    Hola all - been a while since I posted. Moved out west to go tree planting back in April, and have ended up living out in Vancouver. I'm back in Toronto for about the next week getting ready to ship a bunch of my stuff out west, and I'm selling one of my two bikes - with the cost of shipping, and limited space on the other end, I need to get rid of one of my rides.

    In any case, it's a 49cm 1984 Columbus SLX Ciocc road frame converted to fixed. I've got it posted with more details over on Craigslist, but thought I'd toss a heads-up onto the forums in case anyone here is interested

    here's the link: http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/238422063.html

    I'm also selling a tubular wheelset on Mavic rims and Miche hubs, also on craigslist.

    Have a good one,
    -T

    nice to read about the relative success of the program.

    University of Toronto Bike Bait program a success

    November 20, 2006 - 3:08 pm
    By: Anne Winstanley

    Toronto - The University of Toronto says their new high-tech strategy to catch bicycle thieves is a success.

    Since the pilot Bike Bait Program was introduced September 29, the university says Toronto Police have laid a number of charges, including four arrests in one day.

    "The project is ongoing and successful," UTPS corporal Peter Franchi, co-ordinator of the Bike Bait program. "We have seen a dramatic decrease in the number of bike thefts since the program's inception."

    Franchi says based on the results so far, the program will continue through 2007.

    The Bike Bait program involves placing global positioning system (GPS) beacons on high-end bikes in a number of campus locations. When the bicycle is stolen, the GPS allows police to track the bike and catch the thieves.

    First of all, it's not winter yet! I refuse to submit (I must admit, the weekend rides are getting slightly uncomfortable though). I'm going to roll road slicks until it gets stupid, then maybe I'll toss on my worn out CX tires.

    I threw the 37c conti travel contact tires on my cross bike last night. For some reason I decided to do it all without tire levers. My hands got so sore. I had to take the vittoria cross tires off my track wheels, the GP 3000's off my cross wheels, mount the travel contacts on the cross wheels and remount the GP 3000's on my track wheels. It was hard enough getting the GP 3000's off the rim of the cross wheels, but then putting a 37c tire on them was ridiculous. The rims are open pros so they are VERY narrow, and the tires were VERY wide (like 4-5 times wider than the rim) and stiff. It was like mounting car tires to the rim it was so hard but I eventually managed. Every time I would almost get the second bead mounted it would just pop out completely and make me groan. I'm just on the cusp of having tires too fat for the frame and fenders (Soma reports you can fit 38c tires with fenders, but they must mean slick 38c tires with low profile fenders). Oh yeah at one point when I was trying to pull the tires off I punched myself in the nose by mistake and it really hurt! I thought my nose was going to bleed for sure! haha

    I have yet to change the tires on my commuter. At the moment its got some 23c kenda slicks on it and I want to change them to my 32c Conti City Ride tires but I have a feeling my frame won't take them, let alone with fenders. Anyone know any good tires ~25c with some inverted tread and knobbies on the outside? I'm not going to worry about it until the roads get snowy, but I saw people scraping their cars today so it seems like it may be close.

    I'm usually pretty good at it, its just that the GP 3000s are very tight in combination with my mavic rims, and the touring tires were incredibly wide for the rim. By the time I got to the second tire of each wheel though I had figured out the particular technique for each, so I guess its just practice. Still, compressing a brand new fat tire laterally and pulling it around the rim so it stays put at the same time is pretty tough. If I had an extra hand it would probably be quite a bit easier.

    those look like my mavic bullhorns. The sloping shoulder part is kind of useless as far as hand positioning goes.

    There is a couple different versions of the stratos. The one I had was like 1-2inch drop.

    Edit: Someone should make a wheel completely out of fiberfix spokes.

    Nope, why, did you write it? I guess a flea market might be nice because there would be a sense of community but really, all that anybody wants to do is get rid of the stuff that they cannot use for a fair price. I think CL is already serving that purpose.

    This looks like the tandem that was on sale at the bike swap

    http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/238765999.html
    And while this guy IS swallowing $150, can't you get this bike new from a store for around the same price? He is just saving you the premium of going to curbside to buy this years model.

    probably. i suppose he is just aiming high in the hopes that someone will meet him in the middle...

    EDIT: Shiz, to answer your earlier question about thin knobbies, i know that vittoria makes a cross tire in a 700x27 with a low profile tread which is tough as nails. i'll be using them for their third winter. not sure if they're skinny enough to fit on your frame with fenders.

    I have a brand new 2006 in 56 cm that I only want $500 for. Good luck with that.
