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?

Awesome got me my leather low Pony's from Dixie Value Mall, last year for 30 bones....(lovely wife found 'em...thanks hun) At 5 I ride home ...... I'm off tomorrow with my daughter. CM!!!!!! The more people there are in it the more law enforcement is out there in the rain and thunder. A shame political activism is dependent on good weather, man are we EVER apathetic in this country. lol , not a dis but an observation.

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?

I'd just buy the frames Cavern was selling if it was $300.

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.
