Yep. It's a single speed. It's a fantastic bike! I'm spinning 80 rpm cadence and I'll be at 25kms/h

Dead quiet like a ninja, keeps my pants clean when I ride to and from work. I actually set some of my personal bests on strava with this unit and some clip ins going up hills.

I know Speed Theory rents out wetsuits, but not sure about bikes. I think La Bicicletta rents out bikes though.
La Bicicletta Pro Shop, Metro Vancouver's Premium Road Bike Store & Cervélo Retailer.
And apparently Spokes near Stanley Park rents out road bikes.
If all that fails, you can try Spinlister. It's like AirBNB, but for bikes.

Just a couple more bikes I got recently, and as usual, all are for sale!
Giant OCR3 46cm. Yes, it's super tiny!

Norco Tactik Dirt Jumper, this one REALLY feels like a tank.

KHS DJ25, feels like a heavier tank!

Specialized StumpJumper...classic! Even has rear hydraulic Magura rim brakes.


Okay, I really can't fit anymore bikes in my bike room now...but N+1...

Got it in an email and don't plan on buying anything. Probably single use so if you use it let everyone else know!

Thanks! I used this one. Been meaning to buy the super lightweight kit for next summer!

I'm subbed to the Rapha newsletters and I've purchased a couple products from them, wonder why I don't get these emails...?

They sent it to me as a "we miss you" type of deal. Last time i shopped was about 3 months ago, so maybe you just need to not buy anything for a while lol

Showers Pass Elite 2.1 Men's Cycling Jacket - Medium

I'm selling a Showers Pass Elite eVent jacket in "Like New" condition. Size Medium. Purchased last season at MEC for $315+tax ($350), still retails for exact same now. Barely worm as I lost a lot of weight and became a Rapha nuthugging brand whore. Been hanging in my closet since.

Fully taped seams. Light weight. Reflective stripes. 3 layer eVent material. Breathable. Pit zips. Pockets front chest and rear back. Big zipper pulls for easy use with gloves.

Excellent wet / winter / commuting cycling jacket.

hehe. i pedaled my way through knee deep of flood on Central Valley Greenway near Costco Willingdon. That was on my way home Thursday night when rain was strong. broke my front lower fender mounts, my stuff in my pannier was all wet, didn't realize rain/sewage water seeped in my water bottle cause i left it open and i drank from it. was gross. so from that area to Surrey i didn't have any water to drink. was too lazy to stop by a gas station for water refills. just wanted to get home asap. haha

For those who ride faster than 40km, does counter steering apply to bicycles as well when turning, like motorcycles?

Yup. Lack of a motor doesn't change physics. Although when i'm riding, I'm certainly not thinking of counter steering. There is much less weight to be pushing around.

What are you wearing through the wet winter when you ride? It's all about the gear, you don't need the best, but the most effective.

You should have full length winter bib tights, DWR on it would help a bit, but in torrential down pour, you will get soaked anyways so it's all about staying comfortable. Socks, should be wool/merino wool, period. There are different types of merino wool socks, so purchase ones depending on weather/temperature. Cycling shoes, if you're still wearing your one pair of summer cycling shoes you better have an AWESOME pair of overshoes and even better winter tights to make sure the water sheds off your legs and feet. Your winter tights should go over top of your overshoes, if not all you will do is have water running down your leg and into your overshoes/socks/shoes and you will get soaked within minutes. Front and rear fenders WITH fender extensions that extend the front and rear fender to within 2 inches of the ground.

If you have the money for a pair of winter cycling shoes, Specialized Defroster Road shoes...

A lot of folks ride throughout the year regardless of how hard it rains, it's all about gearing up correctly

Counter steering does help keep balance. It happens even at 10KM/h. It definitely helps with wet leaves and low traction.

I got specialized mountain bike shoes to pair with my bike now. They are water resistant but not water proof. I also have the winter full bib too but I'll probably have to layer up more. Those thermal gloves I got from Giant don't do squat. I'll probably need better winter gloves. Thanks for the suggestions. It will be a lot of gear shopping this boxing day.

GORE Bike Wear makes excellent winter gloves. I am still using my GORE Countdown gloves from 3 years ago for wet winter, when it gets below 0* I wear merino liners + the gloves. The Countdown gloves were discontinued, but the new version is called Xenon Gore-Tex Gloves, reasonably priced at $90.

I ordered these a couple weeks ago. Tried it already. Kept my feet dry through downpour of rain for about an 1.2hrs of commute to work. I have yet to try it on longer rides.

veloToze Tall Cycling Shoe Covers

Just really hard to put on. Like they say, its "foot condoms". Careful putting them on and off cause you can tear them pretty easy.

Bro these look like they would work well!! Because of how it "seals" at the top

Is the material rubber like?

Any fleece on the inside? Sweaty feet at all?
