    I'm bored, I have a thing for pint glasses. I have some Cane Creek's, any other brands have beer glasses?

    Most regular shampoo will dry out your beard, causing the hairs to break. If your beard is short this isn't too much of a problem but it it's long, it could be catastrophic.

    I wash my beard with Dr. Bronner's soap and condition it every once in a while with pure coconut oil.

    I use a shampoo with conditioner on mine once a week or so hoping to make it a little softer (the wife likes the look but doesn't like the pokiness). Doesn't really work.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Scrod,

    Do you know of any bars similar to the Nitto b260AA, but with a 31.8mm clamp? The risers I have now are too wide and they can't be cut down far enough. I'd rather not change the stem if I can avoid it.

    They're Ritchey risers, and I've already cut them down. But I can't cut them any further, else there's not enough room for everything before the bend. They're at about 570mm now. I'd like to get closer to 500mm.

    My boss just got a Pake French 75 and Omniums. There's maybe 1mm max between the crankarms and the chainstay. Normal?

    That's pretty damn close! I built one up for a customer that had about 3mm.

    Hmm... Possibly installed wrong? I didn't do the labor, so I'm not certain what he did.

    Yes. I physically measured several of them on hand at the shop after ddeadserious had problems with his and found variances in both spider thickness and Q-factor.

    I'm looking for a bike for my boss, and until the 53cm kilo tt comes back in stock I'm trying to find some other options to throw her way.

    Is there anything else you could recommend that would be similar price wise and geo? No big rush, for the most part I'm trying to hold her off to get the kilo.

    What type of riding does she plan on doing? Are you sure tight track geo is what she's really looking for?

    Just going to be city riding, and she liked my IRO mk5. They're of similar geo so I figured it might be worth a shot.

    She's trying to find something over her current hybrid which doesn't seem to be working out well for her. She wanted to get a road bike, but seems unsure if she'll like the riding position. So hoping to forego spending a bunch of money on a well equipped road bike, I thought single was the best option.

    I'm still perusing craigslist daily just in case something pops up, but as far as new options go, the kilo is obviously one of the better choices in overall quality. I'm not opposed to finding something with a bit more relaxed geo if at all possible though.

    Been trying to keep an eye, haven't seen them when I looked. Was there an email sent out that I missed? I was thinking the stripper or the orange/chrome.

    Are you sleeping with your boss? If so, get her a gold one.
