ps. I think OLN coverage starts at 8:30, not 8:00. Makes it a little more difficult to catch any action before work if you start at 9:00. I could go in as late as 9:30 (Summer hours), but I'm only seeing 1/3 of the coverage that way, so I don't know if I'll bother.

Is it just the rims? How good a price is it? I snagged a set of gold deep v's on eBay for 90$USD shipped, which I figured was a good deal. What size frame do you need?

Yeah just the rims. $90 usd is the going retail from online 'tailers before shipping. I can never find 700c deep v's even on ebay. None that aren't crazy expensive. The 26" versions of the ones I want are like $50 BIN for both rims. :|

Dang mountain bike stuff.

Hey Y'all - Just introducing myself. Somnambulant told me about this place...it's cool.

Presently I reside outside of the city (commence suburban slagging) - but I'm moving [back], [back] I say - to TO (apt hunting tommorow).

I've been riding a fixed for 3 months now, and...well...what the hell was I doing before?

You may spot me around as I'm in the city most days. I ride a Surly with a green CK headset and a Steamwhistle opener where a bottle cage should be :-)

I've started posting on flickr under fisso416...check my pics out.

Welcome. If you're looking for around Aug 1, there's a couple 2 bedrooms opening up in my building (read **Very cheap** although utilities are extra) which is at Dundas and Jones.

I don't slag suburbanites; I pity them their bland and homogenous existence (cue Rush Subdivisions).

Swep242 - Yah I'm on a steamroller - so far so good. I had a crash so some part are newer than others. I don't have anything to compare to...but it's been good. I spend most my time rethinking my componentry if anything.

cavit8 - I'm looking for a (1) bedroom or a bachelor...unless the price is really good ( I like that area). Re: Bland existance - yah! I don't know how to say it any other way...yah! I've been between the burbs and TO most of my life. It's now time for a permanent change.
