    That bike has been listed many times, I guess the price is a bit high for most CLers but it does look pretty nice.

    I'm picking up a pair of folding touring tires after work today of CL. 40 bucks for a pair of new conti travel contacts. They are about 40 bucks each for the wire bead version. Sounds like a deal to me!

    I'm starting to recognize who each seller on CL is as well. Those 450 dollar cranks belong to robin, the de bernardi is ronin's and theres always that joker trying to sell the blue miyata. Funny marketplace.

    You ever looked at the SF/SD CLs? Its like a bike pron overload. If I lived there I would be homeless, but instead of a shopping cart I'd have a giant collection of beautiful bikes.

    Same with Canadian Cyclist classifieds, although they really need to do some work on that listing (no pics! or search tools!) My buddy has been looking for a 54cm road bike for ~$500 so i checked Canadian Cyclist with him and the average price for bikes in his size was probably close to $2000. All nearly new CF wonderbikes pretty much

    does anyone know of any shops that sell the Syntace Stratos bullhorns?

    or does anyone have a pair that they'd like to sell me?

    glad I have 5 cogs for this hub as it might be a hassle getting more.

    I just got an email back from Level - they're still up and at 'em. And they are doing direct sales if anyone want's to buy stuff from them.

    I think sweep242 or jeremywhitehorn had a pair... I think it was sweep. Try PMing him.

    Other than that I think I've seen them at urbane and I think they had a pair at la carerra when they were at bathurst. Other than that most stores should be able to order them in right?

    edit: Re: Level: Nice, maybe I should order some cogs just in case.

    Tired of the pansy winters this city produces. DAMN YOU smog bubble!!!!
    Come on, riding in 6 inches of the white stuff, traffic snarled everywhere...BLISS.

    It was a couple years ago we had that nice storm and I get to ride down the centre of Queen (in 8 inches of snow) without seeing a car for blocks and blocks. Awesome fun.

    on a MTB maybe but once you get on a road bike and factor in all that slush and ice and falling on said ice in front of traffic=scary.

    I had the Ciocc powder-coated black and it is now my single-speed with some 23s on the rear and 20s on the front....pretty quick and it should slice through the snow nicely. I had it as my winter ride last year too but the gears kept getting bogged down with salt and ice so I thought I'd try it as SS this year and build it up with a 9-speed 105 kit in the spring. I also have been tooling around on that little Razesa lately and it is nice but no room at all for fenders which makes it a no-go for the winter.

    When/if the snow gets really gnarly, I have my old GT Karokoram set up with fenders and thin knobbies, but I doubt it will get that bad this year...10 degrees isn't really winter, is it?

    Not even close .... I didn't have my lower legs covered when I rode in just after noon today @ 4 degrees.
    Still need my booties though, STILL can't find them.....I MAY have to buy another pair.

    I've oft heard of the skinny wheel set sayin' the slicing tyre gets right to the road, though I haven't been brave enough to do it myself. I like my knobbies in the crud. No worries about salt and a nice road frame?

    Not after it was powder-coated, no. This stuff is tough and doesn't even scratch, it just kinda indents, so I think I will be okay, at least for one more winter.

    When I got the frame/fork, the paint was shot to hell and it had to be re-done anyways so I elected to powder-coat it. To be honest, I am not really happy with the job that was done; many of the nice details around the lugs were lost as well as the "CIOCC" emobossed on the seat-cluster area is sort of filled-in, so I will probably spray it myself in the spring. There are a couple of guys in the Classics/Vintage section who've done great jobs painting their own frames and posted the results, so I think I can do a fair to middling job on my own. Maybe a nice lavender or dusty pink, just to keep the bike firmly entrenched in the '80s

    I've got two frames, MTB and 58 cm road. I'm haven't decided which one to go with for my winter-beater. I'll likely just bum-bike a rear wheel for the winter as I won't have to worry about spinning of a cog in the goo; Loc-tite and rota-fix will do fine. My Suzue basic is slowly pooching out or I'd use that for a rear hub. The cones are shot and I don't know what kind of joy I'll have finding new ones. Harris cyclery has the odd-ball 3/16 side, I'd just need to find a 1/4" one and I'm rockin'. I think Wheels manufacturing makes ones that will fit at 1/4", but I still have some lookin' into it to do.

    I may actually build both up anyway. It would be kind of nice to have the option of going wide or not depending on the road conditions.

    the Fuji is sweet, I want some new bullhorns for it because the bars on it now have too much of a drop and those Syntace bars look pretty comfy.

    How's the Pinarello?

    You can have these.
