I thought Kona always had a SS bike in their line-up. It used to be called the Kona Unit.

The two bedrooms are $710 with parking, $680 without. Utilities are extra; rented hot water tank, electric base board heaters, so power bills can be high in the winter.

It is a great area. Minutes to little India or Chinatown, good coffee at the Tango Palace, my life is complete.

A new beast in the east? Awesome....
sr20det, cavit8 has some tyres.

Did you see that poor bastard yesterday getting hauled in within spitting distance of the line? Cruel, evil and heartless, another typical day at the tour. Keith....you know it was like the skies cleared after I stopped off at your place. Thank-yeas again, very nice it was. Next time I reciprocate.

I don't think it's bland. I kinda like it as a place to live as opposed to a place to crash when I was in my twenties. I love how I can walk to anything I need here. More and more good fooderies are opening all the time. Have you checked out the new cheese shoppe at Pape/Queen?

SNAP...I'm likin' that Kona!!!!

Better than learning that ballistic nylon is only bullet proof to a point.

Hmmmmmm....really...... *contemplates apartment hunting vs hook-up from aquaintance* How big is the building? How much do you average on hydro in the winter Been pondering a move to the East side. I have many questions.

With 50m left you could see him do that "F*&K!!!" head motion as the pack rumbled past.

I think Steeker is tugging.

As soon as the flag fell to signal the official start of the stage at 11.48am, two Spanish riders went on the attack. De la Fuente (SDV) and Hernandez (EUS) must not have been considered a threat and they peloton allowed them to build a huge advantage. .....with 20km to go… he was caught by Wegmann on the final climb, but earned the reward of the lead in the climbing classification. The rider in the polka-dot jersey pushed on with a solo effort and, with 10km to go led the peloton by 17”. He was caught with 8km to go. Kessler launched a bold ..... De la Fuente was out with another spaniard until 20k to go .... 208kms leading...madness

Go German rider GO!!!!! no spoilers I was told
McEwan...you never see him in the front gruntin' it out, the line appears and bam, he's there.

ahh.. yeah, I kind of assumed steeker was tugging our chains, but I just wanted to be sure because I hadn't heard about that.

cavernmech: Kessler wasn't one of the original breakaway. Like TJ said, he attacked 6km off the line.

TJ: yeah, you could plainly see him freaking out when he got caught. He couldn't even try to keep up at that point.. he looked like he was totally and completely out of juice.

Wrong forum

I can usually get a good sense of the riders Touring but this year I get nothing. I'm all confused as to who's capable of what. Largely due to not paying attention to the rest of the season.
