    I left around that 7:30. It was a pretty powerful thing. I'm still a little bent out of shape.

    Sorry I couldn't make it out last night guys. I had to get a bunch of work done for one of my freelance clients. Hope things went well.

    Damn.. the time change is killing me. I'm looking out the window right now admiring how sunny it is, and itching to go for a ride, but by the time I get off work I need to put my lights on. Especially after what happened last week I'm a little wary of going for a hard ride in the dark AND during rush-hour. :S

    That's some funny ****..

    Oh, and I had a guy on a red Cervélo fixie talk to me (actually complain about Bloor St traffic) on my way home from work today. I like friendly fixies. He appeared to be running a retardly high gear though. His rear cog was TINY. I kept losing him (while spinning madly) and catching him again at red-lights.

    speaking of friendly fixies.. last summer i was heading home eastbound along queen when i spotted a girl on a fixie. so i struck up a conversation at a red light and noticed she was running no brakes. she says her morning commute to work is usually in heels. same bike. yikes.. couldn't put a make on the bike.. may have been a surly.. it was painted black and the gear wasn't too large (maybe low 70s).. she was ripping up the road though.

    operator: that guy you seemed to know at the halloween CM was wearing cowboy boots on a brakeless clipless-equipped fuji fixie. What's that guy's name anyway? I think I've been introducted twice now. I suck.

    ps. dude, if you're on here, I'm sorry. It's not you, it's me.

    hoorah!
    I met the very first fixed rider (possibly messenger) today!

    I walked into the xbox 360 promotion store today on queen street W. and when I got tired of testing out the new xbox, I saw a beautiful clipless and brakeless red fuji track bike with a black push the envelope top tube protector chained outside of the store. I quicked ran back in and talked to the guy who owned it.
    He was a swell guy and we had a nice chat.
    Just wondering if he's a regular at this forum or if any of you guys know him

    Also, he mentioned that the fuji track bikes could be had for cheap at bikes on wheels.
    Does anyone know if its still cheap there?

    btw, I am now inspired to get my hands on (whether building or buying a complete) a fixed bike before spring comes!

    at the moment i'm just a fixed-bike wannabie/poseur, help me realize my dreams!

    That's actually pretty funny since I went to the "xbox 360 experience" this week and I too saw a red fuji track outside locked up when I went in. There was an obvious cycliest in there and we sorta "noticed each other across the room", but I didn't talk to him. I wonder if it was the same guy.

    Yeah, I think so! I can't really remember too well though. I was too busy oggling the games.

    hmm.. i think my watch is about a day fast. i was in kensington the entire afternoon on saturday. totally gorgeous weather. drank too much coffee and couldn't find a bathroom so i just sat around some more. went to parts unknown for a winter beater (couldn't decide on anything) and bikes on wheels just to loiter. they had a single kypto mini there. there's a thread going on about a new onguard mini that's identical in size and looks to the krpyto at probably half the cost. anyhow.. t'was a nice day.

    heh.. I think Saturday was a better choice for riding. I spent Saturday afternoon at Ikea, and Sunday afternoon assembling my purchases. Thankfulyl I also bought a cordless drill and had my well-used allen bits on hand to throw everything together.
