tovi: I think he picked it up on ebay

ps. you'd think I would have put 2 and 2 together when I saw the dried bird poop on the seat I was about to sit in (outside of ideal), but I didn't. Let's just say that now I have to wash my hair.

Yeah, I got it on eBay. If another cheap one pops up, I will get it, I dig it a lot. This one ends soon and is cheap so far, just not the colour I want.

Anyone interested in a cat? A friend has a new bebe and the cat isn't taking kindly to things.

10 years old.
Male neutered tabby ginger cat
Healthy, approximately 10 lbs.
Very friendly and loveable.

check this out guys at Cyclepath on Yonge/Eglinton, they have a bike sale, bikes are 50% off, I was almost tempted to buy that Pinarello Prince w/ Campy Chorus Component and Ksyrium Elite will set, the price tag was $5,600.00, at 50% off that's a real bargain, I didn't buy it because the size was big for me it's size 56 c-c...

Apparently that's a sign of good luck...for some stupid reason. Too bad you didn't get crapped on before your wipe out.

Hrmm.. My friend actually said that to me, but I thought he was just being a ******. Of course, he also said it was bad luck if I washed it out in less than a month.

Hard to say how prone they are but when I mentioned buying one in this thread a little while ago, Cavernmech (I think) said he had a friend who'd had one snap on him. Also, someone mentioned it in the road forums. So, that is two people on these forums, take that for what it is and make your decision. I like mine alot

btw. don't forget peeps, scotch tasting, Dec 29th, my place. If there's any discussion about it in the next week, don't expect a response from me since I'll be away.

As for the cat offer, I already have two, and I think that's pretty much the limit in my apartment (cats outnumbering people = creepy). Thank goodness my housemates are also cat people so it's easy to have someone look after things while I'm away!

See y'alls when I get back. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't miss the snow ride! The forecast looks like it's going to be a green xmas.

Cheers!

Got a look at the current state of your bike in the photo thread super nice *but if i were you witch iím not Iíd scrape(gently remove) the rest of the logos off if possible presto "stealth" the fork sets it off for me & i like the odd stem.

Also while iím talking Iíd like to add.

We had a beautiful day here so the wife kicked me out told me to for a ride witch i did & put some km's on the road bike along Collins bay hwy 33 water front all the way it was a nice ride first time in a long time.
Cheers

I'll keep a running list of atendees and their prospective contributions, flavour-wise.

Have fun on holidays amigo; may your head remain bird crap free.

If it's on your neck, just shave it off the neck. It doesn't itch so much if you keep it on your chin.

I might be down for the tasting. I'll have to figure out what good scotch looks like first.
