Now THAT's what I'm talking about!

Gina over at King Kog first told me about these side hack's a couple of years ago. Never seen one up on the bay though. Soooo bitchin'!

Also, if anyone happens to have some of these lying around please let me know. They make reorganizing my apartment WAY more manageable...

Alright, time for you bitches to spend some cash money millions!

...or at least forward this around to some peoples who can:

Just trying to push a few of these Jacksons out the door right now on ebay. Be sure to scope out the auction:

BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in a frame DO NOT buy it on ebay if you can help it. Fucking final value fees are killin' me over here...

57cm boxed Cream with Dark Moss Green lug lining w/ Aerohead lugs!

56cm Boxed Green with Cream White panels and Blue lining!

52cm ST CTT, 53cmTT Matte Black and Hott Pink- SICK!!!

57cm ST CTT, 56.5cmTT Matte Grey with Red front panel and Blue lining!

Other details include: Paul Adjustable dropouts, dimpled rear seat tube, two tone paint job w/lug lining, made from 631 Reynolds, Aggressive track geometry and Drilled fork for a front brake on the last three ONLY. Top 57cm Aerohead one has both front and rear drilling and cable braze-ons with a slightly more lax geometry...

Prices are no joke on these and you can blame that on our wonderful man in charge. Also, keep in mind that a standard plain jane 'off the peg' frame from BJ shipped costs $860 (435). These ones obviously have a lot more going on that a boring single paint job. From what I hear Jackson is kinda back up right now. Ours are ready to go right MFing NOW!

Be sure and let me know if any of all ya'll gotst any questions for me...

Vintage Schwinn Paramount T-A-N-D-E-M- complete: $1249

Let the blog tagging begin!

Low and behold I arrive at home tonight after a long hard day at work only to find that I have once again been mention on the ever popular Bike Snob NYC blog. At first I was filled with dread recalling my first apperance on his site. Low and behold, he actually said I was one of his favorite blogs and tagged me! I suddenly found myself flushed with glee like when a school girl gets asked out to the homecoming dance by the team quarterback...

After the initial shock and gaiety subsided, it occurred to me this could just be some sneaky ploy of the snob to get me to do/say/write something ridiculous that he could then use to his advantage when next he felt the desire to mock me. Realizing how unbelievably paranoid and ludicrous the dialog was going through my head, I decided to go back to my original plan for the evening: Watching adult swim and rubbing one out to one of the XXX torrent files I'd downloaded the previous night in anticipation desperation for this evening...

A few hours later with the sweat wiped from my brow and yet another generation amongst the many untold civilizations lost to the ages, I got back to completing this stupid questionnaire...

So here we go:

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?

I'll have to agree with the snob on this one and go with something more suited towards both off road riding and on. Most likely something in a cross style(ish) bike since I'm just not a fan of Mountain Bikes...

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?

Fortunately I've been BEYOND lucky enough to have not one, not two, but a whole stable of dream bikes. However, to be fair to the question I would have to say my Bilenky is my dream-dream bike. Out of all of them it's the one I spent the most time conjuring it's design and overall aesthetic. Where as the rest were just solid gold finds...

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?

I would have to say that one of my favorite rides is from the Manhattan side GW bridge down to 57th street. It's just a nice stretch of green way that isn't too crowded and offers some pretty great scenery. One of my favorite things about the ride would have to be the area where that dude builds those awesome drift wood sculptures along the banks of the Hudson. They're fucking awesome and keep getting better!

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?

Prob the same type of person that would drive a massive SUV with a yellow ribbon magnet on the bumper and honk at me for being in the way... I would've said my mother but she actually doesn't want me to ride any bikes at all...

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrow minded?

Just roadies for me thanks. Besides, my cycling tunnel vision only allows me to focus in on the intricate details of one facet of cycling at a time...

Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.

I've never ridden one and most likely never will. The only circumstance I could imagine that would actually get me to ride one is by gunpoint...

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?

Hells fucking no and fuck fucking no...

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?

This is a really difficult one for me seeing as how I love both ice cream AND bicycles almost equally, hehe.. ug.. God I'm fat.. Okay, I'll stick with bicycles since I haven't really engaged in many other extracurricular activities lately outside of slap boxing the one eyed champ now and again...

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.

Okay, I thought of a few for this one:

Q) How many ridable bikes do you currently own?
A) 9

Q) We all love riding, but what are some of the things you hate or bother you about it?
A) Shifting my bits around in the saddle and/or having to let a long fart go while riding a fixie

Q) How many times have you been hit by a car? any injuries?
A) 6 - 0

You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?

Whenever I think of bears I'm reminded of that scene in Borat where the kids get chased off by the one in the ice cream truck. I would undoubtingly act in a similar manner unless of course I had a wasp knife on me. In which case I would stab that bitch in the heart and freeze that shit!

Now, tag three biking bloggers. List them below.

Prolly is not Probably

Hipster Nascar

The Rotten Club

By the way snobby, I hope you have some extra steel wool leftover to help wash the teeny girl feeling that's crawling all over me after writing this fucking post...

Whooooooooooaa not one but TWO NOS 85' Cinellis??? Daaayymm!

Sick sick siiiiiick!!!

Thursday, July 17, 2008


This is probably the only other Alan track frame I've ever seen aside from mine, and it sold for $1700??? Damn man, mine is in WAY better condition and it's a 77'! Also has a little crack in the HT which is very common on these frames. I'll have to post a pic of mine in a later update...

UPDATE: Looks like this bad boy is back up for sale again. It appears the previous winning bidder was a douche as most are...


Good fucking shit man- DAMN!!!

So another update on my previous post about the alleged Bilenky copy cat bike. Turns out the dude is really cool and an EXCELLENT designer/builder! Check it out:

Fuck yea...

Fuck yea...


Killer concept car project too!

I wanna know what he plans on stuffing under the hood...

So I guess that would make his Rog a Bilenky tribute-Hetchins tribute?, hehe. Reguardless I know Steve and the boys will get a wicked kick out of it...

Be sure to scope out the rest of his site for more good shit...

Olli man, you can use my workshop anytime you like when you come visit the states...

Speaking of Pista Concepts, here's a steal of a deal on a complete set-up!

Frame, Zipp Wheels and dura Ace cranks for a G?! AND in mint new condition??!!! I'd buy it myself, part it out and re-sell if I had some extra cash right now. I'd probs make an extra $300 for the effort knowing how much concepts sell for. Esp 04' models- oooo sooo valuable! fucking wankers...

UPDATE: Now sold! Only about 3-4 hours transpired after I posted it...


ffff ffff fff ff FUCKING HELL MAN!!!

Let's just think about this for a second. $1525.. That same amount could get you ROLLING on not one but TWO nice bikes with money to spare. Or even one really nice one, and a beater to lock up around town. The possibilities are endless...



Thanks Eric! Not sure how this one slipped by my radar...

Pavement lickingly deeeeep drops...

I'd like to see someone use these in combination with a 24" front wheel!


Someone's bitin off mah mufuckin' steez!!!

I just saw this on the NYC fixed forum:



and mine:

Not really sure what to make of it. No idea where it came from or who built it either. Kinda crazy how the person went to all the trouble of rebuilding the frame to mimic mine. I mean, they must've seen or been inspired by my Bilenky. There's NO way this one's a coincidence...

UPDATE: Turns out some Finnish dude is the one responsible for the build. Google translation didn't really work so I was unable to read up on it much...


NOS Philippe Adjustable Stem!

Yep.. Another one. Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

aaawww yeeeaaaahhh...
