All the Surly stuff MSRPs at ~$500. Salsa is about the same.

New Salsa Casserolls on eBay at $335. Canti brakes will allow any tire up to ~38mm.

Qbike searches most of the popular internet sites.

New carbon on eBay.

The rider, by the way is known as "Fast" Freddy Markham - some of y'all may recognize that name since he was an Olympic team member (76-80) and holds or has held several records in the streamlined HPV category. He's pretty active on one of the recumbent forums that I visit, BROL.

So, due to an odd circumstance (my daughter got trapped IN her bike ) I need to replace the rear brake. The pads and the whatever it is called (single pivot side pull maybe ) need replacing. Where do I get the parts though? This is a kids WalMart bike, so I do not need high end components that the LBS sells, just something that will work and get her to a stop.

Go to your LBS that orders from J&B. They have lots of 'kids bike' level stuff.

Wally world *may* have some extra stuff too, but you'd have to go check.

If there's a bike co-op in your area, check there. They take in donated bikes and usually have tons of take-off parts.

the cheapest grade shimano brakes should be just fine, find the local store thats got BMX and stuff, they'd be more likely to have old fashion sidepull, as the roadies are all dual pivot now, and the mountain folks are mostly cantilever, V brake and disc.

Maggie is a 80 lb lab so when she goes right, so does the bike
I love dogs but can't stand mountain biking with them or riding with others who bring thier dogs.

It's finally quieted down here, though I'm sure there's trail damage from the storms we've had. Got some riding in yesterday evening, but had to stay on the pavement. I'm hoping the trails will have dried out by this weekend.

yep been too long. Might need to ride the trails at croom sometime this holiday weekend. Still 20+mph winds gusting so road biking not likely.

Surprising well! Sucker just rolls. It'll climb most anything. I've already cleared some rocky hilly sections on the first try that had always eluded me on my other bikes.
