Speaking on this topic, I biked from St Clair/Dufferin to Pape/Danforth in 25 minutes at around 5 in the morning today after I got off work for a threesome. It was good.

Come pick up your tires. Wash your hands first.

Gokiburi, were you still interested in that Vittoria Rubino red tire? I'll swap for the black one you have.

Q: Total ballpark, but how much does a simple wet paintjob on a frame cost (no fork). All I'm thinking is matte black w/ a bit of white. Powdercoating = no good for this one, unless it's somehow lighter than wet paint.

Call around to auto repainters and motorcycle paint shops. Prolly yer best bet. I used to get an auto-body guy to do some paint jobs for me. Typical cost was around $100-$150
yeah...my e-mail account wont accept the file....too big.

Man... I hate it when you're minding your own business track standing in the right lane waiting for a light to change and some dickweed in a car behind you decides to lay on the horn. It happened this morning so I decided to take the high road and ignore him, but then he keeps going (holding the horn down) and I snap, turn around yell "F*CK YOU AS*HOLE!!!" and then hock a HUGE loogey right at his windshield. He was a taxi by the way. I HATE TAXIS.

I totally would not have yelled and spit at him had he not been such a jerk.

Am I the only one that feels like they are being threatened when they get honked at?

When the horn sounds is usually when I jump off the bike and need to retie my shoelaces...very dangerous riding with loose shoelaces. What kind of test is required to be a taxi driver anyway? Seems the only prerequisite is to not know anything of the Highway Traffic Act.

When the light turns green in that situation I tend to not be able to clip in at all or roll reaaaaaaal slow.

I feel bad for the folks who might not be as used to city traffic. I can deal with these asshats as I have been riding on the streets for many years. Its the neophyte cyclists that I worry about. I find it ironic that cabbies think nothing of cutting off everyone with a u-turn to pick up a fare, but as soon as they feel inconvenienced or slowed by someone else its lean on the horn time. Every evening on my ride home I have to deal with some clown who just has to get ahead of me to be 23rd in line at the red light. I will take the curb lane....I will ride at my own pace....and **** you if you dont like it. Hit me....I can crash roll with the best of em. Insurance rate hikes are a *****.

I completely road raged out on a guy who pulled that **** a few months back. To the point that I was almost through his window as I yelled at him, then blocked off the intersection yelling some **** about about, "Oh, look - now I'm a pedestrian you ****head! Now you have to wait until I'm done crossing! Do you remember THAT bit about the ****ing traffic laws?" Total fit of rage for both of us and some really good profanity combos. Luckily he didn't get out of the car/gun it and kill me and I didn't drop the bike/break something on his truck.

Ya ... it was silly. I remember some woman giving us a "Those stupid men are going to kill each other in the middle of the street," look. Now I just have hearing lapses and give them the thumbs-up.

My crazy taxi driver a few weeks ago got out of his car, came toe to toe with me and yelled "I PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE!!!"

Damn taxi terrorists...

UN Definition of terrorism:
"Terrorism is an anxiety-inspiring method of repeated violent action, employed by (semi-) clandestine individual, group or state actors, for idiosyncratic, criminal or political reasons, whereby — in contrast to assassination — the direct targets of violence are not the main targets. The immediate human victims of violence are generally chosen randomly (targets of opportunity) or selectively (representative or symbolic targets) from a target population, and serve as message generators. Threat- and violence-based communication processes between terrorist (organization), (imperilled) victims, and main targets are used to manipulate the main target (audience(s)), turning it into a target of terror, a target of demands, or a target of attention, depending on whether intimidation, coercion, or propaganda is primarily sought," (Schmid, 1988)."

Taxis sound like terrorists to me...
