Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

Ever want to know how to get from 'A' to 'B' the flatest / fastest / lowest traffic route? Want to find a route that has crossing signals, more trees and less cars? How about finding out how many calories you're going to burn?

I know I've always wanted to know anyhow!!

Well a joint project between UBC and Translink has come up with this:

I've done some fiddling with it over the past year or so and they've finally got it pretty much perfect.  This thing actually WORKS!!  There's a few kind of critical missing features (like PRINTING support, KML exports) but it's pretty freakin' awesome!
