Cavern was there earlier today.

Anyone know a place that would have a decent selection of cycling caps? The whole sweat in the eyes thing is getting kinda old

I've got 4 if I include a rusty bmx and a currently-loaned-to-a-friend mountain bike. When I (finally) find a 2-bdrm to move into I'm going to be shopping for some sort of storage solution for the 2nd room. Something wall or ceiling mounted..

You can make a bike rack with no marring of walls of floors with a 4x4, piece of threaded rod, two nuts a washer and some small chunks of wood. Put as many bikes on it as you want if you get creative. I've typically only had two bikes on it. I'll take pictures of mine tonight when I get home.

My chain seems to get tighter after it get wet, which is wierd too. I saw you on Saturday whooping down Spadina after buddy with the muffler trumpet when blatting by you. Nice look.
