    could be hair line cracks better get it checked and I guess I am a pansy too, right now it is steady and slow for me that prevents the shooting pains

    Well, here is to hoping my list of references checks out, and that I spend all summer cooped up indoors at Scotia Plaza doing soul killing logistical work for a bank... !

    ps. I was referring to whining about us not going out for a ride, not whining about injuries. Complain all you want about how your joints ache on those cold damp mornings.

    I had great fun beering up afterwards..... Keithy you making it next time?
    What is the drinking age here, can Operator come play too?
    Will your mom kill us if we send you home loaded? Can you get home loaded?
    Some tricks just shouldn't be attempted sometimes.

    You know while it might be karmic-ally skewed we could all leave it a bit early as well, if we spot the perfect patio.

    Hey, I'm actually moving to Toronto at the end of the summer. Unfortunately, it looks like my bike won't be making the trip with me (actually I might need to sell it for some cash to get me through some upcoming time of unemployment), so I will be in the market for a bike/frame. Any suggestions as to shops in the city? or should I secure a frame before hand? Checked out Toronto CL and didn't see much in the way of locals selling frames.

    Don't bother with Toronto's CL, you get the usual 70's suicide stem shifter bike being sold for $100/$200. And then the $1000 fuji conversion.

    Yes, you can pay me $20 when you meet me. Hell make it $50. I need some cash.

    This is the route that's happening, pretty simple: http://www.bikerally.org/trainingmap...LakeWilcox.pdf

    I'm going out for a short ride before the swirling mass of death gets here in about 1-2 hours.
