    It would be cooler if you titled the thread: "L@@KING for Nitto..."

    I'm sorry for wasting your time. I'm a jack@$$. I have no idea where to get nittos in DC, I've never even been there!

    yeah right? college town? wthell is that?

    if you're talking about revolutions and georgetown bike pro,
    well one things for sure they don't have some nitto's laying around

    actually the guys down at revolutions were working on a track bike this afternoon.
    someone had powdercoated a bent frame and put on some phil wood parts

    *sigh* yeah,, had a good chuckle about that one

    but if he was talking about college park i seem to remember a really cool shop out there somewhere. route 1 runs straight through it so i'd check it out.

    wish i could help you more there

    No, no, no. The only place with any track stuff in dc is citybikes on columbia in adams morgan. See Shawn. I can all but promise you he won't have any nitto drops, but he will have some mks stuff, eai cogs, clips & straps, cranks, etc. He'll also order anything you want. I mention that because he frequently uses a single order as an excuse to order five things (like maybe five pairs of drops). Just go see him.

    Mt Airy Bicycles and it's sister shop College Park Bicycles. These guys always seem to have some unique stuff and are good folks. I'd give them a shot.

    Chad and Larry are good guys its true. But trust me I mined out the majority of their track stuff in about 1995. They have a couple frames and maybe some old cranks on the wall, but they don't have any Nitto drops. Still, the place is like a shrine (CPB) and it is nice to go there and pray.

    If the PDF of their classic/vintage inventory is accurate, they have some amazing stuff stashed away.

    It'd be nice if that PDF inventory contained prices. That is a lot of bikes.

    I noticed the "missive from Larry" on May 3rd includes a piece about Coombe pedals. I'm happy to say that is what I ride and I agree with Larry. www.coombe.com. I ride them on both fixed and road and they are 'the' pedals as Larry would say.

    That's good service. However, I hate being a tire kicker - asking questions about prices when I don't have a real strong intention of buying anything. Also, I'm more curious about what their prics are like generally than for any one specific bike.

    If you don't mind sharing, what did you ask about and what were the prices like?

    I don't mind sharing, but I'll PM you the pricing.

    1985 Sanino Track in 59cm was my primary interest http://www.bike123.com/photo%20gallery/543.htm

    I asked about two others, but they were wayyyyyyy old school museum pieces. And as for tire kicking, we're promoting their business by talking about them on a board. I'm sure they'll appreciate the extra walk ins.

    Hey I am not from the area..first! I gave my input..second.. If you knew what I was saying just post" Ceya the place is College Park not TOWN..Simple! If you know what spots have them post, if not say they don't have..Simple!

    I was there when NYC messengers and DC messengers used to ride to each city during the year..For us was July 4th. Last known one was 1992 first on was 1989.
