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)

I *love* my no BS LBS!

I a buddy and I just stopped by my favorite LBS. I picked up used but in excellent condition 36H high flange Campy Pista hubs for USD 50! The owner also threw in a NOS ITM bar for free. Cool.

My buddy picked up NOS 28H high flange Campy pista hubs, a used Campy rear cog, and NOS ITM bullhorns for USD 75!

Man, I love that place.....

It's so unfair. I get all the drawbacks of living in an Easter(ish) European country but none of the benefits. (And you had Mikhail Tal as well... Though we can call that one a draw with Judit Polgár)

I think this statement requires pictures; at least of Judit Polgár.

edit: Chess champions?

Yup.
Judit is actually a pretty attractive woman but not the pin-up girl type. Both have(had) an amizing style of chess. Tal was a crazy genius if there ever was one.

At the LBS where I've done most of my shopping, I was able to get a lightly used track wheelset made of campy record hubs laced to velocity aeroheads, cog, lockring and racelites for $150.

Was that a good purchase?

I picked up a new 32h double fixed phil wood the other day for 165. I think the shop sold it to me at cost to them accidently. Not a huge bargain, but nice price.

Totally unrelated to the topic other than Eastern European content but we just hired someone at work from Bulgaria and on his resume, he noted he was in "sport shape" and able to lift many heavy things. I couldn't help but think of Borat. I'm a terrible person.

Just the rear hub? That's close to retail, bub.
