Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

I must leave

Sorry folks. After getting the frame, selling my other bike and checking out the cost of parts and what not it was much more economically sound for me to get a 9.2.5 already built. Though I still plan on customizing parts of it I would have been paying an extra 200 dollars just to get the things the 9.2.5 already has.

Don’t hate me :(

Put some money down on the 9.2.5 Redline frame last night and the good folks at Cars Bike Shop in Mounds View are going to assist me. Hope fully I can get his done by months end.

Diving Right In

What’s up gang! Well, after deciding to take my Bianchi Milano off of Craigslist and going for building my own fixie the only thing I need to do now is figure out where to start. I found a 925 Redline frame for 200 bucks at my local bike shop and I think I will start from there. After that though I would like to build most everything else from used parts, maybe except for the hub, think i might get a Surly one. Anybody got any pointers for a guy who wants to do this but is not an expert at bike building? Any websites or books you can point me towards?
