    I often have people ask me about my bikes and/or make positive comments.. then again, suits are not the same as academics/Uni staff.

    8 button up dress shirts
    5 pairs trousers
    2 fancy sweaters
    5 T shirts
    9 golf shirts
    2 pairs socks
    1 tie
    1 blazer
    1 overcoat
    2 pairs leather shoes
    1 belt
    1 box baby wipes
    1 bottle febreeze
    1 comb
    (seriously I have all this within 3 feet of me)

    I never ride in my work clothes because I generally pay to have them drycleaned or laundered downstairs. The less physical activity the more wearings I can get out of each garment. They also have time to 'mellow' as it were in between wearings as I have so many to cycle through. Wearing a fresh t-shirt under them helps immensely too.

    I change in my cubicle and haveonly been walked in on a couple of times. Changing in a washroom stall every day is not something you want to do... My coworkers ten to avoid my office until about a half hour after I get in specifically to minimize seeing me without a shirt on.

    We have really nice bike racks in the basement that lock up both wheels with shackles and hand the bike vertically against the wall. Its near the security people and has a camera pointed at it so there basically no way my bike could get stolen during work.

    Shane McGowan would be proud. Although I think he is more suited to a Colgate or Crest toothpaste ad.

    Has anyone ever had luck buying a used old bike from a garage sale or Goodwill? Suggestions on the best way to do it?

    try leaving some collateral so you can take it for a quick test spin? look closely at each part and check for damage. do a calculation in your head of what it will cost to get it running vs. what the price is. never seen/noticed bikes at goodwills in toronto that i can recall, but yaaaarrrdddsaaaallllee season is upon us!


    ps. did anyone else notice the strange mist that was rolling in off the lake? it seems like it was rolling in from the south-west, but it might be burning off now. i thought it was just dust from a construction site until i rode for a while and realised it seemed like i was going through a cloud. anyone with a good view of the lake?
    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    Silly mainlanders.. It's called "fog". It's actually quite humid out there, plus there's a breeze more or less off the lake. http://www.bikeforums.net/newreply.p...eply&p=4116554

    I actually just got back from a client meeting with a research group that studies aerosols in the air in Southern Ontario and when we were getting a little tour they checked the instruments and said it was kinda nasty out there right now. Lots of little particles clogging our lungs.. yum! Then I found out the girl giving the tour rides cyclocross. Good stuff.

    also: I just saw a guy come out of the Faculty of Architecture building and get on a dark grey sloping-TT pursuit frame. I wasn't close enough to see what it was though. Very clean and shiny... I'm pining for a new fixie. Hurry up Tony!
