Two lovely MINT/NEW Nagasawas just popped up on ebay!

Each full set up priced at a pretty damn reasonable $3000!

Have you ever wondered what 26 True Temper Curved Aero seat tubes look like?

Well wonder no longer:

Looks awesome don't it?! Well, aside from the fact that something about the photos hurt my eyes..

I heard was selling them off for a measly $6 each so I picked up the rest of what they had in stock along with a bunch of other really great tubing- STOKED!

Thanks Michael!

Oh and here's what my Anvil fork Jig looks like BTW:


God, making a fork with that thing was like a joke it was so easy! It's what I used to make the fork to go with the Hail Satan Porteur I made a few weeks back..

Lastly, I just posted this ultra rare Nitto Adjustable stem on the bay:

As you can see from the background I've got a new work bench going (needs 5000k bulb STAT). It's just one of a few that I've built in the recent weeks to accommodate the workspace more efficiently. I'm happy to say that I'm finally done building and with a little more organizing it'll be all set. It's great having the shop all built up properly, but what I'm really dying to do is spend time working IN it as opposed to on it. Soon tho, very soon..

Rad F+R Gipiemme Discs on this Vintage TT Pinarello!

I doubt my fascination with crazy front and rear disc combos will ever dissipate until I've personally owed a set, hehe. So awesome!

RAD Thrasher vid!

The amount of padless ait time in this vid is REDONK to say the least:

Yamaguchi Kilo Track on the bay!

I've seen this one in person and I can tell you for a fact that it truly is a gem!

Here's a few more photos of it from when I first saw it while attending the Yamaguchi school:

At that $2000 price tag, half the cost new, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal in nearly new condition..

Probably the raddest..

..locked up bike I've ever seen:

Custom Bilenky with Couplers and Campy carbon record?! Dude's lucky I didn't have a lockring tool on me, hehe..

Also rad is this dudes way of letting pissy drivers know not to fuck with him:

I need to move to a state where you can totally get away with shit like that!


bwahahahahahaha- SO AMAZING!!

Garbage find Frejus RESTORED!

A while back my friend Hana found this Frejus IN THE FUCKING GARBAGE:

Full fucking Campy on there too!

She's one of the forum members on the NYC fixed board and when she posted her find, we were all SHSHSHSHSHITTING ourselves at her fortune!

Not sure how, but the bike found it's way into Cicli Devotion's experienced hands but as you can see from the results, it's a DAMN good thing the bike wasn't lost to the ages- fucking gorgeous!

Still waiting to have a similar instance with a 50-60's era Schwinn Paramount..

More photos via his flickr stream..

Watching this video reminds me of..

..why I don't watch modern racing since it is SO. FUCKING. BORING:


I have to say..

..I could really use a STELLAR find like this right about now:

Now that's a lotta NOS campy to stumble upon!

I've got a little way to go on my Anvil invoice for the jig and a bunch of other tools but finding something like that crazy lot of stuff would be bitchin' big help. I'm DYING to get the last of the main tooling in that I need to get started. I did receive the Anvil fork jig a little while ago and it is fucking AWESOME to say the least. Putting together the first fork I built in the shop was like a joke with that thing! Along with that, I also found myself a very, very nice deal on probably the tastiest tid bit I have found thus far tool wise. I'll post some pics of it when I actually have it in the shop..

Speaking of which, I'm in the middle of a MAJOR overhaul right now. Well, no, right now I'm at work putting in the 3rd 10-12 hour day in a row. Which as much as it sucks, knowing how fat and lovely my checks are after I've put in a 60+ hour week is WELL fucking worth it.. 

Speaking of fat and lovely, now that my health insurance has finally kicked in after a year something without, my bodacious bunz are sure to get a fucking work out and a half over the upcoming weeks. Super fucking stoked to get out there again! Also super fucking stoked that I'll soon be able to build any kind of bike I damn well please :-D 

Anyways, while the shop is currently a mess, I'll have it organized and on point again real soon. Just need to set up several work stations and go to town with the spring cleaning action..

Looking forward to this mother fucking summer!
