    If you don't want to destroy the lock and can't find anyone with lockpicking skills, there's a locksmith in the prudential center that might be able to help you.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    *Edited*

    May I borrow your time and tools?
    I had to buy new frame and fork from being hit by a car last week. I do not have all the tools I need...
    I need to change a Sugino Messenger Bottom Bracket and the crown race on my fork. I do not have the tools to do this.
    I really need to get this done soon as my bike is sitting in my basement frowning from non-use. (If my bike is frowning, then I am frowning.)
    For your time and tools, I will cook you a glorious meal and I'll will throw a bottle of my family blue ribbon cabernet. (It really is the best cabernet you'll ever have, and has more alcohol per volume than anything you get a store.)

    Please help.
    digits in my info if you wanna call.

    I've got a Shimano chainring bolt tool. No housing cutters though.It's not francois' fault that you weren't looking hard enough.

    I think I still have some ceramic tile nippers that worked for the brake cables on my mtb.

    Edit: I cannot find them in a brief scan of my workshop. the maintanance people may have borrowed them.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Im assuming nvm means "never mind" but in case you need one holla at my personal e-mail quickly (i leave town in a few hours) or ask someone to show you how to "roto-fix" it.

    Don't roto fix it until someone qualified shows you how. theoretical knowledge of the process will not prevent you from bending your chain ring in san francisco on vacation...or so I have "heard""You're dancing TOO SMALL; dominant males dance like THIS!" -(drunk) Nate, to me on the art of seduction and the role of dancing therein (while on a dancefloor)

    ^You're thinking chain whip for removing cogs and not chain tool for breaking chains. I needed the latter, but thanks anyway. I have a Park CT-5 which doesn't work on 1/8 in links with thicker sidewalls.

    Yeah, the roto-fix technique sounds simple enough, but I could see where things could go awry.It's not francois' fault that you weren't looking hard enough.

    you did on the first page

    and you were really mean about it!



    edit: note - i don't need to borrow a feeling. i already has a feeling

    also, keep the two bike collective shops (there are two, both in basements of houses; one in lower allston and the other in brighton) in mind if you guys need tools to use fo' free and stuffMust be awful, being so fluffy.
