    I have a Sugino Grand Mighty that has a thud of death in the BB. Any advice on a good BB that is not the $175 Sugino 75 SUPERLAP. This love affair has become been too expensive as the bike I built when I was flush...is now nearly out of my league to maintain. Haters only hate things they cant have, and people they cant be.

    How do you have trouble affording a $175 superfap bb on your dentist salary?DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Well, it's good to see you're all still a rotten bunch of cunts. When I built this in 2006 the Boston fixed forums were also a bunch of little bitches...albeit, slightly more knowledgeable. Never change, Boston! Anyway, I guess I'm going for this:

    Protype 109mm ISO sealed-cartridge bottom bracket
    $35.00 (at Ben's & Retro-gression)

    While the standard loose-ball Sugino 75 BB is certainly baller, not everyone wants to mess with cleaning and repacking their bearings from time to time and would rather be out riding their bike.
    Enter the Protype - featuring silky-smooth sealed-cartridge bearings, lightweight alloy cups/sleeve and a cro-mo spindle.

    • 109mm ISO square-taper spindle (perfect for Sugino 75)
    • 68mm English-threaded (1.370" x 24tpi)
    • crank arm bolts includedHaters only hate things they cant have, and people they cant be.

    ^ nope some off us are still the same bunch of cunts, just older and more grouchyTake-off everything but your rainboots

    not to be all helpful or whatnot...but i've got the protype from ben's, it's done me quite well for the while i've had it, no complaints.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    ...and the moment Chris Hoy called it "glorious", every Schwinn "Exit Courier" riding one of you twats ate a huge bag of dicks. Calm ur butthurt just because the Chris King headset costs more than ur mother, scumfucks. It cost me less than a couple months worth of that skag ur skank girlfriend puts in her nautical-star adorned arm, cock death. There was a forum in 2006 or 2007, but it was not BostonFixed.us....I think. It's been a long time since I was in Boston, and LFGSS is a far more helpful bunch of cunts.Haters only hate things they cant have, and people they cant be.

    Pretty sure GC is corect that bostonfixed.com didn't exist yet, we were still a sub forum of bike forums. I was gonna tell you to just get a miche bb. But get fucked and fix your saddle angleTake-off everything but your rainboots

    Well, A FORUM certainly existed in 2007. If it was this one, fucking congrats. All I know is Sassy James and I built it up in 2006, and I prolly come here looking to sell off parts as I replaced up in 2007 (via Scott from New England Institute of Art?). Oh yeah, and to get the details for cats or bike porn events. Don't worry about my saddle, friendo. I only tilted it down for the day because ur little sister swelled my balls with her famous circus trick reverse mount. AND thanks, I'll look at the Miche BB.Haters only hate things they cant have, and people they cant be.

    Oh that explains it your friends with toothless James, one of the biggest fucking retards in Boston. Small dick from what I hear, is that why you like him? Doesn't hurt when he gives your ass some loving?

    As to lfgss being more helpfull, your bike would be torn to shreds in the current projects/readers wives thread. Way worse then anything anyone has said about it here.

    My fucking little sister would destroy you friendo...Take-off everything but your rainboots

    Can you post close-ups of Ronald McDonald's autograph?

    ZING! So clever. Hey everybody! Watch the colors red and yellow make the monkey say "McDonalds". At least you're only the 50th muppet to say that in this country. That's an autograph by Ben Serotta, the man who built the bike. I'll actually give you a close-up, since I'm pretty sure you'll never see one in person.

    The poor bastard who put the frame on CL was a semi-retired Portland velodrome racer who had a baby, and his wife made him sell 8 of 10 bikes to clear a room. Competition yellow and red were not my choice, but a reality if I wanted a rare CPI Custom Serotta track frame for under $1000. A horrendous pothole took my red back wheel in London, and the chrome H+Son gave a nice build on the old high-wall Phil. She's loud, she's a freak, and that tall stem reflects my new appreciation for function over form, but she's perfect. Well...y'all have been a charming "welcome back" committee. Carry on.

    Does anyone else find it funny that rock death actually does have a Serotta, not to mention one that actually looks classy?

    Also, way to make one of the nicest track frames I've seen in a while make me want to vomit.

    Another great example of Bfixed jumping down the throat of a newcomer for breaching some entirely unintuitive bit of mostly historical decorum. And so we first kick him in his nuts for not finding the right (nonexistent) mechanics thread, and then we criticize his bike. And now he'll never come back. Mission accomplished, Bostonfixed.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)
