    did anyone attend any of the alley cat events this weekend for Helloween?

    like an idiot I completely forgot about it.... I'd kind of like to see photos of whom and where they raced

    I was at Magpie on Friday night after CM for food and drinks. Seemed like a good vibe to me, but unfortunately one of my friends didn't agree. So we wound up going up the street for some desert before much started. Although I think they were doing some time trials outside, but I was too busy being warm and drinking beer.

    jet-san, did you pick up anything at the bike auction? ...i couldn't make it.. got stuck at work.

    work stucks.
    No, I didn't make it either. Reading the auction listing, it said that the bikes would be sold in lots of 10....I already have 3 bikes, 2 frames and about 6 wheels sitting in my apartment, the last thing I need is another 10, I wouldn't be able to get in the door!

    that's brutal. i can't imagine what the family is going through... i picked up a blinky light for my bike. i know how cool it looks but i'll do whatever it takes to make drivers see me. i tend to rush when i'm on the bike as well.. have to slow it down!

    speaking about kensington.. i was biking around the park on my way to buy groceries when someone from the darkness of the park yells "HEY A FIXIE!!" ..so not knowing who the hell it is, i just wave.. then some girl yells "IS HE HOT???" or maybe she said "is IT hot". hey, i know my bike is hotter than i am. no jealousy there.

    Screw the bracket - clip it onto your bag. Mine clips on a loop of fabric that attaches one of the buckles to the rest of the bag. The light's not going anywhere and I can turn it on / off while I'm riding easily.

    On the topic of checking peoples' bikes out ... ya, I do that all the time. I'm a dirty perv when it comes to leering at hot bikes on the street.

    actually, my rear blinky (one of those mini $3 ones from mec) is done exactly like that! any tips for a front light? don't even start me on the front bracket thing. i hate it.. i've got 3ttt drops and the damn thing doesn't tighten all the way. i thought about making something out of velcro that i can lash the light onto the bar.

    i'll try to make the vigil if i can manage to unshackle myself from work.

    Damn, that blows. I'm going to be there unless it rains in the morning.

    Goki can't you just shim the bracket to make it fit?

    Friday, November 25th (7:30pm) @ Bloor Cinema:

    STILL WE RIDE
    Still We Ride is an action-packed glimpse into a shocking
    showdown between the monthly Critical Mass bike
    ride and police in New York City. On Friday August 27,
    2004 in New York City, just days before the start of the
    Republican National Convention, 264 people were
    arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and 'parading
    without a permit' during the monthly bicycle celebration,
    Critical Mass. The ritual began in 1992 in San
    Francisco and has since spread around the world to over
    300 cities. The August crackdown in NYC was the
    beginning of an ongoing effort to suppress free assembly
    for group rides.The monthly cycle of arrests and bicycle
    seizures has forced the bike community into a legal battle
    with the city and politicized the very act of riding a
    bike. Co-director, Andrew Lynn, will be on hand to
    present this 37-minute documentary along with a collection
    of short bike videos from around the world. Q &
    A welcome. In a brief talk and slide presentation,
    Andrew will provide a context for the documentary by
    highlighting terminology, expanding on related events,
    and providing the audience updated information about
    ongoing court cases and the continuation of monthly
    arrests. Though the tactics of the NYPD against Critical
    Mass might seem like a somewhat isolated and case of
    police harassment of bicyclists, it has far-reaching implications.
    Still We Ride just might be a wake-up call to
    those who still believe we are living in a free society.
    Information on the campaigns to stop the arrests will be
    available. NYC's cycling community hopes that people
    can report back to their own networks and communities
    to build cyclist solidarity around these issues. You can
    find more info at the Still We Ride website:
    http://www.stillweridethemovie.com. November 25

    I'll be there w/ some people from work.

    Hey all... first post in this thread, and i wanted to know what the best bike stores in toronto are for fixed gear stuff. I'm going to school in ottawa and am coming back to toronto to celebrate my birthday with family and was hoping to get some shopping done with those sweet sweet b-day cheques :-)... I'm looking right now for a cheap set of bullhorns, brakelevers for said bars, and from there who knows... where ever upgradeitis might lead ;-)

    I should be back in the city for the summer months and would love to come out for some rides, there aren't too many people riding fixed in ottawa, and i'm sure i could learn a lot from you guys...

    I just got home from the ride - glad to see so many people out. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet anyone beforehand, but my rear wheel blew up on the way there and I have to do an impromptu mechanics time trial just to make it on time.

    cavit8, I remember your jersey, but didn't recognize you at the time - I met up w/ operator though on his way to smart kid school. That Bianchi of his was giving me love eyes all the way down Queen St.

    I saw your bike locked up outside of Cycle Thearapy last Saturday..... I'm sure of it, you have sort of upside down cruiser bars right??

    glad to see all the support for ryan.
    i managed to escape work and got to nathan philips at around 630pm..and no one was there. but sure enough at queen and john, was the tail end slowwwwwwwly making it's way to the gladstone. i didn't see anyone because i was bringing up the rear for the entire ride. saw some really nice cruisers/beaters.
    how late did everyone stay? it was 730pm and cyclists were still hanging around queen/dufferin. did anything happen after that?

    Those are about the only shops I know that deal to extent with fixed/ss. Surreal shopping experience would include Parts Unknown. You never know what you'll find there.
