But they're scatched up (on one side) because "SOMEBODY" doesn't know how to "gently" remove stem from bars.

If you want to take a look at them, I'll bring them to CM
Ask "Somebody" how much he sold them to me for,
I shall flip it to you (if you so choose) for the same price.

does that mean you have to show up drunk or is it progressive?

I forgot to mention that I saw a "For Sale" sign on Igor's place the other day. I dunno if that is a good thing or a bad thing but it might mean the crackheads in the west end will have to travel further to unload their stolen bikes.

A quick question for those of you who have couriered in Toronto before....how bad is the job on your ride? Does your bike suffer a lot or just a little?

Igor must be diversifying his portfolio shurely.

As for the abuse your bike takes on the job that is kind of subjective. Obviously you will be increasing the mileage that the bike sees so there is that. Locking and unlocking 100 times a day can be harsh on the paint. As long as you take the time to regularly clean and service your ride I wouldnt say you will have big probs....particularly with a fixed. Do whatever you have to do to get full fenders set up....not only do you stay much drier and cleaner but the bike does also.

Last time I saw him, he was in the process of converting his GF's Yorkville house into a sort of bike junkyard. Gotta love that guy....such an epic a$$hole.
