    It was only taken with my old 2MP point & shoot, so it's 1600x1200 @ 180dpi. So, not very big. And it was also taken at I think the highest iso the camera does. But I think the dirtiness / grain works for these images.. I wish it was film grain though.

    And php + mysql are my weapons of choice. email or pm me.

    holy crap. cavernmech, you should stock the track frames from www.ostro.com.pl !! I'd buy up your entire first batch and be set for bikes for the rest of my life.

    From this month's cyclometer email:

    4. From Scorchers to Alley Cat Scrambles coming to the Market Gallery

    From Scorchers to Alley Cat Scrambles: the amazing history of the bicycle in Toronto tells the story of the revolutionary changes to transportation in the city and how the bicycle contributed to improving our roads, liberating women and modernizing consumerism, tourism and professional sport.

    The exhibit, which runs from May 20 - October 1, will feature items from the collections of the City of Toronto Culture Division, Museum & Heritage Services and the Toronto exceptional collection of historic bicycles, posters, memorabilia and ephemera. Mr. Shields, a collector for over 50 years, has donated much of his collection to the National Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa. This exhibit is the first time that items of this scale and quality have been gathered together into an exhibit.

    The Market Gallery, in partnership with the Community Bicycle Network, presents the fascinating history of the bicycle in Toronto from "scorchers" the pioneering daredevils of the 1800s to the illegal late-night "alley cat" races of today's bicycle messengers. Featuring personal histories, compelling stories and beautiful old bicycles, From Scorchers to Alley Cat Scrambles chronicles how the bicycle has influenced the social, political and economic life of Toronto residents since 1869.

    They were able to catch you on their 50lb mountain bikes? For shame.

    Dunhill was just interested in the "sub-culture" event to flog their product. They had a decent share of the smokes market in B.C. but wasn't doing well in the Ontario market. I don't know if their Ontario market share went up after this.....I would guess not. I don't know exactly how Dunhill got involved although I would guess that a rep for them gets his coffee's from Jetfuel. I always thought of the H.P.R. as a perfect addition to the X-Games. Thrills....spills...young sexy folks in lycra...how could you go wrong. Very spectator friendly as well. Squid in N.Y.C has been trying to get one going there. With the kind of hook-ups they have with Puma you would think it would be fairly easy. 2 years and counting...nothing yet. Kind of gives you an idea of the barriers involved. When I win the lottery *crosses fingers* we will have a velodrome to ride here in T.O. Until some rich guy that LOVES track cycling gets involved, I don't see one here in the foreseeable future.

    Maka...one of the owners of Ostro, is a scamming piece of crap that I will never do business with again. He is originally from T.O. I gave him some business based on that. He burned me bad. I warn anyone considering doing business with him to avoid him at all costs. *end rant*

    One of them crossed my path and it occurred to me for about an instant to bolt but the bad karma involved doing that was too great. We were actually chuckling about it..... "I'm staying in front of the cars" "OK but stop for the lights....please" I was nice, they were nice, it was nice, and yes I will be more careful.

    The officer told me I am allowed to take the lane. yay. I didn't ask him if, as a civie, he'd ever tried to take the lane in DT Toronto.

    Cavern I'm sooo down with the velodrome after the lottery win.

    So here's my idea. All the forumites in the Toronto thread donate 2 bucks a week. We pool the $$ and buy Lotto 6/49 tickets (otherwise known as stupidity tax) When we win (of course such a noble cause would have to win) we can erect the "Bikeforums Single Speed and Fixed Gear Toronto Thread Memorial Velodrome" otherwise known as the B.F.S.S.F.G.T.T.M.V. what choo think?

    True dat. But the fact that most people do it while drinking and it's still an olympic sport isn't a negative thing, is it? But either way, I was born 'n raised in St. John's, so I had to get that in there.
    yeah, i was kidding.

    i thought it was amazing the amount of support that newfoundland gave to the curling team (shutting down schools so everyone could watch the gold medal match); it's great that they were so proud of their athletes.

    as for a sport you can play with a drink in your hand: is there any other kind?

    I like how you think. I think you would be perfect for the facility manager/beer procurement officer position.

    Okay, before I run out the door I have one last thing: anyone have a tracklisting for a good "strike fear in the hearts of men" training ride playlist?

    we don't need to win the lottery to do that, we get enough forum lurkers chipping in their toonies and we can throw down in honest eds parking lot once the weather is warm enough. if we don't have enough for a keg we can just have a big dice game.
