My humblest apologies. Sunday is my ride day so I was not here yesterday. Chris...my fill in guy....doesn't have a complete handle on our stock and overlooked our economical fixie wheels. Consider the inconvenience and disappointment worthy of a 20% discount. Again my apologies but I have to get a ride in sometime

I'm so lucky that I get to park in the Executive's Underground here at work. Quite secure.
Inaccessible to public. Had my birthday(40th)... OMG fun!!!!!! My lovely wife and kids got me 40 gifts and hid them about the house and then my daughters made clues, .... too much fun, I'm a lucky guy.
Books, clothes, new bike pants, jacket and shoes on the way....SHOES!!!!!
But the COOLEST BY FAR is this silver bike chain ring they got me, built just like an actual bike chain but immobile (it is a ring afterall). I have a couple pics of it I can upload this evening, can't stop looking at it. Hope everyone had a good time at JetFuel, and had a good week-end.

I have to lock up on UofT campus, which I can only imagine is a great thief target. ugh. I'm considering starting to bring my bike upstairs with me every morning. That's what I did in my old job, but I had an enclosed cubicle there with room for my bike plus I was only on the 2nd floor. Here we have a tiny elevator, I'm on the 4th floor, and everyone's cubicles face away from the centre of the room (ie. no enclosure).

Man, I could NEVER lock up outside at the university. It's like a giant shopping mall there.

Anyone here looking for a 1" threaded track fork? I have a pearl Rossin track fork, with purple logos on the forks. Its steer tube should be long enough to put on a 54-ish frame.

I am leaving the city on Thursday morning, and am willing to let it go for $20. I live at Roncesvalles and Queen.

these days i'm lucky enough to be able to bring my bike inside at work and stash it in our storage room. don't even need to lock it there. i used to have to lock it outside at yonge/bloor and i never had anything stolen, maybe i'm just lucky. i think the ticket is to use two differnent kinds of locks. maybe a heavy NY lock that you can leave where you normally lock up and a lighter cable lock. loop the cable through both wheels and up through the saddle if there's room. it's a pain, but if you're only lock/unlocking once a day, not a big deal. i'm thinking i'll go back to this plan when i start at george brown in the fall.

he's fairly reasonable and he works well with my insurance.
I was there last week and he's still taking new patients. Alice in the front is an absolute sweetheart.

i read somewhere that dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession. probably stems from the fact that all of your patients don't really want to see you, that their only memories of you are of pain and discofort. i guess they start to take it personally. they should do double duty as massage therapists so their patients have something to look forward to.

wusses. The last time I got fillings they didn't even deaden the area.. Of course, they were just very minor surface fillings in the enamel (which obviously doesn't contain any nerves).

He mentioned this to me once at Cavern and I think that was awhile ago, wasn't it? Because MEC has always had cameras but they have never had signs up saying that there was video surveillance. I put it in their suggestion box and they emailled me to say that the would put them up and sure enough, about 3 months ago, they put up some signs.

Last week, I was driving by MEC and saw a guy using a hacksaw on a lock out in front. It was probably a case of a misplaced key because it was a really crappy looking bike and it was broad daylight but I called MEC up anyways and said "Hey, there is a guy sawing through a lock out front!" and the guy on the phone said "I'll take care of it!" and threw the phone down fast and, I would assume, ran out to check on things. I love those guys.

cavernmech - i forgot if i asked you already (ignore me if i did): what do you have in the way of 1" threaded headsets? i'm looking for something cheapish, steel if possible for the pink bike. i don't think i can salvage the one it came with. what do you charge for installation?

YES! Let's use this to keep track of who wants to go.. I'll edit it as people reply. Then we'll figure out when, and the rest of the details.

1) eyefloater
2) somnambulant
3) traffic jammer
4) shiznaz
5) cavernmech
6) sr20det
7) qqy
8) sweep242
9) Offhoff
10) operator

* Please only say you want to go if you can definitely go. This should be a solid list of people who are interested. I don't want to get to the point of narrowing down a date and then have a bunch of people say "oh, I don't think I can afford it" or something. Figure $50 or so (correct me if I'm wrong please!) and basically a full Saturday. We can maybe go up for the intro class, do that, grab some dinner someplace, and then stick around for the evening races.
