    Oh Canada ...

    before watching Canada defeat the USA men's hockey team in o/t, i got in a couple of hours and discovered two things.

    thing one: i like having fenders on my bike in the slop (sks raceblades)

    thing two: i revisited my no-ipod rule. switched from the isolating sennheiser buds to the oem buds, and felt better able to handle traffic sounds.

    now, time for some beer
    By the time you're experienced enough to get something germane out of a test ride, you won't need a test ride.

    What are "non-sequiturs"?

    Correct. Go again.

    Nonsensical threads for $400, Alex.

    let the trash talking begin!
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    i guess the hockey makes up for having to live in a bland, albeit polite, part of the world.

    I'll take BC's "blandness" any day.

    25 years ago, I would have agreed with you. Knowing though, that you are a cultured and normally insightful person I find your remark odd, and an indication you need to come back and explore. It isn't your grandfathers Canada.

    Ironically, it was that which lead me to post about the Canadian backcountry. Which is not bland and can be brutally impolite to the unprepared.

    Just a different viewpoint.
