Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

That's not surprising due to what eBarf fees have risen to. If mine aren't 10% they are very close. Then there's PayPal fees..................

Today it's hot as Satan's balls slathered in Sriracha at the shop because someone decided to steal the central air conditioning unit from outside the building. They unbolted it right from the ground. It must have taken six guys to put that thing in the back of a truck. Mother****ers.

Damn, that sucks a lot! Copper isn't even worth as much as it used to be but I guess jerks will steal anything that isn't, err, is bolted to the ground.

just get square taper campy cranksets. they are balleur, and even more so when you mix them with current gen campy.

The funniest part is that it's the second time its happened.

Actually, it gives me a perfectly good excuse to close and spend the day floating around in the ocean with a beer in my hand. as soon as the morning mail pickup gets here, I'm gone.

That sort of thing happens a lot around here, especially with window units. It's not funny when it's some elderly person who could actually die from the heat.

I thought only certain year Campy cranks used the 144 BCD. I have some strada crankarms (not sure if Record, or what) that use a 130 BCD and I have a couple Sugino rings on them right now.

Vintage Campy and Sugino road cranks in the 1970s all used 144mm BCD chainrings. Also, older Campy and Sugino track cranks are 151mm BCD. I have both on my vintage bikes.

I suppose I should have clarified what I meant by "older"... I am thinking of the square taper 10 speed cranksets, which I believe have a 135mm BCD.

As far as I know, you can get either English or Italian BB cups for the new 2011 Power Torque cranks as well as the 2010 Ultra Torque cranks. I was thinking of doing the same with my Ciocc, but just decided to stick with what I got for now.

Dang, guess my recollection was probably wrong on my crankset BCD. I'll have to measure them some time.
