*sigh* English man english. Geekinese is not a language, nor a protocol.
Sorry OP, purposefully mis-spelled words make me crazy. You find a couch? You can always catch a nap at the bus station..
Should be good weather though. You simply won't ride up in the middle of the night?

Couple questions. Any ChinaTown crawlers know where I might look for a USB cable for my new Motorola V551?
I have the control software already *cough Limewire* and just need the cable....it's a new connector, not the compact camera connection like the previous generation of Motorolas...smarty bastards ) 80 bones for cable and software.

AND: When I was young (20's) there was nothing I wanted to do more than run the TDF. Are any of you entertaining the idea of the Race to Replace and heading down to the speedway and giving it a kick? Even just to roll alongside the team(any pro team) would be a thrill...or is that just me?

You can yes YOU sign for for a try-out to be the next signed rider on the Discovery team.
http://team.discovery.com/racetorepl...toreplace.html
https://racetoreplace.imsboxoffice.c...alidation.aspx

***edit**** from the site

Want to Race With Team Discovery?
You Can Ride With The Team!
Here's your chance to enter the Race To Replace Lance Armstrong...and to ride as a member of the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team!
Winners in each of eight brackets!
Awards ceremony with Lance Armstrong!
The cyclist with best overall time earns a slot on the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team at the US Pro Championships in Greenville, SC on September 1, 2006, receives an official Trek Team bike, and more!.
Are you up for the challenge? Are you ready for fun? All you need to do is register for the Race To Replace and compete in a 10 lap/25 mile race against the clock on Saturday, August 12, 2006 at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Register now!
Cyclists are required to provide their own bike and protective helmet. The race starts early, please see Official Contest Rules.

Back in my rub shoulders with the pros days, I would have ridden to Indianapolis for a chance like this.

also ...check out the web'd ads some of them are hilarious!!!!

Operator...yea totally proprietary. Right beside the charger connection 14 contact points...they got smart as many folks were using digital camera cables. I'll get a pic up later...let's see if the site has a pic....

Of course Rogers won;t sell the cable all by it's lonesome, Motorola does though, so I'm thinkin' it HAS to be for sale somewhere in Chinatown.

40km time trial? Somebody is going to show up in a skinsuit on a Cerverlo P3 TT bike and seriously own everyone.

Bets on this guy:

I keep imagining all the frat boys (& various other mouth breathers) at the NIN show when Peaches plays and laughing to myself. I hope she plays "shake yer dix", although I won't be there to witness it unfortunately.

</offtopic>

ps. speaking of cervelo, I finally remembered what kind of bike it was that I see Mr. TreeTrunkLegs riding downtown sometimes. I kept thinking it's a cervelo, but it's an Aquila.
