sorry for the late reply eyefloater

from what I remember if your standing on the north-west corner of Spadina and Dundas and go west on Dundas it's on the first street you come to on the north side of Dundas

I'm not sure of the name of the street but it's about three or four doors north on the east side next to the place with all the ventriloquist dummies in the window.

I hope that helps, do my directions make any sense?

Osaka Sushi at Bloor and Keele for you westenders. great sushi chef, unpretentious, great staff and are actually japanese (if that matters - points for authenticity anyways). i also enjoy the creative naming of the dishes: "crazy boy roll", "skydome roll", "ninja roll".

Keith, how many beers do you charge to unleash those Hozan pliers of your's on my lock ring and make sure it's tight? I don't trust the pos Park tool we have at C.T. for this one.

prices are fine for quality sushi - about $10-12 a roll (they're pretty large, about 10 or so big pieces). sashimi and a la carte rolls are extra but not mucho expensive.

i don't know about sushi (i'm trying to save for school and i just bought a new frame + import duties argh! and just got an old one painted to no more 'fun' money till next pay), but i could be convinced to go for a ride. i'm off work at 5.

ah the post-exam relief! those are fond memories, yet fading ones.

I don't have any 3/32 cogs. Try Rob at Bikeophile. If he doesn't have em he can prolly get em fairly quick. He does all the Level ordering and stocking so he is yer man.

Steeker: Cycle Therapy has new digs now with full bikes, etc. I'm sure Eyefloater could speak about that a little better though!

Also.. is anyone up for maybe a ride and some food tomorrow after work, and then we can head over to Jet Fuel together? Maybe we could ride out to the beach and grab some food out there someplace, just for a non-Kensington change of scenery. I don't know that area too well, but it looks like a good place for a beer and some food on a sunny Friday!
