    i remember what i wanted to ask!

    do you know of a decent chainring in 130 bcd that is the solid plate style like the FSA pro track/sugino messenger thats somewhere in the $50 range and is black?

    i want one like it if i decide to get the s300s, but the messenger one is almost as much as the crankset+bb, and the fsa website was confusing and i couldnt even find the pro track ring on there

    So... uh scrod... Its been a full weekend, you have a hurricane coming your way, and I havent gotten a shipping number or anything man. One would expect that you would bend over backwards to get my stuff in the mail. Wtf is up with this. Expect a bajillion emails pestering you until I get my package.

    What blows my mind is that we will most likely start receiving serious calls and e-mails just like that by tomorrow.

    Check out the Affinity track crankset. It is real nice looking. A lil more modern though.

    Scrod, I've never handled a Pake French so I was hoping to enlist your expertise. My 54cm BK fits me pretty well, but seeing as it's cracked I've been looking to replace it and have had a hard time deciding between the 53 and 55 Pake. I'm pretty sure the 55 is the way to go but a second opinion can't hurt.

    Would you suggest a carbon seatpost (there is an aero one for $40 at lbs) or a thomson seat post, or Is there something else that is noticably better?

    "A carbon seatpost" is pretty vague. The only part of you that will notice what seatpost you have is your eyes.

    If your current frame fits, pick the size Pake with a similar top tube length. If your current frame doesn't fit, use a fit calculator.

    its all good man just thinking ahead, no rush
    thinking about bikes makes me forget about all the bull**** around me

    have to do some thinking now
    i feel like 75s or omnoms would be overkill with this build, the frame flexes before my origin8 cranks as it is
    maybe il just go with the messengers, was interested in seeing what all this external bb hullabaloo is all about though

    went in to get a new seatpost, and it turns out mine is 24mm which is made of narwal tusk or something stupid hard to find. my question is, do you have any knowledge where I could find a 24mm without paying for a custom made one? or would shimming a 22mm be the best bet? thanks scrod in advance

    Best of luck. I never even see decent 24mm posts on eBay.

    Finding a shim and using something else may be your best bet.
