Good day from Mississauga!!!

Good day to all,

I'm new here, by not to the idea of cycling.
I have started biking back in 1987 on a nice Canadian Tire 6 speed bike, it was called an ATB. the frame broke so I had it welded (HI ten steel) in 1994 came a nice Peugeot MTB(made in Canada). Once more frame broke from riding too hard, perhaps. So I had it welded (Cro-Mo). After that a nice Wheeler which got traded in for a DeVinci (Canadian made). Now, no more broken frames. Now I ride a Specialized Sirrus a hybrid and a Cannondale F series HT with Headshok. Love to cycle, be it commuting, MTbing or cycle touring. Cannot wait for my first 100km ride of 2008, hope that March will bring nice weather.

I bid all of you good riding

Hi fizol, you are the second person in as many days from Mississauga. Are you going to the bike show in Toronto in March?

Welcome to BF!

Hey I know that town!

I'll be at the bike show as I'm visiting a good friend that weekend. Was at the show a couple years ago and made the HUGE mistake of going shopping the day before - and only entering the bike show with a paltry $40. Bad me.

I'm also looking for mtb tires - Had my other mtb stolen so I had to scale down on my new mtb purchase this past spring - and I'm not all that pleased with the tires that came with the bike (rockhopper). Looking for a good pair of offroaders (I know the tires I want and I doubt they'll be there, but we'll see) and if there's some studded tires there in my price range - may snatch them too. Sigh, need a new set of roadbike tires too - maybe.

And I definitely want to see if Dirty Girls is there again and has a jersey available.

Oh, I'll be the blond walking around
