    Toronto fall bicycle show 2013...who's going?

    So who is going to the frantic Fall Bicycle show in Toronto this year? I'll be looking for shoes and helmets. If I happen upon more spare cash..lol...then I may consider other toys. So who is going and what are you going to look for if anything?

    I admit I'm a little underwhelmed with the fall show. It's terribly crowded, and the lines to pay can run out of the door. And I really don't "need" anything. But having said that, if I have nothing better to do I might give it a whirl.

    It's kinda fun. I think to see the really good deals you have to get in early. I actually got a good deal at the spring show by waiting around until 30 minutes to close on the last day and honestly just not being able to bite on the price I was given first. At the fall show you gotta get in early and go for what you want and grab it. Know how much you think it's worth, how much you're willing to spend etc. It's kind of a crazy place. I went there last fall to give myself some energy as I was healing from a back injury. It got me motivated over winter.

    I'm in....need shoes and some cool weather gear, although I may get that elsewhere. Full-fingered gloves are on my list and also a (good) floor pump.

    Where and when is the Bike show. Sounds interesting. I fix bike and give them away to churches and those in need and well I'm in need of tools. So I guess that I'll go and see what they have.

    It was this past Saturday and it was pretty packed. There were some good buys to be had but you had to navigiate through a ton of people to find them. It id seem like bikes were flying out the doors.
