    just be careful to mount them high enough; they are made to be set up higher than a normal drop bar and can be quite uncomfortable on the hands if you have too much weight on them. also, don't forget they're something like 55cm wide.

    It is very *****-esque, isn't it? My mind has been in the gutter all day, sorry.

    as a side note, pyze: i managed to crack my 9" henkels pro about 1/2 way through the blade today (at least i noticed it today). what the hell!? it's a $140 blade! you ever cracked a knife like that?

    Yeah, I'm like 99.9% sure a 135 would be perfect. I have this hub on now and it is 135 and where I have the cog gives a perfect line. Even a few mm shorter would work. Thanks for the idea on 63c, lots of 135 hubs out there. I have the axiom on a pristine mavic rim thats beggin to be changed.

    I've busted a few nella knifes before, but never my good ones (Victorinox for me). I would consider sending it back. Don't henkils have warrenties? What were you doing to break it, and get a pic, would love to see the blade. I busted one trying to hack through veal bones, sheared right in half vertically in the middle. Freaked me out. Snapped one trying to pry some frozed demi out of a 20L pail. Not that funny as the blade kind of sprung across the room. Learned from that mistake to heat the blade first. Worked much better.

    A friend gave me a moustache bar about 10 years ago and I tried on my7 speed. Was like driving a TTC bus. Even with the stem lowered a felt like a huge sail with my arms so wide apart. Looked like I was trying to hug the Staypuff Man.

    My final school loan cheque has gone through as of this morning. It took ALOT of years to pay that sucker off, but I have officially put myself through school. Jeremy, two things.... Nice Clean Bike TM, wood fenders are too cool for words, and I'm almost positive you can get a replacement knife, they're a big name in the industry. OH OH to Jermey and Pyze-guy, have either of you been to that restaurant supply place across from George Brown? What are they like price wise, ...where can Daddy get himself a nicer set of knives? Or at least a few good ones.

    That's what I like about those bars. Most of the time, you end up riding with your hands on the curves though, which are considerably narrower. The widest position really only gets used when you are climbing, or starting from a stop-and the extra leverage really helps in those situations.

    I had to do the 10km/h ride all the way home and I still got juicy.

    The only good thing about the rain and bikes is that your drivetrain is ultra smooth.
    ya I guess it was good i put em on that morning...but now im gettin the racing stripe up my backside so it sux without the rear fender! RIP fender!

    I saw a mythbusters episode and they decided that a bike lawnmower was impossible. They couldn't even do it properly with an electric mower attached to the front. Maybe they were wrong though...

    I bet someone with time & smarts on their hands could build one from an adult tricycle though. Space between the 2 rear wheels would be blammo for blades& you could have a lever to raise the blades & ride to the quickee mart....I want so much to be an eccentric (b)millionare & pay smart people obnoxious amounts of money to build stupid things for me...sigh

    A guy I know spent almost 2 years in Guatemala working with a program to use human power to do farm work. I am pretty sure they rigged up some kind of bike roto-tiller as well as cycle generators. The Mythbusters guys are pretty good at jury rigging stuff, but in a 3rd world country, necessity is the mother of invention.

    Bah mythbusters. Just because they couldn't do something doesn't mean it actually wasn't possible. This isn't like a mathematical proof or anything.

    although rare, toronto does have its share of *******s being pulled out in cases of road rage... and it's always once the altercation has escalated.
