    For the singulator, if at all possible get the chain going over the tension pulley (you can apply tension either way). Going over the tensioner will give you better tooth engagement for when your start BOMBING MAD HITS! BOOYA!

    I converted my '97 Mongoose Iboc into a single back in 2004 - used the singleator and a cog spacer kit from urbane to get chain tension / chainline worked out on an XT rear hub - worked out just fine, and I've referred to the thing as the 'Tranq Tank' ever since, due to the inordinately high levels of exhaustion I achieve by trying to ride it as fast as my Ciocc


    Winterbourne - those grips WERE hot... I asked the guy derek (I think that was his name?) about it, and he said that he had fabricated them for about $10 from leather he sourced at a shop on king st. and some carpet tape. The trick, aparently, is that there's 2 layers of that fine fine leather there, sandwiched with carpet tape, for extra padding. I'm going to try it on my touring bike.

    I was wondering where you've been. Ugh.. broken ribs.. those suck. I actually just realized that I didn't notice when mine stopped hurting when I broke them during the holidays. I guess it wasn't really that sudden of a process.

    The lovely antique patina shows the years of service these pedals have given.
    Busted ribs...OUCH..... where were you riding and what happened dude?
    Hope you were with enough friends that you got out easily enough.

    ah the don... I have a real love-hate relationship with those trails (the single track stuff). it's so close and convinent... yet so full of rusty nails, broken glass and human pooh.

    there is some nice trails up by stouffvile side rd. and bayview ave... but it's 45 min to and hour just to ride there... and on mtb knobbies it can be exhausting after. Still a few times during the summer I'll make a day of it and go there on my own.

    Sheeyat - morphine to the rescue I hope.
    That mountain biking thing at stouffville/bayview is like 3 km up the road from here heh

    If I had to pay $13 for the bike show, I would've been seriously pissed, but thanks to Traffic Jammers complimentary passes it was good. The flatland competition stuff was awesome, although I was expecting scantily clad women posing around bikes and stuff (nope). I was like the only chinese guy there and I felt seriously out of place.

    operator: flatland (in the main hall)? or the street comp (in the colliseum)?

    And yeah, I'm also grateful I didn't spend $13. I enjoyed the pre-show coffee more. Especially since we could hang out on the front patio.. woo! Getting me excited for Spring already. Patio season!

    I built a nice SS out of a Miele frame and a spacer kit from Urbane but I didn't use a tensioner, is it really a necessary thing? I just finagled with it a bit and it seemed fine. I gave it away though, dumb thing to do, eh?
