It's cherry and in the bag. I have a sugino 75 crankset (165mm cranks) that's also freshly baked and in the box if you're interested.

Me: old bald guy with sandals. Likely wearing floods and (depending on the temp) polypro with cycling sandals. Black UTW bag and the ubiquitous purple MEC cycling jacket (again, depending on the weather).

Okay, I'll bring both down for you to have a boo at. No commitment on your part is required and it's no bother on my end.

... so I thought up the name for my new bike the other day:

"Spastic Fantastic"

That is all.

Heh - I just named my new (non-fixed... *GASP*) touring bike (for a Vancouver > Baja tour I'm going on starting in August) the "Juggernautilus".

I like Jack's "Neo" imitation. Is it just me or is he looking a mite bowlegged.

He's in my riding and when he was here you could routinely see him riding around the place. He really does seem to be a ride-it-like-they-talk-it kinda guy. I'm glad for him and Ms Chow.

tsk tsk tsk.

hey, my fork (Urbane chromey one) keeps getting a thin layer of surface rust on it. It pretty well just wipes right off, but it's still ugly.. Think a thin layer of grease would help things?

how about clear coat? Though a thin layer of grease can be said to help just about everything no?

my chrome columbus fork has a wee bit o' surface rust on it as well and nowhere near as gleaming as operator's ..you might have to keep re-applying the grease and wouldn't it attract dust and dirt? is it really humid where you're keeping the bike?

err.. did anyone make it to moonbeam? last weekend sucked the bag.

Jack Layton used to bike up and down Spadina back in the day and we used to chat now and then. This was when Spadina was 7 lanes one day, 6 the next and then 9 the next.....full of pot holes, delivery trucks, TTC buses, pedestrians and it was dangerous as hell. He is a pretty big reason we now have bike lanes in Toronto. He isn't really on the same page as me, politically, but yeah, he talks the talk and walks the walk.

I got rust off of my chrome fork with a bit of furniture stripper.

Damp tinfoil (shiny side) will get the rust off. Then use some autowax on the fork to keep it shiny. It'll dry hard and help protect. Then you can polish your forks daily with a diaper, like operator does.

err.... yes. <-- in black black funk . . .

Well here's to hoping you find you way out of the bad funk and into the good funk.

I'm around tonight (Wed) and I'm going to look at a co-op tomorrow (thursday) late aft then a place Friday around 6 at Pape and Dundas. I can hook up pretty much anywhere around those times.
