Haha no, just my bianchi road bike. I have enough funds to build up a fixed over the winter - evaluating options now (looking for a frame actually nothing too $ to use as commuter/utility bike).

OOh 54.
Not sure if I want to do a conversion or a build up from a track frame. Been trolling bike shops and CL for some frames. But CL sucks.

edit: nevermind

Hey guys. Toronto marathon is asking for bike marshal volunteers for this Sundays marathon.

There's a meeting at the Holiday Inn on Thursday at 6:30 (don't know which room yet) for all those interested.

There is a spring and fall bike show. The spring bike show is all full priced new stuff the bike shops and companies want to flog off to suckers. The fall bike show is when all the shops and companies try to get rid of their old stock at rock bottom prices. Anyways, its on saturday. I'll be going nice and early unless I end up going camping that weekend. If that happens I'd be extremely grateful if someone could pick me up a set up eggbeaters, a rear blinkie light and some track handlebars.

Anybody interested in meeting for a coffee beforehand (maybe around 9:15?) and then heading over? Maybe at the coffee spot at Augusta & Baldwin?

I was thinking about riding if the weather doesn't suck. Last year I drove and found paying $10 for parking inconvinient. So, unless someone wants to carpool and go in on parking with me, I think I'll be riding. What was inconvinient about it?

And yeah, the coffee place is in Kensington Market right at the corner of Baldwin/Augusta. My fav. coffee joint in Toronto (so far) for sheer brew quality..

If your confortable in chaining your bike in a bike rack, then its okay, but if not then you have to bring your bike inside the place and the security Guards won't let you in with a bike, and if you have a nice bike you don't want to chain your bike outside. Right. I will be riding the good old reliable TTC

that's a really good point. i won't have piece of mind browsing for stuff knowing my bike's up at the cne. i rode the rocket last year and it wasn't too bad. you'd think they'd at least have bike attendants/valets at a bike event....

All you have to do is ride around and report anything that happens - godzilla attacks, earthquakes, tsunamis or any other emergency related to the runners. (nothing happened last year).

Update: The meeting is at 7pm at the Holiday Inn on King st. on the 2nd floor (King and Peter, 2blocks east of spadina).

I'll also come on Saturday for the bike show - when/where you guys meeting up? Does anyone live really close to the show and we can all just stash our bikes there and walk to the show itself?

Edit: Hey shiznaz did you know UT has this bike repair thing at the OISE. They have a set of parktools you can use for free.

i work on king between spadina/bathurst. it's not that close but is definitely ttc-able. you guys are more than welcome to stash your bikes at my work. however.. i'm not sure if i'll be riding down since i have to replace my front wheel which i haven't even taken to the shop yet. if i can't ride, i'll most likely take the ttc all the way down.
