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.
i will for sure. first step is getting it repainted. orange frame does not a happy andrew make.
finally went to cavern yesterday. nice meeting you keith (i was the dude with the dog).
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.

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.
aki: let us know when you get something built! (or if you need help with anything)
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.
Welp, I am off to the cottage (my friends, I am way too poor for a cottage) until Sunday night...bikeless for 4 days! Maybe she has an old beater I can wheel around on, show those Muskoka'ers how we do it in Toronto Ciao, have a great weekend guys.
