I had a little interview with a reporter from Macleans Mag this morning. He is doing an article on fixed gear riding and would like to talk with a couple of fixie riders for the article. P.M. if you want to be involved. K.

Why repaint a frame when you can spend that money on fancy parts? Plus if you don't repaint you end up with an 'ugly' bike that people will want to steal slightly less. And the more slightly less people want to steal your bike, the better!

PS. Keith, Don't they only want to speak to lawyers, doctors and ceo's? (like the lady from New York Times) I am officially a 'banker' but in reality a nearly-22-year-old-working-an-entry-level-facilities-management-job-at-the-bank. haha pretty sweet now that I look at it that way.

I painted my old Miele black and then laid it out in the backyard and put a black blanket on it and let it sit out there in the sun for about 3 days which really baked the paint in. Good luck with it.

ghetto fabulous.

ps. were you riding on Bloor W last night at around 7:00? I saw someone with gold rims (and teeth, presumably) fly by going the opposite direction. I was driving though and there was traffic, so I didn't get a good look. Plus you know, I have zero clue what you look like. In fact, suddenly I'm having doubts as to whether you even live here since I haven't met you.

pps. if I have met you, I appologize.

Hrm, nope on both accounts...I wasn't on Bloor last night (my route is usually Queen West) and I've never been to Jet Fuel either. Is some bastard passing himself off as me again?!?

The only person I've met from here is 32flav when I hooked her up with that Gardin frame; how is that coming anyhow, 32flav? I am anxious to see it

So it seems that Wes, with T-Mobile and Rasmussen, has un-officially won the tour pool...barring a complete collapse by the Pink boys in the next few days, which seems highly unlikely. Joebent had a chance with Cunego and CSC but Cunego is gonna get b1tch slapped by Fothen in the T.T, ruining any hope for him. If you are gonna still come by manana to drop off yer bike I will have a little going away gift, aka "mystery prize", for you at the shop. Congrats. K.

Well my call that Floyd will win still stands but I still don't want him to win (although his comeback pretty much has me on his side now. The French wanted panache and they got steamrolled)

I neglected to make guesses for any of the other classifications but I would have chosen Rasmussen for the polka dots (because he won last year), Boonen for green (world champion) and I don't follow pro cycling enough to make a guess on white (some french dude). T-mobile for the team (becuase I saw how they spent twice as much as any other team before the tour started).

I still want Cadel to take it though, aussies are the best.

Think today qualifies as panache? I sure think so, L'equipe I double dog dare you to print something nasty about Landis now. I bet the drug references are on the presses as we speak.
