Fridays are usually no good because I have lunch with my coworkers. If anything changes I'll post. I assume you'll be online before then?

I'd looking to go like a royal metallic blue. If that's possible and the turn around is decent - who wants to be riding' the Stumpy SUV in this weather! - I may be in.

And I'm in for both Unwin Sprints this summer and CM this eve. Man, this summer's gonna rule.

@Brad: last time I broke my elbow I was told I would be getting one of those lovely upgrades. Not the same one, I need a whole new joint I believe - don't we all.

I've got some passes to The Flying Scotsman. They're double passes so pair up and get in contact if you'd like one. Please don't ask for one if it's just you or if you're not sure you can make it because my supply is really limited.

I know I've seen some info on this here before, but who around town is recommended for minor frame work? I need some rack boss eyelets added to dropouts. I'd have a crack at it myself except it's aluminum and so requires to be welded.

Alu frames cannot be re-welded. They are heat-treated after welding for strength and this heat-treatment will not allow further welding. If the drop-out is big and beefy enough you could just drill 2 holes in the dropouts and have em tapped...prolly the only way. I did this to my IRO to install a rear fender. Clamps suck a$$.

anybody interested in Tai Chi? I'm going for a 'free introductory course' noon to 2:00 pm this saturday. I want to learn some basics so I can pass some time in the evenings on my tour and release some of the tension built up from being in the saddle all day (and freak out all the squares at the campgrounds). Its at Wu's Tai Chi Chuan Academy between richmond and adelaide at 76 Stafford Street.

I gotta do this sometime:

Black Metal Brunch @ Graffiti's 170 Baldwin, at Kensington, 416-506-6699. Planet Kensington may be dead, but the legendary punk club's superb Black Metal Brunch lives on in this Elvis-fixated Market watering hole. Warning: unless you consider Florida grind-core blasted at maximum volume dinner music, bring ear plugs. Best: from grunge gourmet chef Linda Dawson's (ex Southern Accent, Bellair Café) rotating card, her creditable vegetarian take on eggs Benny topped with shiitakes and heavily yolked hollandaise; shredded duck, sun-dried tomato, scallion and bocconcini omelette sided with 'homies" (regular and sweet potato home fries); remarkably light blintzes overstuffed with lemony ricotta and dressed with thickened sour cream and marinated cherries. Complete brunches for $16 per person, including all taxes, tip and a pint. Average main $7. Open Sunday 11 am to 6 pm. Licensed. Access: one step at door, small washrooms on same floor. Rating: NNNN

Anyone want to trade a 42t 130bcd for a 44t 130bcd chainring? Rode it last night and didn't like the uber low gear ratio, brand spanking new otherwise...

I racked my brain and I can't remember, I think it was a 44T or maybe 42T. The ring I was just using was a 46T and I got a 42T and they both suck (too high/too low) with a 16 rear.

You don't like 46x16? That's what I was running for the past 2 years. Most of the time I enjoyed it. It just got slightly mashy if I was tired and/or drunk. I just switched to 48x18 when I swapped out my cranks though.

I thought 46/16 was the ideal zen combo. I want to switch to 42/15 is I can my 15 cog from my s/s hub.
