This thread got better since we made friends with Philly.

Props to "A short history of the Philly-Toronto rivalry" thread. Brill.

super off topic: I know you're a bunch of bike riding hippies, but does anyone know a good autobody person? My buddy got into a fender bender this evening (with another motorist )

Interestingly, I just sold my car for $250 to a guy who does autobody and apparently free home appraisals! Unfortunately, I didn't feel safe this evening so I'm on the bottom third of Finca Antigua Crianza 2003 ($14.95 at your local vintages) and I'm feeling much safer, but unable to find his card. I will assay to do this tomorrow. Incidentally, a *very* nice red.

You guys have a good setup over there. I've been meaning to check it out for a while. The fact that you guys did a brake workshop was a bonus, since I got some pointers for my Guerciotti build. Nice!

Op can you once and for all clear up if bikechain is UofT students only or if its open to all? Sorry if this is a repeat but I'm still curious and can't find the answer easily
