It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

American online stores. Even though i wish to support local bike stores to purchase a bike, the mark up is way too high on road bikes. I got my leader track bicycle through Leader online and saved at least 300 dollars compared to buying here.

La bicicletta in Broadway is a nice place for road bikes (expensive ones too)

Where does one find a Felt bike in the Lower Mainland? I'm looking to buy my first road bike and the Felt F75 looked realllll good spec-wise.

These are the foot straps I bought. Those little leather ones look like they would break.

I bought them at Super Champion.

I'm riding a POS old 6 speed norco atm. I wish I can buy a high end bicycle but I am too paranoid to let it sit in my condo's parkade. Can't even bring it up the elevator without getting slapped with a $200 fine.

That sucks! I was wondering why didn't they honor the warranty? Isn't it lifetime?
Time to find a new frame?
