    Yep, pretty hairy out there today!

    Went out on College and back on Dumbass...both about the same conditions wise. Might as well take the whole lane 'cause you have to ride so close to the tracks nobody can pass anyhow. On the plus side, as others have said nobody seems to be too upset about it either (wonder how much that will change come rush hour) Had to put my foot down a couple times, but no crashes.

    My new fenders work very well so I'm happy bout that. If I'm gonna keep riding in this crap I should definitely get a front derailleur that will let me have a granny gear, or at the very least put a lower range cassette on the back. 38X21 is my lowest gear and that was pushing it through a couple tough spots.

    Yea, this new moving-the-ball/fast breaking strategy has really worked out for them this year. Bosh is, is, I don;t even have a word for how good he is this year. WAs it last month...team of the month, player of the month(Bosh) AND rookie of the month. When has one team gotten all three? I should see if I can get some seats from work.

    wow, what a ride today, on the weekend I replaced my knobbies with some 23c slicks, much better, even in the snow.

    I took Dundas and had to take the lane, drivers actually seemed to be pretty considerate.

    I had a nice fall on the way home, hit a rough spot and started violently sliding side to side and lost it, there was a big gap in the traffic though so I had plenty of time to get up and brush myself off.

    AWESOME!

    Maybe that's what I could use that new Dura-Ace crank of mine for!
    (It's for sale if anyone wants it!)

    Charley, I don't know if your ride/soiree got off the ground, but if so, sorry I couldn't make it.

    I'm so proud. Today I finished my seatpost polishing project. After sanding off the black paint, I turned a scratched up (from sanding the paint off ) cloudy-looking seatpost into a mirror-finished shiny piece of awesomeness. You can *literally* see your reflection in it! I tried to take a picture but I think it would take daylight to really show how shiny it is. Plus I'm guessing no one really cares. It's a seatpost. The novelty will probably wear off anyway.

    Along with the shininess due to salt.

    Is that a dura ace track crank or a double converted? Looks kind of off on a fixed gear. Would be nice on a roadie though.

    I think it is a track crank. If the guy has the money to have a custom made C-dale track bike with a Hed disc on the back and Spinergy front, he can probably afford to get a real track crank. Sweet looking bike but the flames kinda ruin it for me.

    edit: I stand corrected, here is the latest Dura Ace track crank from the Shimano site:

    See the height of the head tube? You gonna tell him you don't like his flames? I'm not, he's a BIG one....

    Duppy, as for us doing better, yo we totally could be, but after soooo many years of not being able to admit you like ball because your city sucks so bad at it, I'm very pleased with this year's team. Even if we get punked from the playoffs.

    Niiice ride in this morning, caught a 5-ton going down Yogne up by Front and had it suck me last couple blocks to the office, once I was in a good drafting position, I didn't have to pedal once.

    pretty sure he's riding the latest D-A Road cranks, the 7800.
