you should try a harder/stiffer saddle.
sounds like something that goes against logic. but it works.
saddles w/ gel padding and stuff is usually the worst for you. only useable for short distances.

Hmmmmmm...another poorly advertised Goldsprint event. Go figure.

somnambulant is a n00bzor. Bikechain used to run out of the sustainability office at St. George/Bloor in the underground parking garage. They had a full set of park tools you can use for free although i've never tried.

Unfortuantely June 1st is going to be raining like crazy. Anyone want to go for a ride at 4-5pm?

Edit: Bah Shiznaz.

Only found out about the spints when Sam posted. I looked at the site and it's still got an old race...not updated. It's a shame too I think Toronto would be such a hot GoldSprint City if it were a bit less messer centric. BUT it is early in the resurection so I'll remain optimistic. It used to be a big deal back in the day. I think cycling in general is on the verge of something huge in terms public exposure.

never ignore the tell-tale click of loose crank bolts. i was so looking forward to my ride home last night, and not even a few meters out of the door, i feel my pedal give out with no resistance..looking down, i notice my chain is off my ring. then i notice that the ring has totally buckled and 3 bolts are missing!!!
keith, do you still have any of those bolt wrenches? how about chainrings in 130 bcd? i think that's the size of what you gave me last time.
