    Hey, is there a Toronto swap-meet for bicycles? I recall one in the annex last summer but I couldn't make it, where could I find information regarding bike-swaps? Thanks.

    The guy in the front with the white shirt (who are you?). I seen him around downtown several times after that. We had beers at the Green Room.

    ******bag that ticketed the guy on the trike. Later saw that ticketed dude doing some helmet promotion thing on university campus a month or two later.

    operator:
    yeah, I've talked to that guy too. When I bought my bike he was actually looking at it as well. Then on that CM I saw him and we chatted for a few minutes. I don't know his name or anything though.

    I used this orange stuff called Citristrip. I did the stripping in a basement with no ventilation, and it just mildly smells like oranges. I actually still have half the giant bottle, so if you want it, it's yours.

    On another note... damn, I got downtown an hour too late to catch CM. Hope you guys are having fun.

    oh! I gotta borrow that citristrip after t-jammer's done!
    btw... isn't stripping w/ no ventilation hazrdous to your health? I like citristrip cause it smells good compared to all the other nasty smelling stuff.

    I actually lied about no ventilation, I left the door open periodically to let the fumes air out. But it was hella cold. So not too often. Anyways, the point is that it smells like ooooranges! So any takers with the citristrip? I will deliver it to you if it's downtown.

    curiously, you ever know any guys named yves orton (i think he rode for starship and usually had a fatty nearby) or paul andrews?
