Tonight I raced my friends from King and Dufferin to Pauper's at Bloor and Bathurst. I was on my bike and they were in my friend's car. When they arrived I was at the bar, drink in hand talking to the bartender. And they thought they would win. Poor fools. Darn Tootin'. Damn Skippy.

Heheheheh @ the first statement. And man, that bike is the OWNAGE. I really can't think of a better bike i'd like to ride around the city. Well besides the part where my pants got caught between the chain and chainring even though it had the metal chainring guard.

They both got 2006 models...that is a 2007. Pretty much the same bike tho.
So I just had a customer come in the shop. She at 68 can't comfortably ride her dads old "racing" bike anymore and was looking for something more comfortable and less racy. She is Belgian and has been riding her dads old "racer" which upon further conversation I found out is fixed! She was astonished that this type of bike is so popular again... "thats all we used to ride back home" BLESS!!

They aren't slicks.. just not enough resolution/contrast in the pics.

For those people who need to dress up at work, how do you manage riding? I am getting the jonze to start riding as much as possible, save some TTC fair and get burn off my winter fat. But, I need to dress 'nicely' for work.

What do people do?

Carry your work clothes and change when you get to work? You might get a few strange looks when changing in the restroom.

My commute is pretty short... I just wear my work clothes. When it's super hot and stanky I might throw on a jersey or some other sort of poly shirt (I have some tshirts from MEC too) and/or wear shorts. I just get changed in a bathroom stall in the office. Depends on what you mean by "nicely" though as well. Like, I don't have to wear a shirt/tie or anything.

I am in a shirt and tie workplace. However, I do have my own office. My thinking now is to leave a bunch of clothes in my office. But I don't know if other people have better ideas.
