Re: industry nine wheelset - pics!

That's funny - because I personally know of both a broken park bike and race link, and don't even pay much attention to that scene.

Inari Silver would be cool. It has a greenish color to it.


Is that the same Bordeaux that was on the Corrado?

Re: I need to pick a color

not sure how great it would be for people KILLING IT IN THE STREETS or going terribly big though. This is my new and only do-it-all hoss, so it may spend some time in the air, but will mostly attend to singletrack and commuting duties.

Yessum, 'specially when dealing with disc brakes. Also allows for better tire clearance and makes chain tensioning a teensy bit less involved.

why bother running an bmx/mtb adaptor when you're just going to use profiles? just use american cups/bearings.

Re: Okemo's nice little addition.

I'm predominantly a trail rider on my mountain bike, and have honestly never once attempted a grind - but certainly plenty others have and love it, and I see snow parks in the same light. I also must say I'm awfully partial to those shots of skiers/boarders riding huge bent spruces in the backcountr...

Re: Home stereo components...

James - you've given me some great ideas. I can build full-range single driver speakers for very, very cheap - the only real downside is I have NO room to put a set of full-sized horns - not to mention not owning anything to drive them.

yeah i want disc mounts. Price range between 1 and 200. In that case, for rediculous pimp value, get a Phill Wood. Soooo hot. Or a Paul. Keep in mind he needs to buy the freewheel for that price as well if he goes with PW, which won't be under 2 bills. My suggestion? White Industries Eno hub or Sur...

Re: Jeremy Tribute Video

what's the deal with the stickers? I heard they were available, but I don't get out to any of the northeast events (and was out of town for BB.) Is there some way for me to buy 'em online? I'd really like to have one for my new frame when it shows.
