Park Tool comes through again. I call them up on my Park Tensiometer, bought used of course. Mine did not come with the nifty conversion card. No problem, they sent me one.

Their customer service is really outstanding.

Yesterday, enough CXRay spokes to build up my Saavedra turbo tubular rims and Novatec 10s Campy hubs in to a nice 1160g wheelset for my Dardo. Not C&V, but it's incentive for me to lose some weight to be able to ride them.

They use cheaper fuel such as wood or pellets. Some insulate their homes better.

I won one of those in a race somewhere back in the '70's- a little heavy, but they work really well-

I got a used "Breakfast at Tiffany's- Henry Mancini CD- to finally replace the one I lost when I was flooded out by 7 feet of water back in June '08- and it must've got left inside the carousel- I recovered most of my CDs- but lost all the cases and cover- by washing them in a sink almost they were like dishes- but almost all of them play OK- a few slight glitches.

The last bike part I got was a few months back- an extra long rear brake for a cruiser frame, I'm going to motor and have super baskets on the front and rear, and call My Chinese Junk- should carry about five sacks of grocery's- at 150 mpg.

7 pairs but the sizes are random among the pairs right? I used to have, may still do, a pair like those grey one with the blue strap. Nice shoe
