Its a depressing thought, but I honestly have to say, if I didn't have a group like this to commiserate with, I might not be cycling today... Being a 'lone victim' is a hell of a lot worse than being in a community of victims. Its good to know you're all out there fighting the good fight

I'm sure this has been asked 10 000 times, but I can't be bothered to go through 531 pages, so I will ask again. I live downtown, I have a mountain bike and a road bike, and I'm thinking of going fixed too (if you have two bikes, why not three?). The problem is I don't want to spend a huge amount of money on it.

I have an old Raleigh 3 speed internal hub bike which is sweet, but I just read that it uses 650cc wheels, and I'd need a new crank, etc etc. I have a nice extra set of wheels that I could use, though I'd need the Surly Fixxer, so I could do a frame build up job...

I've looked at Urbane, and they have a nice frame, but it's pretty expensive. $450 for the frame and fork. Once I start buying the rest I'm getting into the price range of a new one from Specialized or Bianchi.

Any other ideas? Ideally (sorry this is long) I'd like to get a bike that I can either run SS or Fixed, that has brakes, and is 61cm or thereabouts.

David.

I'm in. May or may not make the start point in time though. CT track+beer action sounds fun.

I've been looking at ordering from IRO Cycle or from someone who distributes Surly. I'm actually going to wait 'till the Bike Show on the 21st to see if anyone has any new track frames on the cheap ( ~ $300)

TMI ahead... (btw, is there a spoler tag on this messageboard?)

Gah, it was only my first threesome, and it wasn't that great even (I spent most of the time with the one guy and then I went home after with him)

When my band was on tour in 2000 our drummer had a threesome in Calgary. We made him describe every last detail and it was the most hilarious thing ever. Our guitarist nearly drove us off the road..

Yeah well don't feel too bad. I was going westbound on Bloor and taking the lane since I was about to turn Left on StG. Going the speed of traffic (which wasn't very fast) And this asshat behind me layed on his horn.

I gave him an earful when I slowed down and pulled up besides his window. I yelled so loud he looked like he was stunned by a flashbang.
