Just another ebayliciuous dump for ya today..

Here's what's been catching my eye lately:

WANT! As if that wasn't good enough there was ANOTHER ONE that ended last week that was a much better fit for me:


A bevy of 3Rensho roadies?!:


..IS GOING ON?! I MIGHT have seen a few rennie roadies on the bay like EVER and out of the blue here's three at the same bloody time- so weird! That last one would fit me pretty nice too..

BLACK annoed DA cranks?!


Lovely NOS Atala with some nice paint for the ladies:

On the flip side of that is this decidedly HORRIBLE paint job on this classic Cannondale 90's Track frame:

On the flip-flip side of that is this AWESOME paint job once again for the ladies on this Berbet B. Sweetman:

So. fucking. RAD! More images here..

Pretty Pogliaghi from the one and only Fyxomatosis:

Fuuuuuuuucking REDONK GT Style 83' Colnago Equilateral Master Roadie:


Anyways, I think that's about all I can muster for now. I know for a fact that there's a bunch more I wanted to post but I gotta get back to the grind unfortunately..

p.s. - check out which song just came up on shuffle:

My 3Rensho Tarck frame up for grabs!

As much as it pains me to do so, I've got to let go of one of my favorite steeds:

56cm CTC TT, 54.5 CTC ST..

$1200 takes it F/F and 7710 DA headset. Shipping NOT included!

It's in AWESOME shape with NO DENTS and only minor scratches here and there. Long wheelbase too which is great for cruising in the streets. I can include some Nitto bars, DA seatpost, Yellow Turbo saddle and yellow tufo tubulars and yellow toshi straps and buttons for a bit extra..

Easily one of the nicest one's I EVER seen and prime example of Yoshi Konno's work:

It's got this super subtle two tone paint job that just SLAYS you in the sunlight. You can kinda see it if you look hard in the photos. SO. FRAKING. AWEZOME!!!

I really fucking hate to part with it but it just doesn't get ridden much and I'm trying to stick with frames that are the best fit for me as possible. This is the last one I have that's a bit off..

That and I picked up another one a little while back that's a much better fit for me :-)

I plan on posting it on the bay next week along with a bunch of other stuff. Would MUCH rather it go to a good home and perhaps even to someone local..

Hit me up here if you have any questions:


If you had been hanging out at my shop yesterday.. could've witnessed me running around and screaming like a little girl after I accidentally grabbed a super hot section of rear stay:


That's just the nasty blister on the outside. I managed to burn a good section of my thumbs inner web as well. Fucking. SUCKED. It even made that TSSSSS noise when I first touched it- nnNHYAAAHHAA!! So gnar..

In any case, I feel like no one ever really mentions safety outside of helmets and blinkers. That or it's all about the end product and craftsmanship. The truth is that a good portion of the tools involved in building bicycle frames etc can and will maim you every chance you give them. I'm just lucky cause the burn wasn't that bad. Mostly cause I didn't have to go switch-stance later on that night, hehe. In any case, it was bound to happen..

So no matter what your experience level happens to be- Make it a point to be mindful of your surroundings and careful as fuck with anything that has fire coming out of it or a really sharp high RPM rotary bit attached to the end. Most importantly: USE YOUR SAFETY GEAR! It certainly won't hurt as much as getting your dumbass burnt or cut the fuck up..

Having said all that, try to retain a little more dignity than myself if something does happen and don't let it discourage you from continuing your work!

SE Lager Track Frameset for $80 NEW?!!

Yeah, I know it's a hunk of shit but if you're looking for a winter beater it doesn't get much cheaper. All you need to do is get one before Sunday, along with something else cheap to break the $100 dollar mark and you can apply the $20 bucks off orders over a $100. Geo here..


or not cause you're a pussy..

No seriously, once you have this all you need is a top section from any old bike with a matching (ish) TT and you're gtg! SO. EASY.. If it makes y'all feel any better I'm putting together a DIY with lots photos etc to help people build their own, on their own. The bike is sure to be a hit as well!

Note to self:

To avoid computer flopping off bed and crashing onto floor resulting in a destroyed magsafe power connector, place it elsewhere before performing the crossface chickenwing suplex on tiny asian girlfriend:

As much of a bummer it was to see my laptop do a little dance on the floor before landing face down, screen hinge fully extended, it certainly wasn't as pathetic a circumstance as the last time I broke it. Luckily the damage was minimal and at this point I'm a whiz at fixing my overly abused machine. I made an order for a new left hand IO board to along with a new 500g 7200rpm hard drive while I was at it. I had storage issues a week something ago and was forced to wipe my old drive when the start up disk was so full it wouldn't start. NO.. It wasn't overflowing with porn.. assholes..

Speaking of which, I guess it's back to VHS for the time being!

Teeny Marinoni for your one and only!

Damn this shit is NICE!

The fact that the seller shot it in the toilet is pretty hilarious! Tho I have to say, while I totally dig tiny bikes like this, I can't image dating a girl small enough to fit it. I mean, I can imagine it being totally fun to toss em' around but I feel like the frailness and complaints would get to me after a while..

In any case, sweet fucken ride man!



..aside from a Peanut Butter wrench, flashlight and pump of course. But yeah, I've had an Alien ever since I first discovered their ultra radness. Put one of these fuckers in your bag and you'll never have to worry about needing anything when and if you break down on the road. Shit, you can almost assemble/disassemble and entire bike with one of these! In any case, I'm super stoked on this new version:

Seen on Urban Velo..



Consider yourselves lucky cause had it been me taking the photos, I would have made it a point to shoot them buck nekkid!
