    I don't think it was a matter of whether they'd win, but by how much. In that sense it isn't as bad as I'd feared. Granted, it still sucks the bag.

    Since it looks like I missed the party. I have a pair of Grado Sr-60's at home.

    A4audio in Richmond Hill is selling a pair of sr-80s for 99USD (seems like a pretty good deal).

    I used to listen to music while riding. The not hearing stuff wasn't so much a problem as the drunken delayed reaction time. That's what made me stop using them. Plus I like to hear the noise my bike makes (i.e none).

    climbs:
    -mt.pleasant northbound, roxborough drive to inglewood drive
    -pottery road

    headphones:
    -in the city. never, i believe ears are essential for safety. e.g., you can often hear a vehicle door open before you see it...from my experiences, it is typically cracked ajar momentarily before it is fully opened and does not often produce a loud enough sound to be heard over music.
    -trails, rural, suburban, some urban residential, rollers, dromes: sure.

    [QUOTE=darkmother]Ok, we need to do a tour of Toronto "hills", combined with gratuitous park beer drinking after each one. Northbound bayview south of St. Clair, Southbound Yonge south of York Mills, maybe something north of the beaches.
    Glen Manor from Queen up to Kingston road is a bee-otch. the first one is a roller but that last stretch to K.R. is really steep. Guys on my team used to do hill intervals going up one street, then down the next. The beaches is good for this. Nothing super long but some of them are pretty steep.

    On another note the used bike dude is coming by at 5:30 today. I will stick around a little late tonite (6:30ISH) for anyone who wants to come by a little later.

    I use a 50/50 blend of chainsaw oil and 10W30 motor oil. Stays in the rollers where you need it.

    Hey at least olivia chow won!!!! I just found out that she's the co-chair of a bike advocacy group in toronto... Just another reason to be happy to get that ****** bag Ianno out of trinity-spadina!!! I'm actually pretty impressed with the NDP this election... silverlining to the cloud I'd say.

    I just wished they had pushed themselves as a viable alternative this time around instead of playin' "We'll make a good oposition" Should a gone for the brass ring this time. Thrilled for Chow as Layton is "The Man" in my riding, happy for them as a couple as well as politically because she's a great fighter for the folks.

    Salut Mr. Martin... hopefully you can be golfing with a retired Harper soon.

    I hear you on the viable party TRaffic Jammer. When I say happy, I was happy for them to get more seats... I wasn't happy with the way they watered down their positions on say *** control and *** violence to appeal to more voters, but hey if Harper can start saying he doesn't have a position on abortion to get votes than I'd say the NDPs increasingly hidden social agenda fits in just fine... Don't hate the player, hate the game?

    Oh and I laughed pretty hard cause during her victory speech it sounded like olivia chow said that she was going to put an end to "chow poverty" instead of child poverty Do I smell an MP pay raise?

    Anything that takes away Harper's carte blanche is OK by me. I was truly terrified of a Conservative majority. I just hope we aren't doing this again by the end of the summer. Plus a leadership campaign for the Liberals? Belinda had better stay home from that dance.

    I saw some footage last night with Harper saying he wasn't going to bring up abortion rights and that he didn't want to talk about his stance. much eye-rolling ensued.

    I think if Mr Martin had sacrificed some MPs to the RCMP during ADGate he might have made it IMHO. ONE adman re-mortgages his house and pays back a million and it's all over? Damn if I had done that I'd never see the light of day again. So now they've lost but they pretty much got away with it.

    Whatever. Being from Saskatchewan, I know what the Reform Party stood for. The advantage of a minority government is that it gives them a chance to let people see what utter freaks they really are without doing too much damage. The Conservatives were really good at keeping their candidates mouths shut during the election; not a peep on Intelligent Design or throwing single parent welfare recipients in jail. We'll see how long they can keep it up before the bile backs up in their brains and they snap.

    And I ride a fixed gear...

    Um, i beg to differ. if you can make it to the top of bluffers park on your fixie without getting off and walking, the beer is on me.

    if it's hills you're after, try: pottery rd, bayview extension, anything going north from queen to kingston rd in the beach and the holy mother of hills, bluffer's park (brimley, south of kingston road). there's also lots of mean switchbacks in the swansea neighbourhood (bloor west village) that i could show you.

    Don't get me started on Ruby Dhalla...

    I don't worry much about ascents as I have no pride. But descents ... an ugly hill for descending is York Mills just East of Yonge or Cummer just West of Leslie.

    eeeee

    you said 'cummer'.

    there was a communist AND a marxist-leninist in my area. Couldn't they get together on these things?
