I think Back Alley had some Palmys last time I stopped by. Kinda meh about those after having issues with the barrel lock mechanism not working.
Josh’s rubber coated cheap aluminum lock looked pretty nice though.


#3103

Yeah, I’ve had this one for a year and it has been great. I paid $12 on eBay, but they’re all gone now and the only place I can find them is on Amazon for more than twice that price. I suspect a dedicated searcher could find it for less on Alibaba or the like.


#3104

Defiance down in Tacoma has them for $40-ish IIRC if you wanna pay too much while supporting a local business.


#3105

Pretty sure I’ve seen them at Counterbalance Cycles.


#3106

I was thinking back to ~2008 when I feel like there were a bunch of crappy aluminum locks out there that were like $15. Is it really only $35 name brand stuff anymore? Those ulac ones looked cool until I saw their promotional video. It’s like every stereotype of the worst kind of hipster sweet fixie kid rolled into one.

[edit] Looks like an older/knockoff version of the ulac is on ebay shipping from china for $15.


#3107

It seems to have disappeared

This is the seller I bought mine from a year ago.

Same seller is on Amazon, as well.

Who was going southbound on Westlake on a Day Ruiner at ~744am this morning? I saw you.

The annual WTF alleycat I help put on is happening again July 14th, and we need guys to help us run the stops! Kyle did it last year and begrudgingly had fun :wink:

Honestly, it’d be super rad to have a Tarck stop with some of the Seattle crew. We usually try and have 3-4 people per stop, and we have a pretty good afterparty (with a free beer for volunteers.)

Let me know if you want to help out!


#3112

In.


#3113

Also in. But only if Marley promises that I won’t be forced to have as much fun as I had last year.


#3114

What would that look like? A no-ska rule?


#3115

Dude. In this era of social upheaval and political strife, there are some things that you should just NOT joke about.


#3116

In Seattle July 3-8, staying near Carkeek park. Tarckup?


#3117

Hell yeah. That’s close to me.

I propose Chuck’s on 85th for tarcking up, but open to suggestions.


#3118

I’m into it.


#3119

Also into Chuck’s.


#3120

I totally know Chuck’s, it’s around the corner from my friends’ old house.
