    I'm *at* work.. what more can you expect?

    ps. "Effective area: Approximately 3 m". boo! That's more along the lines of what I'd expect for that price though. As much as it would be nice to have a phone free bubble of like 25m around me at all times.

    Yeah, I'm not totally sure if it will be helpful on that particular link because I haven't tried watching it, but it's helped me in other situations when a Quicktime file isn't available. Plus it's free/opensource which makes me more apt to install it.

    had breakfast for lunch today at eat-me (diner on richmond/portland). a tasty greasy(but not too greasy) all-day breakfast for 5 bucks. 3 eggs, sausage or bacon, toast, damn good home fries, toast, coffee. good burritos and burgers there as well. anyways, one of the wait-staff, tristan, had a nice pink miele conversion locked up outside.
    hey tristan: it's me (eugene). the alleycat info is in this thread, as well as the alleycat/race info thread within the ss/fix forum.

    I just won the auction for this bike for my girlfriend's birthday in May. I plan on swapping over some off the parts onto my bikes and getting the frame powdercoated pink (her wish, not mine! Although it will look freaking sweet). I think it was agood deal but I was pushed right up to my spending limit. Oh well, she wanted to go dutch on it anyways so no big deal! It will sure be fun to ride a frame that small back to my house!

    As far as sizing goes, as long as I jack up the seatpost a little and put on a longer stem it should fit her well. I'll be sure to post some pics later once I have it rebuilt and she is riding on it

    I live in Toronto and I'm currently building up a fixie with an old road frame. Anybody know of any shops in Toronto that I can get a cheap track frame from?

    yeah, Cavern Cycles (179 Queen St. E) always has a few nice cheap frames on hand. Plus Keith, the proprietor is a poster on this board and is an all around congenial guy. If you wanted a cheap(er) new fixed gear road frame instead of a true track frame you could get an urbanite frame from Urbane Cyclist at Queen and John.

    Lies!!

    I've significantly reduced my posting to the Toronto Fixed thread only. I used to read/post on every single new thread that popped up since my last visit.

    <-- forum junkie

    Also i'm going to sell my profile aerobars (getting the new s-bend T2+ ones). Pm if interested.

    nice shiznaz. that looks like an urbanite frame to me. but for that price you got a deal with the CK headset included.

    After getting the bike back home I can safely say it was a most excellent deal. Its pretty much in perfect like-new condition save a few scratches which don't matter since its getting powdercoated. The rear wheel is unfortunately only threaded for freewheel so I may have to get it relaced some time if she decides to try out fixed gear. Other than that its very solid and the front end is super-stiff. The seatpost is also really long, so that combined with a longer stem I have and the fit is perfect. I plan on putting the king headset on my spicer and switching the selcof one to the urbanite because I'm selfish like that.

    I think I'm going to bail on whatever festivities I had suggested for tomorrow.. you know, for the two of you that expressed interest.

    I suddenly came to my senses and realized that I don't have to wade through hundreds of people at a pub for a $6 beer. I can just drink the ones sitting in my fridge and play video games.

    Heh - My buddy Euge booked out the back room at Cadillac for his b-day party on friday, so if you feel like hunting down a pint sans-lines, feel free to drop by and sample the cold wobbly pops.
