    Never even thought about going into the shoe.
    Mine has this separator that runs done the middle of the sole, if you've got the old atacs you know what I mean.... It might just be time for a new set O shoes.
    have you got the 1st generation time's with that super-long cleat? those shoes / pedals aren't compatible with modern spd systems? yeah, it might be time for a new set of shoes. check at Duke's; this time of year they seem to be clearing out the last years stock to make room for the latest and greatest.

    of course i know you're blowing smoke, i still think we should have a low-tech throw down: a cut-off dickes and rusty 3 speed race!

    yeah, streamers and a big basket on the front so the bike handles all tippy. oh and a horn and some sort of stuffed animal zip tied to the frame.

    man, northstar runners, that's zellars 1982, yo. takes me back. and yes, pony's will do. i remember wanting those as a kid becuase there was a poster of spud webb a la playing for the atlanta hawks way back when on my wall. enough of this nostalgia, i want to go riding? who else is going to be out pedalling after work?

    I was just wondering if anyone here rides a Fuji Track Pro. I want to know how they ride on the street. I have seen one courier guy on one but was going the opposite way when I saw him and couldn't ask him his opinion. I have played around with the Pista Concept on display at Urbane and really like the feel of aluminium but think that the Track Pro is a better deal. Any thoughts?

    At Yonge and Dundas when on break I see three messengers go by on Fuji Pro's all the time just hang there and chase them down .P.S. I saw a messenger there who's bike frame was covered in carpet.

    If it is Bianchi spec ie: Sugino 75`s and Cane Creek wheels, you would be hard pressed to find a nicer off the peg bike. Also the Bianchi frame is much nicer imho. I am not aware of the price difference but if it were me....and I could afford either....I would take the Bianchi hands down. If you want to trade the wheels for some clinchers the price should come down a few bucks.

    Hrm, good advice guys, thanks. Did anyone notice those CL postings regarding track bikes? Two in the last two days, I think it is the same guy, any input on those frames that are "handcrafted in a little shop in taiwan that only does high end frames" for only $300. The listing is "toronto eastend downtown" and the photo is in front of a bike shop I don't recognize, what do you guys think? Sketchy?

    hmmmmm.....handcrafted....little shop........Taiwan. The trifecta of oxy-morons right there. It is indeed a Polly frame. Some people love em...some people hate em. They are very street. Not a bike for Forest City thats for sure. I used to sell a few of em a year for Polly. Rumour has it....well he told me actually....that he is doing some new frames. More track geometry. I believe the name was to be Zombie cycles. I suggested Answer My Door in a Housecoat Cycles...but he didnt like it.

    Hrm, the photo in the CL listing made the geometry seem tighter; this pic I can see that it is quite relaxed. It isn't a bad price though, maybe the Zombie ones that Cavernmech mentioned will be tighter. Thanks again for the input guys.
