There's a couple of guys who go to the Saskatoon Cycles meetings who are Critical Mass organizers, but it's not a main goal of Saskatoon Cycles - we're an advocacy group first. Next June we're...

SO has an '09 Elite, and loves it. IMO it's well set-up for the price, and the colour scheme isn't flashy or overly logo-ified. (Although I do prefer the 09 Elite to the '10.) Can't speak to the...

The company I work for isn't big enough to have the sign contract for the dept. of highways here, so I can't say whether or not they have them ready to go. Legally speaking, I would imagine that they...

Hi. Sign shop employee here. I'm going to sidestep the debate about installing a sign in the first place for a moment and offer you some input.

If you want to get this made somewhere, you have a...

I used to, a lot - commuted to classes on them, and buzzed around trails after I finished (gotta love taking a humanities major at university.) I don't really know why I stopped - I guess I got more...

Ha! That's awesome. Although with all the flat tires and stupid, preventable bang-ups I've had, biking has proven to be far more expensive this summer. :notamused:

If this is directed at me, sorry, I should have worded that better. Personally, I don't care whether or not someone is a 'freeloader'. However, I live in an (ostensibly) socialist country, so YMMV.

I do realize this is not what you said. What you said, is that cyclists shouldn't get infrastructure because they don't pay enough for it. It has been proven, though, that with more infrastructure...

However, do not kick children or mace them with bear spray if they try to bite you. It won't end well.

To me, that seems like a route I wouldn't want to take - on and off-ramps with 50 mph traffic is no joke. What's the speed limit on the road you're on? Is there any alternative? (Where I live, bikes...

I've seen the Minnehaha bags (http://www.minnehahabags.com/) around, but I don't own any, so I can't speak to their quality. Classic looks, and cheaper than Brooks, though.

Personally, I wouldn't want to work for someone who expected me to keep their porn viewing at work a secret. Getting angry at the person who exposed you, as it were, isn't very mature.
