    It sucks that people are afraid to ride in the city. People come into the store all the time complaining about how dangerous it is. I try to tell people that it's not that bad, but the truth is, sometimes it doesn't matter what you do, someone else might do it to you. Though, most of the people I would say, are more worried about "thin tires" and getting them stuck in street car tracks.

    When people are looking for a MTB for commuting to work, because it's "Safe" with it's big knobby tires, I often pull out my Surly and say "I don't have any problem with my bike. one break, one gear, narrow tires".

    I've yet to decide if that's a good sales technique or not.

    P.S. Just realized I was post #18000 back there. Wheee!

    Were these taken with the same camera as the Loch Ness Monster?

    Loch ness monster for the win.

    P.S That photo was revealed to be a hoax a while ago. Clay model towed by a boat.

    Dudes,

    Let's get a van going down to Monstertrack 8.

    It's always a very straightforward, and well organized alleycat.

    it'll be mega.

    I see that my jar of peanut butter has an alleregy warning on the side warning people it contains peanuts. Like what the f*ck else would it have in it? Goatass? What is the world coming to when you have to warn people about that.

    It's time to turn away

    Nice.. another nerdy scifi book reference. I've been thinking about making a "wall of shame" sort of website for a couple of years actually. I think someone has started one, but my ideas are better.

    Love the "ready for a core sample" bar ends too. *shudder* Are they proud of the fact that there's shiny metal visible from the ends of their grip? What else would warrant a solo closeup picture?

    neat, i'd never heard of bikechain. just looked it up. not that i'm a student (and i/we've got tools and stuff at home) but i'd be more than happy to spread the word.


    sirrobinofcoxly: i had just the opposite happen when i bought my bike - i fell in love with it immediately and the clerk was all like "oh you don't want that, the happiest day of my life was when i got rid of my drops, etc etc"... i think i might have even looked in your shop and had someone show me a frame saying "this is very popular, everyone is riding it" and therefore *totally* killed the sale! in terms of MTBs, the key word is mountain, of which toronto has none. sure, suspension may help going over potholes, but it's a waste of energy. some of the reasons that i like SS are that i can go fast and still pick it up to go up and down stairs if need be. and if I can do it...

    double post!

    glad someone picked up on that... i noticed someone saying skitching (or however it's spelled) recently

    i thought someone had started a wall of shame as well... you should try it out though! i think it's a great idea, but i don't have the tech skillz.

    I was riding behind a guy on a mountain bike with disc brakes/suspension, etc this morning on Harbord. I mention this because there's this little hump in the bike lane heading East across from Bickford Park. It's slightly annoying, but whatever. Anyway, I'm about 50' behind this guy and I see him steer out of the bike lane to avoid this little bump. I hit it every day on my fixie with 115psi 23's and it barely rattles my fenders. What a wuss.

    That's my story.

    Somebody wasted alot of their time making that thing. They could have made a little more effort to make it not look like they just painted over a photograph but whatever.

    There may not be mountains here but we have a ton of good trails to put a mountain bike to good use. I love my full sus bike....just not on the road. Mountain bikes on the street FTL.

    http://www.platewire.com/ for those who want to notify others of cars ridiculous stupidity.

    Snowcrash isn't just scifi its cyberpunk, lets get elitist hierarchy going people.

    If the mass IRO buy happens with individual shipping at the price they claim I'll probably be in. The chances of me being involved rise exponentially if the paint scheme is unique and gawdy.
