    It just happened while I was riding. I never crashed on the bike. I think there must have been a crack and then I rode off a curb or something and it finally let go. The bike just started to feel weird while I was riding it, when I backpedaled it felt spongey and when I hit a bump it felt kind of grindy and weird. Malcolm at Biseagal repaired it for me. Actually he rewelded both seat stays, he said that on this particular Mielle model there was not a large enough contact area for the seat stay welds. His father-in-law had the exact frame and it broke in the same spot. He put some nice beefy welds on there and so far so good. Here's a couple of crappy late night pics that I just took now. The bike is dirty and the light is crappy. I will take a couple of nice pics with natural light and post them in the pictures section one of these days.

    It's slang for a method of over tightening a cog to lessen the need for a lockring. essentially you forgo a chainwhip and simply bind the chain around the cog and turn the wheel. i've done it and it works well (also works for removing a cog). read the instructions here, they explain it better than i can.

    Have they finished the ramp up to the bridge at Rouge river yet, or do you still have to carry your bike up the stairs?

    He listed it a couple of weeks ago for more cash, maybe you can talk him down further? I am not sure why but the San Jose doesn't appeal to me; could it be useful for offroad or is it more for a commuter market?

    being an admittedly older guy I kinda like the more relaxed geometry, (better for my lower back). I'm kind of drawn to the wheel switch possibilities of the cross as well with the best of both world's in a single frame. I'm guilty of wanting several bikes now though as much as I've tried desperately deny my natural nurturing nature to any and all wayward bike parts that might come my way. It's so easy to suddenly find oneself with an entire wing of the mansion dedicated to all things cycling.

    My ideal quiver would be a bike for every use and then some, BUT that's not going to happen unless we hit the numbers. Sooo a SS/fixie flip/flop ripper for street/track and a geared cross ride with an extra set of wheels for roading, and of course the mtb which will soon be SS and then rigid.

    Most recently been jonesin' for a bmx with pegs, and bars I can spin.

    Hey, nice to put the name to the face (and bike). It so funny that we know everyone by what they ride. I often think that people I know could walk right by me, and I wouldn't notice without seeing their bike. Well now I know you. I know you very well, whahahahah!

    Big fan of the bike by the way.

    In other news:
    I received $200 of the $350 owed to me by the guy that ran me over (he's paying the rest in a week or two). Cold hard cash baby! And everyone thought I was screwed. Over the last couple of days I took my two phuked wheels, and trued them back to 75% perfection. Good enough until they pooch out. It took forever. It's bad for the ego, rebuilding screwed up wheels. The whole time I was thinking "Oh man, I've lost my edge. I don't know how to build/true wheels at all". I had to keep telling myself that the mechanic said they were beyond repair, so any resemblance to a functioning wheel was a miracle. I'm good for now, until I figure out what I want to do for wheels.

    As a chef I would love to claim I only eat good food. But every now and then KFC sounds so good. Never tastes good though. Tacos and Choc pie tonight. And some I deal coffee. Am happy now.

    If I'd known then what I know now, I never would have sold my Wicked for what I did, assuming he gets asking price

    I just found this *6* hour radio show completely dedicated to James Brown music. Wicked!
