    drool.

    one of these days i'm going to go into high park cycles and grab the raliegh carlton track bike with full campy sr of the wall and run once i chloroform the owner. i'm not sure he knows what he has. either that or he's keeping a museum.

    okay, in speaking to Cam last week over coffee we brought up the idea of this scotch tasting we've been talking about for so long. i'm curious if anyone else has some time off over the festivus break when they're not visiting relatives or what have you. i know i've got a couple weeks off school and at least a handfull off work so i'd like to pick a date and just do this thing. it will be nice and cold out too. whose around and free between christmas and new years?

    I think they will come back again. Things seem to be slowing down a bit and the trend is slowly doing what all trends do, die. In a couple of years, the hipsters will be selling all their frame and components and things will be cheap again. Maybe even cheaper, once the flood starts.

    I just wish I hadn't said "No way am I riding a track bike on the street!" to my friend 6 years ago when he offered me his Conti for 300bucks. What the hell was I thinking?

    Anyone have a pair of decent condition 32 hole 700C clincher rims?
    Double wall, single/double eyeleted... SILVER?!!?!

    Box/Aero whatever..
    Ambrosio? Old mavic? whatever.

    All the new stuff I am dissatisfied with. They just keep getting uglier, heavier and blacker.

    I'm looking to lace these used Miche hubs I bought like months ago for a winter wheels.
    I've just been super lazy.

    I BUY YOUR RIMS
    PM me. KPLZTHX

    Not sure if you can still get these, but I've had good luck with Sun M14a's. Light, no annodizing, no machining, pinned, semi aero, single eyelets. Pretty much oldschool. No problems with mine until I wore through the brake surface on 'em (winter use). When I swapped a new rim onto the wheel I couldn't get the bare, used rim to collapse by sitting on it-usually it is easy.

    It really pisses me off that there are not many good quality, moderate cost rims around. Just more and more flashy crap, and ever bigger, sparklier logos.

    He has access to , um.....A couple/few of the Ambrosio rims, but not the whole product line through one of his distributors. I'm holding out for a set of FCS's
    merely one page from the catalogue... but I think Keith has access to some of the ones on this page.... the high high end ones are sick yo!!!!

    My miches are built to Ambrosio rims, never realized that was such a rarity. I got my wheels from Dave Fix My Bike right down the street on christie from me. Maybe he has a connection.

Still, it looks like some kind of crazy jujitsu bike or something.

    Also this weekend seems to be the best forecast weekend in about a month. Sun and cloud, temperature fluctuating in the single digits. No reports of ridiculous wind.
    Your cross bike would be completely acceptable. Your Jujitsu bike sounds even cooler though. I am still a fan of coasting and gears. In fact I'm going to be looking at this dude's Gios road bike tomorrow. I might be nuts but it sounds sweet and it's my size. My Urbanite is a bit small for me and... well this is a Campy Gios. Just don't let the moderators see that. More on topic, today I came down the hill on Bayview just north of Bloor/Danforth on my track bike and wow it was a lot of work! It was fun though but man.

    So... route suggestions (other than accross the lake)? I'm feeling uncreative. When i ride i usually just aimlessly meander unless I'm at work in which case someone tells me where to go.

    I would but I don't think I can spare the whole day for a ride, I got **** to do. I could spare maybe a couple of hours or something maybe.

    I don't really feel like doing much more than 100km tomorrow, so that should limit it some http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=525805

    Is this a ******** route? I can't decide as I don't know the west end all that well.

    Dundas can get pretty quick....Burnamthorpe is cool. Less travelled out there might be Bloor and it's just above Dundas out in Mississaguga. Have fun with that looks fun.
    I used to ride out to say, Kipling from Leslie queen , then head north on Martin Grove to about HWY7 in Woodbridge. It hurt nicely.

    I basically want a quick route out of the city to the countryside, but I for the life of me can't decide the best way.

    Well you are in luck my friend, as I am originally from Mississauga! (Wow for once that's actually a good thing) That route looks fine for the most part. I think once you get to Mississauga it might be a good idea to go up to Burnumthorpe its a lot nicer to ride on than Dundas at that point. The last time I rode to my parent's house I rode straight out Dundas and it was fine until sort of Islington/Kipling ish, at which point it might be good to head north. Coming back on Bloor might not be a bad idea since it is further south on the west end, making a crude "loop" of sorts. So west Dundas, north to Burnumthorpe maybe out to Mississauga road which is a REALLY nice road to ride, maybe take that south hmm crap how could that line up with Bloor. How does that sound any input? I'll try to figure out something for back east maybe?

    Okay for country side, without going way west, like west of Mississauga its probably best to hit Mississauga road. Forget going south on it though. Maybe go north. yes! Okay Shiz how far west do you want to go do you care? Because there is some pretty nice country side on the northern end of Mississauga and then we could sorta loop down somehow to come back...

    You realize of course you are no longer protected by the Toronto/Lake Ontario Protective Bubble TM, once you get past, say.... the airport. You are then subject to the real rules of weather.

    What time are you thinking?
    When sadness fills my days
    It's time to turn away
    And then tomorrow's dreams
    Become reality to me
