thanks for that. it's not the most well-designed, but it's a start. wonder if anything would ever actually come of the complaints? as a community worker, i guess i can't help but scheme about what could be done on a collective level.

Now I know why people keep buying "disposable" bikes.

Me: Your front wheel is damaged beyond ALL repair
Guy: Yeah, how much is that to fix?
Me: Fix? Uh cheaper just to get a new front wheel ~ $40.
Guy: Nah, I can get a whole new bike for $20
Me: ...

His bike was a deathtrap.

Oh that old love song?

I love the:
Me: WOW. Sorry man, I can't do your flat, you fork is bent way back.
Guy: What does the fork have to do with my flat?
Me: It means that if I fix the flat, you are still going to ride away on a death-trap
Guy: Man, I'm late for work, I just need the flat done
Me: Sorry my hands are tied.
Guy: I'm not going to sue. Can't I sign something?
Me: Store policy. I can sell you a tube, and take the wheel off for you
Guy: I don't know how to do a flat
Me:...

I'm, not sure if I will be out on tour or not when this goes down. Doesn't it normally happen late july? If thats the case we might just make it back in time. That would rock. I'd have legs-o-steel by that point too!

edit: damn, I thought it was 2007 too. If I am in Toronto in 2008, I can help out

was the last one at cine studios on queens quay? if so, i was there (not to compete, just tagged along w critical mass) and then proceeded to get my nice raleigh cruiser stolen outside of the elmo 'cuz i was so ga-ga after some boy i forgot to lock it up... d'oh!

hope to actually meet some of you tomorrow, but my knee has been really bothering me this week, so i dunno... i think someone mentioned it'd be ~30 km, right?
