*trying desperately to not take the buns comment and run with it*

Actually, if the weather's nice this weekend I wouldn't mind getting together for some buns and some coffee. Anyone else interested?

"kim moon" bakery north side on Dundas just east of Spadina is one of my fave bun spots, I don't know the exact address. A 10 minute walk from work means I'm in there about twice a week, I can get an assortment of about 6 buns for like $1.50.

loving the black bean crisps lately.... solid protien, and at 50cents its cheaper than a powerbar.

yung sing pastry is at 22 baldwin.. mmm, nice buns.. and tasty dim sum. all takeout. furama is on the west side of spadina, south of dundas. i don't think it's as good as kim moon or yung sing, but they do have good hk-style drinks there.

PM me to let me know what would work for you. I'm doing some work this weekend, but will be around most evenings and probably late Sunday. A couple of good ales would be preferable to a 12 pack

anyone have any opinions on Raleigh technium (road) frames? yes i know that they are a steel / alminum mix and use that bonding treatment in the lugs which is precarious, but i have an opportunity to pick one up for a reasonable price (frame / fork only) and in my size. any horror stories about snapping tubes / lugs or just getting mocked by suckas on the doughnut ride?
speaking of the doughnut ride, i'd bet it would be fun to get a fixed posse to show up for it. i heard speak that this may have been done some time ago but either way i'd like to see how fixies fare against the roadie types...

haha,
Black Black is so great!
man.... I remember I got a pack from a friend who visited Japan.
He told me, "Black Black is only avalible in Japan"
so I figured it was a souvenir and I stuffed it in my drawer.

A week later, I went shopping with my parents at T&T (the BIGGEST chinese supermarket)
and I saw a whole box of them for sale....
dang, I felt so stupid. so I went home and chewed half the pack in one sitting.*edit- i'm starting to loose my memory. I just looked in my drawer and I still have one stick left! huzzah!*
sigh...

btw, cavernmech, I'll drop by on Tues afternoon to check out the shipment of frames.
I also should have a wheelset that needs building

Ya, I'm going to try to make it. Seeing as it's about 100 feet away from my apartment and I'm getting a cheque from work tomorrow, I really have no excuse not to show up. The gf is feeling pretty cruddy these days so she might not be in attendance, but I'll be there. If anyone's thinking about showing up ... lemmie know.

Anyways, to follow up on the dented frame.....
I got a package of random stuff to compromise the dent.
A bell that fits rite into your bar ends... kinda cool.
Got some bars, stem, seatpost, and saddle.
Well 2 saddles. One for grandpa bikes and a ti-railed saddle... that ironically also had a dent.
oh bummers.
Also got an 18t shimano freewheel cog.
Well, the package of bike parts is much appreciated and it feels good to know that there are super duper ebay sellers out there.
yay.
