Gonna toss this out there ... anyone got the following:

1) Quill-stem, ~100mm variety (or however they measure quill-stems)?
2) 27" rear wheel, mine got stepped on from the side and a truing got it so-so alright ... but if anyone's got a old one they're not using / want to get rid of...
3) A lock I could borrow until Kryptonite sends me a replacement?

Willing to trade small change or a few cans of sparks or other assorted alcomahol...

All the gear deprived:

Cross lever, GOT one extra -
Krypto lock, have NYC not being used - very barrowable - NOT DELIVERABLE!
100mm quill, but comes with 37 cm drop bar, 105 levers and professionally wrapped.

in return for items 1 and 3, donations towards a 40 or 42 cm Nitto road drop or burritos are welcomed. (btw: going dry for a few months)

Had some wind and fun at the smithsonian kite festival today. Caught Rincewind out there slumming too.
See you all in the morning over at hains pt. I'll be very well geared.

Hains was 50% cool but pleasant, 50% windy as a$$. we put in some miles. cheese was had by all. good to see baldylocks, as well as welcome to Karen (not sure what your BF name is? and you disappeared!). poop, spud, and christoph + laura on the tandem also made appearances. where were YOU, regular pirates??? hains has been a skeleton crew recently. cutters rally in the upcoming pirate pillaging season!

PS. Susan-- HA! Dr Octagon!!! Haven't listened to since school...I must have sold dr octagonycologist as I can't find it in my cds. Blue flowers...moosebumps...baboon acne. Love it! and Black Elvis.

Krypto lock is fine enough ... unfortunately, can't use quill & 105 levers ... downtube shifters on my bike now ... and I don't want to ruin a professionally wrapped bar PNC, I pick up the lock tomorrow night maybe?

Yarr and salutations to awwwllllll.

I work at the Takoma farmers market 10-2 every single sunday. means I am out for the haines ride. However, I sell very delicious CHEESE. Get it, Get it? Cheese!!!!!!

How about a ride up into the wilderness of upper northeast DC instead.
Get yummy, healthy food, check out the brand new bike shop, the thrift shops and then lunch beneath the cannon in Fort Stevens. Oh, one of the shops is going out of business so they are cuttin prices..lots.

-Ben

beach drive to silver spring, then across to takoma...more details when I get a map.

BTW, lets make a point to ALL come out for this months critical mass.

We can do a safety check and repairs session beforehand, with free flat fix.

I will draw up an actual plan and will link with others to promote it.

Call friends, shine up your bikes, get your costumes ready, call your cute friends, get your penny farthing out and make a circus out of the biggest regular ride in DC.

Chelsea...

What about those flags?

Additionally, who still needs stuff?
I always have a lot in reserve and chain reaction will be opening in May (grumble).

RCP, I can wrap the bars if you want those cross levers?

Cow. More power to you.
It was interesting but good.

What is happening with shirts?

I am teaching a regular class thursday night at 630 at citybikes on tire repair and whatever else.
If you need to know more about your bike, come on by.

Red, found a bag of CR stuff in my closet, should I bring it over to you?

Was wondering this Sunday as we were rounding Hains Pt if it would be of interest to ride to different places from Hains once in a while (LBK your ride, your call just a suggestion but cheese, pies and points around the compass do become tempting.

BTW, lets go a little easy with talkin smack about peoples affordable parts. When we start talking about how much we spent or what new bling we got it starts sounding like the rest of bike forums and i get confused hitting the back arrow.

pcow, sounds cool, if it is light enough.
If not I can pick up some time.

Ooooh, I know what you mean. Yeah!!!! *****in!!!

Polyester pirates!!!


I have tools a stand and still have some park manuals left over from my students, would anyone like to learn more skills, get some repairs done, etc? I would be happy to teach for free and then we could do some fundraising classes later in the year.

Does anyone have ideas for an all ages venue?

Chief ikes has offered to host a class on a weekday night.

On another note,

I made some nickers out of dickies and reflecto tape.
They work great, anyone want to have some made, help me make some? Have a sewing machine?
Get patches made?

Etc?

Hey poopncow, Sunday you were talking about some ride coming up in NY, but I'm not that bright so I don't remember much about it. If you have any details you can give me that'd be cool, thanks.

There already is a ride planned for this Sunday. Hills of YARRlington.

My personal preference is getting miles in at Hains on Sunday. It's pretty much my dedicated day for getting in high mileage during daylight each week. Other people are free to do/plan whatever. I don't need to make a call here.

homeward bound?

anyone near sherwood and want to ride home? (north).
I am killing time for the next ten to fifty minutes while I wait for a response.

four nine one four seven 0 seven

Hey, if most folks (who work in the OD and live north) finish at around the same time and many are going the same way, why not create an informal rally point and time in case company is worth a little waitng or a little lateral travel?

who is the screen printer?
