Thanks for the tires, Mike. Do you guys have a coffee machine on the premises?

That's an interesting question.

Yes, but it's slightly mold-ridden (can something be slightly "ridden"?) ... just down the street is Tango though, and they're great.

mmmm.... Tango. mmmmm..... exceptionally huge Nanaimo bars .....

Mike, I may be a bit bringing that Brodie in. It seems I've managed to lose the brake cable pinch bolt for the front caliper. I may have something in my box of fun, but if not, I'll need to find someone who has Hayes mechanical parts. Otherwise, I should be in on Wednesday.

Anyone who deals with OGC (Outdoor Gear Canada) can order in Hayes stuff.

As it turns out, it's identical to a derailleur pinch bolt, so I swiped one off an xt derailleur I had lying around. I can replace that at my leisure. I'll add a few odds and ends to pretty it up a bit and bring it in on Wednesday.

Okay, I've got a bit of a tall order here:

The gf got me an awesome Francaise des Jeux long sleeve jersey ... problem is, it's a size or so too big for me. Does anyone know someone who could actually take in a jersey and not mangle it completely? Fabric like this is pretty weird, and there's a lot of different panels on the jersey. Honestly, I don't know how much I'll wear this thing since it's pretty baggy right now, but I'll definitely pay to have it fixed up a bit.

Also: I just fired an email off to Mike at Forest City about getting us in next Saturday (Sep 23rd). That's the date of their pre-scheduled track combo (2/3) classes, so hopefully it won't be an issue to get us in there. Anyone who's interested, please email me your confirmation at >wes AT somnambulant D0T net< (this includes anyone who has already "confirmed" with me offline, please!). Keith is available with his van again (Thanks Keith!), so we can get a large size group out again!

Rode with southbound boroSS today going north on Yonge. I thought I recognized him, but he in fact recognized me first so we bombed down Yonge at York Mills and laboured up it. We departed at Food Basics at around Cummer, since I was on my way back home to visit my folks. I managed to make it on 4 bananas (33 cents/lb!) and a gatarade.

Got a reply from Mike @ Forest City. We still need to confirm solid numbers.. so if you can go, EMAIL me (wes@somnambulant.net) and let me know if you're a firm YES or a MAYBE.
