Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Maybe my head is in the sand but I've used Assos since 2001 and have been able to buy the same jersey for at least a couple of years. Sold out in a day brings new meaning to the word "limited" IMO. It's not really a big deal to me though because I don't like the style. To each his own and I do respect that it isn't the same thing everyone else is wearing. Never knew of these guys nor of Heavy Pedal until I came to this forum.

Saw this on their essentials line. I had a good chunk of change and all my ID and car key fall out of a jersey pocket once and really appreciate a zippered pocket like this.

Hmm, tempting but I really don't need them. Still tempting though, haha.

Hmm, mine doesn't seem to have the pocket, that must be just for their "essential" collection, unless it's a new feature. Guess I'll find out shortly.

Yeah, I think they mostly do the limited stuff to drum up attention for their normal gear, however, it seems more and more people are doing one off kits in limited runs. I've actually started following wtfkits on instagram just so I stay on top of all the random ones. It can be hard to keep up.

Decided against kit. The funds are more necessary for the other project.

Got to spend some time in a pre-pipe welding course at another school. Practicing common techniques on beveles plates out of position. Sucks to be the new guy to a class.

Does this mean, soon we will be calling you a boilermaker?

Are you using a figure 8 technique on that bead on the right?

Today I n+1 for a total cost of zero $$$. Photos of this new project will be posted next Wednesday when I fire up my PC. Until then, I'll leave it up to your imagination what it is. The only thing I'll say for now is that it is a bicycle and that it is rideable.

Can't say yet! Boilermaker, pipe fitter or welder. I applied to a trainee spot with Chevron which will cover all three skills.
It's a 3/8" plate with an open root V groove. e6010 root pass and e7018 fill and weave cap.

Never tried a e6010 but I have burned a lot of e6011s which is very similar (but will work on an AC only buzzbox). Lots of penetration very little slag.

Yeah, they're nice for home projects. My dad has a Lincoln tombstone and packs of 6011 and 6013

For those that have never seen one, it is shaped like a tombstone.

After spending way too much time exploring pedal options for the new whip, I ended up buying another pair of GR-9's; today I spent my lunch break greasing the bearings. True to form, they arrived a little tight and undergreased. (inb4 twss)
