Looks like pintched chainstays to me.. not the ideal way to create rear tire clearance.. I do like the KGB dropouts though.

Is there a cantilever brake cable stop at the left seatstay?

Too bad you can't sprint or climb, you fucking flamer.

Too bad you live on Gay St.

Good luck building it up in your fantastic garage.

Hey everybody, Shuffler lives on Gay St.

Where's your french bulldog?

How much do you want for your RVT?

I saw it in the rental store, does that count? was tempted to pick it up, probably will eventually, just wasn't in the mood for a cycling movie this week.

Hi Queenie :wave ,
Since I'm fat I don't like them either. Where do you get non-elastic bottom jerseys?

PS: If you arrange some ADV jerseys for us I'm totally in. :deal

What do you do with the bottom on non-elastic jerseys? Tuck 'em into your bike shorts? Let it flap and ride up in the wind, revealing your bikeshortshunchedover induced plumbers crack?

I'm curious about this too/? The place I'm looking at has essentially 2 choices in fit = pro & club fits. The club fit says it fits non pro cyclists so I'm going with that.

I assume they have some form of elastic around the bottom because I've never seen a bicycle specific jersey that doesn't....

How would it not flap around in the wind, or chafe (hang down) at your thighs? I'm hoping they allow us to choose different "cuts" though, and like I said, let me get the design/prices/etc together first, then I'll post a new thread to get a list of buyers together. It looks like they may run into the 100 dollar range, but they look like a good quality jersey.

Here's their sizing charts-

Like I said, CLUB FIT looks to make the most sense.

Hiya Doc :wave

I wear this one, I have two of these...they're incredibly comfortable and they don't ride up. :thumb I not shaped the same as you fellas so I can't say if it would ride up on you. :dunno

With the 26t, I'm running a 34t inner. Works better than the 39t. :nod IF yer planning on running D/A, the smallest rings yer gonna get are 48t outers and 38t inners.

XTR cranks (M95X series) have an adaptor that you can run 110mm BCD rings, or you can get a compact crank from someone. Ritchey is still makin one that works with Octalink. Others are out for ISIS.

I'm workin this weekend... What's happening? :ear

Great story. I remember when he broke all the records in that crazy position.

How did his bike not break?
