Paging Dr Benway paging Dr Benway...

So, on a totally different subject, Danhalen and I went to have some Chinese post safety session on Spadina. It was tasty and delicious so slightly tipsy, very bloated and tired I want to ride home. Go to my bike slip in my key, turn and then pull out less then a full key. That's right my Krypto Mini Evo key snapped off into the lock. I managed to get the lock open but if it had happened to me during work I have no idea what I would have done. So now I'm writing the angriest email to krypto imaginable. I'm still shocked it happened!

Well from watching the TV video the reporter had about 50 pounds of makeup on so that would have effected her balance.

from the citynews report:

"It's a sign for cyclists to be weary, it's also a sign for pedestrians to be weary and cars to be weary of cyclists."

That happens so often man, I wouldn't bother with the angry letter. I have one working key left for my krypto mini, the others snapped or twisted badly. Just send them an email with your serial number and information and they should send you some new keys

The part of the key that snapped is still stuck in the lock. And I like being an angry consumer, I'll be sure to get at least a new lock out of the deal.

i was gonna ride half of critical mass and then split off and go to the safety meeting but there was such a good turn out at cm and i was having a good time so i stayed. i know it's slow and all but you can't tell me that riding through the eaton center wouldn't be fun!

I believe that was the third and final for the evening. Thanks to all who ended up hanging out - and for the donations of materials, you will be receiving reimbursements I assure you. Oh yeah and I believe we've found a new hang out.

Hey Lord Foo, are you still looking for shoes? I have a pair of Axo vipers in size 45 that I'll let go cheap.

Zippered, I went by the transport depot this morning but didn't see a bunch of bikes next to the dumpsters. Was it in the yard proper?
