Oh my gwad.

Canadian dollars are worth more than real dollars.

We’re completely screwed.

I see Matt Chester is planning on building bike frames again, which makes me pleased and happy. I’ve rooted for him ever since I saw his bike on fixedgeargallery and said “you bastard!” because he nailed my mtb-meets-roadbike aesthetic down to the ground.

What’s the German for ‘opposite-of-Schadenfreude’?

He had some hard times for a while, and stopped taking orders for frames, but now he’s getting married, moving to Canada and he’ll take new frame orders in March.
$2200 Canadian for a custom titanium frame. “That’s a bargain, eh? What is that, like $1800?”

No, y’hoser, it’s more like $2353.57!

Well! The opposite of Schadenfreude is mudita, taking delight in another’s well-being. That’s cool.

    Yeah, I like the same sort of thing. It “takes me to the fair,” as whosis said in _The Third Policeman_. MC’s bike is there is a great example.
