I can order them in ... I literally just want to see the latest M.U.L.E. and Mayhem and see how much **** they'll hold in person. I need something to carry tools, jacket, arm warmers, camera, etc. for this year's bike rally and I wouldn't mind experimenting w/ one of these things as a "no, I don't need this messenger bag every day" bag.


Maybe I'll swing by Duke's and see what's up. *cringe*

because i really want this scotch thing to happen, i'll take on the role of de facto organiser. how's friday december 29th for everyone? it's in limbo time, it's a friday, it could be a different kind of safety meeting etc. Wes has been generous enough to offer his place. if that falls through, we could always head to feather's pub on kingston road.

here's what i propose: contact me if you're interested so we can get together a list of parties. rules would be:
- everyone brings one 750ml bottle.
- single malts only from scotland (no blends / no american whisky)
- $30-50 per bottle
- everyone leaves with one bottle that they didn't bring (we'll all swap...you get the idea)
- tell us what bottle you'll be bringing ahead of time so there's no overlap.

Don't you already have a nice Cyclocross bike for winter?

350 sounds decent.

Yeah I do, but its not really 'for winter'. My cx bike is the nicest bike I have and I'm slowly setting it up for long haul touring. It stays locked up indoors and is set up for fast, dry winter riding at the moment... I don't really wanna beat it up and invite rust since its fairly thin triple butted steel.

Hence why a dedicated winter bike appeals to me, especially if they will customize it off the peg for no charge.

Get it. Thats a great price for an off the rack Kona thats good to go for winter. Would be hard to get parts to build one for the same price unless you have a frame ready. Are going to use a tensioner, or a half link? Is the rear wheel a conversion, or a dedicated s/s? Just curious (I have a great s/s wheel available as well that is for sale, excellent rim and sealed hub).

Other options are

http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/246886507.html
or
http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/246432601.html
but this would probably be to small and I don't know if you are looking to do a build.

Edit: The more I look at the Smoke, the more I like it. $350, awesome price.

So last night around 10ish I was riding westbound on College towards this party I'm going to get wasted at... I'm stopped at the red light at Bathurst, and just as the light turns green, I see this chick blow by me on an olive-green fixie with a honey Brooks. Wow! Needless to say, I catch up to her and strike up a conversation, but I mean there's only so much you can say when you're trying to pay attention to her and make sure you don't get run over at the same time.

Does anybody know this girl? Is she on this forum? If so, I want her phone number. I don't know if it was a proper fixie or a conversion, but the bike was definately olive-green, didn't have any decals, looked pretty old, but had a nice and shiny Brooks B17 (or Professional). Oh, and blond hair. And she can really move.

Someone help me out!
