    Does anyone make polished silver box style rims anymore? Why isn't anyone into shiny things these days? I want shiny rims to match my shiny seat post, bars, stem, spokes, hubs, toe clips etc. I like shiny things dammit. Did I mention I like shiny things?

    I just scored a nice vintage bike on eBay and it is coming up from the States, which courier should I ask the seller to use? I've heard that UPS charges bursary fees and that they should be avoided, anybody have experience in this area? Thanks.

    My biking goal is to ride through the winter on the gt.
    I checked and I def. don't have enough clearance to put on some knobbies.

    anyone have experience on riding throughout winter on road slicks?
    I rode all last winter on those Vittorio 20s that were cheap a little while ago at Urbane but it was a pretty mild winter last year.

    UPS is a pain in the a$$. i've had them tell me that they won't do bike boxes because they're too big, they'll only deliver if you're home, expensive, etc. I've had several frames shipped USPS, no problems to speak of. much cheaper too.

    box rims seem to have gone the way of the dinosaur. i have a rear wheel built around a "ukai" rim, shiny box section and all. not sure if they're made anymore but try seaching some out on ebay.

    Hey Shiznaz, I saw those helmet pics (amazing) and I think I know you from U of T. Are you the one they call "Charlie"? If so I know you through Will.

    As a side note I swear to god the other day I saw a guy wearing that exact helmet and I didn't detect any irony!!! I swear!

    ROCK AND ROLL

    Cool! Do you have any pics of said rim? Sounds tasty. Yeah I don't get it. I mean it's crazy that no one seems to make 'em. They're just so classic. And the thing is, with all this NJS stuff flying around, its surprising to me that no one really bothers with the box rims, because that's what the Keirin guys ride. Okay they ride tubulars, but still I find it surprising that there isn't more interest in that style of rim.

    U.S.P.S. best bet I think? But ask for a higher level to get a tracking # maybe.

    So what ya get Hmm?

    ask the seller to mark the package as a gift or returned merchandise.

    that usually brings down the brokerage and customs fees, if there are any.

    My recent experience with UPS sucks. Their depot is also out in Concord, so if you miss the home delivery action, you're in for a trek to get your package. FedEx and Purolator are around Carlaw and the Lakeshore.

    I've had issues with all. I can't remmber who shipped my frame, but it may even have been USPS. Check into package sizes on the various sites to see who gives you the best options.

    Yeah, I hope the seller is able to go wtih USPS, I've been dinged with customs through UPS before. I've tried the gift thing too, it is hit or miss.

    The bike should be pretty nice, it appears to be a poorly worded auction and the seller didn't know what he had. If I am right, it is a nice Spanish company that made custom frames and the tubing is Columbus SLX; if I am wrong, it looks really nice and will be a good ride for a friend of mine. We shall see.

    Mavic, Sun and DRC all still make box section rims, and I am sure there are more. I am uncertain who still makes a polished silver tho. Recently the Mavic MA2 was polished but was discontinued a few years back. Sun makes a few polished rims but they are all aero style. E-bay is prolly yer best bet. If you want tubulars, polished silver rims are a dime a dozen.

    Anyone want an old 120mm camera kit? I've got a medium format body, three lenses, grip, cable release, two prisms, etc. etc. etc. It's probably about 30 years old. The 80mm lens needs repair: the shutter is sticking and it blurs photos unless you're doing long exposures. Also, I think the mirror in the body needs to be lubricated properly. It's been a couple of years since I've touched this camera so I can't remember all its quirks.

    Price: nadda. It was given to me so I'll pass it along to anyone that wants to USE it. No flipping it allowed (seriously, that would fall under the "not cool" category). Also, since I'm moving tomorrow you'd have to swing by my place tonight and pick it up. It's all stored in one of those "assassin style" metal briefcases, so bring a vehicle or a big (padded) bag.

    Email: my new user name at gmail.com ... I guess whoever's first in and serious gets it.

    PS. It's a Kowa Super 66. The company wasn't known for high quality products, so they went all out and produced this thing. Unfortunately the project bankrupted the company and they never made anything else.

    Operator could use this to get his foot in the door with the photography chicks.

    Myself, I already have 3 SLRs and my godfather is owner of 4 or 5 hasselblads so I'm hoping he'll give me one of those next time I visit him (he lives in australia). He switched his whole studio to digital so the hasselblads are just sitting in a cabinet.

    If you don't give it away try doing some cool moving shots from the bike or something. I've only ever used medium format on a tripod or walking around with it at my waist, never at high speeds.

    Hey guys,

    Any idea where I might find a smallish touring frame with horizontal dropouts? My GF wants to build up a SS commuter bike.
