Mad at myself for not getting an Excel frame in my size when they were in stock and mad again that I can't squeeze into a 55. I take it from the product description that you will not be restocking these for a long time, if at all?

You know what would make you awesome? If you had free shipping on regular sized items after a certain price point. Or diiscount codes for non bf member refearals. Somebody has probably said this before.

But we're already awesome.

It's been thought about a lot. In order to do that stuff, we'd most likely need to raise some of our prices - especially now that the shop is up and running and there are quite a few more bills to pay. We're working on coming up with a few promotions, coupon codes, etc. that won't cause us to lose our asses. Coupon codes for non-BF member referrals is a good idea but I think it would be too hard to keep track of and too many people would take advantage. In order to make it work, we'd literally need the customer to e-mail us saying "Hi...I'm friends with so-and-so on BF" and we would generate/e-mail them back a one-time use coupon code. If I'm doing that all day, I'll have no time to do anything else.

It's not a super high polish but they're shiny. We can get them in colors now too.

Yo scrod, did those LR pliers send out yet?

Edit: Just got the Paypal email. Were you able to send it out to my office address I left in the notes, or did it go to my house?

Scrod, can you somehow get a hold of something like this: http://www.tracksupermarket.com/inde...roducts_id=330

Maybe JUST the bracket part? Maybe... just MAKE the bracket part?!

I guess it's too late because I already ordered a fork LOLWTFBBQ

One more question: Can I buy JUST a crown race for the FSA Orbit Headset? (So I can switch forks if I want to)

EDIT: I've seen some for sale, but not 1" :C Would it be possible to order one through you?

We can get crown races for certain FSA headsets. The ones I can't can be ordered directly from FSA's site but for whatever reason, they charge $6 shipping (which is absurd). I'll check tomorrow and see if I can snag one for you.

Thanks Scrod! Let me know what's up. Just to make sure, it's a 1" FSA Orbit X (Not regular FSA Orbit, if there is one).

I really wish you were my LBS mannn.

**** out of luck. QBP only stocks certain sizes. You can order it directly from here but FSA's shipping costs are stupid.

A decent shop should only charge you a few bucks to remove the crown race and re-install it on your new fork.

Cool, thanks for checking.

Any luck with seeing if you guys can stock that brake bracket thing?

Sorry. I didn't think you needed it anymore. We can get 'em. $65.

EAI makes a version of it too:



That one will be $50.

Oh awesome. Yeah, I don't really need it anymore, but it's nice to know that you can get them. I can throw more business your way as I make new friends at the track

Our first wave of DZR stuff arrived today!

I know I mentioned it here before but should we offer a shoes/pedals combo?

I think so too but we've been going back and forth about it so I figured I'd let the people decide.

We're thinking about either Shimano A520s (which we also now have in stock) or A600s. Leaning toward A520s because we'd be able to offer them at a better price when paired with the shoes.

Thoughts?

A520 won't work with DZRs (Tried the combo) The platform part of the pedal doesn't allow the clip to go deep enough into the shoe to actually lock with the cleat.

I'd say M520/M540
