    i'm going out for glasses shopping tomorrow.
    and they are going to be thicker than somna's and operatorz's COMBINED!

    it'd be awesome and i'd have 2 permanant red marks on my nose, cause my glasses will be too heavy.
    physics hertz.

    **** that **** man sr20det. Low index lenses FTW or maybe contacts. You'll need both. Contacts for riding and glasses for ... everywhere else.

    -/+ 4 is usually where they draw the line for regular vs super light lenses. This is one place, where i'd like some carbon fibre. My TI frame sux0rs.

    Critical mass no rain or I no come.

    By the way Gboy - I saw you going up Yonge st. just south of St. Clair around 5:50pm.
    Yeps, I noticed you going southbound, but I wasn't sure if I waved or just looked in your direction.

    On my way downtown earlier today, just north of the 401 on Yonge a driver clipped me and dragged me a few metres until I got free and when I knocked on her window at the light, she was oblivious to what she did. I bonked out going back home on Warden after 16th Ave.; serves me right for just taking a few bananas for fuel.

    Oh, I might be in the city tomorrow, but will definitely show up for CM on Friday (it'll be my first).

    Main and Kingston Road!
    Don't actually come to my work we will be closed!
    The Donut shop across the street is the designated meeting spot! The Dip and Sip! The coffee is terrible! "Looks sort of like a rib cage from the outside but that is where the charm ends"-the toronto star

    That is all for now

    I'll try to make it out tonight too. Ditto for critical mass.

    eyefloater: 12 degrees on Friday? are you on crack? The weather network says 24 and enviro canada says 20. Both say showers or thunderstorms though. Might be fun.

    Also, this Sunday is the first Pedestrian Sunday of the year in Kensington. Anyone want to head down there? Stupid eyefloater lives in kensington but works on Sunday. d'oh!

    Odds are they would be thicker than mine. I have pretty low index glass, but a weirdo astigmatism. I can totally get away without them though, as long as I don't have to read anything far away (signs/etc).

    Alright. June 10th is confirmed for the people in the list quoted below. If I missed anyone, let me know. Cost is $30 including bike rental. Looks like with this number Cavernmech and I will both be driving. Perhaps we can meet up at the shop in the morning and caravan from there?

    **** Please remember to bring your own pedals, shoes and helmets. ****

    Bikeophile..aka Rob...has been busy being an Executroid with the renowned Canadian Postal Service. My spies tell me he will be leaving the confines of his postal cubicle and joining all on some rides in the near future.

    SS road/cross? Chain length would be the only challenge with vertical drops, but with the right gearing and maybe a half link I imagine you could get it close without going to an ENO eccentric hub. For geared, pretty easy breezy. I have an old Bianchi Grizzly that I use for touring. The only consideration (apart from it being a little on the heavy side) is the use of road levers with cantilever brakes. I needed to use an extra wide hanger for my old bike, otherwise the lever travels through it's range without grabbing hold. I also use 26". I'm not sure if 700's would fit. I should try that, though. Hrrmmmmm....

    ps congrats to sr20det

    I will be up for C.M. this time around also. Where is the meeting spot for the ride now anyway? I am pretty sure it is not on Temperence anymore but it has been awhile since I went on one...well about 5 years actually. MMMMMMMMM...beer!
    Do you want to run road type bars or stick with flat style? It shouldn't be difficult to do either way.

    Mavic makes these cool brake adapters to use 700c wheels on a 26" frame. They are like the brake boosters of old...except they have a second set of brake posts higher up for the increased wheel diameter.

    I had Sachs in mind (ie. not just a welder, but a designer of classics) ... but I suppose youngblood here can lead the revolution for the perfect freeride frame + suspension design. *ahem* Which I require prototypes of.

    i just got a pair of these with the prescription lens inserts; they look a bit dork but they work, and you get that bobby julich flair. great for riding and they'll take a strong prescription.

    I like how that topic turned into a pro/anti *** debate immediately. However, it seems that at the most basic level, the more guns you have, and the more guns you leave around the house loaded, the more likely you are to shoot your neighbour in the face through several walls by mistake. Lets blame the guy who accidentally shot through the wall, not the guns. But then lets not blame ourselves for letting that guy have more guns than Jesus, becuase he probably would have still accidentally shot through his bathroom mirror with his toothbrush anyways.

    I just got an idea to weld together a bike (art) out of old assault *****s... that would be pretty sweet.

    Engineering kids need to learn that drinking in excess does not make you cool. The sheer amount of destruction caused by the engineers during frosh week is monumental... take 500 nerdy (male) kids who have mostly never drank before, pickle them with kegged beer and bourbon and then dye them purple, put them in a jumpsuit with a hard hat and set them loose. That way you can either be completely drowning in work, or in booze. What a life!

    I did enough drinking in my first year of university, and I wasn't even an engineer.
