I hate Suzue hubs
races quickly grinding down
bearings to follow

I'm certainly hoping that the spin I experienced this morning was traction-less spin instead of stripping of hub by cog spin... otherwise I'll have to revise the haiku

And TJ, the Elvish link is here http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/242572205.html

I dunno, I think it looks cool, protects the frame, makes it less stealable, and finally gave me a chance to use all those stickers I had.

If I want to sell the bike I can take off the stickers... I'm more worried about what people will think about how my dropouts look. Big beefy powder coated aluminum dropouts look gnarly after about 2 wheel changes.

So an off duty police officer is being charged with a DUI and leaving the scene of an accident after hitting a cyclist on Saturday. He's been suspended pending the charges, gotta love the cops.

Edit: I come back to my guy winning the lib leadership (go dion go) and cold. Cold sucks, that is all.

someone here should pick up that Elvish, we can have an Elvish crew

oh man, riding home in the Dundas bike lane today I almost died, there was a big section completely covered in ice, I could feel myself slowly sliding sideways as I rode over it, and as soon as I was about to fall over I hit dry pavement again and regained traction.

I was going about 40-45km/h at the time

Lymbzero: when do you wanna meet up so I can toss you some cash.

He came by the shop w/ it ages ago. It's a nice frame, but it's entry level Columbus tubing.

Yeah, that was my guess as well. Maybe it will go on eBay in the spring for 250$USD or so but without a fork it is a real hard sell.

He's in a tricky situation. He paid too much for it (and he knows it) so he's just trying to recuperate his "losses." It's not a situation where he's trying to make a tidy profit. If someone's interested, you might want to contact him and see if he actually has the fork, or if he'd be interested in a deal that involved less money but some extra parts/etc. traded along w/ the cash.

It's in really good condition. He's upgrading to a SuperNova for this season (was going to buy it, realized ****ing Giftmas will put me in debt so no extra purchases).

short people get all the lovin'.. every single nice frame I see is 53cm. And damnit I'm seriously considering buying a Jamis Nova and I'd prefer the 2006 retina-detaching green to 2007's orange.
