Maybe I'll get a pair of new school lo-flange Dura-Ace hubs with a fixed/fixed rear.

I was thinking just a small logo patch that says "BikeForums" maybe "BikeForums FTW!" Not that hot on the T-Shirt idea. Jersey yeah.

One other sweet feature about the new Dura-Ace is the inner hub locknuts.....they are freakin HUGE!! The rear one is like the size of a quarter. What this means is far less chewing of the fork and track ends.

Cool, cool...

So Shimano makes a fixed/fixed rear Dura-Ace correct?

ride from bar to bar between matches! if we can collect enough hooligans along the way, we might even be able to start a riot outside of cavern.

You're not gonna put the Toronto Fixed Group's heads on the ladies are you?

i'm trying peercast at work on my mac right now and it might take a bit of fiddling to get it to work. channels aren't preloaded like they are in tuvplayer. click the "yellow pages" tab and search for CCTV1, CCTV5 and probably Shanghai Sports. these 3 channels seem to be showing all the games live. i've had luck with cctv1 and 5.

i was really close to ordering satellite or cable or some other crap for a month just to watch the games

It's not the worst thing you could do. for years i ordered cable every july and cancelled it in august just to watch the TdF.

I would be much more in to bike forums jerseys rather than t-shirts... the last thing I need is another cotton t-shirt... plus we would have an excuse to wear matching jerseys. Anyways, my idea I just thought of for the design... it seems everybody and their dog has thought about using a cog, and its become pretty clicheed. So why not combine it with another overused cliche (albeit still cool) image: Hokusai's Great Wave. I can't really portray it in paintbrush at work, but what I envision would be a cog unrolling into a curl like a wave. You could also incorporate other things like a chain to accentuate the movement, or little cycling dudes trying to escape the cogwave and then the text. Either that or my other idea was just an old school graffiti throw-up tag filling the chain paralellogram shape of a fixed drivetrain. Lets hear some interesting ideas here

this shows all the games and what channels are streaming them:

http://www.boxtobox.co.uk/competitions.php?choice=6

i'm not going to devote any more time to mucking around with peercast at work but people have got it to work.

i think the best bet is to check out omni1 or 2 for those without cable/satellite. they show 2/3 games daily. not bad, but you might miss the match you really want to watch.
