    It's that time again: Critical Mass, this Friday. I'll be there if I get off work in time. Anyone else planning on heading out?

    On that note, if anyone spots a shop in Toronto get new stock in of the Kryptonite stubby Evolution 2000 lock, please let me know. I've been trying to track down a new lock for ages.

    i've been looking for one since march! a bunch of stores suggest putting your name on a waiting list which might improve your chances, but it's hardly a guarantee. i think it's more a matter of timing. i've randomly gone into stores and have been told that they had a shipment in a week ago and sold out, or that they will be getting a bunch in in a week.. for what it matters, i was shopping for groceries in kensington last week, stopped by bikes on wheels and they said they'd be getting "more" locks in this week. -e

    operator, you can leave your bike at my work (wellington/portland) which is what i'll be doing if i make it down. the only drawback is you can't drink later than me. heh..

    Too effing heavy for me. If I know I'm going to be locking my bike up for any extended amount of time, I just ride "White Sputter" (****e bikes unite!). Otherwise, I'm all for short u-locks and keeping eye out the window of whatever building I'm in for the moment.

    Of course, my u-lock's going to give before that juggernought of a chain ... so *hi5* for showing your bike the love it deserves.

    actually.. you'll be amazed how well the weight is distributed when you wear it around your waist. it's also pretty good as a visual deterrent. pair it up with a mini-u around the rear wheel and chances are the thief will go for easier pickings.

    Like I said, if I get off work in time I'll be there.

    Keep an eye out for this garbage pile on wheels:

    Hey all,

    Couldn't make it out tonight - I was at the studio until 9:30.

    Thanks for all the kind words regarding my bike. The story behind it is basically just that I traded in a lot of old components, etc. I had sitting around to a guy in Kensington Market that does bike recycling (Mike, not George). That got me a decent amount of credit, which I used after digging through his piles of parts on a few occasions. I stripped the frame, repainted it "Recreational White" and then traced the lugs with a red enamel. Most of the parts are no-name, but the pedal setup is high-end Suntour ($10, found in a bin at the bike shop I'm pseudo working at). I pieced the chain together myself using a few links at a time (Mike buys his chain in bulk, but someone working on a jewelery project had sweet-talked him into letting them take a bit of it apart - they went ... overboard). The bars are just a set of cruiser bike bars that I thought would work well flipped over - they do. The saddle has been owned by at least 2 other people before me (it just keeps getting passed around) and is held together in the back by some artfully wrapped duct tape. Pedaling cadence on this bike is an exercise in humility and comedy. I think the gearing's something like 46/20 ... so I'm the guy pedaling down Queen or Dundas east at 120rpm everyday.

    Aaanyway, some drunk neighbour just showed up at my door asking for an icecube (yes, AN icecube) so I think I've got some other issues to attend to now.

    Ps. This bike's a beater through and through, but a lot of love when into it - sh!te bikes unite!

    in other news, i was rushing to meet some buddies, speeding west on queen, crossed the streetcar tracks to pass a guy on a bmx, caught a rut when merging back into the lane, flew over the bars. got a scrape on the temple, twisted my wrist, and the worst thing: somehow managed to twist my stem/bar to the left..i'm worried about busting the quill even though it feels relatively tight. that should be the least of my problems because i can barely lift anything with my right hand.. so much for riding anytime soon even if i do get the bike fixed. i'm coming over on monday keith!!!

    hey, i'm steps from the cavern/sneaky dees place at niagara/king.. anyone coming out?
