Was just about to post this

The 20% discount code is 3T5DDVQUXR , it's a generic code. Good until June 6.

Is anyone thinking about buying anything?

The best deals to apply this 20% Off onto are Bundles, Discounted Items, and Clearance items.

If I can find at least 2 other guys here interested in Pro Team Baselayers, I'd be willing to spearhead an order.

Very good deals on pro team jacket, transfer jacket, winter jersey, classic jersey and bib combo...

Can someone suggest a place somewhere in either Burnaby or Vancouver where I can get an affordable mountain bike?

Hey guys, looking to get some suggestions for bike storage indoors of an apartment. The wifey just bought a bike and I'd prefer not to keep her bike on our patio exposed to the elements.

Anyone in the same situation where they need to store multiple bikes inside an apartment? Looked online at a bunch of options, but wanted to see if anyone here has personal experience using a certain method.

Gf and I are moving into our place Friday. We have four bikes. All will be inside our 850sq foot place. Two hanging from the ceiling/wall in the insuite laundry.

The nicer two bikes we are mounting on the wall of our 2nd room. That'll probably be the cycling gear / computer room lol.

I'm using this rack in my own apartment:
Delta Michelangelo Gravity Bike Storage Rack - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available
Been using for the last 3 years with no issues, it's good since I don't have to drill any holes, comes apart easily, etc..

That's a long commute man!
I usually do Bike to Work, but I've pretty much screwed up my entire summer! Tore my MCL and possibly ACL in my knee while playing Ultimate. May need surgery, and must take 8-10 weeks off! Yep, sucks! Guess I'll be working on more bikes instead of riding now.

Bike to Work week just started, raining today, lent out my MTB to a friend for a XC race (he has a 6-inch travel AM bike with no lockouts) this weekend and havent gotten it back yet.

Super sketch going down a 8.5% grade hill for ~500m with rain, slick tires and road bike brakes.

I want my MTB back!

I felt relatively safe actually. I mean, you do have zillion pound metal death boxes zipping past you at 100km/hr, but the bike lane on the shoulder is very wide (about a full car width). It was surprisingly clean on most sections. I was expecting lots of debris and glass, but it was okay for the most part.

I was planning to ride to maple ridge from richmond sometime this summer. Do you think the route through Surrey is better than through new west/pitt meadows?

If you're going to maple ridge from Richmond then just follow my route exactly over the golden ears bridge. This route is way easier since it's all bike lanes on highways, barely any city routes.

The only part I got confused was getting on the correct side of the Alex Fraser bridge while heading towards Langley. If u zoom into the route I took, u can see where I crossed over to the east side of the bridge, then went back over to the west side.

If you wanna ride the perimeter road hwy 17, then you will want to go over the Alex Fraser on the west side (south bound) bike pedestrian path. You will take that side of the bridge both going and returning

Thanks, I was looking at that set up. Do you do anything to help secure the front wheel when you put the bike up on the rack? Only thing I read is that, because the front wheel is free to move, the wall can be dirtied by the from wheel touching the wall repeatedly. Other then that issue, I haven't read anything else wrong with this.
