First Look: VP, Biknd, KS - Taipei Show 2014
Pffft....my Beryllium valve caps cost $900. I laugh at these cheap pedals. I think the fact that these pedals have created so much discussion, and that they are from a brand that not too many people have heard of (despite them making a mega-ton load of pedals), says 'mission accomplished' to me. They don't need to sell a single set.

THAT Was a Bike: 1991 GT Xizang LE
Maurice LaVoie welded them in Whistler (90% sure). I only know such an obscure fact due to hanging around at the dirt jumps in Whistler in 2007 and there was an older dude there with a nice old Ti bike which I made a positive comment about. He mentioned that he made it himself and also made GTs early frames. A forum thread that I came upon a few years later added the name to the face. He welded the early ones anyway.

California Dreaming: DVO Test Sessions
I'm sure this will be buried in a sea of ranting, but I'm interested to know why the 'enduro' fork will be a standard design and with a cart rather than open bath? Does it just boil down to weight (having to ride an Enduro bike up hill OMG!)? I love the look of the old SC Shivers and RAC forks and it'd be rad to see a new generation of SC inverted forks.

Bontrager Rhythm Pro TLR Wheelset - Review
^You could just buy for sets of similar quality wheels factory direct for the same price. Plus the advantage that you won't have to spend 3 months trying to source straight pull spokes.

Extremely distinctive single speed road bike for sale, or trade! I don't think I've ever managed to take this out without the bike getting compliments. Everti titanium road frame - 48". I'm 6" tall and the bike fits fine the way I have built it, but you could easily be shorter and fit as if it had drops, the bike would technically be too small for me. The frame has a 22" effective top tube length for reference. Carbon fork - no idea on brand but was new when I got it. Dura Ace brakes (previous generation?). Vintage anodized Dia Compe SS5 brake levers Velocity Aerohead rims laced to Dura Ace 7900 rear hub and old school Deore XT front hub. DT spokes and alloy nipples. Radially laced front and 3x / radial rear. Bontrager folding tires. Raceface Cadence crankset and BB. Token sealed bearing pedals. Sram PC1 chain - chain tensioner as I figured out the magic ratio to get the chain length spot on. Raceface SixC carbon bar. Wide! Show your hipster friends what a real handlebar looks like ;-) Truvativ Team stem FSA sealed integrated headset and carbon spacer Raceface Evolve XC seatpost SDG saddle. Titanium bottle cage bolts! I've not weighed it lately but I think it's between 16 and 17 pounds. Mechanic built / owned. Almost everything is either 'as new' or in great condition. The handlebar is a bit scuffed and the tires have seen some use. Being a Bikeshop workshop manager, my bikes just get looked at rather than ridden ;-) I'm looking for a 56"(ish) steel or Ti road bike from anywhere from late 80's to early 00's. I've got no firm criteria. If I like it, I like it. So if you have something and want to do some sort of trade, let me know. Otherwise cash is king.
