Typically wheel build labor for you BFSSFGers is around 35-45 bucks per wheel. Considering the shop hourly labor rate of $60/hour, we feel that's that's a decent deal.

I keep checking back on the Retrogression website every now and then even though I have no money for bike stuff right now. You're getting crazy amounts of inventory variety these days! Keep up the good work, man! Hopefully once I get more cash headed my direction I can hit up your store. As a business student that hopes to start one of his own some day I always like seeing small business really take off. You guys are killing it out there!

Can you make a shirt with this "I ride fixe gear. No brakes. can't stop (you know the rest)?

Or is that copyrighted? I'm not well versed in copyright law.

Actually, we were thinking of making a shirt featuring Whitney Houston on a fixed gear that says "Can't stop, don't want to".

Seriously. I like doing stuff that has to do with what we're talking about here on the forum though because after all, this is where the whole thing started with the Sheldon shirt nearly three years ago. Maybe I'll come up with a pre-order deal for some sort of BFSSFG-specific stuff again soon.

Are you able to order from overseas suppliers, such as Brick Lane Bikes?

Brick Lane is a bike shop that (for the most part) sells their own line of products. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure their stuff is only available through them directly.

Damn, tried to order the king hubs from one of their shops in Rotterdam. They failed to send me a tracking number and it's been 4 weeks, so I had to ask for a refund; got the refund today.

How do you like the Novatecs laced to the A23s? I may just order those. The main reason I wanted those BLB King Hubs was due to the M8 end bolts. Don't think that calls for the extra 150$.

I love my wheelset and those Novatec hubs are no frills but awesome. If you want burly axle bolts you could always go with the All-city new Sheriffs.

Noticed you posted the Godzilla and Bare Knuckle. Just curious on the headset specifications on them; there's nothing in the descriptions regarding it, but some pictures have headsets installed and some don't.

C'mon, man! It says right in the descriptions!

The Godzilla is 1" threadless (unless you use a threaded fork) and the BK is 1/18" threadless.

They're both gorgeous and it's hard to favor one over the other based on overall quality.

For myself, I think I'd lean toward the Bare Knuckle because it's a little more burly and I'm not a small dude. I was hell-bent on building up a Godzilla but I think the BK suits me better.

Oh - and the forks on EAI frames are different than found on the Leader 722 and other bikes. They're extremely similar at first glance but the blades are thinner and they have much smaller, nicer dropouts (with no lawyer tabs). They're also lighter.

i saw the headtube sizes, I meant that some pictures have headset cups installed and some dont, which might imply that a headset may be included or not. In one of the BK pictures the frame and fork are put together and almost look like it'd take an integrated headset(which I'm assuming is not the case). Just curious is all.

Those are just plastic cups holding the steerer in the head tube for display purposes.
