    So since i don't have 50+ posts i cant just shoot you a PM but i want to ask a dumb question...

    The cro-mo track COG, you sell in your shop..
    It works for the SS side of the hub as well as the FG side correcto?
    More concerned if it will work on the SS side than anything though.

    Thanks man! (or anyone else who happens to lurk in here and answer this)

    You'll be able to thread it onto the single speed side but you won't have any way of locking it down to prevent it from unthreading when you packpedal or skid. I suppose you could always loctite/rotafix it on but I don't really recommend it.

    Mr. Scrod, I would be interested in RB 002s. Maybe not immediately, but pending the price, definitely by mid summer.

    calv - they're coming, I swear! I've been bugging my distributor endlessly just for you. Not sure of anything like the Deda LowRiders in 38cm and it's my understanding they're not being made anymore.

    And just for ****s and grins, we've got some suede 80s reissue Turbo saddles (available in brown and black) on the way as well.

    that sucks about the LowRiders.. You wouldn't happen to have any of these laying around you're willing to sell:

    -bullhorns in 38cm (preferably black)
    -steel clips size medium <-- I'd get your combo with GR-9's but I don't think my lady would fit the large :/
    -black turbo saddle

    would you? lol

    Brown suede turbo reissues? Awesome! Does the brown suede get darker with age? I've been looking for a new saddle...

    How much do you think they'll cost, Scrod?

    Not sure on cost for the suede Turbos yet - still waiting to get the wholesale info from our distributor. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek:



    We've also got some nice laminated suede double straps coming down the pipe soon too that I'm very stoked about.

    calv - I see if I can dig anything up. The regular vinyl Turbo reissues will be in stock again soon too but I'm not sure when.

    Just a comment to say a customer came into our Portsmouth NH bike shop wearing a Bikeage! T-shirt the other day, picking up some bikes we service. Made me grin.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Alright cool, I just ordered a bunch of **** from your shop though, so I don't need the clips as I bought those too from Bells bike shop.

    Thanks though dude, hard to find some stuff! haha

    So far what I need is a silver 26.8 seatpost, black bullhorns size 38cm, a saddle (i'm sure the turbo will be good enough for my lady), rb-002's for myself, and some silver spacers, and a shim so my stem will fit 1" steerer.. if you got anything of those sorts that you're willing to sell, that'd be great my amigo!

    oh yeah and a front brake and levers lol

    Thanks, man. You're one of our best customers.

    I think I may have a stem shim and some spacers leftover from when I had my Kilo but I'll have to do some digging around.

    Right on. We get up to Portsmouth quite a bit during the Summer but I've never been in that shop. I'll pop in and say hello next time we're there.

    Still playing the waiting game on RB-002s. According to our distributor, they've got a huge Nitto order coming from Japan.

    I can't wait either! My Leader 725 is sitting here waiting for one to grace its Thomson.

    The coolest thing about them is that they're much better quality than the standard reissue and are made to the original specs using PerfectFit self-molding padding and FeC rails.

    I don't care about the stripes but I really wish they'd reissue the perforated model.

    It's natural Nubuck leather, which is more durable than actual suede.

    The padding on the '80 reissue is nice. I never had a problem with the standard reissues but after parking my ass on one of these, I like them even more.

    I loooooove my new Turbo.
