How H+Son Makes their rims

super awesome watch.  newfound respect for their rims

BOBCFL: 1980's Bottecchia Campione del Mondo

and now for something really sweet
every time i see a bottecchia i think of my main man b-det and his poor bottecchia frame...  he rattle canned it, ground off the cable guides, and then beat the shit outta it.  good memories from those days :)

anyway, this bike looks GREAT GREAT GREAT.  digging the red tape, black stem, white frame, red tyres combo (so much i might cop that for a mountain bike build)

and fair price, especially for LA.

mnm mm, do want

BOBCFL: Raleigh Competition GS

and now to prove my point about how that last post was smoking crack.  here's a raleigh comp gs listed for $50 more than that updated POS:

dripping with nuevo record, a hidden bolt dura ace stem, new wheels

awesome buy for whoever picks this sweet british babe up!
