    That's CSI time isn't it? All us old guys aren't allowed out then our eyes are bad in the dark making us more prone to getting burnt for something. At our age they'll just let us spend the night in jail if it's too late. I'm looking forward to CM and beers Sweep .. I do tend to get homebodied, even my wife tells to to GTF out sometimes.

    Speaking of that Lemond Fillmore, Tektro RX2.0 cross levers should be about $30CDN (yes, I just remembered our conversation at Urbane now - I'm sorry).

    Thanks for the props! It was cool to meet you guys (Sweep, operator, Cavit8) at the Kensington park.

    Hey Sweep, your IRO is a stealth looking bike, especially with that bad-ass stem! I can't help but think of H.R. Giger and the Alien Trilogy (I'm not aknowledging the travesty that is the the 4th film.)

    P.S. I love empinatas, er I mean empanadas!

    No worries! Unfortunately, I already picked up some cross levers.

    Now I'm on mission for some cool bullhorns...

    CM this Friday! Hope the weather stays well...

    Nice to meet you too

    Cool bullhorns? I dunno here goes:
    http://www.profile-design.com/2006_p...s/airwing.html
    http://www.profile-design.com/2006_p...rs/stoker.html

    Having tried on sweeps stynace stratos (sweep just what's the width of those? Base & at the bar ends?) and having ordered 42cm. I think they'll be too small width wise for me. My road bars are 44cm and I love them.

    Profile says they make the 44 version but no one on Earth actually sells them.

    Also 32flavours what's with the 9pm thing, assuming that's pm. Cause if yeah then i'm going to ride down tomorrow instead of ******ing it out on lamez transit.

    I have 42cm bars and they're perfect for riding around the city in tight traffic

    Well 1cm off each side shouldn't be too much of a difference.

    Man it's gorgeous outside today... shoulda ridden to work. Unfortunately, I completely mauled my knees hiking 7-9 hrs/day all weekend so if we're riding today I might have to skip out early on account of gibbledness. So... is there any interest in a Critical Vacuum for tonight? Bueller?

    POS server ate my reply. Yeah, it's the Avid version-rollamajig. It works really well so far, I am happy with it. If I didn't use it, I'd need a tandem shift cable.

    If the situation can be explained somewhat quickly/easily, please do. This sounds interesting.

    Well, I'm talking about this thing:
    http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/Extras/product_20952.shtml

    It replaces the ~220 degree loop of cable housing between the frame and rear deraileur with a roller. Less friction, especially when things get a little dirty. Better shifting. Additionally, I'm running bar end shifters with the cable routed under the bar tape on 48cm wide bars. That means the shift cable has to be *long*. The roller shortens the shift cable on my bike by a few inches, allowing me to use a standard 2.1 m shift cable instead of a tandem one.

    Oh dear, I don't really blame you fellows on staging a mutiny- I must bail, since I have an intervening engagement. Two of them, actually. They're fuzzy and much more adorable than any of you lot.

    I'm getting kittens! Eeee!

    But I am up for a ride tomorrow night. Please forgive my insolence.
