But then you will have to play regularly to keep us supplied!
Haha, cool! Don't want to step on any toes. I'll see what I can come up with.

The best thing about new decals would be that they'd make it even cooler to have the old ones.

Careful I wear size 12's... but kidding aside go for it, I won't be offended in the slightest and likely won't be printing a batch this time, I believe I'm out of vinyl and prefer spending my time on my newest acquisition rather than fighting my printer..

Edit: Shameless Sekai plug (newest bike) And it qualifies for this thread as the stem did come out of the BoC

Very nice, thanks for including a pic with an item form the BOC. Though I don't think anyone minds pics. At least the Crapmaster does not mind. Looks like we may compete on frame size, or maybe it is deceptive. 50-52cm?

What came first, the hammer or the nail?

54 actually, my sweet spot is the ever elusive 55 though and 56's are just a touch too big.

As for the hammer.. I think the hammer came first, as that one is nailed down... (was stolen once before, likely for the redwood handle)
