Yeah uprinting.com has some great rates for color paper printing. I do alot of business with them for some of my graphic design clients...

I did some Zombie designs for my site the other day for shirts and am going to get a few printed through Cafe Press but they are kind of expensive starting around $25 each...

Paul said he wants to make some for here with the design I did but he has been busy and not got a chance to yet... I may make up a couple for me just for riding though LOL...

Awesome Skarrd. Please post links to a build thread or lots of pics here? I am getting one when this project is done, (read payed for, lol) http://motorbicycling.com/f28/floati...art-27577.html Would really enjoy seeing your work before I get mine.

Car was still in shop so rode bike to work, then to shop. Check engine light, no matter what I did would not go off to pass emissions. $333 and an O2 sensor later light is still on and I learn my car is older then needs to be hooked to the testing computer and will just get a thing stuck up it's tail pipe. Strange Symmetry there, eh? double and depressing snicker.

Ridding to work, seat feels broken. Get there so cold fingers hurt. Really dunno how you northern folks do it all winter. Get in and grab a cup of coffee and a smoke. Look under the seat and the spring is gone! No kidding, the whole thing is just not there. Cracked me up. Really, how the **** can the spring get gone? My favorite saddle too. Uber cheap but unbelievably comfortable. It was cushy for the tushy. Now, not so much. Well, half any way.

But man motorized bicycle commuting is great! Nice way to clear your head for the day and to end it.

yeah i was e-mailing sbp about the chainrings since i have a 24" wheel, rather than a 26" they were happy to substitute different chainrings for me. going with a 44-48 setup rather than the 36-44

Nothing new. Still stripping down Higgins parts, often to bare metal if need be. Still painting Red, Red, Red. It'll really make the white tires stand out.
