    I think there have been lengthy discussions that the card suit motif doesn't really belong to anyone, but the first company to really use it was campagnolo, in an advertisement or something... either way it doesn't belong to ciocc.

    haha the guy in the cubicle across from me (dinosaur) was just discussing his streisand plans for tonight. One of your friends JIT?

    Yeah, a couple weeks ago I saw him on a crosswalk so I decided to SNATCH the right of way, dialed it up to 400 watts, blew through 6 red lights and aimed right for him intent to collide with him and maim him and his family in a violent fit of narcissism (I of course would be fine).


    ...Well... he wasn't actually there, and I only ran a rolled a stop sign at 1am on Roxton, but he theoretically could have been there, so I'm still a sociopath.

    It belongs to Bianchi
    http://www.vintagevelos.com/Coppibike.html

    From the advertisement for Coppi or so the legend goes.

    Ciocc uses four aces from each suit in the headbadge which was why the arrangement in the ring made me think Ciocc.

    Damnit! My cycling jacket is 2 years old now and has been falling to pieces for about 2 years, but it still worked admirably as a jacket. Just recently the zipper started to give and I decided to get one of those MEC hydrocycle jackets or whatever once they came out. But riding home from work today I sit up on the bike to undo the zip a bit (I was getting hot) and the zipper just explodes in half and lands on front street. I didn't bother to go back and comb the street because the traffic was crazy.

    So now what the hell do I do with a bike jacket that won't close? If only the chinese factories didn't mess up the MEC jacket order!

    Looking at the construction of this jacket it would be pretty labour intensive and difficult to replace the zipper...

    I know! I'll just use safety pins (safety first!) or carry a roll of duct tape and put a line down my sternum every time I go outside

    Well, I am now the proud owner of a filthy pullover bike jacket with duct tape accents.

    Edit: You're THAT small offhoff? I didn't get that impression when we've met...

    My first impression is its hot... 500 bucks, no info except for what you can read on the seat tube. I dunno, sounds fishy. I guess its just probably some rick weekend warrior or something who got bored with his toy.

    I dunno, I've never dealt with fitting myself to a bike at the level of a cervelo I e-mailed the seller to take it for a test ride, I suppose I'll find out then.

    Sounds too good to be true! But who knows could be a crack head.

    I'm in a similar boat. What you can do (and what I had done on my ancient goretex) is get a new zipper sewn putting it over the old one. It ends up layered, but you don't have to pick open a seam and it works fine. When I get around to getting a new zipper for my windbreaker, that's what I'm doing.

    I would, but I'd don't know if I can crouch that low, you being so vertically challenged and all.

    Not to mention, who asks for a serial number when looking to buy bikes anyways? That's a sure tip off for that guy...

    If you do check it out, bring one or two friends with you. Preferably large muscular guys.
