Yesterday evening I was riding to Yoga class with my girlfriend. She got caught behind me at bloor so I waited on the south side and when she passed me I hopped back on the pedals and tried to start going. But I ground to a halt when my toe got caught on my fender and then my fender bent and touched the tire and then the tire sucked in the fender bending the metal fictures and plastic part. I thought I was going to have to walk the bike but I managed to pry it out enough to ride to yoga and then to work today. Mighty annoying! If I didn't have a tiny 10mm box wrench on my multi tool I would have been screwed (LOL!!!!) I've also ripped my shorts several times on my fenders... its those damn metal spikes that shoot out of them but I didn't want to cut them down in case I wanted to swap them over to some other bike. But now its messed anyways! So are my shorts!

Well I'm just about ready to flip a coin here. What do your guts say? Because god knows I don't have any! I suppose the novelty of having my mum give me pedals and cycling shoes soon after my birthday might be nice. I wish this was standardized or something. I hate gambling with anything except my life or future!

I wrote a random decision maker program for tough decisions like that Shiznaz. You ask it a yes or no question and it tells you the answer.

I plan to use tomorrow's CM as a personal birthday parade, so anyone that wants to come out and grab a few drinks afterwards should probably do so.

My brother picked up Baron Munchausen this weekend...

I really like the Terry Gilliam movies, especially Time Bandits.

I love fenders and nearly bought one of those Mercier TTs on eBay specifically because the frame has eyelets on the fork and rear stays for fenders. A winter-bike without fenders is useless to me. I have a snap-on fender on the GT and it is fine but I really think a bike looks great with full fenders.
