I don't feel guilty. The $20+ subscription/donation price is dick compared to what municipal funding would be available to such a program and the civic benefits it would have. And I'd be up for an Aeolian ride if I'm available.

These both seem like really good deals for tall people like me:

http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/251594458.html

PS. sizing for these crazy carbon bikes is dumb.

The Giant listing was tagged and flagged. I figured it was a scam, it was too good of a deal. The Trek does look amazing and the price isn't bad either.

aaaaand my La Pavoni just arrived. A nice juggling act balancing it on my bars back from Purolater (why don't those guys ever buzz up to the apartments?). A little bit of servicing and it will be ready to go. I'm off to the flatlands for a week so won't be checking in, so everyone have a happy holiday of whatever flavour suits you best. Eat drink and be merry and I'll be back in time for the Scotch 'n ride.

I'm going to swing by MEC around 4:30 to 5ish before heading to Ideal for 5:30. Need to buy some coffee for staff gifts. Let me know if there is any change. No more passing ships.
