Stop signs on side streets aren't always faster than the potential of having to stop at a traffic light on a major street. I ended up taking side streets to Keele and Eg. then Eg. all the way to Kipling and head south then go west on either Burnhamthorpe or Bloor til I hit Hurontario. When you go along those major routes the traffic lights are timed to keep traffic moving.
    Hm. I guess this is the best I can do then. Efficiency, beep boop. (Thanks for the input, Joe.)

    I usually seem to end up on Bloor when I'm heading out that way.

    I agree fully. Except insert "6 months" instead of "two years". My only issue is the heel "padding" on one shoe has a hole worn in it, which rubs my heel a little. But that's happened to ever single skate-style shoe I've ever owned I think... and yes, I do totally unlace my shoes when I take them off.

    They're a 2005 model, but any local shop that carries Adidas should be able to order them in if they don't still have them in stock. Performance Bike has them for $110USD + bull**** shipping fees and customs if you want the quick/evil route.

    Re: the knickers, I probably won't do it. It was just an idle spending money for fun thought that I had while bemoaning the discomfort of my saddle despite wearing underknickers with padding under nearly seamless pants. This problem I will probably just fix by moving my Flite from one bike to the other. It is ever so much fun to think about spending money though.
