    Will you have any 144BCD silver Velosolo chainrings?

    We definitely will. VeloSolo was out of them at the time we placed our initial order but they should be here soon.

    I'm blown away by them.

    Aside from gear ratios, I've got identical setups (Sugino 75s, K710-SL chain and Soma cog) on both my 722 and Kagero - the only difference is the chainrings. The VeloSolo ring is actually quieter/smoother than the 75 ring and every bit as round.

    Guess we know what chainring to buy. How do you compare it to the FSA? I'm guessing the Velosolo is the better choice since they're about the same price.

    re: chainring: well damn... - and they don't look too shabby either. I see a black one in the mash's future. do they ever go over 48t?


    also I'm sure you saw, but ordered a second headset late last night. was probably too late to shave you a box, but I take a different approach when ordering from retro-g since each item has its own shipping price and just order what i want, when I want it, instead of letting stuff stack up to a certain value with other sites. it's a good move by you

    I really liked my FSA chainring. Also really round and about as quiet as the 75 ring.

    Are you changing your mind calv?

    Nah. I like both the Velosolo and FSA ring, and I'm usually one to choose performance > aesthetics..

    But I REALLY like the FSA one!!

    I'll get a Velosolo ring for another bike later (2012 722? ). Or my girlfriends if I can find a better + nicer bike that fits.

    Yeah I saw that. We had already sent your wheelset and other headset out though...

    Everything does have a set shipping cost based on weight of that particular item but is automatically discounted by a percentage when other things are added to the order. Example: if you buy a Turbo saddle, the shipping charge is 8 bucks. Buy two and the combined shipping is $12.

    Also, once orders reach a certain dollar amount it automatically figures in the cost of insurance.

    oh wow that's good to know, I didn't know it combined like that. I guess I never played around with it enough so normally if i just need something from you I get it right then. I wasn't trying to 'complain' about the shipping incase it came off like that, because you're still cheaper and/or better than other places 99% of the time

    I also wanted to praise you for very subtle changes to enhance the RG site, man.

    Those vertical bars are much easier on the eyes than the slashes were.

    Damn calv - glad you noticed. Those slashes made everything look like one big word and were driving me crazy.

    In case you're wondering, I'm just waiting until I can get over to the shop and grab those pedals/clips/straps to ship your stuff.

    Scrod, what shipping company do you use? I imagine it'll take a while to get my order, but about how long would it take to get to Cali?

    I noticed too, but didn't want to seem like I pay way too much attention to your website, so I didn't say anything.

    We use USPS for the majority of stuff. Your order was shipped Priority Mail so it should only take a couple of days.

    I think every single time we've put something new up on the site, calv has reported here within 10 minutes.

    Nice. It's on my recent pages thing in Safari, so I check it briefly every few times I open a new tab when I'm just browsing.

    When will the 2012 722TS start being sold? I thought I recalled you had mentioned it'd be a frame/fork combo, any idea of a price-ish? I understand if it's confidential information.
