    Frame and fork including sandblasting and prep about $100 to $150 around here if you bring in
    clean parts. A couple of shops have a minimum charge of $50 so doing just a fork or just a rack
    doesn't pa...

    I use the chemical warm packs too and like them, but one thing to note is that they need oxygen

    I agree, there's millions of dollars on the line and all you have to do is take some EPO? I can
    see a lot of riders taking that chance for that kind of money. I've heard people are taking it
    to win Am...

    Just when you thought it was over, the morning news reports new allegations that Lance or his
    people, attempted to bribe regulators and intimidate witnesses against him.

    Thanks for the support and good luck to both of you as well.I'm 5' 11" so I may not meet the
    cut for being an official clyde once I drop below 200 but I will always think of myself as a

  • Posted in thread: How narrow of a tire can I safely use? on 01-07-2013 at 02:33 AM
    Look on the rim lable. Most manufacturers list the inside width of the rim along with the
    actual diameter in mm. Check with the manufacturer or your LBS but in most cases you can
    install a tire that i...
