    hey, "guy I met at CM on the IRO": I saw you today at Spadina & Front. You were right in front of me while I was waiting for the light to change going West on Front. I was going to beep, but I thought you'd probably think I was just some guy in a car with road rage.

    ps. I assume you're on here, I can't remember if we talked about bikeforums or not..

    Anyone know a place in downtown-ish Toronto that sells IROs? I hear they've got a new frame on the way and I'd like to take a look at it in person when it comes out.

    Cool, thanks for the info. I had a bad experience at that place a few years ago though, so I'm not really itching to go back. I asked about getting a wheelset built up w/ MA3s and the guy working there told me they don't work with rims of that low quality ... and just left it at that. That left me with a sour impression and my money going to another shop.

    *shrug* Maybe he was having an off day.

    ^^^^^
    Lotta attitude in Toronto bike shops, what can I say? I have experienced that at pretty much every downtown bike shop. I like Urbane, but even they give me attitude now and then with my ghetto rides------------I brought in a Shimano WH-535 wheel I found in a dumpster and they told me it wasn't worth fixing. I took it to Sporting Life and they trued it and gave me 3 new spokes for 15 bucks. Meh. Stick to big shops like Sporting Life, Dukes or CyclePath to avoid the elitist schlock or suck it up.

    If that was last year it was probably the guy I hired off my race team to fill in at the shop. Got lots of complaints about him and he is long gone. If you came in and asked me about MA 3's I would not only recommend them but keep them in stock. K.

    Yeah, I meant "suck it up" like "don't think about it, just go elsewhere", not "suck it up and deal with the attitude to get the job done". I re-read what I wrote and it doesn't make much sense, sorry.
