I got a cool stainless steel thermos from st. lawrence market today. I got one that fits in my bottle cage for early morning and cold rides, plus it also looks classy on my desk keeping my americano warm. It was 19 bucks, its a foot in height and holds 750ml (for when I want to get REALLY wired!)

what brand is it? i got one a while ago that fits in my bottle cage and has a flip top so i can drink it one handed on the go. perhaps it's the same one. if it is your coffee will stay hot even after riding to work in -20 weather.

Its a no-name one, and it hasn't got a flip top, so drinking on the fly will be tougher, but I don't really mind so much. With 750ml capacity its more like coffee for 2, which is really what I plan anyways, since I will be touring with my buddy this summer. We can just pull over every now and then and have a nice cup each by the roadside.

I'm considering getting one of the camping espresso makers and grinders from MEC for the trip as a 'spoil myself creature comfort' thing

400 odd grams worth of coffee creating goodness. My friend already has a cool MSR stove.

Last couple of days for the big sale at Curbside Cycle (where I work). Come monday we are getting rid off all the helmets and 2006 Bikes.

Bikes: ALL 2006 Bikes at wholesale
Helmets: All 2006 helmets 50% off

Just a shout out to anyone who wants to get a helmet or bike at the same price I could get it at. Or just come in on the weekend for a chat.

I know it looks like a commercial, but it's really just a friendly reminder of some sweet deals.

probably because operator is a word, not a name.

We stopped offering the free reach-arounds because people took advantage of the "Unlimited Reach-Arounds for one year with purchase of bike" deal. There are only so many reach-arounds you can give per day before it becomes un-profitable.

Its just espresso with water mixed in... pretty simple as far as fancy coffee goes.

espresso topped with hot water. from what i have been told it came about in italy during WWII when american soldiers not used to the strong espresso would order it with more water and so it was dubbed americano. either way it's tasty.

I'm up for it. Its too damn warm to stay inside. What time are you thinking of? I get off work at around 6pm. We could meet up at jet fuel or the like and then head onwards. If we are doing the spit though I'd prefer to go home first to pick up my cross bike.
