Update on Parts Unknown. It was open on Saturday and I had a brief chat with George. He says weekdays he's usually around 11-3 and often after 5. He said the guys at the front have, from time to time, blocked the gate when he is actually there.

So still open for biznay. He didn't mention a move. He had a couple of customers so I didn't talk all that much with him.

i had a bit of a revelation as i was putting a new cog on my big ugly pink bike; i realized that you can install and remove cogs without the aid of a chainwhip. i tried the rotafix method and it worked brilliantly. just make sure to put a rag between your frame and the chain to avoid the scratchies. i love when i can find low tech fixes that might come in handy during road-side emergencies. never mind trying to find a 1/8" chainwhip...
anyone else ever tr this?

Yes, and in a pinch use one of your cycling gloves.

Yes only in a pinch. Plan ahead use a chain whip disregard step 4 last sentence. But if stuck a great fix. What gearing are you running on that big boy?

i've never owned a chainwhip; this method works fine for installation and removal. i should add that in my version i DO use a lockring and plenty of grease. i may ride a fixed gear but i'm not crazy. oh and the gearing is 42x16 (but the 42 is pretty worn, i have a 44 in my parts box that i'll most likely replace it with) with 700x37 tires. not sure what gearing works out to with that size rubber.

Oh really? You went "wooooaaaah" just as it happened, so I assumed you saw. It was when we were cutting through the traffic (that was turning at Mccaul to go around the closed off portion of Queen in front of the CityTV building) before we went in through the "closed" section behind that streetcar. That's a streetcar junction, so it's got the crazy mess of street car tracks, and when I was cutting between two cars I slipped all over the place on the tracks. I'm totally astonished I didn't go down, actually.

Yes, I woahed the entire situation (streetcar tracks, traffic lock-up, pedestrians everywhere, barriers closing the road). Nice recovery.

Aaand, late for work (as usual). *shizooom* (sorry for the copyright infringement, Shiznaz)
