Remember those Dura Ace Track cranks from the pre-previous post?


oooooo, I know this one's gotta sting the majority of you wankers- mwahahaha!

But what-the-fuck-ever, they were used and not super pretty. I decided to toss em on on my Concept when I was swapping out the Phil BB for a Miche. NOTE: Steel BB rings aren't exactly the best idea for aluminum BB's. I actually knew that before I put em in there but since I'm slightly retarded I did it anyway..

I'm pretty psyched about the cranks cause they weight 230 grams less than the Andels. Also because I know it'll annoy people to know that I rattlecanned dem bitches up!

Update: If you think that hurts, check this shit out:

Bike Repair from Stegnco on Vimeo.


Damn.. I didn't realize they made Vittoria Zaffiro's THAT big..

So totally bitchin'!


I can't even begin to describe how much it WOUNDED me to let this one go...

I mean, come on, not only does it have a pavement licking front 24" wheel but a REAR 24" as well? How fucking sick is that?!

I really, really wanted to get this thing and mount some long monkey bars on it with a banana seat- KRATE TARCK BIKE!!! Alas.. I did not...

BUT.. I did however get a couple of awesome deals on some very good condition Paul/DT/DeepV/Gatorskin/EA wheelset and used Dura Ace cranks for all of four hundy! Local buy too so zero shipping $$$

A piece of advice to those of you on the bay: NEVER sell anything and have it end on major holiday when people aren't either at work, or traveling to see family etc.. Also, if you're a loser like me and have the time to spend looking around on ebay that day, sort your searches by 'ending soonest'. Chances are you can get some good deals on stuff due to the slight drop in activity...

Well, as you can imagine it was a 'productive' morning. Satisfied with my purchases, I went about my business. I eventually headed over to see the fam and gorge myself with yummy 'Thanks for giving us your friendship before we eventually decimate you race once we don't need you anymore day' food. After which I spent the next couple of hours wanting to sleep, barf and drop a deuce all at the same time. Instead I made yet another creepy self portrait to add to my collection...

Lyle came over the next day and after a brief visit to Home Depot for some supplies, got back to work on his new tall bike:

I don't know about you but looking at that sort of shit melts my fuckin' brain. Pretty bitchin' though right? Def the only time I think anyone's ever done a detailed CAD drawings for a fucking tall bike!

More info on his build here...

Just to give you an idea of what level I'm working at in comparison:

Yep.. Not feeling slightly retarded or anything..

Anyways, just a sneak peak at the original sketch. It's def looking a lot different now...

More to come!


One VERY interesting Colnago frame!


Not quite sure how I almost missed these...

...but this one's pretty way the fuck out there:

Same seller also has a stellar DeRosa:

Not to mention all the other good.. shit.. he's also selling!

This is the type of thing...

...that tastes shockingly fucking disgusting and you pass it off to your friend like: 'Oh good lord this is fucking AWFUL, you've GOT to try it!'

Lyle from Projekt B Came through earlier today to sift through my pile of junk to begin work on his new freak bike...

I was busy working on some photos of stuff I'm selling on the bay. Though the second I caught a whiff of burning paint and steel I dropped what I was doing and set to coming up with something new. I actually surprised myself with quite an awesome design and got to work on it right away. With any luck we'll both move a little further along with things tomorrow...

And no, we're DEF not making any engraved fucking coat hangars...


Beauuuuuutiful 75' Mario Confente Roadie!

The details on and condition of this bike really are worthy of a good spank or two...

London Fixed Gear Forum shirts!

The Philinator was nice enough to bring me back a couple of shirts from London:

You gotta love the rearview mirror 'what a cunt' one!

Thanks a lot Phil you phancy phuck!

Since we're on the topic of shirts check out the difference between my old Metallica ...And Justice for All shirt I've been wearing since I was like 14 and the NOS one I got last year off ebay:

The one thing you def can't gauge from the photos is the near transparancey of the old one. Never mind all the tears..

BTW.. For those of you who aren't aware, ...And Justice for All was THE LAST viable Metallica Album. The ONLY reason for this is because Cliff Burton had written half of the songs before he died. Once he died.. The band officially died.. You would do well to avoid arguing this point with me because I'll totally bust out some ninja throwing stars and whip em' at your face!

So at this point I was just going to hit the publish button but then I thought it might be awesome to photograph some of my other rad old Metal shirts that I've had for fucking ever...

Another Metallica shirt from the same 'Justice' tour:

Metal up Your Ass was actually the bands original title for their debute Album but Elektra killed it for obvious reasons and they went with Kill em' All instead. Thankfully, they still made the shirts:

Megadeth's Rust in Peace tour shirt. That raddest part of which was for the first few years I owned it the back would actually glow from that green light absorbing stuff:

This is the only slayer shirt I could find that didn't have a MASSIVE photo etc on the front. More of a recent purchase too. I used to have a few more but they got lost in some luggage during one summer trip...

I totally used to get mocked out for this one in high school but it never prevented me from wearing it anyways:

Quite possibly my favorite one is this Misfits shirt my old buddy Jon gave me a while back because it was too big for him at the time. I totally cut the sleeves off and did a lot of shredding and partying in this one. Hence all the holes...

Well, now that I've gotten that out of my system I promise I'll get back on topic shortly. I've got some 'junk' I'm going to post up on the bay soon me thinks...

OT: Stories from when I used to work at Rolling Stone Magazine..

Some of you may or may not know that up until about a year ago I worked for Rolling Stone Magazine as their assistant production manager FOR TWELVE FUCKING YEARS. I know.. Don't ask.. In any case.. Just to change it up a bit I've decided to tell a few stories from the good ol' dayz..

Story # 2 - Hippies, Drugs and Oatmeal Raisin cookies...

Story # 3 - The Reverend Al Sharpton...

Having worked there since I was nine-fucking-teen I'd seen and experienced a lot of funny ass shit. These are just a few of the stories that stick out amongst the myriad of others. I hope you enjoy them as much as I'd still enjoy being allowed to get high at my desk...

So I was cruising through some of the old files last night...

Here are a few of my faves:

Indy Fab w S+S Couplers...

Ciocc 77' Track...

Super rare Colnago Mexico 6 arm cranks!

I wonder what the BCD on these are..


Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Anna, you will be sorely missed: LOOKOUT SEATTLE!!

Since I hate/suck/despise saying goodbyes in person, I just wanted to congratulate and wish you the very best with this amazing new chapter in your life. Knowing that you'll be in a place you feel most at home and be with those closest to your heart is.. well.. it's fucking great man! Forget about all this concrete and confining office bullshit!!

For those of you who have no idea who she is, Anna is one of those rare brakeless balls out female fixie riders that would totally keep up with the boys no sweat, blind you when the sun is refracted through her nearly translucent platinum hair, and knooowwwzz howtaboogiedown SUYHN!!!

Now you best keep in touch beeotch!


While I'm not much of a drinker...

...AT ALL, I can get into hanging out at a bar that has sexy track bikes and frames hanging from the walls:

Not to mention the even sexier ladies I'd like to have hangin' off mah jock- HELLOOOOO!

Thanks for the invite fellas! Next time I have a few g's burning a hole in my pocket I'll try my best not to spend it on a 9th (or is it 10th..?) bike and just come hang back in Tokyo in-fucking-stead. My 12 hour layover in Narita on the way to Thailand was cool but I've been DYING to see the real deal...


Two words: Trailer, Racing..!

Dude the check points are REDONK!

The rest of it is pretty rad too. It's kinda like the original Bike Kill/Critical Mass gang..

The ingenuity factor of this set up just destroyed me!!!

Talk about some wicked tinkering to get things just right! Nice Job Morgan!!

This of course is a precursor to some freak bike building action about to go down over the next few weekends...

Some daylight photos of the new Jackson..

I took this beast out for it's first glimpse of daylight on a ride to the Far Rockaways yesterday with Lyle of Projekt B. It was a harrowing experience filled with many perils. Such as mounds of glass and hooked bars- D'ho! Though photos were taken, chairs were thrown and we made it back alive... and there was much rejoicing. Looking forward to the next ride!
