    But that's just what works for me. Every body reacts differently when playing in the cold.
    Yeah, my biggest concern is getting something that will be too hot. Regardless of how cold it is, 5 minutes in to the ride and I am sweating like an ape. Right now I wear a T-shirt, a long-sleeved shirt on top of that, an Adidas polyester soccer jersey and then a nylon windbreaker on top of that. These 4 layers are great but I get a bit bulky with all of that clothing, I was thinking that the CSC thing would streamline things a bit.

    or you can go to value village and pick up something that will get you through til the spring bike show in march? i like my pearl izumi jersey i got there, but i have a fleece/wind-stopper jacket (yay for free trades!) for lower temps. don't forget about looking for stuff with reflective strips for visability...

    the fabirc is probably nice on those things but you end up looking a bit like a billboard. i have an old full zip nalini (i think) italian team jersey and it's a good weight for riding aerobically (sp) even in winter with a base layer below and a windbreaker on top.

    of all the jerseys in the pro peloton i think CSC is the nicest (except for the the team bianci jersey's from ulrich's comeback year, whenever that was).

    It's funny you mention VV, after this coffee I am meeting a friend there. I've found a couple of bicycle-related jerseys there but yeah, I will keep an eye open for something today.

    I picked up this jacket in munich (Pearl Izumi Barrier Jacket) for 60 euros:


    I don't think I'll need more than a long sleeved lightweight jersey under it. Nicely made.

    PS. I watched people skiing today...

    At the crazy indoor ski slope in Dubai? That thing is SO nuts, and mostly staffed by Canadians who know where to find good bootleg whiskey.

    Yeah thats the one. Its funny seeing people in rented ski jackets who are totally amazed by the snow. I suppose deserts are pretty novel to me still. In regards to the whiskey, the liquor store would be a good place to start! UAE is pretty liberal in regards to alcohol.

    Yeah I know you can find it in UAE but I met these ski instructors who fenced bootleg whiskey to Saudi at a huge mark up via the red sea (Edit: May be another sea, not close enough to a map to check) when I was there. They were rolling in dough and buying drinks for anyone that spoke english at the bar, fun times.

    I would not try to smuggle whiskey into Saudi at any cost. That is just plain dangerous. Man oh man. I have no idea what Saudi jails are like, but I'd rather not risk it! Theres so many ways to get filthy rich here legally, why bother?

    Hey Shiz I'm with you. I've been to Saudi its not the kind of place I'd screw around too much. Amazing country to travel in...if your a guy and Medina is awesome as are some of the things you can do, but Saudi jail scares me. But these guys were good old boys from the hills in BC scared of nothing and having a grand old time making a killing.

    Don't forget our Evening Of Scotch this Friday (Dec 29). I'm thinking we meet at my place at 8:00. Just IM me to RSVP and let me know if you need directions.

    I'm not sure if anyone has a bottle to bring yet other than Keith/Jeremy, but I'm totally clueless/bottleless as well. K/J maybe one of you guys could handle making sure we don't wind up with doubles or whatnot since you could potentially recommend a brand/whatever to us clueless people.

    If anyone has any good bike-related movies on vhs/dvd, I encourage you to bring them. And I'll make sure we have some munchies and such.

    Yeah, no worries. 10pm is probably fine. I don't think it will be a late night however, so I wouldn't plan for any later than that. You can always just give me a ring (IM for my # if you don't have it)

    Wes.... you are having everyone over to watch bike vids and bring their own bottles of scotch at 8pm? How can this not end up being a late night? This sounds like a bunch of drunken yahoos and their bikes trying not to wake up the rest of your building at 1:30-2:30 in the morning...How do you like your eggs?

    There is so going to be a game of truth or dare that ends with someone skitching a ride on the back of a garbage truck wearing only a green garbage bag...

    let me know what manner of edibles i can bring. i'm thinking something neutral and palate cleansing (oat cakes, raisins etc).

    Well of course best behaviour, after injesting how much scotch, and watching all manner of bike mastery/trickery on screen..... No one has intent.... that would be...... e..v...i...l or sociopathic at the very least and he's on vacation in Dubai.
