    Where's a good spot in town for pickin parts? I have a Cramerotti frame I think I want to turn into either a Gold Sprint Bike, or an SS for the road. Recycle in the East is always closed since someone tried to rob Paulie. I heard he had a *** waved in his face, must freaked him out something serious as I've never seen the place open since.

    I WILL not goto Ivan's in the west.

    Can I make a flip wheel with fixed on one side and a BMX freewheel on the other?

    are there are rock climbers in the house? I used to climb back in Newfoundland both in a gym as well as outdoors. I've been wanting to get back into it, but I don't have anyone that's willing to be a regular climbing partner.

    Bueller?

    I love to climb, but I'm pretty novice. I've done it a handful of times, but I don't have any gear at the moment. I'd love to do some outdoor stuff in the summer though. I would pick up some shoes and a harness, etc. if I had a group to go with.

    Ivans? I think you mean Igor's... the damned pirate that he is. You should, alternatively, check out 'Parts Unknown' in kensington market - it's in a shed at the back of a driveway that runs west off of augusta street, just north of baldwin. George, the guy who runs it, is great. Bring your patience though.

    Word.

    Keith what's your selection of used forks looking like these days? I'm looking for:
    - 1" threaded
    - 38mm rake
    - 170mm steerer tube length

    Urbane quoted me $65 for one of their Urbanite forks and there's an option from the states that'll run $50USD + shipping. If you think you might have some options, please let me know.
    The used fork situation is heinous at the moment. All the Miele forks I have left are too short for yer needs. The only fork I have in 1" is a Profile ARC carbon....it is threaded but I would have to thread it a couple of inches to give it the right length. Brand new....$100. Oh...the rake is 43 mm tho.

    Try Clay at Cogs Cycle. Gerrard at Howland Rd. About 4 blocks east of Broadview. He has all kinds of used stuff.
    Yes....you can use a flip flop hub with fixed on one side and BMX on the other. The only caveat is most of the econo flip flop hubs are total crap. Formula is the best bet.

    On the used bikes front there is only 1 bike left from the first load, this s#!ts moving quick. The remaining one is a 58cm pink Miele. It is complete except for wheels. I wont be getting any more for 3 weeks.

    Cool thanks...the more scavenger holes the better. It's been years since I got rid of my road baby, and frankly I miss the effortless speed and acceleration. Braking in the rain....not so much.....lol Formula Hubs... got it, can't have the hubs blowing up. I'm actually thinkin' about pimpin' this one and makin' it stupid sick...lol Hey 40 this year... I need a toy....this way I can gold sprint with Bobby, Petey, Albert and those lads, get loaded flip the wheel and ride home..

    any suggestions from those in the know as too how much these Formula hubs run...and perchance which model is right for my fixed/SS flip flop

    as a side note, if you didn't know.. IRO hubs = formula. Correct me if I'm wrong. So, you could use this as a guide.

    AAaahahaha - yeah.... it's a friggin' crime. The one day I didn't ride in to work, and... *POOF*... warm!

    On the deep-v tip, I'm desperately looking for a source on a set of the white-powdercoated 32h deep-v rims to build up some wheels for a friend of mine. I've asked around, and spoken to Velocity, and aparently there's no Canadian distributor. I got a yellow one from urbane a while back (they had astack of yellows), but can't find any deeps in any other colors.

    Thoughts anyone?

    you could power-coat some un-coloured ones:

    Spectrum Powder Coaters

    63 Medulla Avenue,
    Etobicoke, ON M8Z 5L6
    Tel. : 416-622-4595

    or you could always keep it old school.

    Silly thought: order a set from the US?

    And yeah, being inside today sucks. It was actually really nice for riding this morning as well, even though it was much colder. But at least there was no wind... that's my main criteria. I had to go to city hall to take care of some stuff before I went to work and it took all my will power to ride up Bay Street instead of just pissing off and going for a ride.

    I rode my bike, but I did yoga at lunch and I'm meeting friends right after work. So, no riding for me.. Well, not until I ride home half in the bag later this evening anyway.

    I haven't been to CM in months either... I keep making plans on those days. I'm s-m-r-t.

    Powdercoating - in a pinch that could work... but will probably end up more 'spensive than just ordering a set of Vees in from the states, which is looking pricey - I got quoted about $80-$90 per rim. Ouchie.

    Ordering from the states... see above

    If it were my ride, I'd not be too particular about the color, but my friend wants me to build him an excessively white bike, and once he saw the white V's on a ride on FGG, he fell in love. I'm building a bike for his roomie too, all stealth black. I think I'm going to name them Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes... can't get enough of that shiznit.

    In other news: anyone see this insanity yet?! http://www.citynoise.org/article/2770 (whoops! just caught my repost on this one...)

    ...makes me sad...

    Well let's see. My gf is currently going out for a "you just broke up with your junkie boyfriend" beer with her best friend, which I'm guessing will turn into quite a few beers. So I'm riding solo tonight.

    Here's a quick tip for all you guys who might be in a similar situation:

    If you're an opium addict, don't say you're going to quit and clean up just before your week-long vacation to Cuba and then decide at the last minute that you're going to smuggle your drugs across the border. Furthermore, don't get your gf hauled off the line by Cuban customs agents and searched for hours. Then, when you say you're not going to do the drugs you brought with you and you're done with all that ****, don't just up and start doing them a few hours later. Finally, when the maid steals your drugs the next day, don't go around to all the hotel staff begging to get them back. And really don't go down to the front desk and demand that your opium be returned from the maid who you think stole it. Oh, and then don't get all sketchy for the rest of the week and then get high the minute you walk in the door back in Canada.

    That ****'ll get your ass dumped pronto.

    They didn't search him. They searched her. And then they let her go once some other tourist made the fatal mistake of saying something that was construed as confrontational.
