    What do those guys charge for a powdercoat on a bare frame? Do they prime it first (not sure if you need to prime with PC)?

    We got quoted around 40 bucks/frame, for a non-custom colour. Not sure on the priming thing though. I don't think powdercoat requires it, although I could be wrong.

    Oh great, my life is over, I will now spend all of my time posting here.

    Nope, I stripped the frame myself, and Robin got his Schwinn off of Ebay already sandblasted. You've got to give it to Spectrum down to bare metal, because they don't do stripping/blasting. Speaking of which, I've got a half-full container of indoor-use paint stripper, if anyone wants it.

    Hey guys, also, take some time and make sure there is nothing inside of the frame that might heat up and drip, stuff like grease or resin. That happened to me and it kinda marred the powder-coat. I don't have any PMs, are you guys good to get there yourselves?

    I'll go check it out sometime soon and report back.

    Lesson 1: Never call dibs (unless you've already bought the frame)

    Lesson 2: Always share

    The bike is not a Ciocc, as it turns out, but a 57 Cambino Riho track bike

    too small for me, unfortunately. PM me if you want buddy's email or more pics (or you can search Canadian Cyclist and email him, like I did ) I'll fire the info into the For Sale thread tomorrow to give folks here first shot.

    Ya, I called him today and talked to him too. If it'd been a Ciocc it would have been in my living room by now. Wasn't that bike company (the one dude's selling) a subset of Gardin?

    Edit: it would have also helped if the bike actually fit me. sr20det, I might have a line on some Pulse frames. Let me know if you're seriously interested in one and what your size is. If it turns out this isn't another "outdated webpage from years ago" situation I'll let you know.

    ... I have no idea if you were being sincere or sarcastic. There's a thread going on right now in the main ssfg forum that deals w/ these frames. Peace out, home skillet.

    ah ha.. yeah, I was being sincere. I was thinking it was a brand, not a model. I mostly just check in on this thread. I haven't been reading much else lately because there's too much bs lately it seems. Typical message board crap.

    Yeah, I talked to the guy as well and the frame is my size, I just had my heart set on a gorgeous Ciocc *sigh*. The pics he sent me are really nice and the colour of the frame is gorgeous, I will think about it a bit more.

    If you do get a line on a Pulse(s), please give me a PM as well, I have a soft spot for GTs and that would be a nice fill-in until I find a Ciocc Thanks.

    i got a cambio rino steel road frame off ebay just some months ago for $250. no way i'd pay $450 for a cambio frame. that's at least $300 US, and for that amount, ebay has tons of good frames.

    This one has never been built up and the pics that I received show a really nice pearl-white colour. I won't be buying it or anything, but 450$ for an unbuilt steel track frame isn't too nuts nowadays. How is your cambio? Like it? Is it an offshoot of Gardin or was Gardin just the supplier for the brand in Canada? Thanks.

    anyone else get a ride in this weekend? for the first time in months
    i acutally managed two rides. saturday was so cold with that wind i
    had to stop in at jet fuel to thaw out.

    speaking of caffiene, in my never ending quest to find the perfect
    espresso bean that isn't from starbucks (i hate myself for it but i
    acutally enjoy them), i came across a mention of this company in the
    globe's weekend edition:

    http://www.darkcitycoffee.com/

    so i've been thinking about giving them a shot, support local business
    and all that, but since all of you fellows are cyclists and most
    cyclists are coffee drinkers, some possibly even affictionadoes i
    thought i would put out an informal suvey first: what is your
    favourite espresso bean? any local companies that i should be trying?

    PS - only three weeks until the bike show, the true beginning of spring!

    If you want a dark roast, check out the coffee place in kensington-not moonbean-that has a weird atomic looking sign in front. They roast thier own beans, which is critical to getting fresh, good coffee, unless you are going to roast your own. I find whole beans are going stale after 10 days or so.

    Moonbean does mostly lighter roasts, even thier expresso. I prefer these. You might also want to check out balzac's in the distillery district. Pretty good too.

    (I am a coffee snob BTW)

    I dunno the name of the bean, but Alternative Grounds on Roncesvalles has some great coffee and espresso beans. It is fair trade coffee, meaning that the growers get a fair price and are not raped a la Starbucks. Check it out, also, if you are near Roncesvalles, there is another coffee shop called Cherry Bomb and the owner is a bike nerd and has a bike hung on the wall. He changes it every month or so; right now it is one of those inverted-fork racer things, but he had a gorgeous Cinelli raod bike up there a few months ago.

    There is also Ellington's on St. Clair W. just west of Christie. He'll actually fresh roast green beans for you or sell you green beans you've roasted yourself, which is the only way to enjoy a truly authentic cup of coffee.

    Kick Ass is my current favourite! a darkish roast with some medium mixed in. very flavourful. best made in a french press coarsely ground. you won't be dissapointed.
