    Offhoff, cavernmech suggested that the non track 1 guys could go earlier than us and do the track 1 and we'll come in sligthly later to do track 2/3 with them.

    Or they could do track 1 while we're flying around the track. Yup.

    Yeah if the guys at the velodrome are cool with that I will definately ask what the options are when I e-mail/phone them. I'm just warning that it *might* not be possible. if it is I will post such and if anyone wants to organize another day for more people to do track 1 that'd be awesome. I'm simply trying to get all the training done so I can start racing.

    I've been told by several sources that Saris sells roof racks... am I just blind or are they not on the website?

    My friends mountain bike was stolen today.

    It is a black and silver Gary Fisher Marlin, I'm pretty sure it's all stock, umm not sure of the actual size of the frame but it was pretty small.

    He's gonna check out Igor's and Uncle Jakes or whatever it's called (anyone know the address?).

    so hopefully it turns up at one of those places.

    Keep an eye out for it everyone.

    looks like this:

    agreed about cheap costs and desired atmosphere. i was thinking that ematei (from the pic) looks fancy for most `izakayas`. how does that other place, "izakaya", compare?

    Oh ****e, looks like as of this week Saris no longer makes roof racks (literally, the site has changed VERY recently).

    I cannot find roof racks on your website. Have you stopped selling them?

    We choose to specialize in racks for the rear of the car. However, we do have an inventory of roof rack products available. If you are an existing roof rack customer and need replacement parts, we have them available. If you need to change parts to accomodate a new car, we do offer an upgrade program.
    The roof rack is just "Saris load bars" ... there's a bunch of accessories for it.

    Jet Sanchez: Could you detail (in great detail) the process you used to strip the frame down to bare metal? I bought some gel stripper at Home Depot, eagerly awaiting bb tool so I can start stripping.

    I don't know addreses for those bums, but Igors as you know is south side of queen across from the east side of the park on the west side (hehe) and Uncle Joke is on the east side of spadina, below college but above dundas I think.

    Get yourself some proper gloves, and what ever you do, don't get that crap on your skin. That stuff is like napalm. I'd slather it on the frame, and let it sit for ~1 hr or more. The paint will start to bubble, then you can just wipe it off with steel wool. IIRC, I had to apply the stripper maybe 3 times to get all the paint off.

    The offer is still open. Its just that between mtn racing...velodrome trips and plain weekend business/drunkeness, has not permitted me the time to think about it. I did get a chance to test ride a Misfits Cycles single speed 29er at the 24 hour. It was really sweet. I think he quoted me retail price of $450 frame and fork. It was an alu bike tho. There was a guy racing there on a 29er single speed made by Jones Cycle. It was a full ti frame and fork done in a wicked cruiser bike style. All curved tubing with a double leg fork. It was just about the sweetest looking bike I have seen in a long time.

    No, you didn't (I can see inside your miiind). It used to have a different search feature ... you could pick manufacturer models from the list. I'm not a car guy here, there's no way I could track some of this stuff down otherwise.

    Isn't it tho. I had a real up close look at this bike. It is crawling with excellent craftsmanship. I got to spin around the expo area on it. While about 10 sizes too small it was one sweet ride. All it would take to get one is $4500 for the frame and fork and 4 years to wait! Thats right.....4 YEAR waiting list.

    Andrew Meamura aka Maki or here on bikeforums Veteran Youth had the 4th fastest night lap out of everybody and the 9th fastest day lap. And Ted, who i think cavernmech only knows also got a top ten lap time.

    I haven't heard much from the others on how the race went since most of them are catching up on sleep.
    I have been meaning to ask you and Mitch if you are any relation to Greg Kaiser? I know you live in the beaches and thought it might not be a coincidence.
