I gotta swing by city hall to renew my parking permit, but I might come by after that for a bit.

Anyone want to ride around the CNE (or elsewhere) later tonight? That's assuming it's not pouring buckets, of course. How about 11PM? And by the way, the CNE has bright streetlamps which illuminate the whole course pretty well.

To the shop guys on the forum: Anyone know of a shop that orders from Quality Bike Products in the states? I'm looking to get a replacement cone for my Suzue Junior POS and QBP is the only outfit that makes the 3/16 size. Urbane just did a big order and won't be doing another for a bit. Harris Cyclery can do it but requires a $50 USD minimum order for Canadian orders. I've got an email out to Marcus at Yojimbo's.

Yeah, but mine is now technically expired and I totally forgot about it until last night. Online = waiting for it to get mailed to me.

I actually said that once to the MNR officer when he asked to see my waterfowl licence at Long Point.


He wasn't amused.

Her other suggestion was to sell my cannondale and use that money to buy a bike if I wanted. Don't want a new fix bike that bad.
Oh here i thought you only had the wheeler hence the encouragement to get another. never mind wives know best! (Not)
Cheers
Happy Friday

No, have this and an almost complete frankenbike. 21" road frame with 26 inch wheels and a bunch of other fugly stuff. Going to be the rain frame for the fixed wheel. Getting the Wheeler "fixed" in several ways come next week and spring. Getting a hub and wheel from Shapelike on Sunday, and then going to dremel off the cable guides and rear brake studs, and have my brother-in-law paint it with his airbrush come spring. Painted it last week with some cheap rustpaint from Crappy Tire. Fire Red colour, just painted over the stickers and all. Just want to protect from further rust over the winter. Doesn't look that bad concidering.

Oh man was that a crazy windy ride home! On front street I got caught in the side by a gust and almost lost my front wheel. Then I was pretty much slowed to a crawl going west on douro street, hit every once in a while by a strong side gust. Then I was waiting at the light on shaw at king trackstanding and a gust hit me in the back so hard I almost rolled into the intersection! once I got on shaw it seemed like a tailwind most of the way so when I was close to home I started to ride no hands. But of course a sidewind hits me immediately and I almost lose it again! FUn!

Try doing it for 9 hours. Soaking wet the whole time. Yay.
