"18 years old, 1st year university". i think that pretty much sums it up.

    the "taking time to find yourself" thing holds more salt than most people think. man, it's the rest of your life, make sure you're doing what you want to do.

    shiznaz.. what happened to your spicer? lovin' the steel now eh?!?!

    The spicer is still doing me great, I just need a new commuter, and the KHS actually has rack and fender mounts which is pretty sweet. I find the top tube a little long on my spicer for commuting as well, and I have the FSA vigorelli cranks and some other high zoot stuff on it that screams steal me. And I never had a thing against steel... I've only ever had one non-steel bike anyways!

    Hey guys, I just arrived in Toronto and will be here for two weeks. I brought my bike w/ me , but forgot to pack my bike shoes. I'm staying around Lakeshore & Bathurst area and was gonna hit MEC and Duke's(I think that's it) and that other place near Duke's to look for mtb shoes, but can any of you recommend any other places to get a good deal on mtb shoes? I'd like to check out Adidas mtb or the Diadora bikecop shoes. Thanks.

    Welcome. (Unfortunately I have no idea about the shoes, unless you'd just like a list of the bike shops I know. Good luck!)

    Edit: doesn't Cycle Therapy carry Adidas? Ask Eyefloater for the address.

    [shill]Hey, go figure - we've got a bunch of 2006 Adidas footwear for 50% off ... all men's size 9. See ya soon (1114 Queen East).[/shill]
