Yeah, there's nothing. I even e-mailed customer service. They said no tracking numbers for these orders with free shipping.

Alphamale didn't get a tracking number neither.

Well I'll be sure to update you guys on their exchange process, one of the continental tubes I ordered has a 5mm long puncture through BOTH sides of the tube. Looks like someone took a steak knife to it...

LOL! Sorry to hear!

I hope their return policy covers return shipping! Otherwise I would just take the hit and buy one locally.

Any way, I'll just have to be patient.

I got caught in the rain on a light stroll along Main and to La Bicicletta. Just got home. Riding in the rain unprepared is...not fun.

yes i got it for about a week now, went only on my last ride, but fit is very good compared to my garneau that i got from sportchek. much lighter as well, got the bug catcher mesh as well as a cushion for the chin strap. overall im very happy with the helmet, doesnt feel like i have it on even on my long ride. as compared to my other one i always felt it was on my head and starts to take a toll on my head/neck after a while.

its a bit of a steep purchase myself, i got it for 160$. but nonetheless, better to protect my head and only have to buy once.

which now means i have a spare helmet..

Wow, nice helmet! How did you manage to score it for $160? I believe they go for much more than that.

So far, I'm liking my Rudy Project Rydon prescription sunglasses. Love the fit, finish and materials.

Finished the 100km Pacific Populaire bike ride in 3:44:03. Not bad for a first time big event. Hit the wall on the way back on 16th at UBC area. Had to stop and eat a bar and replenish a bit. Got super hungry that i got so dizzy. But all in all it was an awesome ride. FREAKIN AWESOME. haha. Didnt bother taking photos after the ride as i forgot to do it. Was only thinking of going home. haha

check out my strava app for more info.

For some reason, I can't help but think you've ridden well over 100km.

Nice seeing and meeting you there too man. Crazy you still rode back to Richmond .

Definitely, felt good finishing our first local and 100 kms ride. Head wind and the light rain definitely made the ride a bit tougher .
