    I can't believe this weather I spent Sunday sessioning hills in Burlington on skateboards. Totally surreal usually we can't get out much past October and we had like 15+ guys riding gnarly hills all day. Super cool. Its supposed to get cold after this weekend, a northern air mass should move in. But we'll see with the El Nino I don't think any weather model is particularly accurate these days.

    My friend and I 'sessioned' the road going down to bluffer's park a few times this weekend. That hill really takes as much as it gives... We'll see how much easier it gets once I throw on a mountain cassette.

    bianchi with chrome lugs and chainstays, hot pink fade job, aero lever and original cables, 100 bucks. Sounds like a deal to me

    Anyone in fixie land have a new or used Surly Tuggnut they want to have leave from? I need one pronto for my Single Speed MTB, but it will be forever before we will order one at my store.

    On that note, does anyone else know of a chain tugg that will work with QR or solid axles like the surly one will? I just need something.

    *edit* My rear wheel keep slipping because I can't get the Skewer to tighten enough. I broke one already.

    So, does anyone have some recommendations for a budget fixed wheel? I'm still working on my old Miele which is SS now but I want fixed. What I'd really like is Open Pro/Phil Wood... but unless I win the lottery that's not going to happen. I'm thinking maybe a Surly hub and some good but fairly priced hoops, but what other options should I consider?

    I just bought the surly flip flip hub for my mtb. Been using it for about a month. Fantastic so far. Had it built to an Alex disc rim for a really good price at cycle Therapy.

    We are currently receiving booking over the next week or so, which is probably over 40% of the years P&E. It's the stuff we can only get from US distributors, like the tuggnut, surly hubs, and other cool stuff that we can't order without having a minimum order. It's a drag, but that's the story this time of year for small independent shops with small buying power.

    It's always sort of blown me away that there isn't a consolidated buying group for bicycle shops here. Some outdoor retailers formed the Oasis group which allows larger economy of scale purchases and custom ordering. Maybe too competitive a marketplace...

    Probably. If it's with the rest of the Ortleib stuff, we would get it from NRG I believe. Problem is (even though they are a domestic distributer) the minimum order comes into play. I think we can get Surly stuff from them too. Maybe I'll have better luck with that than QBP.

    *edit* I'm in class right now. Bike forums is going to make me fail out of school.
