    Hrm, yeah, I haven't seen anything going on in his Queen street joint in like 8 months and I cycle by there every day. Didn't someone mention in this thread that he had something going on in Yorkville?

    Yes, George is completely on the up and up and loves bike. We both had a good headshake at the lovely little Moulton he has where someone welded a top tube to it (which he'd since cut off). Makes me weep. He actually did have a few bikes for sale there, last I was by. An interesting little Raleigh Automatic folder was one that caught my eye, but now that I have some $ again, I may go back and look at that Moulton.... He does have quite a few parts, but in my experience not a lot of road stuff. Still it's a nice experience to go by for a visit. He's usually there around noon 'til 2, then after 5-5:30.s

    And on the bike side, I bought a Fuji track bike for my partner, then she dumped me... so think carefully.

    I have purchased 3 bikes for my g.f. 1 sweet classic cruiser, 1 budget mtn bike and a hybrid. She is still with me but only rides them on the trainer. So go ahead and buy away...just be sure she will never ride it and all is good.

    Yup, that's the one. It's actually the third one in under a year within about 100 yards of my front door. The first was an "execution" at the side of a building a few doors down. This time it was apparently just a superficial wound to the arm. It was just some stupid kids makin' a name for themselves.

    Sadly having grown up around this stuff and buried a number of my own friends for the same stupidity, I was completely unfazed by the whole thing and was more put off by the late night giving a video statement - I was in until 3am. We gave notice when we woke up the next morning. So if anyone knows of any 2 bedrooms in a nice tree lined neighbourhoods.... let a brutha know

    Now, onto this significant other bike thing. I was literally going to look at a new ride for my lady today. The reason being she's been riding my old trials bike - just a stock conversion - but the back wheel is in some serious peril and I don't feel good about her riding it anymore. I was thinking simple Urbanite. But now I'm hearin' all this bad juju talk and I'm spooked. Maybe she's gettin' rollerskates.

    Nothing specific for you, but it's nice up here on Sorauren.

    Re: Bike for the girlfriend.

    Careful! If she likes it you're gonna have to budget to buy two of everything when it comes time for new toys.

    Hey, I used to live on Sorauren. In the loft building just south of the one that's currently under contruction. That was quite a while ago though. That's how I discovered sweet, sweet Mitzi's.

    Mitzi's is OK... but I prefer what comes from my own kitchen (and it doesn't cost $35 for breakfast for 2!)

    amen to dat. althought it's not bad to splurge once in awhile. morning glory near king/parliament is nice.
    i bought my s.o an old green italian folder w/coaster brake. she loves it and i'm not in the dog house yet. having said that probably bought the juju on.

    I've hooked all of my girlfriends up with bikes, mostly used bikes that I've found cheap and fixed up a bit. The nicest was a Kona Lava Dome for 10$ at a TTC auction, what a great bike that was.

    Yeah, Sorauren is great, I lived on that street about 20 years ago and it was still pretty safe back then. I used to deliver newspapers to those lofts when I was a kid; Somnambulent, maybe you owe me a christmas tip

    That old love song? I hear that story again and again. My GF is still bikeless, and I think we both like it that way.

    The one I got for my wife has made the trek from one side of the basement to the other.

    Yes please. If you know any undergrads let them know that we need votes this Wed/Thurs/Fri for bikechain. We're re-running the levy thing.

    No graduate students allowed to vote though... I'll be manning a voting booth in SS on Thursday. Uh let me check the time.

    Out of curiosity, is Bikechain actually part of U of T? Students pay in to it? If so, that is really cool and I wish they had had something like that when I was there. Cycling is a big part of student life and any help or training the university can provide in regards to safety or mechanics is great.

    And yeah, the transit system sucks but man, I was really tempted to get off the bike and jump on a streetcar today, I haven't felt it this cold since forever. But the streets were really quiet for me, are all the cagers staying home because of the killer-ice from the Tower? The Gardiner has never been closed for this sort of thing before either, what a weird winter.
