"I like loc-tite on my cleats. The blue stuff. Inhibits corrosion and they never come loose. I also love disagreeing with Doug on public forums. "

"Sorry, just corrected myself. It's $175. It will fit a 35. The rim is black and the hub is silver."

Bailey Gene Newbrey replied to Duppie's discussion A bike shop charging more than MSRP?

Hello Bailey, all is good with me. Enjoying live as usual. You living in Chicago now? Getting ready for Spring and riding season to really start. Have been doing the normal cross-training: Walking, snowshoeing out at Pets, lifting, kickboxing, swimming out in Lake Michigan in the dry suit and riding my Pugsley on the Mcclory bike path when it is nice out. The Bike shop is the only other shop open besides Ski and Sport Chalet in Kenosha. Southport closed a year ago. ABR road racing starts in a few weeks out by the power plant, no more Parkside course. Still go on all night night rides to the North Shore and Chicago. Busy week getting new tires on most of my bikes along with new chains and grips. Am I ever ready for warm weather. Were you working at? You still are wrenching I would think. See ya around, Jim.
