    Thompson Classic Bicycle Components - grips and seats

    yep, still selling. Search eBay seller ijt64 if interested, or message me here. clamdigger - I had another customer tell me their grips were loose. It's not a common complaint (only two in ten years), but it makes me wonder how often it happens. I measured a dozen bars in my parts...

    What have you been riding lately?

    took the Surly Wednesday to my first snow ride this past Saturday - a race actually. The Springside Slammer in Pittsfield, MA. Holy heck it was tough. I've been racing since the 80s and this one goes down as one of the tougher ones. FWIW, other than cyclocross, I'm predominantly a roadie.
