    And thats it.
    They say that Obama could be my president but really InI don't care
    They say Biden makes my decisions but he don't, so I'm just not there
    and I'm gonna see the same lies coming in the next 4 years,
    So pardon me if I don't cry when your election goes the way it did

    1. BF admins to admit they screwed up by upgrading the software.
    2. BF admins/programmers to respond to specific complaints instead of simply replying with "we're working on the issues."
    3. If I can't get 1 & 2, then BF should rollback software to old version.

    1. Less whining on BF.
    2. More people posting helpful comments, especially in SS/FG.

    Getting back to the thread, I'm trying to build up more winter/rain gear.

    This is the only winter-ish tire I can find so far that might fit my Pista:

    Some socks I actually WOULD want:

    Maybe some rims if I'm extra good.

    A Raleigh One Way.

    One or two CETMA racks.


    And I'd still like an S3X hub too.

    i'd like some nice double toe straps (toshi, exustar, etc) some black MKS GR9 pedals and some quad gate cages. I'm sick of using cheap forte pedals/straps/clips

    It can be tough to find NMSW aeroheads. I ordered the parts for my wheelbuild through QBP and they didn't have any black NMSW aeroheads at the time.

    I have ordered at least 27 different parts in the last 30 days for my two new bikes. I don't expect Santa to be bringing me much.

    DUDE! That's the worst truing stand park has ever made, no joke; look for a used TS-2 if you can, and my personal favorite, the now discontinued TS-6.

    Just curious, what makes it a bad truing stand? Is it the materials. I ask because I actually had this one on my wishlist too. I am thinking now that I should change it.

    It sucks because you have to flip the wheel around for dishing (also only trues one side at a time), it's really flimsy for the price, radial truing is a ***** unless you have this thing mounted on the edge of a workbench. It's also super awkward to true a wheel with only one side attached; may as well just use your front fork and a popsicle stick.

    I'm not sure if you've tried truing in a stand before, but I think one of the biggest advantages is being able to adjust for dish as well as the ability to true laterally and vertically without ever taking the wheel out of the stand. I always take my time getting it set perfectly in there so that I'm not making unintended incremental changes from removing and refitting within the stand, which you have to do with the TS-8. You want to ideally work on all elements of truing at once, and with this stand, you simply can't do that.
