    Re the sale

    Maybe we need to run some block and intercept. Im prepared to tackle old dudes for shiny campy trinkets, n.o.s. this old dude...

    I went to one mec sale.. pretty hurting it was. Not sure if that was my timing or, some act of god. Stuff had cobwebs on it. Few old hurting ******mobile tandems, and other such jokermobiles. Not a batmobile in sight.. "pout".

    Clothing that some rock climber died in...

    Drafting a bus doesnt count so dont worry about that.

    Im going to come with name for those.. road whales or.. something.

    Double red monty: Ok this is when you are at the light. Its red for you, and on your left and right you have streetcars stopped and loading. You can scoot through the light quickly.

    Fooling officer tom: Ok this I only did once. I never heard of anyone else do it. I was going down the street wrong way down a one way. The officer points this out to me, I say ill ride on the sidewalk then. He smiles and says ok no problem.. uh someone needs to reread the law book.

    More later

    Does anyone want a size small black protec skate helmet for free? I bought it a few months ago but haven't used it at all because it fits my head funny. Anyone?

    you should get something like these handlebars with a deep drop stem and funky grips. Also a sparkly saddle and fluted cranks would be sweet.

    not sure yet but the seller says he only charges actual shipping costs (ie. no $30
    packing fee" or whatever).

    Souds lke one of the good guys then. When I rediscovered Action figures I went nuts buying stuff off of ebay as faraway as australia (transformer toy still original packaging). One guy from the states however screwed me. He stuck the items in a huge box, it could have fit a box 1/4 the size.

    In any case. I had a few tricks when getting stuff from the states, not everyone wants to play ball though.
    If you can get them to write GIFT no value on the package, or value $15 as I believe anything under $20 is free of handling fee and tax. It can also be a sample, it can also be a warranty item. Any of these are clear of taxes and handling fees.

    As for taking care of your frame. Aluminum foil shiny side is good for removing some rust. A bit of linseed oil poured inside your frame and sloshed around helps protect the tubes.

    I'd be up for that. Let me know when/where. I'd be up for going for a shorter ride or laps someplace before or after the swap as well.

    ps. free coffee at Starbucks today if you bring your own cup (for Earth Day).

    Starbucks is evil - queue the greenpeace *****s.
    Do you guys want to meet up before the swap meet starts? How about 10 at Moon Bean? (Note i'm going to be GTA passing it if it's wet or rainy).

    Perhaps, but it's still decent quality free coffee. I'm also an espresso ***** and they're the only chain coffee place that can (on average) pull a proper cup I find. Given the choice between a chain and an indie shop that does espresso, the choice will always be the indie (unless I've had a bad shot there ). I haven't found anywhere else within a couple blocks of my house that is consistent.

    Also, yes, before the swap. I'm fairly certain it's going to be rainy though, but that's not going to stop me. I feel the need to stretch my legs. I'm not even *that* interested in the swap, I just want to get out on the bike for a bit.
