Just a guess, but he's probably looking for Old LaHonda and Pagemill. See, I'm psychic! (or is that psychotic?).

Ok, I also saw that the OP posted the same question on that *other* internet bike forum, but with a tad more info.

Move me to the extremely highly likely list and add MyLilPony.

I'm trying to get my steel bike going. It's up, except I am undecieded on pedals. I have toe clips and straps now. I'm considering having teh french threads re-tapped, and adding clipless, but I really am too cheap....
