That is pretty cool, is that a helmet mounted camera, it seems pretty steady. I was out with my non-cycling friends and saw you guys go by. I spent about 15 minutes explaining to my non-cycling friends what a CM was and how it is an important part of the landscape of Toronto and necessary for representation of our (cyclists) needs in the city. They now think I am crazier than ever

We're being oppressed. We used to be a big deal on the main fixed page, but we got moved. Lame!

Ever since the move, I think I've only consulted the other threads once, and that was to find specific info about MACK hubs. Speaking of which, does any store in the city sell them, or does anyone have a pair of these hubs? They also go by the name 'Gromada' apparently, out of Poland.

I lust for them so.

i hadn't really thought of that, not sure what's going to be open tomorrow. my thoughts were that the easiest way to get rid of a hangover is fresh air and excercise. someone feel free to suggest the where; as for time i'm not sure anything before 11 is appropriate.

All of your pants have frayed cuffs and chain-grease marks. Oh yeah.

Happy 2007 everyone.

Clear blue skies, clear head, just sitting and drinking a cup of darkness. Going to do some wheel work. Anyone who is alive and wants to do coffee/hair of the dog ride later let me know.

Happy New Year all!

We had "Wild Game Day" here yesterday as the ladies parentals came down with venison and caribou! Spent the day watching them prep the meat with Ulu's - the meat came from outside Pangnirtung, Nunavut as my girlfriends mom does research with the Inuit there. Super cool... and one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Now my leftovers consist of caribou stew, caribou roast and venison stroganoff. Ridiculous.

That's okay we like freewheelers too. It's just sometimes us fixies wonder what that sound is coming from the back of your bikes.

Nah 24 is kind of annoying. It's the same thing every season, random killing of main characters = lamezor.
