    Really? Damn... That was the primary reason I wanted to get new dual pivots, for increased stopping power. The v-brakes on my mtb don't really compare to my road brakes :/

    Also did you get slapped with customs/duties on that from the ebay guy?

    I'm coming down for CM if it isn't -3994939degrees. OR if we're going to get beer afterwards and/or sample the herbal stuff.



    Also looking for those in 700c format ^ Velocity deep v's. They were going for like $50 pair on ebay.

    That album's BADASS. Have to say that my fave incarnation is Dr. DOOOM though - first come first served is f***ing amazing.

    Very low bust factor unless you're riding like an ass or disobey our escort. Might want to bring a light (or lights) if you don't normally rock 'em, but that's about it.

    I've never understood the bell thing. I find my voice works a whole lot better than a little bell! It's nice to have a bell if you're too shy to talk/yell, but I don't see why it should be required by law.

    I've got a Shimano 600 single on one of my bikes, and a 105 dual on my other bike, and the dual pivot is definitely 'grabbier', but it's more sensitive to adjustment. On the flip side, it also depends on the lever you're using - I've tried both standard road levers (old 600 SLR levers) and a tektro tt lever, and the tt lever definitely seems to give you more leverage than grabbing the road levers from the hoods, so I run the road levers with the stronger brake, and vice versa to even it all out.

    Word to the herbology.....hmmm I'll need to find a place to go BEFORE the CM but AFTER work, and of course some beers afterwards. I'll check with the administrator..(my lovely wife) and we'll see. Somnambulant....any chance of getting operator arrested? Just for giggles mind you, nothing malicious.

    where does it all end? I concur with the bell silliness, but if I'm going to goto CM I must avoid tickets if possible. Lights ..jacket all good.... bell.... i can do. Listening to our escorts...I don't know..lol... as long they don't try to split the group up by making us sit at lights.

    The dual pivots will have a little more stopping power than single, but I didn't find the difference was all that dramatic. The V-brakes on my MTB definately have a higher mechanical advantage.

    I can't remember if I got slapped with any charges or not-it was over a year ago when I bought them. Usually it is not bad if you get it shipped USPS. A lot of times it slips through with nothing that way.

    Don't worry too much about that. As long as you don't get (c0ps) attention by doing something stupid or annoying they won't hassle you. Last cm they let us go through red lights and stuff.

    I am not putting a bell on my bike.
    **** that ****.

    I would tend to say that's generally the rule, but there have been exceptions as (marked for death) operator mentioned.

    Traffic Jammer: Where abouts do you work again?

    I'm definitely up for meeting before AND after for some beer and/or coffee and/or etc. I just work at Bay & Davenport, so the CM meetup spot is pretty close to me. We could be up around here someplace beforehand for a coffee, and then hang out after for a while.

    [QUOTE=operator]Also did you get slapped with customs/duties on that from the ebay guy?QUOTE]

    ask him to write "gift" on the canada customs form. but, if the package is big enough (wheels, frames) they open it anyway and charge you duty. i once payed $20 duty on a bike frame i paid $12 for.

    BTW - i fail to see how antiquated single pivots stop as well as modern dual pivots. the only older brakes that can match modern dual pivots are those old mafac racer centre-pulls.

    FYI writing gift on a canada customs forms for ebay can and will get you charged these days. Customs and Transport Canada are really trying to cut down on such things and have become much more attuned to such thing. So if you do it and end up having to go to court don't say you weren't warned. Just a warning from a guy with a friend at Customs Canada

    how can canada customs prove something isn't a gift (aside from the fact that there is a receipt in the package)?

    Umm because nearly every ebay transaction includes, as you've already realized, a receipt. Plus they can just contact the sender and ask them and I bet they are not going to remeber to lie to save your butt.

    Strange how quickly they can move when some possible revenue is at stake, let's use the taxpayers dollars to drag the taxpayers sorry ass to court. Duty from stuff bought off the web, ridiculous. Talk about paying attention to the wrong problem in customs.

    ps. isn't CM next week, not this week? Or did I just misunderstand. This Friday is the 24th, next Friday is the 31st. Isn't CM the last Friday of every month?

    On the topic of Doom-related mcs, MF DOOM (and his umpteen million aliases) is a personal favourite of mine.

    See:
    - Danger Doom - The Mouse and the Mask (MF DOOM and Danger Mouse)
    - Madvillain - Madvillainy (MF DOOM and Madlib)
    - MF DOOM - Operation: Doomsday (MF DOOM circa 1999)
    - Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain (MF DOOM alias circa 2003)

    Any of you prospective CM'ers have a cell phone? I'll be working until 7pm next Friday in all likelihood, but then I can kick it over to wherever you guys are on the ride. No hurry, but as it gets closer to the date let me know your cell # please if you plan on heading to CM.

    Edit: got my spell on.

    Also, the original PC game Doom rules hardcore. Many a night my young self was scared by the giant brainy pink monster that went "crunk crunk".
