I'd be down if I didn't have to go to bed within the next 15 minutes. If tomorrow goes as forecast it's going to suck. Unless you're one of those people who likes thunder storms.

They're great when you don't have to ride for 8 hours a day in it.

it's all about waterproof breathables and booties (and full fenders normally, but the urbanite is temporarily out of order)

I busted an axle in a brand new pair of those in 5 months. I would stay away.

Really? I think those are the pedals I rode for years on my mountain bike in the early/mid 90s before I switched to clipless. Except not purple ano.. Then again, I was probably about 135lbs back then as well.

I was only around 185 when I busted em. It might have been a one off but I wouldn't risk putting em on a fixie. Busted pedal axle + Fixed = New grill.

Full fenders rule but damn, I hate cold rain. That large Fiori listed on CL today is kinda nice and 100bucks is a good deal. I have too many bikes though, someone grab it.

drip drip drip.


Hey Dan, pretty much all home hardwares sell a full range of electrical tape colours. I went through a phase one year where I'd make all my art projects for school out of different kinds of tape so I have some experience sourcing it. And a baguette is a loaf of french bread. you can fit about 5 of them in the cable loop of old style brake levers.

I'd be down with that! 2 would be great, one would be cool too!

Plus, I need to bring you back that rear brake, it wasn't long enough.
