Yeah, this saturday 8:45 am. From teh site:

Start: Kipling Subway Station
(south of Dundas St W on Aukland Ave, one block west of Kipling Ave)

I've never been there so I have no idea what it looks like, the startpoint at Finch last week was very familiar to me.

Re: That chopper on campus, there's a UT Club for choppers and there's like one member - the club starter.

Apparently. I guess dcv cv means I'm weaseling out but making it up by buying you a beer No worries.

On another note, I had a private chuckle at the article in this months Bicycling on crank arm length. For a while now I've been trying to track down a 160mm crankset that wasn't a bmx type (hoping for a lower q-factor). It says this length is hard to come by (no ****). Bulletproof are cheap, but again bmx. Miche has a line of road cranks called Young for junior riders but are 155mm. Any thoughts on locating something under $200 that are road/track?

just got back from urbane and picked up a pair of these babies to mount on the pink bike:



the ones on the very bottom. i'm thinking maybe streamers on the ends?
Ok i have a silly? Are you going to mount them toward you or away.
Could work either way & with that monster frame?

i'm thinking mounting them pointing towards me, that's how they're designed. my little cross lever won't fit on there, argh (clamp size too big)! anyone have a spare time trial / reverse brake lever in their parts bin?

That guy is a prof. Emilio was in the shop with him and his crazy bike. Thanks for the "Your Bike Is Hot link.

How about June 10 then? There's no racing that week, so perhaps we could suggest doing a combo track 1 during the usual time and then a track 2 session during the normal race time.

I'll email them, but I'd like to get a firm date first... here's the list of people that expressed interest (stars next to people who can make it on the 10th):

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


EDIT: where's the race? I've been wanting to go and spectate/photograph a race for a while.

I printed off a page of them, cut them out, and put them in my bag.. I should print them on card stock so I can just jam them in people's spokes.

The race is at Hardwood that weekend. I am going up on the Sat to race on Sunday. It would be a good event to go and take photos at. The venue is great and all the top pro's will be there....including me! I have room but will be staying at a hotel Sat evening.
Edit. Oh yeah..you have yer own car.
