hehehe.. yeah, those are the 5500's. And that's a Dell 24" LCD. Both of those are currently hooked up to a 15" Powerbook (open slightly behind the keyboard) and an xbox 360 (right above my head). I have a PS2 and a PC (Athlon 2500 w/ ATI x800) as well, but the PS2 is in the living room and the PC hasn't been hooked up in about a year.

I'm definitely into doing some regular 100k+ rides... probably not fixed though. My fixie is no longer set up for anything remotely long distance.

yea we went passed Coxwell, it isn't closed though they are just doing road work on Eastern in between Woodward Ave. and Coxwell.

We just rode to Eastern/Kingston and Queen and waited at the corner for a few minutes to see if you'd show up.

After that we all decided that we'd head home.

mcmc, shiz, lymbzero and ronin went back along eastern i think.

darkmother and I headed up kingston to woodbine, up woodbine and then parted ways.

sorry for all of these consecutive posts today...

I am just curious how you are running the speakers. just direct with a 1/8" cable, or something else?

I have an m-audio sonica theater usb sound card, it's real pretty

there will definitely be more! and don't forget, critical mass is only 8 days away.

I vote for another post-CM beers in the park and/or drinks/food someplace.

those are gizmos, I used to run crossbones, but I cored too many on the street sliding down the east side of Mnt. Royal in Mtl., I needed a wider wheel. I can't imagine skating on the marbles they ride on now, but I'd love to try a new school stick just for the ollies and flips, things are my old freestyle sized As you can see I loved tail slap re-entries. There are silky smooth bearings in that going back over 20 years. The front truck is an early version of the indy truck, earlier than the rear truck, I ground it to the axle then broke it doing big burly judos over a car off a kicker one day.

Voilà les machines avec lesquelles les jeunes pistards du Mérignac Vélo Club roulent.
Des cadres GIANT, en aluminium, fourche en carbone, très courts sur l'arrière ce qui donne une grande nervosité et une grande maniabilité. Vraiment, quand on monte dessus une fois, on ne veut plus en changer!




Nice bikes!
