I will temporarily look the other way if Johhny Walker Blue is the blend. Shortly thereafter I will mock you for wasting so much $ on a blend.

All I know about scotch is that I generally can't drink blends, and I REALLY shouldn't ride after drinking a bunch of it. Now we are entering the realm of three seasons worth of clothing for one day's riding. Gloves in the morning, chilly ride gear at lunch and 20 degrees for the ride home.

EDIT**** damn those shifters are expensive...I'll check to see if I need this integrate nonsense..... hmm SS here I come?

Op, I'm not on campus on Friday, but can make the run down. I'm heading up to my old workplace (Leslie and Steeles) on Friday morning as the are evidently incapable of operating in my absence. Let me know when you're around and where and I'll bring your new stem.

I didn't think you'd want the Zoom logo on it, so I sprayed some oven cleaner on it to get the logo off. I seem to have overdone it though, as it looked kinda mottled. So I rattle-canned it with some black BBQ paint I had kicking around. It looked great! Until I dropped it and the paint just skimmed off. So I painted it again with some rubberized truck bed liner paint I have. Now it looks amazing! You'll be the envy of all.

If you want to go old school I can give you a Deore thumbshifter that should work well with the 8sp. Rapidfire wise I think an STX is the most affordable decent shifter in 8. XTR is great but overpriced IMHO. If you are goona shell out go for XT...still excellent quality but quite a bit cheaper.

I'm gonna look at my setup and see what can easily switched out. The XTR just looks stupid expensive... how about a ball chain with ring on it? Suicide shifter? As it is, it's the front D shifter that refuses to catch in the chillyness.

Additional shopping..... duct tape, large garbage bags, zip ties and latex gloves and season 4 of CSI on DVD.

"There are 4 lockers located in the parking lot behind the building"

Bicycle lockers are available for $10 (+ GST) per month for a minimum of 4 months.
Payment must be made in person at the East York Civic Centre by debit card, cash, money order or certified cheque.

Shall we have a pool to see which location gets broken into first?.... I know I know, I'm a cynic.
I'm going to check out these locations in the near future, I wanna see these things.

I find all the RF+ shifters do that in the cold-mine do anyway. I think it is the factory lube they have in there gets really thick, and some prawl won't engage. Anyway, I've had some luck with blasting the internals with WD-40....it will degrease the mechanical guts, which may or may not be good long term, but if you are going to ditch the shifter anyway-nothin' to lose.

i can't see why they can't allocate a small area beside parking lot booths exclusively for bikes. you can fit a bunch of bikes into the footprint of a car. if you charge the same rate as the new bike lockers of $10/month, 10 bikes would be 100 bucks/month. the gov't could subsidize it so that it's compartively profitable. i'm sure subsidies would be cheaper than what they're doing now. damn, those guys are sitting in the booths doing nothing anyways. parking lots aren't always full and they'd have to be for another source of income. in japan, this is so rampantly commonplace. they've got old uniformed men patrolling around to check that bike parking has been paid for. bike parking is usually outside of train stations and they're jammed with bikes in the morning. for a country that's so rammed for space, they're still somehow able to set aside some for something as unreasonable as parking for bikes. damn..getting pissed thinking about it.

Yeah, don't let common sense get in the way of politics. That'd be a ****ing disaster. I had some guy lambast me on facebook for daring to suggest that secure bike parking on campus would be a good idea. He retorted that this would "damage and increase the barriers to cycling"

What a bunch of ****tards.
