I think i'm going to put a rack and some panniers to carry some beers. I still have my super sturdy one from my full fendered days.

Sittin' up straight to shot gun beers while in the group would cause a little chaos.
Lighting a spliff could cause a rucus as well. Don't forget stopping for ice every once and a while.

I dunno, a lot of the guys that do the donut ride are pretty damn fast, I've heard that occasionally Michael Barry from team Discovery comes out and rides with them.

Dede Demet-Barry...Mike's wife and an accomplished international racer in her own right.. also goes out on the ride when they are in town. Most of the elite Ontario roadies who live in town also go out regularly. Those guys aren't the ******s tho. I am confident the average "I am so much better than you " rider's/******s are not in the fast group.

Oh man, If you've never been to Bicycle Specialties, you gotta go.

Sooooo many pretty things to look at, and old wooden drawers filled with all sorts of goodies, such as Record groupsets.

Beautiful old track bikes, mmmmm, I wanna go back this week with my camera and take some pics.

Okay guys. This thread is done. Nothing to see here. We are the biggest thread in the forums, so whatever it was that we were out there trying to prove, its been proven! Everyone please move over to our new home because this one is clearly too cluttered!

cluttered? i usually only check out the first page of forums i browse, and usually only the last page-or-so of threads i am interested in...any new t.o. thread will just be a reincarnation of the same.

If I have time I'll swap out the fork from my IRO to the geared bike, otherwise I have no ride.

I don't know how fast you can be with a stick in your front spokes.
