    Not sure if there are any here i live a sheltered life in the west end! Canít remember last time I was downtown.
    I don't think I have ever seen a courier in Kingston either.

    Yep, the snow I can handle, the ice is what gets me. Coming down a small hill and the front tire just went sideways on me, went down on my left side and slid for about 15 feet. Couple of bruises and got off lucky as I went from the curb out into the middle of the road I was lucky the closest car following was 3 blocks behind. Sometimes it pays off to start work early.

    Ya snow N/P. right now it's the icey crust on the shoulder that’s the killer.

    I think source sells Norco here?
    I was in J & J last week he had a nice Scott H/T on the floor good price if i remember correctly.

    Nice

    But you don’t need another bike right!

    I know, I have a hard time with need and want. Source does have Norco as well as Dougs in Belleville.
    I remember Scott from years ago, never knew anyone who had one, I will check out JJ.

    McCaluley in Picton is awesome for a "nearby" ride. I like my Norco bigfoot but looking for something faster and more responsive for ripping through the trees.

    Theres aways Trek... hehe.. You could check out Cycle path in kingston. Even the lower end Trek models are pretty wel equiped. I have the 4300 and I love it so far. Only thing I changed was Put Disk Brake in the front. In the summer I plan on doing the back too. You can get the Disk version, but I like doing things the hard way for some reason...
    Of course it hurts..

    Hey
    Checked out a few shops, not much when I was in. Seems everyone is waiting for the new stuff.
    You haven't been to McCauley? Its has some pretty good single track. Never to busy with bikes or hikers. Somedays you can have the place to yourself which I find pretty amazing as it is such a cool ride.

    Hopefully we and others in the thread can hook up for a ride this spring.

    Thanks for the offer for me to buy your bike but if it is the Columbia bike, don't take it personal but..... Never!

    Are you getting or have gotten something new?

    I like shots like that, it reminds me of Where's Waldo as it took me quite some time to find the bike.

    Congrats! Don't forget your kid will need a bike so maybe if you handed your current bike down and got a new one you'll be set for when s/he is ready to ride. Just a thought.

    Just throwing this out there. Doing some surfing and came across www.chicoracing.com They organize races and I took an interest in the 8 hour ones (July 26 and Sept. 7)

    I have never raced but thought it might be fun, I'll "giver" while I can but not going to be go team go competitive about it. Anyone interested in getting a team together or going solo but car pooling or if have had any experience with these events let me know. Thanks

    I've never raced or wanted to. I know a couple of people who do & they seem to love it, especially the 24Hrs ones.

    I'm lucky to get out on a Sunday morning ride!

    Heres the link to all the info click me

    I am for sure down for that. I was going to do a 24 hour race with My brother, but I think this is better for a first timer. I am not that fast, and need to quit smoking first, but then I am good to go... haha

    Ya, For sure, I would really like to do this. If we could get a team of 4 it would be great. Come on Joe, you know you want to. I also think My brother will come.
    Of course it hurts..

    eighter

    Yeah I thought about 24 but 8 seems a little more sane/doable/fun for me at this time.

    JJ cycle also has an 8 hour coming up Aug 16, they will post on their website soon. Local race is good as won't have to travel though do want to get to Hardwood hills this year.

    Yup, this is the one. Nice set up with deore so I won't be changing anything until it wears out or breaks. Also has smarty pedals by crank bros. Have some wellgo now on the commuter so looking forward to trying these ones out.

    The three things i changed right off were the pedals, brakes & grips. The bike came with platforms, V-brakes & crappy grips. So I put some time atac alum pedals, avid bb5 mech discs & oury grips. Still going strong got it in 04! (Giant NRS)I got some new grips for it on ebay last week.

    Did you trade in your big foot?

    My Neighbor got a Norco fluid & traded in his cyclecross bike @ source here in K-town.

    NRS looks good. I tried a full suspension out in Jasper and couldn't believe the difference in the ride. Must be why you are still happy with it.

    I kept the bigfoot as still like it for downhill and want a bike for friends/family to borrow when they come visit.

    I went to source for sports last week. Heard they were doing an inventory and giving 20% off parts if anyone is looking for stuff.
