    if you want a quick and dirty way to attach bottle cages to your frame you can always use some $0.25 hose clamps from canadian tire.

    I thought about that, but man it looks ugly. The other stupid idea I had was drilling holes on the downtube, but I think that's darwin award right there.

    Edit: Is there an easy way of getting fork race off fork without the fancy park tool? Add: This is not a destructive removal of said race and the fork is not disposable.

    it doesn't look that bad if you use smaller ones and tiny screws. i've done it on a frame with no braze ons and it seemed meet my aesthetic scrutiny...

    Especially when you come back drunk, stoned and pass out within 10min.

    with all our talk of Oakleys yesterday I found this....

    I want to get one of these shields so I can see if I can adapt it for my full face Helmet. I figure i should be able to Dremel the material if necessary.

    You guys should definitely come out. You can always split at some point. Is it possible to convince the lady to come out too? Or is that what you're trying to do?

    I'd love to have some sort of shield .... especially for winter riding. Wanted one since I got the helmet, I used ski goggles last winter, worked ok but too hot at times. I don't actually want the shield plastered up against my eyes.
    hmmm Oakley Hockey Visors.

    The FB shield is like 40 bucks US....
    I'll poke around and try to find some canadian retailer with either, CCM distributes the hockey visior.
    I like the look of the Aviator Hockey. We'll see as good optically correct ski/snowbaord goggles are a fortune anyway and then I get fogging issues sometimes.
