I'd like one to express the posturing, pseudo-cred-hungry, soap opera vibe that is the main ssfg forum.

Operator..... did you work from a template for the bike gear? If so was it a vector piece.... where'd ya get it? I've had some requests for forum jersey making as well.

Keith how's your jersey guy at pricing?

I am not handling the jersey's for the 24 hour team but I know of the guy who is doing them. His name is Norm and his shop is called Axis Gear. They have done jerseys for Cycle Solutions among others and his work looks first rate. I know he will do small runs but not sure of pricing. Look him up....they are in Toronto...hes a nice guy.
Whatever you do, DO NOT use Ostro. They are scamming assclown pieces of crap.

Oh yeah....I forgot to mention there are a few jersey companies that let you mess with design on their website. Sugoi I believe has this feature and a smaller outfit called Atac something or other.

Anyone doing any riding this week in the evenings?

cavernmech: I think I might take you up on the air zoundz test-drive. It seems like people are driving like even bigger idiots than usual in the past couple of weeks.

ohhh ZOUNDZ how much... I had an interesting ride in with a complete tool grinding me up against the curb so they could pass the streetcar. I've GOT to figure out a way of getting these drivers edumakated PDQ, before I do something stupid. I'm goin' to the cops I think.

I wasn't touchin' the cousin line with a ten foot pole. Too straight, too easy..

just a nagging mom-like reminder to sign up for the ride for heart if you haven't already. june is fast approaching (holy titty ****ing christ)..i think you can still save a few bucks if you register now. it's a fun ride with buds and you can pretty much goof-off. the friends i ride with don't go fixed but who gives a darn tootin. i should raise some money but if there's anything i hate more than collecting money, it's collecting money.

You have bottle cage braze ons? The bottle for the horn goes in a bottle cage. Come by any time to test it.
