Gah, I didn't believe there were so many hills in Toronto proper; I biked down Warden across Finch and then down Yonge.

Nice, thanks for the info. Beautiful bike, btw.

Hey, do you guys sell a fair amount of bmx stuff at C.S.? I've been sending all my mountain/bmx inquiries your way but I suppose I should see if you actually sell anything.

Great tips, I'll head out tomorrow morning and pick up my ferry ticket. I think I'm just going to go out and have some fun, nevermind trying to do "well." Maybe I'll see one of the messers who come into Cycle Therapy and just drag my ass behind them for the race.

Was just looking at the bike (steeker flickr) very nice, there was a local shop selling them on ebay not long ago when i was shopping but cavernmech kind of scared me off with the steepness thing .Nice build up looks like it would be fun to ride.

yeah, steep is purty alright, but I'm not convinced a steep track bike would be a daily commuter for me. I've got to o many snakebite flats slamming potholes on my route. Not always an option to dodge 'em when you're sharing the road with tandems and SUV drivers channeling the ghost of Gilles Villeneuve.

Kai, definitely let us know about BMX stock. I need to build up the Raleigh 20 frame I have on my kitchen floor.

Okay you monkeys. We have two of our own, eyefloater and somnabulent doing the Friends for Life ride. I just took a spin through both the pledge pages and I've yet to see much evidence of any support from folks here.

I know not everyone is flush but every little bit helps. I dropped $100 bones each, mostly cause eyefloater promised to clean my Ciocc with a toothbrush for a month, but I challenge everyone here to drop $20 or more on these guys. Split it between them or just empty your pockets and give what you can. Even the price of a beer will help, like you really need it you chubby walrus. Apart from being able to hold it over their heads for the rest of their lives, you're supporting a good cause. Chances are someone you know or you yourself may be influenced by the effects of this deadly disease.

So pony up, buttercup. For the half the price of a new jersey, a couple of beers, or a massage (sans happy ending) from operator, you can make a difference, feel good about yourself, and know these boys are going to earn every red cent as they gftg.

Do it. You know you want to...

I'm not above doing stupid **** for money, so keep that in mind.
