    Computer programming AHA.



    Weather forecast says 8 on Saturday with rain possible in evening.
    The last time I rode through heavy rain was on my way back from St. Catharines, I was literally soaked through so much I didn't care if I got any more wet. Epic ride - 120km.

    No No. La Hacienda was the place that shunned us. They don't exactly have a floral bouquet going in that dump either.

    Now Dees......Well some of my fondest drunken memories come from there. I know the whole staff as well as them sponsoring our team last season.

    So, what do you say we meet someplace at 12:00 (say, for coffee) and go for a bit of a ride and wind up at Sneaky Dee's? I'm teh suck at coming up with routes though, so if anyone else wants to handle that..? Obviously we can just ride "stream of conscience" as well and just go whereever. Which will probably mean downhill and with the wind.
    i usually just let my legs get wet while wearing some sort of quick-drying pants, full fenders keep the spray back from the front wheel to a minumum. and keep your feet dry.

    Well... I was at bikes on wheels today, but I was the only one in the shop at the time save one of the guys who works there who came out from the back. If thats you then wicked!

    And this cyclops frame will fit me well... its got a nice long seat tube but a shorter top tube. My Spicer has a longer top tube, but it is in fact too long and I have to use a short 80mm stem to make up for it. So the Cyclops with a proper 100-120mm stem will be just the ticket

    Confused. I'm sure if the person had said his user name was shiznaz I would have remembered that for sure. I asked the guy (because he was riding a green fixie with a top bar protector) are you on bike forums? And then chatting followed.

    It would seem that there were more than one BF'er in the store. Creepy, we're everywhere, and we don't even know it. I could have been the guy that came out of the back though. There were only two of us working.

    I have a feeling that this is going to turn into another mess like 32flavours started, trying to figure out who everyone is. Let the destruction begin!

    Is it too much to ask for some sun? I'm digging this 11 degrees business, but really.
    It's early March. Take what you can get.

    I was the guy with the blue fixie who was looking for a 54cm used road frame for my girlfriend and I was told by whomever I was talking to that I should go see George at Parts Unknown to see a bianchi he had.

    Ya, I guess you talked to Pete. They keep me tucked away in the back much of the time.

    sigh, the GT's just not going. its stuck and work and I have no time to ever get it going.

    and the f-ing jamis. zomg ... the seller listed it as $50 dollars.
    So the customs people open up my frame and see that its basically brand new and has some carbon on it so they tag it as $1500.
    so then when it got to my door, UPS wanted to charge me frekking $250 for customs duties.
    so I told the UPS guy to screw himself and send it back to the seller.

    anyways, that should get back here again sometime in the next week or so.
    btw, its FINALLY MARCH BREAK! hurrah.
