    yeah, I'll likely be there for CM if it's not pouring down rain. And beers afterwards = definitely.

    Again, if anyone wants my number to meet up, just PM me.

    Well you can leave anytime you want. Usually it averages like an hour - hour half. My ass starts hurting because of the ultralow speeds and because of somnambulants linuxcafe.

    I'll be there. The shop "closes" at 7pm, but I'll make sure to be out the door by then. I've got Somna and T.J.'s cell #s, so I'll hit up a pay phone and track you guys down once I'm close. And **** rain. The temperature will be warm so let's go out and have some fun. Worst case scenario: we all suffer through getting our asses soaked, then we go back to my place and throw our **** in the dryer for a half hour.

    Drinking shall then ensue. Oh yes, it shall.

    I'm in for CM, but I may be late getting down there, probably more like 6:30. Is the route always the same? If it's like last time, it won't be hard to catch up-5 km/hr is blistering fast for these things.

    Also, if anyone feels like it, I'm probably going to ride the donut ride on Sunday, if the weather is good. I want to get some miles on my road bike, I am out of shape.

    Yeah, it's a big roadie-in-spandex, carbon fiber parade type ride, 70-90 km, every Saturday and Sunday. In the summer there are 200+ riders. Starts at 9am, at Laird and Eglinton, and heads north of the city. Stops mid ride at a bakery-thus "donut".

    yes, he did.

    speaking of bags, has anyone here ever used any backpack-style mess bags? I'd like to give one a try, but I've never seen anything but the Ortleib ones in any stores here. I know Chrome/Reload make them as well, but no stores carry much of their stuff. I've only ever seen two Chrome bags hanging in Bikes On Wheels once. They're pretty expensive, so I don't really want to order one without checking them out in person first.

    So my lovely wife is going to be home around 5 and I'll be able to leave afterwards.
    Is it a nice headset?

    i've never tried them becuase i prefer the one shoulder thing (kind of the essence of a messenger bag) but i noticed that they sell chromes at curbside cycle in the annex. maybe they have a backpack style there? IMO, the baddest of the bad muthas of messenger backpacks is the pac designs deluxe with the "X" strap.

    i need to put my 46t chainring back on; i huffed and puffed and just couldn't keep up withe cyclops-man. maybe i'm just out of shape; oh yeah, that's it.

    If you can afford them I've never seen anything that tops the PAC bags as work bags. The X-strap and the ridiculously over-the-top construction makes them just about the best investment you can make. The problem is that they are really expensive (fair when you look at the workmanship and materials) and it can take awhile to get your hands on one when your order them.

    Curbside did have the Chrome backpack when I was in there last but they have been shifting around stock so quickly that who knows what will be in there next time.

    I'm personally saving for a beatiful PAC deluxe with X-strap, hidden pocket, lock strap and a custom front panel <drools> but first I need my frame to finish being airbrushed (can't hurrt art though) and built up so I can enjoy spinning when its THIS NICE OUTSIDE.

    the custom bags take a while to get but if you can live with a stock colour then you can always call them and ask what they have in. i got mine shipped to me and it took about a week, but would have waited to get it if i had to. although push the envelope bags look just as good quality to me, even smarter in design in some ways. plus you can stroll into urbane and talk to the person who sews them. anyone know if they're making their hip pouches anymore? i sold mine last year (stupid) and now i want another one. don't seem to have them at the usual spots though...

    yeah, my bag is just my ever day bag (I'm a nerd by trade). I currently have a large Timbuk2 bag, but it's been annoying me. Nothing seems to sit right in it, and stuff is always jabbing me in the back. Plus I find the parts where the strap attaches are somewhat stabby as well. Some extra pockets would be nice also. I'm not opposed to just finding a different 1-shoulder affair, but it just seems like a backpack would help with some of those things also (especially one with a lightly padded back).

    re: CM: Does anyone want to meet up before? I get off at 5:00 and I work at Bay & Davenport. I'm thinking about just going someplace for a coffee to kill time.
