Is that a 1/8" cog with a 3/32 chain?
Ya, your chain is the wrong size for that cog. Did you just remove some links from an 8 or 9 speed chain?
So I may be moving onto the Danforth in the new year and once spring hits I think I'm gonna be biking to get around.
Most of my hang out time is usually around Front and Spadina.
I was toying with getting a fixie, but I'm wondering if it'll be a bitch going from the core back up to Danforth as it's uphill.
I didn't want a geared bike because of maintenance issues I've had in the past (all be it they've been shitty bikes). A fixie seem simple and it seems they would have less issues maintenance wise.
i just got back from interbike in las vegas. I've got a whole bunch of photos that i'll post either tonight, or tuesday when i get back from a camping trip.
not too much that really blew my socks off, but the two things i will mention right now are:
Mission Workshop bags, formed by the founders of chrome. incredibly well designed and built messenger backpacks. I tried one on with a 30 pack of beer in it, and it was incredibly comfortable and well balanced.
Santa Cruz Tallboy. I rode 4 or 5 29ers at the dirt demo, and this bike dominated them all. the front end feels super light, and the bike pedaled and climbed beautifully. I think i might have to get one for myself (selling my nomad in the process)
thats all for now.
I need to come talk to you
So the Don is really changing shape, at least from Pottery Road to Loblaws. Somebody's been busy with a bobcat, smoothing out all technical sections. I've heard one of the builders say something online about "don't judge us, we're not done yet" and "this is to keep the trails sustainable" blah blah. Well I'm all for sustainability, and in a way I'm not really concerned about the section of the trail I mentioned. But why'd they have to fuck up the whole switch back area near the water treatment plant. The IMBA helped build that and these new guys are just fucking around. Who are "they" anyway? argg. /end rant
