I'm sure you can borrow someone's lights-if you are a real masochist I'll let you use mine...I take no responsibility for your safety though-probably better to ride with a penlight clenched between your teeth.

If any of you are looking for light systems I will keep my eye out for end of season closeouts from my suppliers. I got my 20 watt system (more than sufficient for night riding) for $50 on closeout last year. If I come across anything I will post up.

Please do Keith I've been looking for a good lighting system to rig to a street luge for awhile. Snake Road in Burlington is heat during the day and unlit at night which is so unfortunate, its one of the nicest hills around Toronto.

I'm running the Topeak wedge which Cavern has. It's nice and durable, only wished it was waterproof.

Laphroig? DOH! I will bring the Laphroig and the Dalwhinnie...you bring the Cellar 13 and A'bunadh..Deal?
Also I have the lock you won in the raffle...its a beast...especially handy in these sad times of rampant bike theft.
Also Jacques got his bike back so if you see any Pista riders out there leave em alone.
