    Cool, I've never ridden a funny bike and only seen a couple in Toronto. There is a courier with a Concorde (I think) funny bike, it looks neat.

    My favourite CL post of the day so far:

    http://toronto.craigslist.org/bik/282075736.html

    $650 for a CLASSIC 1978 Fuji touring bike. It has very little rust.
    I rode CanadaWide for Cancer in 2006! I rode 6850km and raised over $110 000 for kids with cancer. Check out the journal at: http://www.cyclingforcancer.ca

    650c tubulars!? What are you.....a masochist? While 650 has become much more popular 650c tubulars are going to be either 1, expensive or 2, really hard to find. Do yerself a favour and stick with the clinchers.
    A quick catalogue perusal has found 1 tubular in 650...Vittoria Corsa EVO....$128 retail

    if you liked that you should see Ryan Leech's DVD "Manifesto" 180 bunny hops from train track to train track, riding along loose chains and DOWN handrails, not across. I'd be willing to lend it out for maybe, oh, i don't know, a pass to the bike show? (big wink )

    I particularly like the revealing photos of the rack and pedals which are, apparently, not included.

    Whats wrong with a little tread? Have you let the OCP get to you? I think treads are good.

    And got 650c blue velocity aerohead clinchers in 32h / tubes & tires for free. Even threw in spokes cut to the length of low flange chris king hubs. Btw, useless spokes are good for soldering.

    Time to build a funny bike

    Lastly, anyone have any thoughts on the 30 day VIA rail all Canada pass? Its about $500 + tax (student/economy). I'm thinking of going with my bike possibly this summer or next.
    You buy the most random obscure bike stuff man... Did you find a twin for that single sugino 75 crank arm yet?

    Ah, well the 650c tubular rims were a request from a friend from switzerland. So those are going to him. I'm surprised Urbane actually had one.
    The clinchers I'll keep around to build something cool with.
    And nope. I haven't found a left side replacement yet, and probably will never.
    The drive side is already beat to hell and had the logos sanded off so nothing will ever match them.
    Most of the weird stuff I get comes either free or with minimal cost
    physics hertz.

    But why have treads at all? They don't do anything on the road...

    They ostensibly help with traction in the wet, and can help with traction if there is any sort of loose substrate on the surface (which is most of the time). Can you think of a reason not to have them, other than some impossible to measure decrease in rolling resistance? The GPs are lighter and better made than the rubinos, so I'd not get too preoccupied with tread. Do they even make smooth tires? The only 'treadless' tires I have seen just have a fine knurled pattern to them; its still tread. It works as a great tire wear indicator too.

    Slicks are great in perfect riding conditions, I had perfect riding conditions once I think. I wrecked a sexy conti racing slick with a pebble of glass when I was messin', split it across the tyre...never again.

    Some other brand will most likely work. Elite has easy to get replacements. What is the diameter of the roller and does the band run on the outer circumfrence of the roller? If they are 3" diameter and run on the outside then an Elite band should fit.

    Yes to outer...slight groove carved into back/front roller...I'll measure out the roller.
    How do they do inner, band connecting the axles?
