the "search this thread" button up near the top and search for "powder coat" (2 words).

    Slow but good. I'm still accumulating parts, so it'll be awhile. I think by mid-February I'll be up and running though.

    My brain just died ... but to whoever has the Mavic pursuit bars (Somnabulant, Shiznaz?): what's clamp diameter do they fit? My pair is still stuck in Flint Michigan, so I may have to pick up a stem before I get the bars in my hands.

    these guys are near O'Connor Dr./Victoria Park area and do frame painting I think,

    http://www.racersportif.com/Service_FramePainting.htm
    and these guys are on Bloor west

    I have no experience with either, but they do specialize in bike frames, so a custom/detail/multi colour job might easier to get from these guys than just a straight up single colour powder coat from a place that does lawn furnature.

    FYI old Cinelli bars use a 26.4 clamp diameter so if yer gonna grab a pair make sure you have the stem to go with em.

    ohayo (or konnichiwa, depending on when y'all wake up)! akemash!te omedetou! i had a great time back in hogtown, but didn't get to ride as much as i would've liked with all the rain(!)...and when the weather cooperated, i was either out-of-town or with non-cyclists. oh well, nothing like lugging my bike case around the world...at least i was able to pick up some nice gear from 'wheels of bloor' (if you go, tell peter the dude from japan sent you). i was also able to satisfy some of my gastronomical cravings, including jet fuel, clafouti, terroni, saving grace, creemore beer, brar sweets, papa ceo's, etc...geez, i even stopped in at sanko for some onigiri, complete with nori, and green tea (highly recommended, btw!)...if only they also had the convenient hard-boiled eggs.

    i also met up with gokiburi (who ended up helping me with some arts'n'crafty present-making. gokiburi-san, domo arigato gozaimash!ta!!) for coffee, an alley walk(!) and a tour of his office. while i got to check out and ride his sannino, he only got to see my two feet. and after a wet vacation at home, i have returned to japan, where the local temperature today was 15C and i was just rocked by tremors of an earthquake.

    otherwise, nothing much else to report. maybe i'll see some of you in 1.5-2 years when i return again! or give a holler if you come to japan.

    p.s. gokiburi> check out the pic...is this the bike you saw with the tennis balls? the pic is of one of the cats i met at kyotoloco.

    p.p.s. cavernmech> i think you might know d.proffit over at 'the mess'? if so, please say "hi" from 323, if you ever see him!

    *out of the blue*

    I think this spring once it warms up a bit we should have a day of grass track racing. It'd be a good chance for everyone to come out and take part in something they're absolutely horrible at (unless we have a ringer in town). Then, I believe drinks (rootbeer in sr's case) should be in order.

    Further to the cyclops track bike that was mentioned a bit ago, I've been in correspondence with the maker's son and he's got a few frames for sale. This is the one I was speaking with him about (a 58 cm). My circumstances have changed such that it's unlikely I'll have any cash for this. If you're interested, I can put you in touch with him. He apparently has some other sizes but he hasn't got back to me with what they are.

    Hrm, that is really nice and my size. It is un-used? What is the rear spacing? Do you think you could PM me the price that is being asked for it? Thanks.

    s-s-s-so c-c-c-cold.

    I really need a proper set of winter riding gloves. I'm just wearing a pair of fleece gloves right now, and they don't help a whole lot. Ze goggles! Zey do nussing! My gf bought me a pair at Bikes on Wheels for xmas, but they were too small.. brought them back and they didn't have any larger sizes. d'oh! Now I have store credit and have to wait for them to get more.. Or I could just use the money towards that Soma coffee holder.

    I use the MEC espresso sunglasses with clear lenses for all my winter/night/crap biking. They are a great price and the spare lenses are so cheap you can abuse the hell out of them and then just get a replacement. And there is nothing as slick as wraparounds.
