Screw you guys. I'm stuck in my office, staring vacantly out my window. I'd like to bust out of here like the big dude in one flew over the cuckoo's nest. Now, where's that water cooler......

I never thought I'd say this, but me too.

And yeah, I'm mostly stuck in my office too. I just went for a little walk around ye olde yorkville at lunch and got a coffee and some sunshine though.

Apparently there's smoke billowing up Bay St though.. I guess something's on fire South of here.

Hey guys,

I don't really post much in here since I'm goin to school in ottawa, and my trips to toronto have usually been sans bike. However, the end of school means I will be back in toronto and would love to get in on the CV goodness I've been reading about, so hopefully I'll be able to make it out. Also if you see a guy riding an orange mercier track frame with bullhorns, say hello! I will probably be wearing a black and red chrome bag.

Also, for anyone that works at a bike shop, I'm on a hunt for a 110mm BB spindle for a cup/cone style BB with thick walls. My cranks are sugino mighty comps so it would have to be a japanese taper. If anyone could help me out finding one I'd be very appreciative, especially since I would much rather get this part locally.

Cheers guys, and way to make me miss toronto more everyday

I ride a green fixie and I live right around the boardwalk...

but it probably wasn't me because I didn't get out on my bike until 1 in the afternoon today.

when were you thinking about doing this? i live on mill street and head down to the spit as well as the cherry beach area quite a lot... i think it should be safe to put away the winter beater....

hey now.. don't get too ahead of yourself.

Man.. people are driving like asshats tonight. Within literally 2 seconds I nearly got doored and then someone made a right turn from the centre lane with no signal. Cripes. The fact that I had a couple pints on me didn't help things either.

On a lighter note I raced my gf home in a cab. I love bicycles.
