Dogs on bikes

Here is an article on how to make a bike carrier for a dog. Sarah I don't know your email address, but I'm sure it could apply to cats or fish.

I am thinking of building a fixed gear bike, hopefully to be serviceable while winter's still going since they seem like a good idea in the snow. Does anyone know where I can find good illustrated instructions?

Also what kind of hub is best and where should I get it? I am looking to do this as cheaply as possible although it'll probably end up being my most expensive bike. Can someone whose done this tell me how much I can expect to spend? Everything I find is in american dollars.

If I can get ANY bike together for tomorrow I will see youse then, but I'm not sure that's going to happen at this rate....

Ottawa Critical Mass Flickr photo group

Hey guys,

I thought it would be interesting to have a flickr group for Critical Mass photos for the Ottawa CM. There aren't any photos up yet.. Anyone have some photos from the Ottawa CM they want to contribute?

Here's the link!

Also, I met a really nice guy in Melbourne who posted some interesting thoughts on taking photos at CM's, thought I'd share.

Happy riding!
Rob (currently hiding from the Canadian winter in NZ)
