I think you should just go on the 'bay to get a pair.
Bah I looked. The only stuff they have is like, 26" rims, but it is in the exact colour I want though. And they were Bin'ing for like $50 a pair :/

Sometimes I wish i lived in the states just so I could buy a whole bunch of cheap stuff then smuggle it across the border.

PPS. Can a Brooks Swallow be justified on a Pake?
i believe all clip-on fenders are created equal. alright for keeping the dirt stripe off your back/bag in a downpour but otherwise you'll be soaked.

and a brooks cab be justified on any bike so long as you ride the piss out of it.

I just took my gf out for dinner for her bday and on our way down Front St. E. I saw that Europe Bound had THREE track bikes in the window. 2 Fuji's and a Louis Garneau (?!). They're everywhere!

Shiznaz: what time was the incident at Yonge/Davenport? I actually bought lunch from the chip-wagon in front of Canadian Tire today.

On an unrelated note: I'm starting to get some creaking while doing any sort of pedal resisting... any suggestions? This was happening the last time I brought my bike to urbane for the chainring bolt issue and the tall-lanky-guy-who's-name-I-never-remember checked the tightness of the crankbolts into the BB.. but it's still doing it. I guess it could just be the BB, eh?

Ya, all I really want to do is keep the ass spray off - a general fine mist of filth never bothers me. Any downpour will have me changing into a fresh set of clothes once I get to work anyway.

when he checked the crank bolts did he remove them and apply some grease to the bolts before putting them back, as well as greasing the crank arm itself?

A loose crank is a pretty common cause of creaking, but check your chain ring bolts as well. They can be the source of many a mystery noise.

Park tool has a pretty good diagnostic path for creaks

Shurely you need a new frame and wheels?

That totally sucks. Glad to hear you didn't get hurt too bad. Sometimes it seems like everyone on the road is trying to kill you. Nice job sticking up for yourself and following through with the cabbie.

I may be up for that. Are you still interested in that Apollo frame? Sorry, I've been nuts busy of late and haven't called you about it.

I've got full-coverage SKS fenders on the urbanite (actually on my other bike as well); to me, they make a big difference in my overall comfort while riding. my feet stay drier, my chainring and chain have less gunk sprayed up into it from the front wheel. they're black, on a black frame so they don't look too offensive. it's the main reason that i bought one of urbane's new frames, the first urbanite frame i had had no clearance for fenders and no eyelets either. i've got 700x28 tires in there with the fenders. no complaints. have you got one of their recent frames?

yeah, those halvesies fenders can be a pain to set up and maintain.

I got mine at the end of last August, so I guess it's the new version. Where did you buy the fenders? Also at Urbane?

check to see if it has eyelets on the fork and at the track ends. and yes i believe i bought the fenders at urbane. or at europe bound. anyway, they both sell them. $30 or so.
