yuk, I'm way to hungover to try and battle the greasy slop and slush that fell overnight from woodbine to downtown.
I'll meet (re-meet) you guys another time...

Alright, well I'm going to be there in a few minutes. I hope there's more than just me sitting around for awhile waiting for Shiznaz to wander by.

It's been a great weekend for cycling, did you guys meet up at the bun shop? I haven't been riding fixed much lately, I am putting my new road bike through the paces lately and it is wicked so far. I hope everyone got out for a few hours of cycling this weekend, cheers

yeah, we all met up at Moonbeam yesterday and then 4 of us went to Kim Moon for some buns. Good times.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. We should definitely do this semi-regularly! Maybe another time we could get together in an evening for some drinkage... and I also think it'd be cool in the Summer to get together every now and then for some drinkin' in the park, badass teenager style. There's lots of great places for that.. I'm partial to Bickford park at Harbord and Grace.

blargh.. I have to stop fantisizing about the Summer in January.

hey shiznaz.. what CK headset were you looking for? I'm talking to my employed-by-chrisking friend right now. I told her a 1" GripNut in Black. I think you said you needed a 1" threaded.. wasn't sure about the color, but she asked.

She said:
yeah GN and 2nuts in 1" we really only have black & silver regularly otherwise it would take longer to get
we have green and pewter i think in 2nuts.. i cant remember

HEADFI.com! huzzah!
I got Sure E2Cs and had HD600s (till i sold it off to finace the bike)
I was going to go to the meet in Windsor in the summer but didn't have my G2 then. boo.
I got some PCB's of the millet hybrid and Gmoy i've been meaning to build up.
(if you could help me that'd be cool, cause I don't know how to read schematics)
on WOAH! OPERATOR! you don't happen to be the dude who built up that heavily modded tube amp with caps the size of pop cans.. what's his name... Aerius?

ZOMG, man... i got a f-king parking ticket on sat. I put in 50 cents to the meter cause I didn't have any other change around.
That fifty cents covered me for like.. 15 mintues.. but I stayed for over 3 hours.
btw, can anyone tell me how to pay it off?
I really can't have my parents know... (they don't even know I can drive highway...so if they ever found out I got a ticket downtown they'll snap)

Oi! on the talk of ordering CK headsets! hook me up with a 1" threaded set and as for colors surprise me. haha... man, I don't even know the diameter of that ring at the base of the fork, I gotta check that. btw, whatsit called?
*edit* took off the pictures.
operator, you can just check my setup at http://photobucket.com/albums/y145/Keithipoo/
and don't make fun of the username

If you don't have a cc, you can send it in by mail or pay it at a bank if you have an account there.

Leslie and Queen here...... not a fixie guy though.
Rush hour in Toronto....like a video game on King and Queen St.s

Blasting down to the bottom of Yonge is always a thrill though.

Guilty. I've got some shure E2C's and they are great. You can actually hear the music while you ride-it's pretty much like being in a car.

I have a set of Sony MDR-V200's (I think) that I've had for about 10 years, and a set of Panasonic in-ear headphones. The sony's are alright.. bass heavy. Definitely far from accurate! The Panasonic's are pretty well the opposite.. I bought them over Sony's in-ear phones because I did a bunch of research and they're supposedly more accurate. I'm not sure if that's really what I want anymore though.. a little extra kick in the low end would be nice sometimes. I still like them for around-town headphones though, especially for the price!

I've been shopping for a set of proper studio phones for a while though for my musical dabblings, but I've never gotten around to it. I've used the Sony V7506 in a few different places and found them comfortable, but I've never A/B'ed them with anything else.

ps. I can't ride with in-ear headphones. I need my hearing!
