Most shops offer bike storage. Just drop off your bike. Call a week ahead at start of season and just bring insurance papers.

There was a classic blue one in Coquitlam I think, but it was in really really bad shape. He wanted around a grand if I recall

So are a lot of other goods being sold in Canada. I think he's just saying that for a company selling in Canada, that their prices are a good deal, regardless of where the retailer got them from. Don't think he's trying to say the tires are made here or anything like that.

Yah, I get that, just saying for those tire deals, bayside just brings them up from the states. But people dont' really care when they are getting a deal.

$80 for install i think.

$330 just for both tires.

I was quoted at 2nd gear in poco both tires + install = $542.05

Saved myself the long drive + $100, plus Ben is great to talk to he is so passionate about bikes.

Didn't say they are worst and dont' work, where did that come from?


Post context was "Thats a killer deal for Canadian market!!!!"

My point is simply the tires are from the states, hence the lower price, compared to other local vendors who get tires from "Canadian Suppliers".

Bike just got winterized today and is in storage now. I was hoping the weather wouldn't change to shit so quick

Btw if anybody is looking for a place to store their bike, mspeed performance offers it for $30/month and they'll put your battery on a tender.

lol, i'm stupid, i don't work tomorrow. but if the weather a couple hours ago is any indication of tomorrow, it'll be shit :c

*edit*

however, this is promising

Wednesday: A mix of sun and cloud. High 12. UV index 3 or moderate.
Wednesday night: Becoming cloudy in the evening. 30 percent chance of showers overnight. Low 7.

text me if you guys go for a ride. 778-997-6177

they'll probably copy your key and steal ur bike

heard stories from one of the older guys that the owner's pretty shady. he was involved with multiple bikes that was stolen...stripping parts...etc
