You guys may be in luck. We've got a couple of demo and blemished frames hanging around (nothing major, just small paint blemishes and stuff) that we'll most likely on the site at a pretty good discount soon.

i was sooo close to pulling the trigger on a polished velosolo ring this past weekend. didn't care much for the thought of getting it shipped from uk so held off. but my trigger finger is getting itchy & i am having a hard time resisting.

please...get them in before i cave & you can consider at least 1 already sold

Velosolo currently doesn't make anything bigger than 48t and the first batch we're getting are 1/8".

3/32" will happen sometime soon.

I threw a bunch in the box with Epic's fork before it went out today but haven't had a chance to get them back up on the site.

Let's do this - buy any other sticker and we'll throw in a bunch of BFSSFG stickers for free. This goes for anyone here who wants them.

Ok. No worries... I wasn't trying to be "pushy" and I hope I didn't come across that way.

I'll likely be buying some Oury's for a grocery getter that I"m putting together. Do you happen to have a set in black?

In other recent news, we've been talking to the fine folks at Traitor about carrying their amazing framesets (and eventually maybe complete bikes) and I'm very curious to hear your thoughts.

Ok. I'll put the order in tonight or tomorrow and I'll let you know in the order comments to send be a set of black ones. (I'll just order a clear set and you can swap it out when you ship it). I'll remind you here as well.

That's good to hear. I'm really surprised more people aren't riding them. The Ringleader is absolutely beautiful.

Wow, you are just getting all sorts of frames. I have a desire to try out a Leader 722, but I keep seeing Traitors around town and they continue to catch my eye. I am in love with my Ruben, so I say go for it!

Hell yeah, that green color is awesome. Also, $399 MSRP for the frameset is less than a Leader 722TS and S803 steel fork.
