    If your going that deep and dont have simple, basic tools, yer own fault for not being prepared. My camelback, that I always take mtn biking, is a magical combination of snacky and repairy goodness. In the city you are never that far from help.

    yes indeedy that would suck. i would think that you have a link or two left over from when you shorten a new chain to put on your bike, throw that in your tool kit and a cheap chain tool and your off. that said i don't carry one around when i'm riding in the city; it's easier to show up at keith's with food/beer and borrow one of his!
    out in the country i'm super paranoid (don't know about the rest of you) so i end up carrying just about everything, even a spare tire (which these days is around my waist).

    You know there are some very good technical reasons why you have to sacrifice a goat every full moon with a silver knife in order for you SCSI chain to work.

    Still one of my favourite lines.

    Did you get a chance to ride any of the bikes there? Sweet rides. Nice parts too. Replaced my seatpost for about $2 I think. Of course it was so crappy it bent after about 6 weeks of riding, but still only had to buy 4 of them.

Anyway, I remember I posted a few months ago about never having a problem with these links....well, now I have.

    Anyway, skating your bike for 10 km like a scooter is actually easier than I thought it would be, but people look at you funny.

    I never could quite understand masterlinks.
    I never used one for that fact.
    Thus I never had a busted chain.

    A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.

    In case anyone is interested:

    06.08.23: This program will be delayed due to major issues with the reflective tape. We discovered prior to production beginning that the 3M reflective tape that we sourced for this garment will not adhere to DWR-coated fabrics, such as this. We sourced another option, NyloLite, which has been successfully tested, and we will be moving ahead with this material. However, this issue has seriously delayed production, as we missed the original production window with our supplier, who is fully booked. We are awaiting confirmation from Production, but at this point in time, we expect to receive our first order in early December."

    The current ETA for the Hydrocycle is now January 5/07. Unfortunately, this is beyond the 30-day limit that we require for backorders, so cannot be ordered at this time.

    I'm sorry for any disappointment that this may cause you. Our MEC Whoosh Men's Cycling Jacket (5007-952, $175.00) is similar to the Hydrocycle, but uses the 3-ply Dermizax EV membrane, which is more breathable (and more expensive) than the Hydrocycle's Entrant coating, and has a zip-up tail flap, which allows the Whoosh to be worn as a hiking or urban jacket, increasing its versatility. If you would accept it as an alternative, the Whoosh is available immediately, and can be seen and ordered on the following site:

    I ended up with the ever-popular SuperMicroft jacket in black because I couldn't wait until winter was half over to have a proper jacket.

    welcome to the commuter jacket club. those are pretty useful jackets; good as long it's not full on pouring. good even in the snow.

    That's sounds so painful ... I'm actually in awe.

    One of my best "raw blinding pain" moments happened when a resident had to rearrange my intestines (from the outside) after a post-abdominal surgery mishap. Got an assload of demoral after that one though.

    The topper has to be the time a surgeon literally tore open a healing incision in my pelvis (about 5" deep) because it was closing up too quickly and they were worried about infection. Good times, good times.

    I've never broken anything "doing stuff," but damned if I don't hate hospitals.

    Yeah, I've had 4 or 5 of those over the years. Really versatile. I wish they would make the cut a little more form fitting though, it catches too much wind for a cycling specific jacket.
