Along with that...

I heard that major mountain bike manufacturers have decided uninamimously to drop the 26" diameter wheel platform in favor of 29-ers'. Their press release suggested that anyone with a 26" wheeled bike stock up on tires and tubes now because they won't be made beyond the end of the year. Crazy. ;)

When I saw Critninja's post I thought for sure he had just copied and pasted Ric McIver's election platform for sustainable transportation. The only missing part was McIver's support for a new Tour de Nuit of Unlit Bikes ride, to be held daily.
