I think his bikes look fine... Not a great font and I'm not usually a fan of the colours, but they seem like decent custom rides. Don Wood himself however, in my limited experience of him on the web, is a complete jackass.

I was kinda thinkin the same thing....decent bikes but nothing special. Out of all the bikes at Nahbs his would be fairly far down the list. A chubby, scotch drinkin', cigar smokin' Texas resident. Nuff said.

No the MR White stuff is much less interesting! But he has a cool site so he’s not really gone.

EDIT:I did get Mythmaker & like it.

Anyone have an extra 42-47 chain ring 144bcd (pretty sure thats what my cranks are...will check and report back if incorrect) laying around they want to get rid of?

49/17 is killing me, a 18/19t cog would work too.

I hope everyone got out and rode hard and long today it was totally gorgeous.

I only read threads in the main forum rarely. Still lost of 'timbuk2vschrome' or 'don't you hate this?' kind of stuff... The pic thread of where you ride is pretty good though.

Yeah, it's too bad Don left, I usually thought he had interesting stuff to say. I'm not a huge fan of his bikes, forks a little chunky and off balancing the rest of the bike and yeah, boo to serif fonts, but better than I could do . I also wish Mr White hadn't hidden his pics of chicks on bikes on his site. Now just pictures of him and his buddies...

There are a lot of folks who I miss more.

Hey Operator!

So I finally get around to making a base for the truing stand at Bike Chain only to see that it now has one. Anywho, I dropped it off none the less, maybe you can use it for a second stand.

Did I hear right? You guys are getting like 20 grand? Congrats!

What about the one you bought at the bike show? 54 wasn't it?

Before I forget...

Bottom bracket clinic at bike chain (U of T) this thursday. Here's what the email said...

This week at Bike chain...

Don't miss the episode you have all been waiting for...

Bottom Brackets, and the flat fix of doom!

Show opener: We're going to teach you how to fix a flat yourself, because people will respect you more.
On the main stage: The bottom bracket overhaul. Drop some sweet shop terminology at your next box social, or sock-hop!

With special guest, Robin "You might remember me from single speed conversion, wheel building and headsets" Hamill.

There will be laughs, tears, and if you are good you might even learn something about the central mechanism of the modern bicycle.

This Thursday from 6-8, ONLY @ Bike Chain!

Be there or have a good excuse, sucka!


Oh ya, it's free!
