    Hahaha. Noooooooo.
    People are on their own for that bit. I suggest downloading a spoke length calculator. I used the DT swiss chart to measure them out. I'll have already calculated and selected the spoked when I get there.

    Thinking is nothing. Doing is everything. But I think it might help the understanding of wheels more. It would also help truing practice.

    I'll be doing lacing (helps when replacing a spoke), tensioning, fixing hops and wobble while building (helpful for fixing actual hops and wobbles) and that sort of stuff. I'll also outline all the mistakes to watch out for that I learned while building my first few wheels.

    Hmmm... I just realized I have everything I need at home to make a multitude of martini style drinks...

    I see espresso martinis in my future. And after reading this short James Bond passage I have got to try this:
    "A dry martini," [Bond] said. "One. In a deep champagne goblet."
    "Oui, monsieur."

    "Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large, thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?"

    "Certainly, monsieur." The barman seemed pleased with the idea.

    "Gosh, that's certainly a drink," said Leiter.

    Bond laughed. "When I'm...er...concentrating," he explained, "I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made. I hate small portions of anything, particularly when they taste bad. This drink's my own invention. I'm going to patent it when I can think of a good name."

    -Ian Fleming, Casino Royale


    Woohoo for grain alcohol!

    If you guys at bike chain don't have one, then yes I will be.

    Question is, who is bringing the beers? There were beers last time I did a clinic.

    Cool I'm planning on going tonight too. Dan Reid is going too, you might know him, he would have been around when you lived with James they have been friends since they were really young. Do you want to meet up first or just meet there?

    Cycle Therapy's been doing the same thing, just clearing out all the '06 stuff before all the "new shiny" comes in. Bikes at cost, apparel at cost, etc. ... at this point in the year it's basically just money of our's that's sitting there on the sales floor when it could be doing something useful. Gotta get rid of it for what we paid so we can have access to that cash again. It's basically just a move to increase cash flow in the off season and get rid of the stuff that won't be perceived as "the latest and greatest" come spring.

    I would like to! I should add a caveat to that as well: I have no experience . What are the requirements for a polo bike? If I don't have something suitable, right now I'm not in a position to be getting another bike.

    Requirements, not so much ... just put together a mallet and you should be good to go (apparently ski pole + random wacking bit works well). I've never played either, and I don't think anyone around will be sitting the bar very high.

    A disposable set of wheels is whats required for polo....we used to play in MTL over 20 years ago. Virtually everyone who has played has folded at least one front wheel. Other than that wear your helmet....a mallet to the back of the heard or the face isn't unheard of either. Gets a little rough on the pitch. Smaller frames = better one handed control.

    Bikepolo?

    Form a team, the BF or whatever you name it team and start gathering gear & practicing.

    There will be a series to compete in this spring/summer, with one of the highlights including a city-partnered bikepolo tourney during Bikeweek 2007 featuring teams from Canada & the US, including the formidable machine from Ottawa, which boasts the current North American champion team.

    I think it looks silly as hell, but a lot of silly looking things are fun to play, so I'm going to try it, maybe even sober, & if it's fun I'll be playing too.

    If you guys seriously want to play I'll be sure to post contact info etc as it becomes available. The Bikeweek event dates & venue will be established within the next few weeks.
