I'm now hoarding 4 total Token headsets, kinda bummed they ran out of black.
Also been hoarding the Miche Primato 1" needle headsets since I heard mention that there are no plans to continue producing them.

Also, it looks like they boosted the price of the Tokens back up to 23 canadian doll hairs. I snagged mine last week for $13

I shouldn't have provided a link. They probably saw we were nerding out over them and decided to jack up the prices on the remaining few.

"... the bike that started the resurgence of handbuilt steel bikes in the United States, which then spread around the world."

Tell that to the countless framebuilders in the UK who have been making steel bikes longer than Rivendell and Bridgestone combined.

It doesn't have to be the UK. How about the fact that Trek made high end steel road bikes until like 2007. Fucking TREK. And what on earth is Jan doing with a 62cm frame?

I inquired about this during coffee outside this morning and learned a little bit about his other nerd hobbies including model cars and trains.
Didn't realize that Riv used to belong to his wife.

55cm grando, with the french bend fork

Probably will end up having some stupid-high reserve but it's got some decent parts and a dyno.

I'd be ok trading $30 of weed or booze for a chairpole, but I can't bring myself to trade that much cash for one, for this particular bike.

If anyone wants just a set of the shifters, I have one. Got them from Recycled (they are used) for 75 and my project has fallen through. I guess I could take them back but it’s been like 4 weeks.

Bars down, levers up, that's the way tarck likes to 'sup...
