Anyone know if any of the courier companies are doing summer hiring soon? I'm pondering trying to get a job before I go to China this summer. No so much worried about cash (freelancing pays the bills) but more in the experience of being on my bike and of working in such an odd part of the corporate world...

The ftw() function shall recursively descend the directory hierarchy rooted in path. For each object in the hierarchy, ftw() shall call the function pointed to by fn, passing it a pointer to a null-terminated character string containing the name of the object, a pointer to a stat structure containing information about the object, and an integer.

has anyone bought a pair of clipless mtb shoes only to find them a wee bit tight? i understand that they'll stretch a bit..i just hope it'll be enough. the shoes are new sidi dominators, size 41 (small narrow feet). got them off ebay for cheap after months of shopping around. i need to replace my shimano road shoes.. sick and tired of walking around like a duck and falling on my ass.. wiped out the other week while walking on newly mopped floors in my building.

normal width sidis tend to be a little narrow, which is why they make the "mega" (wider) size. i bought a size up and they fit like normal shoes would. be aware that they will stretch once you wear them more, particularly if they get wet or it is really hot outside. are you wearing normal socks or thin cycling socks in them?

Whatever you do, don't say it's for the summer.

i've got double socks now (ankle socks over wool knee socks..or argyle when the weather permits but that's another story..) which fit well in my current road shoes. i don't have thin cycling socks but i should probably get a couple pairs for warmer weather riding. i've tried size 41 sidis before and the fit was ok. hindsight being what it is, maybe i should've got a 41.5 or a non-narrow 41. fack, i hope they stretch out enough.

Are you wearing thick socks now? Thin stuff for the summer will provide some more toe moving room. I have Dominator's as well and they are REALLY tight when I am wearing Wooly Booly's. With regular cool max they are super sweet.

if you've got two pairs or socks on now, then in the summer/spring with thin socks they should fit fine. FWIW i wear woolie boolie socks from MEC (or another wool equivalent) in my sidi dominators and they fit fine. with cycling socks they are a bit too roomy so you'll notice a difference if you wear something thinner. are you using the sidi insoles? try putting them in if you aren't they make a big difference in fit as well.

I stopped selling Velocity rims about 5 years ago when they raised their prices by about 50%. I would guess that you could get em online for a fair bit cheaper than I could get em to you for.

hey jay-dubya, thanks for the suggestions. oh, and that cavern-guy too. i'm definitely wearing the insoles, they look pretty unforgiving without them. my woolie-boolies are burgundy knee-high from chocky's. they're probably for school girls.
