    Okay, I'm back for round two.

    This is a tough one and I'll back it with some brief history for those who may not know why I ride Leaders. As some of you may know, Leader approached me to design some shirts for them a while back and through that agreement, they hooked us up with some free stuff. I was impressed - not only by the frames we received but also by how chill they are and how easy it was to work with them. As we began dealing with them more and developing actual friendships, I quickly realized that they really are a good company with great customer service who are really making every effort to get out from the bad rep they once had and have the product to back it. Walking like you talk it has always been an important quality in my eyes. As one who always tends to be somewhat supportive of the "underdog", I see Leader for what they are and have respect for what they're doing. Honestly, if I thought their products were crap and everyone who worked there treated us like ********, I simply wouldn't ride their frames - free or not.

    That being said and getting back to hammy's question, I think my steel bike would be a Bareknuckle or Godzilla. My aluminum bike would most likely be a Dodici Gara (although the 2012 model doesn't do as much for me as last year's) or a Livery Aluminum Aero - or both.

    Boxers (or commando in the summer) when I'm off the bike, boxer briefs or seamless compression shorts when I'm riding - unless it's a long ride, then I'm rocking Pearl Izumi liners beneath my shorts.

    My dreads are zero effort. I literally just stopped brushing it.

    I reviewed all the stickies and they all have good reason to stay stuck. If anyone feels differently, let me know.

    Dear Scrod,

    How do you carry your stuff while riding? Do you put in a jersey? Or do you carry a hip pack? (I'm not even going to ask if you have a saddlebag...) And what do you carry too?

    It was great! Friday night I finished building my wheels. Saturday we slept in a bit, made breakfast and went out to do some errands. Came back, did some riding then went out for dinner/beers with some friends. Sunday I got up early and did a 50 mile ride for cancer support/research. Ended up doing closer to 65 miles because I took a wrong turn and still made it back before a lot of the roadies. 52/17 FTW.

    As much as I do love Keith, Black Flag wasn't dialed in yet when he was singing. Ron was better but Dez kills it. Henry doesn't even count.

    Thanks for the good words and for noticing what our motive is.

    I've never had that trouble with LizardSkins. are you removing the paper from the little adhesive strip on the back?

    When I'm bringing my laptop and a bunch of other crap back and forth between the space and home, my medium Timbuk2 bag works well. If I'm just out riding around for leisure, bar-hopping or whatever and need to carry a lock, it's a hip bag. I'm I'm on an epic ride, it's a jersey and sometimes a small saddle bag to hold tools and such.

    I usually always have a stubby 15mm wrench, multi tool, Co2 inflator and a couple of cartridges, self-adhesive patch kit and (usually) a spare tube.

    Just for yesterday's ride. I ran a brake and a machined front rim too.

    I usually stick with 49/17.

    Ok. The bro who sold me my concept was running a miche bb. He stripped the tightening threads and drilled the cup to be able to get it on and off. incredibly stupid imo, but I have decided not to ride it until I get a new bottom bracket.

    What would you suggest? Don't really want to go low end shimano, but the matching Sugino 75 bb for my cranks is around ~$100. Should i just splurge for the sugino?

    The Sugino 75 BB is great but will require fairly regular maintenance to keep it that way. I've had absolutely no issues with my Protype from Ben's and as I said to Leuky somewhere else, I'd rather replace a $35 sealed cartridge BB every now when it wears out and then than have to mess with caged ball bearings.

    I also use the Protype and am happy with it.

    Scrod, are you using the retrogression hip bag? I need something to replace the bag I usually carry on my leisure rides(it tends to slip and dig into my shoulder sometimes).

    How secure is the belt? any slippage? Is the bag comfortable with a full load?(u-lock, multi tool, patch kit, co2 pump, spare tube, etc.)

    With the bag I'm currently using my u-lock will dig into my back if there's a lot in the bag.
    With Metta.

    I don't know, man. Just age.

    No, this thread has been fun so far. Waking up this morning and having to answer 30 questions in a row while trying to get work done was a bit rough though.

    I have a lot. My most recent one - silly as it is - are the words SWEET and DANDY written on my toes. The story behind it? I was drunk at a party where there was tattoo equipment present. I did it on myself. Good times.

    Here's a pic taken the day after:



    BTW - "Sweet & Dandy" is a song by reggae legends Toots and the Maytals.

    Actually, it's two coffee cans with a honeydew melon balancing on top.

    I really don't know how the poor girl does it (but I'm glad she does). She's been putting up with my brand of bull**** for nearly six years now. We have a tremendous amount of fun together and are constantly laughing. That's extremely important. Even when we occasionally get grumpy and bicker about dumb stuff, we always end up cracking up. She's my best friend in the whole world.
