On a completely unrelated note, I found a decent 700 rear wheel last night, matrix rim I think with shimano hub. Seems to be inperfect shape, needs a cassette freehub now, but anyone want it? Going to Bike Pirates on Sat otherwise.

Odd, I found a gold Schwinn in the garbage tonight, people throw out the strangest things!

If that wheel isn't spoken for already, I can use it. PM me if that is cool, thanks!

Pyze, I may have some car junk. The ex is dropping of a few bins: jack stands, timing gun and a few other things if you want. I'll let you know what's here tomorrow. If anyone wants some largish rubbermaid roughtotes, let me know. I have about a half dozen or so to give away.

I remember coming back on the local tin can air from the Bahamas with a girl who got run off the road. One side of her body was a huge bruised road rash... on her honeymoon. New husband must have been baying at the moon. Yes, bikes + islands=road kill.

And one bubble was missed:

Out of curiousity..how much did the Mastercraft digital verniers cost ya?They look exactly like my no-name calipers.
They were tirtyfo ninenine. I am sure that they are exaxtly the same too, we have another unbranded one in the shop that is.

HAHAHA oh Roger....

Now that I am at the downtown shop I don't have to see him as often. errr get to see his lovely face?..
ahah

Sometimes he can be too much.

Day one... zero tools missing

Oh dude... that was me that offered you tools on Yonge St, just south of College.

Man those trimmed down risers FTW! So much fun. And all it costs is looking a bit like a Mash *****. I guess I'll need to get the official Mash Phil hub and white cog now... Or, not.

anyone up for a mtn bike ride in the Don tonight? I'll likely be heading there for around 6:30 or 7:00. If there's any interest I'll post a more accurate time later this afternoon.

No idea if anyone here would have this kind of info, but does anyone have a favorite source for piercing jewelry? I need new plugs, and I just want plain black acrylic, but I can't seem to find any locally. Plus every piercing website I've been on looks like it was set up by a 14 year old in 1998... doesn't really instill e-commerce confidence.
