I count 15 ahead of me. 14 bikes only? I think turning up early to steal a spot might be bad form. Maybe I'll come and rivet Pete's chain when he rips it off, and then come for coffee. PS If you're ahead of me on the list, and not going, can you let me know? PPS Hey Alan, I see you're 15. How about ...

You're worried about fruity? Have you seen our uniforms? All that's missing is crop tops and head bands...

How many can you take Lisa?

Edit, oops, I see it now. Can I have a spot?

Found the image. Eugene Christophe had to forge a repair on his fork in the 1913 Tour. Plus he got a 10 minute penalty for allowing a boy to operate the bellows for him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Christophe And we think we're doing well when we change a flat or a chain. I wonder what ...

Tell me about it Jairus. I saw a bike at the UVic tri sale that was similar vintage to mine, for $259. I'm exagerating a bit, as mine at least have sti, but I think we spend more on coffee in a month than my bikes are worth. Ah well, you could always keep it and join the retro grouches like me and w...

Actually, I 've been looking for one of a cyclist in the 190? tour de france working the bellows, fixing his own bike in a blacksmith shop. But this will do until then. Thx Brian!

Lance had it wrong. It is about the bike.

wanted: Mavic MA2 silver rim 36 hole, or similar

Looking for a very low profile rim to replace an Mavic MA2 which is wearing out on the brake track. Preferably silver. (The existing spokes are too long for Mavic Open Pros, for example, and I'm too cheap to toss out perfectly good stainless spokes. I need the low profile to re-use the spokes. Ambro...

Well that was a bit different than I saw in my head. But it seemed most of the two groups had a hard ride by the looks of faces at the stop. What's the feeling? As we discussed, I think refinements might include smaller groups, or at least have the leader look back for dropped riders as they swing o...

Like the ride Friday, in any break, there are riders who are strong at the beginning and those who need a minute to recover, some strong on hills, others on flats, others suck till there's a sprint. But break groups still stay together in races, even if they're not all working, and especially if the...

Thanks guys. I was thinking two groups out of whoever is there. Maybe chosen by all those wearing a colour for example, or those facing east at the meeting spot vs those facing west. (Definitely not two captains and picking teams. Oh the elementary school horror. Why the hell do you think I took up ...

Foxes and Hounds game?

Dylan, John and I had fun jamming today. Thanks for letting us and still including us in coffee. What’s appealing about it is seeing if you can go hard, leave enough to get on the back, recover, and pull again. When it’s harder for longer, you have to pay more attention to the pace, length of pulls,...
