Yeargh - I agree. The show was definitely not worthy of the $13 cover. I got in for designing a ginormous route-map for the A.R.C. booth and staffing it for three hours on saturday afternoon... dang man, I don't even know if I believe in bikelanes.

Anywho, due to my characteristic sporadic internet-ness and a psychotic work week, I lament not having realized that a pod see below of y'all were going to be attending - I would have relished the chance to meet some of ye.

Instead, I ended up acting as a crutch for my friend Brian who got food poisoning off of those foul-assed mini-donuts they were peddling in the south-east corner of the place. Vile.

That said, it wasn't all bad - the best deal in the place was (racer sportif?) selling off pairs of rubino pro slicks for $70... cheaper than a pair of the poopier (but still damned fine) rubino intrepids from Urbane that I've been subsisting on. I needed new rubber, so I gobbeld that right up. Maybe it's placebo, but i think they're a mite more supple...

hey shiznaz, if you haven't installed that phil bb yet, is there any chance that you could hook me up with a measurement? I'm curious about the internal diameter of the adjusting cup, as I've got a vintage EDCO bb that had an adjustable-chainline design (ie. two adjustng cups like the phil or miche units), but I had to have the cups machined out of the frame that the bb came with, as the whole affair was seized into the frame. I've been wondering for a while if the phil cups could accommodate the Edco cartridge...

Thanks!

Hey Oscar, how are you doing?
I think that I will do the niagara ride again this year either the over night one or the same day "Hairshirt" if I get a decent amount of training in the week or so before.

Because we all know the Chinese don't ride bikes. Besides this is the T-Dot that don't matter a whit. It was nice metting you guys too , and yes the coffee was the best part of the whole ting, the show definately lacked IMHO.

Cramerotti alert.... I looked at this puppy that's been whinning in my basement a little closer and it's a 48 I'm pretty sure, so that means, IT'S TOO DAMED SMALL!!!!

Do I strip it and make look a little cuter in hopes of a sale/trade? I still should work that busted seat post out of it.

So how long will can I expect to be out of commission for? I am seriously bored, and it has only been 4 days. Codene is my friend though.

Well, I waited about a month before I started riding again, and then I realized that riding didn't really irritate it anyway. But obviously there are lots of variables. But, I'd rather take it easy than risk making things worse.

So, what's left? Looks pretty complete to me! Although you mentioned getting a front brake. I can't remember, did you tell me that you know Urbane has the 105 brakes on sale? I know you want something in black.

percocet's are friendlier

how many did you break? or crack (fractured). I fractured 2 around my left back closer to my spine. It was 4 weeks before I could sleep comfortably in bed and about 6 or 8 weeks before I could raise my arms to put a non-button type shirt on.

Darkmother,

Somnabulant and I were wondering about your absence during the show. While we were at the dirt course we saw a guy (avec full face helmet) tearing around w/a spoke card on his rear wheel and assumed that was just you taking down punks all incognito.

Heal up quick(ish), man. I hope you feel better soon,

- eyefloater

PS. Sweep, niiice.

ouch. that pretty much sums it up. i got to the show late on sunday (3pm-ish) and probably missed everyone. i think all the deals were gone at that point too. i was looking for a pair of dominators and nuthin'. i was surprised that the velodrome in london (forest city?) didn't have a booth. it also amused me to no end how all the bmx kiddies were dressed EXACTLY the same way. dress code code must've been in effect.

Forest City did indeed have a booth....in the eastern section where all the club stuff was. I was surprised as well at the lack of good deals. If you want a $10,000 carbon time trial bike this is the place. Otherwise it kind of blew chunks.

Forest city did have a booth (I got their brochure). and yes, all the 14 year old BMX kids are funny. They travel in small packs and talk really loud.

Just one, on my lower left side, mabye 6 inches from my spine. I think it is broken right across, b/c I can hear it grinding and shifting around when I move (kind of makes me want to puke just thinking about it). Anyway, it is not that bad, most of the time, I am just bored from sitting around all day.

I was kind of hoping you'd say I'll be good in 2 weeks, oh well

On a tangent, I hate the TTC with every ounce of my tortured being. I took it to work this morning, and I don't think I can face taking it home. I think I will ride tomorrow.
