    The Color Purple

    anyone have a spare purple 1 1/8" Chris King headset clogging up their parts bin? Seen one at a LBS?

    The kind folks at Chris King wished me good luck and good day.

    Searching for "Chris King purple" on ebay got me a sweet purple Chris Weber basketball jersey from the Sacto Kings. I bought one just cuz it was close enough.

    Don't get me started on the rare purple Surly hubs either.....

    damn, too late.

    HW...in my garage I have an old Aheadset headset. All parts are there, hainging from a nail on the wall...If you'd like, I can go to ACE Hardware, buy some purple spray paint, and spend all morning making you a purple headset...wait, I think I may have some old acrylic paints left over from my college days. I could stencil in pretty flowers and unicorns on it for you as well.

    The Hulk wore purple pants.

    Grimace is Purple

    Purple might be the new Red.

    Guys who drive purple cars...are insecure...in their pants.

    deep purple thoughts

    noslogan: I always wanted to laugh at your boots but I was afraid you'd lift your kilt in my general direction. That would be unfortunate.

    Cruz: thanks for the link!

    strong1: we've chatted about those before, so thanks again. Still need 29" though. I'd like to have the hubs just to have 'em.

    Ernesto: Um thanks for the painted headset offer, but I'll pass for now. Speaking of purple, I was on the set the night this photo was taken. I was helping out my pa and was given strict orders by Prince's "people" to always be busy and never stop and stare at him. So I was always fumbling with something to keep his frail little ego intact. Ah, rock stars...

    I never meant 2 cause u any pain,

    Hey Hollywood....by the way, great meeting you today. You can always consider a Hope purple headset. Though I think there are patent reasons for them not being available in the US you can get them through on-line EU retailers such as chainreactioncycles i am pretty sure. Hope makes sweet stuff....and while you are at it, since it looked like you were digging the hope brakes today, see if you can get the Hope brakes with purple reservoir caps, bore caps, and levers....oh mama that would make Prince proud!
