    ahaha, mmmm I just repacked the campy hubs on the Rossin.

    The front is buttery, rear is nice but not as good.

    One thing you can do to get your cup and cone hubs feeling minty (as long as they're already in good shape) it is get tooth polish and repack you hubs with it instead of grease, ride like that for 100k or so and the bearing surfaces will be like mirrors.

    Grease 'em up and your good to go.

    Kaibot ... standin' up to the man. Word, props et al.

    found it. Ronin glad it runs nice, super that it's holding a rider up, that's when Campy stuff is happiest. Did Keith have to do anything to it?

    CM update: I will be at home with my youngest this evening laughing our asses off watching 'Benchwarmers' as her older sister, my now teenaged daughter , goes out with her gf's and her mom.

    Have fun with it tonight.
    I LOVE the tooth paste idea, we used to use crest in the Army to shine brass, and yes i HAVE cleaned large things witha tooth brush.

    Operator, if the rear fender comes up the seat tube and then straight back (moto sytle) it won't be a contributor to drag and it will keep the stripe off. I've been DIY'ing fenders for years. AS for the front well you can add a down tube version but it won't give you all the protection a full frontal fender will give you. You can exfoliate as you ride.

    It depends on how your comedy gene is structured. I love all forms of comedy (I love stupid goofy physical humour)..I caught a bit of it last night and it was making me laugh. If you think less of me then *pokes you in both eyes at the same time Stooges Style* nuk nuk nuk woo woo woo woo

    We made it! Not much time to write (gotta shower/change/eat/abuse recreational drugs), but all is well. I've got the most horrifying roadie tan lines now and Wes' Rabobank cap has slowly rotted off his head over the course of the week. More stories next week.

    Oh, last I heard $660000 has been raised. Woot.

    Wtf!?

    Man killed in bizarre hit-run

    A woman has been arrested after a 22-year-old pedestrian was killed when a car knocked him over the side of a bridge in Etobicoke...

    The driver stopped for a moment, looked back in the victim’s direction and drove north on Islington Ave., police said.
    What's wrong with people these days?

    I hope she gets at least 10 years!

    Well done guys. We'll have to get together at some point so as to regale us with tales of the trip.

    Off topic... does anyone have an M8 x 1.25 die and handle I could borrow? I've tried to locate one at Canadian Tire, Home Depot, and Rona with no luck. Ya they sell individual ones, but not metric in this size. I've chopped down a stem and need to extend the bolt threads in order to tighten up the quill.

    "a car heading northbound veered across two lanes of oncoming traffic, mounted the curb and struck the man"

    Sounds pretty intentional to me, maybe it was her husband or ex-husband or cheating lover or whatever. Had he been on a bicycle, he could have dodged the attack.

    I have one. You can get one from Atlas Machinery, Queen West just a smidge west of Simcoe St. The last one I got was $14 I think.

    Hey Steeker, were you riding home along the Esplanade? I think I saw you as I was riding down Berkeley, you were riding through that park that comes out on Parliament.

    It looked like you, but then I saw a mountain bike... but then I remembered that you were on your MTB at CM

    Yes yes not to long, not to short, sign a car, drink some beers that i never heard of (but good)oh & the big question that i answered in various different ways "What are you people doing?"

    Happy to hear the two road warriors made it back safe & didnít get eaten by bears, wolfs, or beavers!
    Cheers
