Funny you mentioned that, I just lanned Falcon 4.0 with my friend last night. This is the post-leaked source-turned commerical redeveoped version. It's pretty ****ing awesome. I actually bought a copy of Falcon 3.0 from computer city, shrink wrapped with manual for $5 like 10 years ago.

If you want the bottle opener combo then Surly is the only one. If you just need chain tugs I have some for 10 a pair.

haha my housemates are such dorks. We removed most of the interior doors for the sake of circulation, since theres freaking dozens of them. I come home today and they are all back on. I ask why "To lower the heating costs". Why the hell NOW of all times? They also said they turned off the furnace and are using space heaters now. OH JEEZ GREAT GUYS! Now I have to convince them they are wrong, and its going to require printing some sh*t out....

Not sure if other shops have them in stock, but I saw some of the bottle opener tugs today at LaBicicletta. It was either 15 or 20 bucks.

Should be getting some at curbside in a week or two. We're an official Surly dealer now (YAY!), so we'll have the works.

If you want it now, I think I remember Urbane having one last time I was there.

That bike gets a big 'ol meh from me compared to some of the others on there. I mean, aside from the wheelset of course. Then again, I'd take a set of freewheel 404's over track 808s as well.

ps. I ordered some more bits and pieces from Cadence Clothing and Dustin lost my order and it was never shipped. When I emailed him about it he appologized and sent me a custom version of the cap I ordered, a bunch of extra stickers/etc, and also a rough dvd edit of the Fast Friday footage he's editing together (plus the other couple things I ordered). AND he then sent it usps global priority. Now that's customer service.

In other news I am the proud new owner of a red 80's Gardin Track bike....yes the one that was hanging in the shop for months. John has decided he no longer has a use for it. I assured him that I will find a use for it. Another loaner bike for the FCV. SWEET! FGG entry #7 coming up.

Theres no way a 68 year old man can get pumped up enough to do another Rambo movie without human growth hormones...

PS. We have to go to the FCV again. I promise I'll bring my cyclops.

PPS. I have been working on freehand a drawing of a track bike in MSPaint while I have been on the phone this morning. I'm going to work on it over the next few weeks and make it look really realistic.
