Ever thought about carrying velo orange? My usual joint that dealed them moved to PDX due to a lack of hipster population here.

QBP does stock a limited selection of Velo Orange stuff but not everything. VO is also very strict about MSRP policies and we wouldn't be able to sell the stuff for any less than on the their site. We have been thinking about carrying a few things, though. What are you looking for?

Not sure if I should take this to a PM but I was thinking of a VO 1 1/8ths headset spacer bell mount in combination w/ either a soma distributed crane karen or sakura bell in either brass or copper.

The bell mount is something only available through VO. I may have one hanging around though. I'll dig around for it tomorrow.

Not sure if this should be in this thread or the other one, but do you offer a seatpost that has more setback than the Deda RS01? Does the Thompson with the bend end up being more or less?

The "setback" Thomson actually has much less offset than most other standard seatposts. The RS01 has quite a bit. When compared side by side with a VO Grand Cru, the amount of setback is nearly identical.

I'll do some research though and see what we can come up with.

edit: You have a Turbo, right? It is okay to slide it back a wee bit past the "stop" marks on the rails.

I do, and thanks I'll try that, I really only want 5mm or so more if I can

I think I should have gone with a 55, because of the seat tube angle/TT length. Oh well.

How much does the RS01 in 27.2 clamp size weight? CC has the 31.8 listed as 350g.

It may happen. One big reason I didn't like clipless is that I couldn't find a shoe that my wide platypus flippers fit into and I'm not really the kind of person that wants to change my shoes every time I ride my bike.

The new DZR Minna looks awesome and I've been hearing good things.



Angie's been rocking DZRs for a while now and loves them.

I have had the midnights since Christmas and I love them. Once broken in they are easily wearable all day.

That's what Angie says about hers too. I can't wait to get them in stock and try a pair out.

I wonder if it'll be cheaper to buy from you, or from a local dealer for their stuff.... lol

I really enjoy mine now that they're broken in. They're not the most comfortable shoes if you need to walk a few miles in them, but compared to a normal clipless shoe, they're like walking on pillows.

They offered me the black ones when they thought my color sold out, but I feel like a dumbass in all black sneakers for some reason
