    thanks for the heads up, but i'd like to add a caveat (lol); for those who haven't gone to the MEC sale before, it might not be a good thing to do if you're at all claustrophobic. i love buy-the-pound and such, but even i felt a bit uncomfortable all squished in the underground parking lot. and after waiting in line and madly searching through the racks, saw the hour-an-a-half-long line up and went home.

    i'm pretty sure the bike swap has enough sense to be outside though.
    "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'."

    it was underground last year; even the CBN had a booth there selling stuff in the pouring rain. personally, i would avoid it just to avoid the crowds as you say. there are enough used parts between us to keep us all equipt for many years to come. i still think a BF swap is a good idea. or do we pretty much do that already?

    yeah it appears to be in conjunction with the CBN. I worked it two years ago when we were outside in the rain. I don't know why they have to have it with MEC, they'd do fine on their own.

    Sounds good...

    Make sure you download the 1.3 patch and updated punkbuster version. Finding a valid key code is the only tricky part...

    you probably already know that jitensha sells em. they apparently don't reply to emails though..it's been a few months/emails. there's a seller on ebay that constantly has them although he only puts up 1 or 2 at a time (mostly the hammered style in both 35 and 40mm). they go anywhere from $60-90US. figure to get nailed by inflated shipping and duty. keith told me to check out bike specialties so they're probably a good bet. i'll let you know if i can get through to jitensha so we can save a bit on shipping.
