Wes, i sketched out my high park training route to the best of my abilities on gmaps.

this route takes into account a nice switchback climb and a long steady climb north of the kingsway. it's hard to follow on the map, i'll have to show you some time.

For to give away
1 - 26" XRim SZ by Alex. No axle or cones etc., rear thread-on hub and wheel only. Needs truing etc.
1 - 700 cc Weinmann 519 Rim - solid axle with thread-on hub, newish bearings, needs truing.

Either suitable for a SS beater etc.

Cool, thanks! I'll have to give both of those routes a go sometime.

ps. Just went for a 30 minute spin around downtown and man it's sticky out. Now I'm back at my desk all swampy.

Well as of lately he has posted some amazing photos of great bikes, most of witch did not have females on them.
But the ones that do have females on them well all the better. So self contrived well yes, pointless um hell no & self indulgent um hell yes.
Kind of perv, um hell no.
All in good fun.

So they're going to get a bunch of stray cats and somehow convince them to race simultaneously in 4 different cities? Someone please explain this to me.

Last season at least you could get a 1" Steamroller fork from QBP. For the shops that deal with Marinoni (who stock EVO components), you should take a look at this site for possibilities: http://www.evo.com.tw/

Given that he has a front and rear brake, I suspect skidding and skipping or using his legs in backward action at all is not being done. Sort of begs the question, though.
