However, you should avoid American and European coins at all costs as they contain aluminum based mind control circuitry. Canadian coins are free of this threat mainly due to the Canadian government's choice of neglecting psychotronic research in favor of research into giant robotics.

All of these origami hats also work finely for tinfoil hats.

Now I'm feeling paranoid about parking at U of T. I try to park next to the best bike available, but have gotten sloppy about using my seat cable and cable for the front wheel. Back to basics. I'd hate to have my....ermmm... vintage Colnago track bike stolen.

All this recent bike theft has me diabolically thinking. Perhaps a street justice sting is in order? I will put up the bait...A few of us can wait, circling the block, until the unwitting thief makes his move. Gonna be terribly uncomfortable being locked to a bike ring, bleeding profusely. "Perhaps a demonstration of yer skill at breaking bike rings is in order eh scumbag?" I figure do this to 2 or 3 of em and the word will spread....maybe think twice before stealing someones pride and joy?

I'd be def in for that, I just sit around campus looking at hot girls^H^H^H^H^H books all day anyways. Like that bait-car **** they pull in Vancouver, except in Toronto and without the cars.

See where these people take these bikes...

There are 2 ways of approaching the situation.
Firstly is the street style intervention. Intimidation and perhaps mild violence. The aforementioned "Kryptonite Necklace TM" The end result hopefully being that bikes will cease to be seen as an easy score and that retribution is harsh.
Secondly is the more complicated mission of trying to permit the theft and follow the perp....Mike Hammer Style! What I don't like about this plan is that the risk, however slight, of the guy making off with the bike outweighs the likelyhood of actually finding a bike chopshop...for lack of a better term. Also the place this guy leads us to may not be a place where we all want to tread. Not saying it couldn't be done with success, but would require more bodies and planning. I am down for either.

I vote the dented IRO as the bait bike.

I also vote stakeout/beatdown action.

Edit: Actually, I'd like to vote tailing to the chopshop action, but I think the logisitcs of that are too difficult.

I'm all for this or any other plan of intervention...

I can make a quick phone call to my loyal Triads, the "Fukienese Dragons", to bring on the big hurt to the perps...

See, that's the nice thing about asians - you can always rely on them to get a good crew together for some impromptu gang warfare.

Uh so, is there a webpage detailing how to measure out chainline exactly? I'm picking up a set of ir0 cranks soon so I want to get the correct bb for dead on chainline.
