"meat pylon".. gold.

edit: ps. I think this cheapo Serfas tire is about twice as grippy as my rubino pro. I tried to skip to slow down in front of my building and didn't break loose at all.. surprising. Of course, it's also brand new vs. the well (ab)used rubino.

To let you in (and now all of BFs) on my situation, I'll be moonlighting, working part-time as a sommelier and pursuing an internship at a social marketing agency that deals primarily with NGO's. I'm in my late twenties, socially concious, and non-veg, but eat healthy. I'm a neat and respectful roomie.

I'm looking for something within a close radius to U of T, Queen W, the Annex and Kensington Market (or so my friends have recommended). I'd like to live pretty central, as I'm new to the city. I don't plan on bringing a ton of stuff, as in extra wheels, bike parts, and tools. As for partying, I don't drink very much, and have outgrown the hard-partying messenger scene. I'm also allergic to dogs and cats, and am not too keen on living in a basement apt/room.

I've been surfing around on CL, but I just though I'd post here as it'd be nice to live with people who know what's up. I'm looking for some like minded individuals, male or female, down with bikes and enjoying life. If you know anyone out there looking for a roomie for Oct 1st, please tell them to drop me a line at *****dpendon*** awithacircle ****** gmail**** dotcom

Thanks a ton,
and see you all soon!

Dave
I know I am opening up the " office Dave" comments...but...are you the ex-messenger Dave who threw the Iron Maiden Alleycat at the NACCC'S?

It should have a person pedalling a fixed gear for each of the 4 wheels, then you could do reverse and turn on a dime. 4 wheel drive baby!

If you got in a disagreement the backseat drivers could decide to go the opposite direction, kind of like a vs. pedalling tractor pull

Hi,

I am looking for help in locating a set of (no, seriously) dust caps.
For a campy record high-flange track hub, to be exact.
It's a beauty, spins like a dream, etc., etc., my first campy hub.

I've rummaged through a box of parts here at the local coop, and can probably make something fit with a bit of force, but that would surely anger campy karma gods

Does this mean that all our locks are now vunlerable again a la the kryptonite pen fiasco? Guess we have to buy $125 Abloy padlocks for our krypto chains now. Just great.

I think the new disc style locks are not venerable to the bump key attack. No pins.

Disc locks are immune to bump keys. They are one of the greatest inventions ever though. I don't know what highschool would have been like without "full access"

I'm not sure that there was anything at my high school that I didn't have access to, that I would have wanted to have had access to. Unless I was into stealing stuff of course... Are we going to start seeing businesses that lock up their doors with a new style U lock between the door handles?

Oh for me in high school it was the roof, the lighting rigs over the stage where we used to play poker and euchre, student council lounge with a pullout bed and being able to pull off good pranks.

I mean its not like I was learning anything...

People still coming out to CM if the rain lets up?

Well, from what I've seen and read, $600 seems to be the running for a decent room in a decent, non-basement flat. But any cheaper, in a decent place I'd be alright with. I'll be visiting TO from sept 3-5 to check out apts and jobs.

Yes, I was the organizer of the NACCC 04 Hvy Mtl alleycat. Hope those of you who rode it, loved it.
As for framebuilding, after a feverish stint over the past spring/summer, I'm shelving it for the time being. I'm putting my setup in storage until a later date, when I can set it up in a space in Toronto.

Thanks Crew,

Dave
