    Hardwood Floors?

    That's some mighty nice floors to go cleaning bike parts on. Well, I guess you have to keep up the appearance of the Park cleaning station. Wouldn't want that thing to sit on a grungy concrete floor or something like that.

    So, when you gonna buy me and the rest of us dirt haters one of those things?

    Cool.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Oh what, my little old TS-3? I guess it makes wheel building just a teeny tiny bit easier.

    I've got a degreaser (industrial type but not a Park) around here somewhere. Problem is when the lid is closed it makes a convienient place to stack stuff, and more stuff, and more stuff............ I think it would take me 30 min to get at it. I need to stop being such a pack rat

    Dig through the solvent bucket some time and I'll bet you find some chainrings you left to soak 3 months ago....

    just make sure you buy a good solvent, anything that says "bio-degradable/enviromentaly safe won't work too well, unless you buy finish line citrus clean(the stuff works wonders but in makes your hands tingle, turn red, It also remove paint easily if you use it full strenght and let in sit on somthing), if you buy the citrus clean you would have to dillute it, but I know there are some solvent cleaner specific solvent out there that workd wonder.

    I'd also recommed wearing nitril gloves when you use that baby, they will keep your hands from drying and craking (don't use latex most good solvents will eat it).

    I'm diggin the ts-3 stand in the back ground, wish i had 1000$ laying around for a truing stand.
