    Of course. We can invoice you for the labor charge prior to shipping.

    @Scrodzilla Right now I'm debating between King and DT Swiss 240's. Are any of these two available?

    I searched back in this thread and saw that Nagrom asked if you could get the King hubs. Hope things have change lol.

    We'll be a Chris King dealer by the time the new shop opens.

    BTW everyone - the site is back up and we are once again accepting online orders.

    Scrod, I want to build up a cheap steel beater. I'm leaning toward the Fyxation frame but not sure on sizing. The best fitting bike I've owned has a 543mm effective TT. Do you have any input on whether the Fyxation 55 (560 tt) or 52 (535 tt) would be a better fit? I'm 5'10" so according to their site, 55 would be better but they also don't indicate if their TT measurement is actual or effective.

    ...or would a Pake be a better choice fit wise with their 53 having a 540mm effective tt? Any thoughts or opinions?

    Im looking into buying a straight blade track fork and came across the steel one you sell. is there any real difference between the one you have http://www.retro-gression.com/produc...ed-chrome-fork and the soma track fork? http://store.somafab.com/sostbltrfo.html

    I'm assuming tubing (infinity vs cromo) and rake? the threadless 1in soma has a rake of 38mm instead of 41, are yours the same?

    I'm veering towards yours for price and the black option

    They're similar but not exactly the same.

    FWIW, Tange Infinity is just a fancy name for seamed, double-butted Cro-mo.

    I notice that you have the Renovatio listed on our site. Is it actually out yet? Hows it look? And by chance do you know the geometry of it? Thanks!

    Yes, it's available and is a very nice frame (just like the Kagero). The hydroformed seat tube is super sexy and if I didn't like my 725 so damn much, I'd probably already be riding one.

    I'll post the chart on the site as soon as I get it.

    I'd probably still rather have an EAI BK, but the street credits on that thing...

    Yo Scod,

    Since you can actually see both products side by side. What are the real differences between the generic double straps you have, and the Toshi's?

    The generic ones aren't laminated and won't last nearly as long, especially if they get wet.

    And thanks for the welcome!

    The discontinued deluxe laminated double straps. Never forget.

    Knowing how atypical scrod is, he'll probably have a survivor sale after a major earthquake or something now that he's in earthquake country.
