    t-honks is right. The "Cyclist Hit" thread getting bumped every day is too tense.
    Eric Hunt's memorial is still up. It's been beautified further with flowers and absolutely nothing has been removed.

    i have a set of heavy steel mtb wheels. not good for much else. I would pass these on if you could use them. they have tubes and tires on them as well. let me know

    i know people are asking at bnb tomorrow. i'll try more shops as well. i can't get an answer from newton. everyone is super nice, but no one seems to know who to talk to. call them if you like. maybe if they here from lots of people: (617) 796-1000

    when should we put them up? should we do something to commemorate? cm is next friday. maybe ride past all of them...

    hey I have an old frame you can use. It's high tensile, shitty and sitting in my garage. I'd much rather see it go towards something worthwhile than rot in a dumpster. If you want to keep the frame you're planning on using, you're more than welcome to this one. Actually, I implore you to take it.
