Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Help: Bomber Pro [Tsuruoka Racing, Ltd.]

Thanks to Tanabe-san [Kalavinka], I've finally pinpointed BP on the map. However, I have tried with no luck to get in touch w/ the folks there, at Tsuruoka Racing, Ltd. (more popularly known as BP); not surprised I haven't been able to contact them.
A number of folks have attempted to help me stateside, w/ no luck either.

REQUEST:

Is there anyone in the Saitama Prefecture that could pick up some replacement decals for me (I'm in Boston)? If you, or anyone you know, is nearby, I would love to hear from you. Please PM me w/ any details.

Tomity?

I have spoken with both Tomity-san and Stratton - nada.
Next to going over there yourself, I am not sure what you can do next (aside from, as I had mentioned in email, having the decals reporduced using the "Ballpark_Weiner" font)

Ah, so you were near the foxpoint area.

ESP - still good, but not the same as it was when it first opened. I met Paul and Michele when they opened in 97.

Dash?

How about Coffee Exchange? Great hangout/coffee.

Forget ESP, though - I want my damn BP stickers!!!

Like Sicilia's Pizza? Looks like a place where you get a dead fish and a rose in a paper bag. Chicago-STYLE pizza, really good. But..... still not Chicago pizza.

How's about a reunion in Providence? As part of our tour-de-prov, we can stop by Circle A, and say hi to Chris B.

Sicilia's pizza is the ****. I want to go out there at the end of May, so I can see some of my friends graduate and their senior shows. (I went to RISD).

Yes, Ocean is gone. Now a Vietnamese-run place. Not the same, but I hear their food is decent.

Speaking of Viet... I want some Pho!

Now, there's a Coldstone creamery next to Starbucks - nasty. Did you know that Coldstone gets their icecream from Sysco food distributors? And, remember Spiritus Fermenti? Great beer selection.

What year did you graduate?

Me - Brown POS (02). Brown is full of I-wanna-be-as-cool-as-RISD-kids. But, those who tried always managed to... not look quite right.

You know, RISD was given -yes GIVEN- that huge-ass rundown bank in downtown, previously owned by Lifespan, to be used as dorms. $$$$$$$$$

You should come back, and we can ride... to Sicilia's, if you really want to.

You're smart to be in S.F. I grew up in Cupertino.

I just graduated last year, 2005.. So I'm still fresh out. I remember the brown kids trying to befriend us really hard though, it was always really akward. But amusing. I tended to just stick with my little crew and hide though. Fun times, I miss it already. And Spiritus Fermenti. How many 100s of dollars did I spend there. Dear lord. They have my favorite beer ever which I've yet to find in SF. XINGU.

I had pizza in Providence that had cheese-filled tortellini on it. It was intense.
