    Here's another one that seems to be getting a fair bit of current play on FM4 Vienna even though it's quite old ( http://fm4.orf.at )

    Sure! But only if you throw in the red bike!

    CPH is very nice. England is nice too but it's not Scandinavia ... much more class struggle over here. Have you moved yet ... was in Malmö a few weeks back. Also, have you watched The Bridge to work on your Swedish and Danish? It's a great show (and subtitled at the BBC rebroadcasts it!) and it's hilarious because the Swedes can't understand Danish

    Not yet. I still don't have my work permit, but my employer is still expecting I'll start the first week of February. It's a bit scary, because I still have many things to do here first, and I can't really do them until I know I can move legally to Sweden. I've been getting rid of things, but I can't sell my car or pay my landlord thousands of dollars to break my lease until I have my papers in hand. You can imagine doing all of those things, and then not getting the permit, only to find myself homeless.

    I've watched some of the Bridge... The Mexican-American version!

    2013/01/20 12,500, a branch ****ed up rear derailleur hanger and the derailleur itself. Guess around 30 euros for a replacement, will see how many days. If I get the hanger tomorrow and manage to fix the bent RD, then it could be just around 7 euros, otherwise - 5 workdays plus 30 euros.

    we're having 100mph crosswinds, which means that the deep-V rims aren't the best.

    other than that, it's quite nice ... i assume that the coldest part of the season is over ... hardly had any freezing surface to content with as I was away for a month over Xmas.

    honesty, it's quite fun and I really like the concept of SS as I get quite a good workout especially up a hill or with a slight headwind, when I drop out of the spinning zone.

    i would recommend it to anyone.

    my biggest complaint is that i had to drive several days this year already to take care of business (meet/drop off people at airport) or work at the hospital for 3 days ... i don't like the bike:car utilisation ratio that i have

    So do you have a projection of when you might get near their ratios yet?
