    Fixed Rider Visiting Toronto:

    I'm in the process of moving to Toronto from Santa Fe, NM and will be here for a few weeks. I'd be down to meet some other riders, so shoot me message or keep your eye out for the freezing cold guy on the orange IRO. Cheers.

    Yes you should get one; the pcs-1 is great. I picked up the pcs-9 (not as good as the one you’re looking at) from MEC love having it. So if the pcs-1 is a good price grab it.
    Cheers

    What a Bagel has pretty good rugelach. If you're downtown there's one just south of Wellesley on Yonge. If you don't mind going a little further north, there's one at Spadina and Lonsdale in Forest Hill Village (north of St. Clair). Bring your laptop, Forest Hill is a wired (free) community. There's another bakery up at Bathurst and Eglinton, but the best ones are further north.

    Offhoff - yes a bike stand is worth it. I have a home made one I use quite often.

    Somna - is she the curly haired blonde? She's such a cutie.

    Stop that.

    Beh. We use the pcs-1's at bike chain, as far as portable stands go, they're good but still nowhere near as good as a permanent one (i.e it moves around when you're trying to do ****).

    I'm not sure you guys should be dating if you're on the forums. Seems kinda incestuous.

    hey i saw your email to the toronto fixed group list. i was going to respond saying try urbane, so, um try urbane. why not run the miche hubs through the winter? i believe they are sealed; i ran mine all last winter and they were fit as a fiddle after a cleaning and re-greasing in the spring.

    as for pleasure rides in the winter, i see no greater pleasure than riding our bikes to the pub and downing a few while we talk shop. that's a winter pleasure ride...

    you can work off the subs and bike up to bathurst / eglington. any bakery on bathust between there and lawrence usually makes fine rugelach.

    i can't remember being that cold on a bike in a long time. i didn't wear shorts like somnambulant's friend but i did neglect to bring a jacket.

    a man is entitled to his lists (my wife has her's too).

    besides, the idea is to just separate into categories of attractiveness, such as 'coffee date hot' or 'afraid she'll steal your kidney hot'...you get the idea.

    The gang members are trying to keep themselves free of nanites, so we’re
    asking people to bring their own orifice covering headgear (swim
    goggles, headphones, noseplugs, mukluks, etc) but we’ll provide the duct
    tape for your mouths.



    Uhhhhhh.... Thanks?



    mukluks
