Damn that hurts! Especially to go down stairs, sit down in your car, lowering yourself...

I used to feel that way about Scrod too, but I've actually come to appreciate his acerbic wit and intolerance of lazy-mindedness. I find his responses well informed, and the harsher ones somewhat...

Stop perpetuating that silly myth, of course there is. Mine is indeed the best. Matter of fact, it's so good, it's not fair to all the other fixes out there. The only problem this leaves the rest...

Well I'll volunteer to act as a guinea pig on this one by default…..I just built up a pair of track wheels using A23's. The finish appeared perfect with no burrs, etc., and they built up...

This pair cost me exactly $400:

Brand new pair of Paul Components track hubs snagged on Ebay for $145,

I built them, so no cost...

Wow. Just went to his site. What craftsmanship and aesthetics. Seems to be a lot like Richard Sachs in his attention to detail, but his prices seem downright reasonable…...

I have two alu fixies. A Colnago Pista and a Look AL 464 (built up as SS). Love everything about both……plenty stiff, light, and responsive, yet forgiving enough over rougher surfaces. And rust is...

Their bikes appear to be nice products. The frame geometries seem to be a bit more on the aggressive side which I like. Just note that from what I read, the Varsity model seems to come set up as...
