I've been by there when a bunch of cyclists were just standing around waiting. I always wondered what was going on, but I just continued riding home. Interesting...

PS. Op and Offhoff. Clearly the only way to settle this is a street luge competition, but Offhoff has to use cartidge bearings because they suck so much he'll have a huge handicap.

For elementary and secondary school.

Better late cake than the banana smoothies thay all made. I hate bananas.

Ok, I gotta jump in here. If anybody has (or knows or anyone who has) those Briko Stinger sunglasses that Cipo is sporting in that picture (from the link above), PLEASE sell them to me. I happen to think those are the most badass shades aver made.

Also, when in NYC a couple months ago, I went by Trackstar and they had a wicked tshirt with Merckx's face silkscreened on, and underneath the words 'Eddy is watching'. I loved that.

I put my brooks on my commuter so now I can break it in on the way to and from work. Its already more comfortable than my regular commuting saddle and its still hard as a rock. Now my bike is red, yellow, blue, white, green (the saddle) and black. Just FYI.

I know what you mean. I feel the same way about Briko Zen's. I checked ebay after reading your post and there's a pair of Zen's there, but thankfully I have no money to squander...

I would hesitate to compare the use of the english language on this board to the mastery of an F1 driver. I'd say more like a tourist on rented Rollerblades climbing an escalator.

Just got home from the Bloor Cinema (saw "This Film Is Not Yet Rated".. good times).. what a lovely night for a ride. The temperature isn't too cold, pretty calm winds and the snow is making everything seem oh so quiet. I kinda wish I hadn't just come straight home!

As a side note, my gf got a taxi home while I rode, and as per usual I showed up at the house at the same time as her. I wasn't even hurrying. I got a red light at Bathurst right away so I assumed they were long gone.

I have band practice now every Friday night, so no more CM for me. If spending the end of a work week drinking beers and making The Rock makes me not a real man, than I welcome my life as pseudo-man.

Due to lack of interest I am passing on the torch for organizing a trip to Forest City. Somebody else do it. What gives? I thought a bunch of you guys wanted to go?

Danhalen: My interest hasn't waivered one bit. I have no problem organizing this trip, but it just means y'all will have to wait until the outing suits my schedule. I'll tell you right now that if this falls on my shoulders, I'll most likely follow through sometime between right....now, and the 15th of Feb.

Ok well I don't mind waiting for a bit. I don't mind organizing either, I just got frustrated that no one was responding.

Similar... I have class from 5:30 to 8:00 on Friday evenings so no CM for me until classes are done. As its a community development class, maybe I can talk them into doing a "rolling session"

Anybody looking for a conversion frame? http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/268020993.html too teeny for me...

Hey operator, did you get that thing I sentcha?
