This sucks, have class on Sat, then a wedding to go to. Why do people have to get married on a weekend. Ruin bike shopping day. Of course my wife is happy I can't spend this months rent on something "unimportant". Shesh. Silly girl, bike stuff is anyways important.

Not bike stuff. That's going to change though. Need some stuff to get the winter beater fix on the go. And a new bb for the single speed, a rear axle and spacers, and 2 tubes, and a tire, new crank.....

Hey guys remember when I *didn't* post pics of my new Miele Fixed conversion? Well the bike is dead already. NO I did not hit something (before someone asks). One of the seat stays just snapped off from the seat tube while I was riding. I rode on it for a while and it felt weird but I couldn't figure out why! It's pretty rusted inside the tube and I'm afraid the rest of the inside of the frame might look like that too. I wish I could post a pic (my camera it appears is toast), it just snapped clean off. I guess I might take it to Malcolm at Biseagal to see what he says but I think i'll probably just junk the frame. I got a good week out of it at least and at least it was free. I have a complete bike just need a frame.... I'm kinda bummed, but ultimate it could be a good thing, I'm going to get a proper fixed/track frame now, which hopefully will ride even better. What a weird day. Some other dude at work (i'm a courier) got his bike stolen and my friend got hit by a car too.

Iíll explain a bit. so i go to ebay.com/cycling on the top of the page a smoking chick showing her ass in a g string is the pic the item was collage foot ball tickets you click on the item & it redirected you to some page that looks kind of like ebay but so not. So the same thing happens two more times but topless chickís both times. So it was a bit funny to go on ebay & see topless chicks in the cycling part. But itís not so funny that a person can do that. Redirecting you & asking for log & pass.
Cheers

Dude that blows. You may want to check over the frame first to see if any other tubes are going to fail before you get that one thing repaired. Or you can look for a new frame...

Dan, I have a Raleigh Record 57cm frame you can have. It needs a bottom bracket (and pretty much all else). I was getting around to getting Keith to get a spindle for it, but you can have it if you want.

Thanks a lot for that Cavit8! I might be interested, although I'm afraid it might be a bit too big. Is it 57 ctc on the seat tube? What is the top tube length? What colour is it?

Yeah I saw that nice red Miele that is way too small for me. That fire engine red colour looks awesome.

It's 57 (maybe 58) centre to centre with about a 57cm top-tube. I don't have a measuring tape, so I'm ballparking with a level I have. It's a dark blue.

Crap. Did anyone score this Bianchi on CL posted later in the day? I emailed the person right away but I must have been too slow; I initially thought it was a joke. I guess we'll see it back on CL with a 500$ price or on eBay. I have been dying for an SLX frame and if it was a Bianchi, it will have been the celeste colour. Oh well, another one will come along eventually (but not likely for 50 bucks).

Damn, that's a bit too big for me. 55 ctc is more my size, with 56 being the absolute height limit. I can do a 57 top tube, although 56 is just about right. thanks again though, I really appreciate it!

You have got to be kidding me. The seller told you this in an email? I received nothing from them at all. Great, Igor is on the internet, no one is safe. I see Uncle Jacob is on ebay as well, unloading some nice stuff too. This is why we can't have nice things.
