Just south of Lawrence there was this guy in a black shirt on a black fixie at around 21:30 who I thought might be on here, not really sure. Speaking about that, if you see a fellow cyclist on the street, how should you go about introducing yourself as a member of BF, or ask if they're a member?
There are a ton of fixed riders around town but only a handful on here. We all need a marking on our hand
Toronto Fixed
BF/SS/FG
But we do meet up prearranged time to time !

If I rode a recumbent, I'd have one of this safety flags with BF stencilled on it.

We seriously need a non-obnoxious bike forums jersey that we would wear. Some place is like min. 15 jersey order @ $51 USd each. I'm sure someone can come up with a non-obnoxious BF jersey design.

Shiznaz, right up your alley.

Sugoi does semi custom jerseys that aren't crazy-priced. they have a "semi custom" program where you basically choose graphics and your text and they plug it into a template. here are the prices.

if you want my vote though, i like these guys. but not everyone's into wool though, so. i'd go for a custom wool 100%.

EDIT: i could see us in something like this.

good idea, it's what i like about this forum; it's not just a bunch of annonymous posters, we actually meet each other in the flesh and ride bikes together. go figure.

which jeseys did you like, the woolies or the regulars?
