I've got some 32 hole Alex rims on my cross bike that are a little shallower than the V's. There was also a deeper section model available, but I thought it was a little excessive looking. I peeled the ugly a$$ed stickers off them before I built my wheels, and I don't remember the model, but they were relatively cheap. $35 ea IIRC. Got em at Urbane.

They are not light rims, but they are really strong. I have been beating on them in the DVP mtb trails regularly for over a year with no truing required. (except once.....the front when I got doored by an SUV-minor touchup......@#$%#$* SUV drivers).

LOL, true. It'll take me maybe an hour and a half to get to the area...where are you riding, downtown?

Edit: ^Exaggeration in italics: it would probably take me at least 2 hours. An hour to Newmarket, then an hour to Richmond Hill.

Just when I thought I was out of the woods, NSERC decides to pull my summer research grant funding because my study doesn't fall under the umbrella of their "mandate statement". I have until Monday to come up with a completely different project. Feel free to CV sans me, fellas. Doesn't look like I'm going out anytime soon.

I planned a project which studies the effects of background music with different parameters (manipulating tempo and mode, etc.) on the agitation of dementia patients. Apparently it doesn't focus enough on "basic processes of psychology", which is what NSERC is interested in. Although I thought my hypotheses for a cognitive vs. affective model was pretty "basic processes". Bleh. Anyways, now I'm writing up something on phoneme and pitch change perception.

Wow. I just realized that no one will understand or care about anything I just wrote. Anyways, the point is, feel sorry for me because I'm sitting at my computer writing up a research proposal instead of being outside riding like some of you lucky barstards.

Ah, so will you be riding on Bloomington and Ninth Line? Hmm, that way I could just take 48 down all the way to Ballantrae and take Lakeshore Rd. Ever had the Ballantrae burgers?

^Well, I'll bike down Yonge and see if we meet up. I'm wearing a yellow windbreaker on a silver brodie. Who knows, maybe you'll be going north as I travel south.

Edit: operator, I don't have an account with facebook, but here'sme.
