    I'm putting on an alleycat/scavenger hunt Thanksgiving Saturday (October 10th) at 2PM and everyone is welcome to come ride. I've got Bikes On Wheels confirmed to do some prizes and I'm talking to a couple other people as well who might be interested in sponsorship. Any of you guys interested in helping out by running a checkpoint?

    Belt drives on motorcycles suck too .. chain maintenance on a motorcycle isn't a pain in the butt unless you're really lazy.

    I missed the AG part but the doc. ("Pedal Power") was kinda cute. It lost some credibility by claiming that segregated bike lanes are safe and the way to go (ahem while they where saying that, they were also showing footage of such a lane in NY: thing is the cyclist came close to being right-hooked by a truck!, and a cab later on). The interview with the wining motorist that saw 5min added to his commute and also concerned about killing a cyclist because they are reckless was funny too.

    All I said was I could see people wanting it on it, because the chains are heavy and the lube is thick/messy. Only a comparison.

    If I had a motorcycle it would have a chain on it, because that huge chain is way more badass looking.

    Mixed morning for me. Amsterdam signed on to sponsor my event as well, so I can offer free beer and barbecue after the race. On the down side, I did the low speed tip over while clipped in this morning in front of a dozen people or so. I think I couldn't decide between clipping out or pushing down on the pedal to try and stabilize myself, so I did neither and just hit pavement.

    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    Ergo grips, while lacking any coolness, are super comfy.

    Perhaps you are due to lose a few pounds then? Fat guys bust bikes.

    Oh JIT....you are so predictable. Go back under your rock.

    +1. I put on a set for Crank the Shield and loved them. Even after 75km of the gnarliest mtn biking I never got sore or numb hands.

    I've thought about trying out the ergo grips but I can't bring myself to give up my ourys!

    A little bird told me someone has been going into the Don with a bobcat and turning everything into level doubletrack... Does anyone know if this is true?

    I'm not sure about double track, but I will say I don't love what's happened to the don over the last two months. Some of the fun and a little technical stuff has given way to tonnes of gravel.

    I have used nothing but Ourys for years. Try the Ergon's...you will not be disappointed.

    And the Don rumours are true....at least on the Ridge...lets just hope they don't mess with P.A./Sky Pilot/etc.

    I ordered up yer rim and hub for the SS wheel. Maybe stop by the Bike Joint when you have a chance and pay the good gentlemen there.
