^probably a few hundred thousand worth of bikes just sitting there...no biggy!

I don't think I'd ever race. I'd get my ass dropped so quick! Do they separate you guys based on cat or is it just an open entry type of deal?

Can anyone recommend a good set of pannier bags for my bicycle for commuting? I will be commuting to school and will be carrying my textbooks, laptop and calculators through the rain. Currently, I am looking at the Ortlieb line of bags, but I was hoping there would be other bags out there with a similiar waterproof reputation but at a lower price.

Just throwing it out there for all you rich ballers.

Cinelli USA's webstore is selling their white Experience frameset for $575 USD (regular $799.) Columbus Airplane aluminum!

I'm thinking of pulling the trigger but....not BB30!

Finally bought myself a commuter/kid-hauler/road bike after finding several cracks in my trusty mid-90's Norco, although I think I'm more pumped to get my son on the run bike!

I'm in the market for a cyclocross bike too. Did you buy that new and how much did that cost you, if you don't mind me asking?

I did a nice 35k ride out to Iona and back yesterday. Is there a slight incline heading out once you're on the road with the UPS and all the construction? Either that or it was a strong headwind, but it was waaay easier leaving Iona.

headwind most definitely sometimes it can get switched around though.

Mike and alphamale - i think i might have just missed you guys this morning! did the stanley park loop at around 930 on the fixie. it was weird because i got up the prospect point hill a lot faster than i normally do on my road bike.

FYI guys friends and family for Sportchek 26th and 27th of this month 25% off all regular price items 10% off sale....
Sept 27th is also Grand opening of Marine Drive Sportchek on Marine/Ontario 20% off entire store.

Team assist will not stack with F/F, not sure about Marine's opening though.
the 20% off at marine is off already reduced merchandise, so for road bikes that are currently 30% off....you would get additional 20%
Not idea what their selection will be like, but I will be there to conduct some training seminars for that store prior to the opening so I can update you guys then.

Remind me to never ask you to go for a ride. Ever.

We didn't hit Stanley Park until maybe about 10:45am. But all in all, that ride up Grouse was brutal, especially that last bit. Just before I hit the base of Grouse, my calves locked up with a muscle pull. I had to pull over to the side before I bailed.

All in all, a good but brutal ride. Iona Beach - that headwind. Good God. I am tired.

^Awesome! That is some serious distance, and the max speed is up there too!

Got in a great 30km ride today in some summer-like heat. The new bike felt good, but man do I ever need a different seat asap. I didn't realize how sore I was until I got off the bike and walked around for a bit at the half way point....made getting back on a less than enjoyable experience (until everything numbed up again )

A question for you guys: how do you carry spares tubes/tools etc? I'm used to mountain biking with a pack full of stuff, but I'm guessing that is a faux-pas among roadies since I never see people with packs. Seat bags acceptable?

a lot of roadies will carry a tube in the back of their jersey in one of the pockets, and also some will use CO2 pumps or very small mini pumps either in their jersey pocket or mounted on the frame.

Ignore the max speed. It isn't correct. I think it jumped when I went to grab a bite indoors.

If you haven't ridden in a while, this is normal. You'll get used to it. The only solution is to ride more!
