    Maybe it's the fixed gear. I think a lot of riders assume you are young disrespectful hooligans because of the bike.

    And they may be right....punks.

    Not at all like you or me now darkmother? Choir Boys we are.
    Has fixed gear taken the bad 'tude from messers, or is a fixie automatically assumed to be a messengers' ride?

    yeah, I suppose disrespectful hooligans have the misfortune of being disrespected by everyone else even when they are minding their own business. One fo the guys we were pacing with for a while was friendly though and impressed that we were on fixies. And about a thousand people asked if we were alright when rob was fixing his flat. So I guess we shouldn't let a few people with last weeks chamois still up their bum ruin our fun.

    Go to Cycle Therapy and purchase a copy of the book "The Art of Wheelbuilding" by Gert Shraener. It shows you everything you need to know and then some. By far the best wheel building book.

    veteran_youth is coming to meet me at my place in half an hour and we are going to ride. If any of you would like to join, PM me for a cell phone number within the next 30 minutes. Vast apologies to you all for the short notice. Also- giant props for Keith (cavernmech), from whom I picked up a giant load of bike gear today. Hurray wheels!

    Okay folks, Wes is over the hump and Mike's nearly there (although I hate to think how long he's going to have to scrub toilets at work). He needs $565 to be in the clear. I'll put up another $50. People, dig deep and help the Eyefloater over the hump too. Yes I know he kinda looks like a monkey (especially in the pre-crash pic) and pretends to have fangs with nacho chips which is weird and disturbing, but he is a pretty nice guy (even if he doesn't know how much anything costs at his shop - I mean anything, try it some day) and he's going to do his all on the Toronto Montreal ride.

    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...
