On What's On Your Locker Door?

@Helvetica I don't know which one but I think I would like to know if someone would be so kind!

On Friday Open Thread

@karenb Walk around Mile End for excellent cafes, food (here be bagels), and vintage shopping, try interesting beers at Vices&Versa or Dieu du Ciel, go to Mont Royal on a Sunday afternoon and find the LARPers!

On Friday Open Thread

@wallsdonotfall I'm late, but super cute bike! One thing that no one has mentioned yet is fenders! At least a rear one is super necessary if you don't want to look like you've had an unfortunate accident anytime the streets are wet. I don't have a rack so I'm not sure how much protection it provides, maybe you'll be okay with just that? Also relevant for rain: a raincoat with a hood big enough to fit over your helmet is really nice.

Also, commenting on what @roselio said: if your rims are steel, you'll definitely have a problem with braking in the rain but if they're aluminum you'll probably be fine. If your bike has steel wheels (it's more common on older bikes) you may want to consider upgrading to aluminum as they're lighter, faster, rust much less, and brake better than steel even when dry. It's an easy, relatively cheap upgrade that returns a lot.

And last plug: see if your area has a bike repair co-op! They're the greatest!

On The Lean In Pie

@zamboni Yeah but that's twice in the past three months..winter crush, remember? I feel like except for those times the vibe has been getting more platonic over time and he certainly hasn't made any effort to move things forward. I think I either need to have an awkward conversation or try and move on, have a spring cleaning of my heart if you will!

@whizz_dumb Oh gosh don't think I'm not trying! we've made out twice but maybe some of the aforementioned selfies would help speed things along.

@whizz_dumb What if my spring crush is just a leftover winter crush that I haven't succeeded in doing much about?

On Twelve Days Biking and Camping Alone Along the Pacific Coast

I LOVED THIS ONE. I'm a city biker who dreams of long cycling trips--this summer I'm going to start working my way up to longer day trips and see how far it takes me!
