I have some Gore Bikewear pants that I love. I got em from a friend in Vienna and don't think anyone local sells em. If you can get em I HIGHLY recommend them.

All of their stuff is cut nice and long for cycling. They have 2 different styles of pants...full Goretex, kind of baggy with ankle zips and velcro. Lycra base with Goretex front panels...these fit like normal tight's. I have the latter and love them. I have a different pair of full Gore for winter/deluge type conditions. Full waterproof ones I find way too hot for anything but cold conditions.

If you aren't going to ride this weekend you might want to go down for the Niagara Classic road race. There is a sick steep climb on the finish straight that usually has everyone drooling/hacking all over themselves. Add in a potentially rainy day and that makes for some great action shots.

horror movies seem to do that, make a franchise out of one character. chucky springs to mind. nothing wrong with a little person in full body make up, that's good watchin'. remember howard the duck? quality.

don't forget canadian cyclist.
or just post it up on LBS bulletins.
I'd go w/ ebay for the very last resort. You can always try to trade the frame for parts.

I just got back from my first day working at scotiabank real-estate at 61 front street. They already have me sifting through lease agreements! Heres to a year-long contract of this 9-5 stuff! At least I'm earning more than ever, so maybe I should work towards a nice italian road bike. Fixed is fun and all, but anything over a century is really best left to gears (but big props to somnambulant and eyefloater anyways)
