Why did'nt I think of that?

Check out this little slice of genius from Russ Hay's


Bankruptcy Auction Il Campione Cycles Inc.

Campione has been slowly liquidated over the last few weeks. Most of the prices have been way to high to make checking out the auction worth while, even at 50% off retail. $250 for an obslete stem is alomst worse than some of the posts on Craigslist.  Best to wait for the auction on May 30th 2013 unless you relish the idea of paying top buck for obsolete or obscure road bike parts. 175mm Dura Ace Octalink triple for 500$ any takers? From what I gleaned during my visit last week most things will be sold off in lots. I'm sure craigslist will be swamped with magnesium Deda 1" threadless, Nitto chromoloy trakc drops and Gippemme wheelsets in no time. Check out more details and some photos here

Well this is a first for me

Tri-colour Deore?



Bikes on board

I'm pretty sure that bikes out numbered cars on the ferry back from Galliano island this weekend. BC Ferries needs to respond to this demand, especially on long weekends by offering better service and amenities to cyclists. A few things that would be a great help, would be an option to reserve a spot on the ferry and some type of rack to store bikes in. As you can see, with the high volume of cyclist, space on the deck is at a premium. Bikes have been stacked on top of one another. Not only is this inconvenient, it can also scratch the paint and damage components . For the extra money I pay to take my bike on the ferry vs. walking on a bit of service would go a long way.

Yep...

Faster than a helmet ticket, or at least more cunning.

The Police will be patrolling the bike routes with this nice weather and the peak of bicycle season approaching. If you have forgotten your helmet or its in for warranty replacement (I swear) these tips from helmetchoice.ca and might come in handy. Follow this link to find out How to Dispute A Helmet Ticket and if your a shit disturber you can tweet helmet roadblocks @situpvancouver


P.S. I'm gonna slap the next person I see riding with their helmet dangling from their handle bars. Dude, I know it gets in the way of your Bluetooth-set but seriously, WTF are you doing.
