    step 1.

    you officially have just under 48 hours to ensure that instead of asking for a swig off of someone else's flask, you can be the cool kid with something to offer.

    go!

    I'm in... and I've got some swag to get rid of (you should see my basement). If i was really going to "bring it" I'd have way too much cargo to bike there (my bag is big but not enough for a complete Surly Instigator).

    Where/when are we meetin up?

    you people have no patience.

    alright.

    step 3.
    triple rock
    10:30 sunday.
    bar space has been reserved.
    (i know some people.)

    the swap meet ends at 2:30, so we're gonna eat and drink and head out all quick-like.

    don't worry, this doesn't end with only 3 steps.
    yer gonna have to wait for the rest though.

    any more joiners???

    Well, I've got the first two steps, so I guess I should be there for number three.

    However, if this turns into 12 steps I'll have to pass.

    Sounds like a fun ride, but what if you load up on stuff at the meet? Then you're finishing the ride with a frame on your back. Hmm. I have 3 old Trek frames (830) an old Raleigh that I've single sped/speeded (?), er converted to single speed, and there's two C-dale frames. I'm thinking maybe a sag van. then I can carry all the various parts as well (handlebars, pedals, cranks...)

    Can't wait to see it. You should carry cement on it everywhere for training purpouses. The guys I've seen with trailers always seem to be hauling a$$. Just this morning I was trying to catch the Peace Coffee delivery guy along the greenway. It actually took a little while...

    woot!!! My "real" fixie is together far enough to be test ridden!

    My other package from gnashbar containing lockring, tubes, and chain showed up this afternoon shortly after I got back from Sibley with my donor frame.

    I don't have a working brake yet, but I still have Sugino cranks, a different cog, and moustache bars on the way from aebike. I could really stand a longer stem for the time being, so I'll be scrounging around the basement.

    I'll probably be riding the new bike tomorrow, since I kind of disassembled part of the other bike to get working cranks, etc. It's either that or the tallbike, and I know how insecure y'all are around something bigger than you... ;-)

    I'll be there for certain. Anyone looking to get rid of a 56-57 cm track frame? I'm in the market.

    woot again. The bike now has a functional brake, sexy cork bar tape, a somewhat properly adjusted headset, and a lot less dirt and grime on the frame. Still needs a taller seatpost, possibly a longer stem, and a paint job.

    See y'all around 10:30, and there will not be a tallbike involved this time. I can smell the disappointment, too.

    I made the mistake of hitting Express Bikes (Snelling and Marshal) Saturday afternoon. They had a sweet Vitus aluminum frame, looks like a 58 or better. It would be a sweet bike to pair up with a carbon frame, and a singulator, as it has vert drops. I would even think of building it up for a geared frame, but man was it sweet. I went in looking for the Puch I heard was there, nice ride, too small for me, they also have a Gitane convert to single speed, looking mean with knobbie tyres.
    Andrew got to ride my GTB. I love making him sweat. He can taste how bad he'd like that bike, specially now with the fork and Brooks. I may just ditch all the bike stuff and ride that, just to do the ride. I have to convince myself that it is worthy of commuting to Rosedale and back three days a week.

    so, there's no step 4,
    yet.

    well maybe 'cept the part where at least half of us who WILL BE THERE BY 10:30 happened upon this party many hours ago, after we went to the bar fer awhile to find this party and ride together all dios no existe-like, then attended.

    if that made sense that's great.

    what i meant to say, was that WAS step 4.
    if you attended a saturday night ride with similar details elsewhere, yer golden.

    i have a feeling this needs 12 steps; no more, no less.
    8 to go.
    i might need help.

    looks like i'll be driving to the swap meet. my biggest goal is in finding a wheelset for my wife's conversion, so she and i will be attending in the prius.

    if she ever wakes up.
