and for the bonus points...... who produced the album and did the cover art which featured a cling vinyl banana peel over top a flesh coloured printed banana sans peel?

Steeker ... "testicular torsion" ... it came up in another thread. I have NO idea if what you're experiencing is of this level, but it might be worth a few minutes research/chat with your doctor.

It totally sounds like you've changed the arch of your back and/or how you place your weight. hmmm This is completely from when you went fixed? I can see having to apply negative pressure to your cranks changing the way weight is distributed. Was there any pain issues with freewheeling? Or that your position was off but acceptable then..and it's now becoming apparent with fixing. Odd

Thanks to Goki and Cavernmech, operator is now ride-ful! Props!

Anyone want to go for a ride right now or in the next couple hours? I'm going to be chilling DT for a bit.

i don't know all of Montreal but I can give you a few ideas. Rue St. Denis has a pretty good strip of shops and restaurants. There is a wicked good smoked meat joint a couple blocks south of Roy on St. Denis..."the" place for meat I am told. there is also a super good breakfast joint on the same stretch called The Cafeteria..great brekkie and usually filled with cute Montreal girls. I like the Le Biftek (sic) for beers in the roll up window, people watching...same area. My buddy used to live around that area so I am fairly familiar with that neighborhood as we more often than not stayed local for eating and drinking. Have a good time. I will gladly pay you for a super sized can of 50.

There's was a "where to go in Montreal" thread at some point. I can't remember who started it, but there was lots of local input.

OK
http://www.schwartzsdeli.com/
Schwartz's on St. Laurent the ONLY place for smoked meat. East side just a bit below Deluth. Every human being over the age of 4 knows where it is. The world's most famous deli. Eat-in....you never know who might be there--- steeped in history. You can ask for lean or fatty meat. You CAN buy a whole brisket to bring home if you want.

St Viateur Bagel.
http://www.stviateurbagel.com
Go there after drinking til closing...... buy a dozen fresh from the oven. dip in cream cheese add lox (if you like) mmmmmmm soaks up the juice real nice. Works for breakie too.

Villa Du Souvlaki
Corner of Prud' Homme and Sherbrooke 1 block east of Autoroute Décarie (Decarie Expressway)
Where Westmount and NDG meet...almost.
awesome

hmm as for Poutine.... kinda hit and miss. They should be baked to melt the cheese add gravy and serve. Nobody bakes them here...philistines. Ask around town .... loads of places as it's just so damned easy to to do right.

Lower St. Laurent....(below St Catherine's) Montreal Pool Room
http://www.toutmontreal.com/cgi-bin/...m,*restaurants

Or LaFleurs... a chain of places I ALWAYS visit for Steamies and fries... EVERY TIME I GO!!! mmmm with cabbage and cayanne...

EAt and drink the city man

I had an awesome brunch at Sala Rosa the last time I was in Montreal. Cool place, and cheap/tasty food.

I wanted to go here just for the name: http://www.fritealors.com/

edit: bahahahahhahahahahahah! "Frite Alors! A Belgian style chain of restaurants operated by Cholestérol Plus inc."

Also: I ****ing love that they've got no-attitude BYO at restaurants in Montreal. We went to this Italian place (just off St. Denis I think) and bought a nice bottle around the corner beforehand. Such a great meal.
