Where did you pick up your Kurt Kinetic bcrdukes? I've read it's the best bike trainer on the market, but they're pricey.

I got mine from La Bicicletta on W. Broadway. They had the cheapest price in town for $365 or something. Most places sell for $399 etc. They aren't cheap - I agree but it really helped me when I first got back onto the bike after a 15 year hiatus. :D

Online prices are the same even in the US - just an FYI.

Does anyone happen to have any suggestions on foldable bikes? From my limited research I hear dahon is a great brand but I am looking for other people's opinions on a decent folding bike.

DavidNguyen 05-30-2012 01:41 PM

I recently got a dahon mu p8. Great bike
Honestly I think they're all the same. It comes down too. How much your willing to fork out. The more u do. The more stylish your bike will be

DavidNguyen 05-30-2012 01:42 PM

If your on a budget. Check out the folding bike made by norco..."fiori"

I'm sorry, your right until you have a bit of experience on a bike, then you notice right away. Bikes with good components last. Crisp shifts for more then a month, adjustability. Keep riding and you will figure it out quickly.

but 1119-20% is still $895.20...pretty good deal still

Starting June 6th Sportchek is running the "spend and get" promotion.
Spend $100 or more and receive a $20 promo gift card
Spend $250 or more and receive a $50 promo gift card
Buy the Ventura race this time with the Team assist coupon and you would get the 20% off AND a $50 promo gift card. Not a bad deal.

Thanks for the headsup skippi! Probably hold out for a while longer

Horrry shieeet. Hit the (metric) century mark!!

Rode 107km today. Avg speed: 26.7km/h

SUPER STOKED.


I kinda want to buy a GPS bike computer so I can post pics of my routes.

bcrdukes 06-02-2012 03:01 PM

Next thing we know you win the Giro d'Italia. :rofl:

What an awesome day for a ride!

This was taken on the Seaside pathway on the way to Granville Island.

From my earlier post I was wondering which computer to get, and I decided on the Cateye Wireless Strada cyclocomputer. It held up pretty well today.

dat_steve 06-02-2012 07:19 PM

that's the same one i've got :) works like a beaut
sick caad10 btw! you look like you're prepared for a zombie apocalypse with that massive saddle bag :P

woob 06-02-2012 07:27 PM

Yeeuh CAAD10 army! I have a red one. I kinda wish I had the black, though, since red is so heaty and it makes me not want to leave it around.


Also, did anyone get hit by hail today?

Riding along River Road in Richmond, my group and I got absolutely soaked by 20 mins of heavy rain + hail during an otherwise clear day.

GREddie 06-02-2012 08:15 PM

Hahaha! The bicycle... It's fast and quiet; perfect for a zombie apocalypse. =D
My saddle bag just holds my keys, wallet, spare tube, tire levers and a bike tool.

dat_steve 06-02-2012 10:28 PM

just checked and i guess my bag isn't much better heh..maybe about 80% the size of yours. i managed to squeeze in a tube, levers, multi-tool, patch kit. keys, phone, credit card+ID, and maybe a snack bar are in my jersey pockets.

going to do a quick 30k around ubc/kits tomorrow morning, hope the weather keeps nice

Senna4ever 06-02-2012 10:42 PM

I hate you guys....here I am congratulating myself for riding 10km..... :okay:

bcrdukes 06-03-2012 03:08 AM

The more you ride, the easier it gets. :)

so true. scary moment for me today - was going through ubc and then i thought it'd be fun to see how fast i could go down that hill right after the highway (kits side), big ringed sprinted then tucked in and got up to 58+km/h (i was scared to look down and check after that) then i realized what would happen if i hit a patch of fine dirt or an unexpected bump in the road then i hit the brakes right away.

have to say it felt pretty good though lol felt like i was in Tron :nyan:

Rode over the Burrard Bridge towards Pacific Ave. Midway, a man in his 50s or 60s blasts past me on his road bike. :okay:

Get a proper bike fit done. Right fit and right gear makes all the difference. I went from not riding a bike since I was a kid to being able to ride 120km a day easy.

Aiming for 160km+!

No worries, homie. My dad is 50+ and he's just as strong as me on the flats, but poops all over me in the hills.
