    Ask Scrod

    As requested by Street Rider, here's the thread that was bound to happen sooner or later. Please keep in mind that there is already a Retrogression thread in the marketplace, where updates and answers to questions about stuff we sell are posted on a regular basis.

    Bombs away!

    Dear Dave,

    Did you create this thread to take some load off of poor Ol' Carleton?

    Carelton thread is for those who want their future purchases to come with a cup of buzzkill when he tells you why Cinelli, Bianchi, H+Son etc are pieces of crap (I kid)

    Dear Scrod, do you wash your hair

    So, to basically continue that little conversation from earlier, would this work as a BB replacement since they actually have 107?

    ^that's funny.

    but srslys, everyone is going to ask you about stuff you sell. like, for instance, who makes your foot straps? Even though I'd be paying 20$ more, should I support a company that hand makes them right in my own home town?! I think the answer is yes. However, this question could be regarded as an ethical question regarding the economics involved in supporting online stores vs local production practices. Speaking of which, HAmfOH, you should get a LOW if you really want one.

    let's say all Leader frames evaporate into thin air and the company does the same. What kind of frame would Scrod be on? (realistically priced)

    Can we unsticky some stuff? 10 threads is pretty ridiculous. I'm not calling out this thread specifically but I'm sure there's something up there you can drop.

    you should just make a subforum for formerly stickied threads

    Wow...look at me starting a thread like this and going to bed. I'm off to a great start!

    Not really to take some of the load off of him but more because people were starting to ask me specific questions in his thread. I feel the "Dear Carleton" thread has been a big success and asset to the forum and he's been amazing with keeping up with it and answering certain types of questions.

    Quote Originally Posted by hamfoh View Post

    Occasionally, yes. I usually just rinse it really well when in the shower because shampoo actually contains chemicals that make your hair unhealthy, which is how they are able to convince you that you must also purchase expensive conditioners and other "hair care" products. When I do, it's with Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap.

    Yes, but you can find it cheaper.

    Quote Originally Posted by hamfoh View Post

    Park Tool BBT-22. Pro tip: get yourself a 2" bolt with the same threads as a standard crank arm bolt and thread it into your spindle (through the BB tool) to keep it from falling off while you're installing/removing.

    Really, there's already a thread about this that a lot of people frequent. To answer your question though (which I feel is less about product and more about ethics) - our straps are hand made by myself, Angie and a friend of ours. We're in no way a giant "online retailer" and by buying stuff from the Retrogression site, you're still supporting small independent business run by people who are doing things their own way. I do understand wanting to buy local though.

    I've got to run but I'll get to anything I didn't answer after I get some work done.

    not really question, just comment:
    I love how you run your online shop and only carry more or less sensible products at correct prices. There is just the right balance of form/function/price throughout the store.

    question: how do i wrap these lizard skins so they don't slide down my bars? My roommate did his bars last week and the wrap seems to be sliding. Is this a normal problem for the lizard skins? All i have heard on here is that they are the shiz.
