It's was kinda sketchy..BUT..I LOVE being sucked to the curb by the snow. NOT!

I noticed this morning as well, it seems difficult to apply even pressure to the plow blade to the outside edge. I rode most of the way in the drivers' wheel mark in the curb lane because most of the curb lane was hard riding. the drivers' were all cool. I even acted VC today as a nod to the nice drivers today I wasn't gonna thread them if I wasn't willing to pull to the curb to let them pass.

hey meng, don't forget the spanish fly jose calderrrrron! quite the luxury to have a good starting point guard, and another good one coming off the bench. those two consistenly combine for 20-30points, 20+ assists. the raps are averaging something like 24-25 assists/game..that's right up there with the suns.
funny thing: the boo-birds came down like crazy when carter went for 2 free throws..and when he missed both, the place went ape s h i t

Ah hahahahaha.

lol @ pyze

"this kit contains 71 parts for modelers age 10 and over box contains models of four figures and a one bicycle"

The really funny thing is that the pic actually has a singlespeed in it with zip gun bamboo top tubes. I mean does anyone even really bother with making a drawing that's in some way tactically realistic?

For those who like the Raps, the TDSB has a deal for teachers. For games on March 11, 14, April 1 and 13I can get tickets for $21 ( instead of $39), $47 ( $82) and $104 ( $140) Anyone wants let me know. Games are Sonics, Knicks, Bobcats and Pistons.

That's the one I have on my roadie. I foolishly (long story) ordered two, so I have a boxed extra one. If you are building up a roadie and want the crank below cost, just holler at your boy!

It's called a coaster brake and the bamboo is braced to allow the panniers to be mounted as the bike is a "girls bike" with the top tube waaaay down low. Ammo is heavy so bracing is required.

Yeah, I should have said "Here is the latest DA crank from the Shimano site, not the one that he has on his bike so he must have converted a double". It does look really really nice, that DA "saw wheel" crank, I guess that Shimano will make a track version of it eventually.

And yeah, that C-dale is a 63cm frame so the guy is probably about 6'4 so I won't be saying anything bad about his bike (to his face). Big guy, wealthy........maybe it is Tony Robbins?

Whenever I see that guy I can only think about the movie Shallow Hal. Jason Alexander meets him in an elevator...shakes his hand and says " its like shaking a bunch of bananas"

I kinda like em. My fav has to be my old Mavic Areo crank set.... I loved it.


It would thrown down a nice star of light onto the road when you were riding in the sun.
