    I agree with you most of the shops give you attitude here in downtown. Dukes and Sportinglife included..But as far Cavern Cycles is concerned i dont think youll find a better shop..And Kieth is the most helpful guy in town...i m sure as he said it was one of the guys he hired that gave you the snub but ask anyone here on this forum . And everyone will say go to Kieth at Cavern Cycles for not only IRO but everything. I have bin bugging him for the last 2 months with questions for an IRO and fixed gear. And he has bin veyr straight forward and helpful . And he knows what hes talking about. So dont penalize the guy coz of someone he hired. It can happen to anyone.

    See, this makes a lot more sense to me. I couldn't figure out how Cavern stayed in business if the guy that owned it was a prick to his customers. I don't even know who I talked to, but it was probably Mr. Long Gone. It's good to hear something back from the shop this quickly though - that's bonus points for class.

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

    Yeah, that's me. Funny, I probably would have busted some bike rage too-hate it when people honk at me

    yeah, a couple of years ago, there was this guy working at Carvern Cycle, and boy he got some attitutde, I didn't go there any more for sometime, then I got a flat tire near sherbourne and Adelaide, and with such a luck, I didn't bring a spare tube with me and it was almost 5 or 6 P.M. and the guy was closing shop, he said he was closing shop and asked me what I need told him I need an inner tube and the guy gave an inner tube and told me to just pay the next day coz he was in a hurry, I was able to fix the flat and the next day I went back and pay the tube he gave me. He is not the same guy, who gave me the attitude a couple of years ago...

    When I need bearings in a hurry and dont have them in stock I call Motion Industries,200 Queens Quay, unit 2, 416-465-8250. If they dont have them in stock they should be able to get them for you within a day or 2. Dont know how prices stack up against Sheldons tho. K.

    This is a licensed hall but refreshments will be very affordable. The location is just south of King Street.

    Hey Oscar, I'm doing fine. What's new with you?

    I haven't been riding as much as I'd like the past couple of months. Got into a bit of smash-up with a car in early June (fixie, not the roadie)....
    so I've been trying to finish up this project as quickly as I can...

    Loose screws (http://www.loosescrews.com) sells chromium bearings for around $3-4 US per 100. They also have a mixed package of a number of different sizes. I thought sheldon's prices a little steep. I'm not sure how that plays out against Motion's after shipping.

    7 hours lol :|
    The last 50km was so boring, you can't believe it. North access road next to the QEW all the way to St. Catharines + head wind.

    And this morning coming back I got soaked to the bone twice and then I flatted west of sauga. So then I cheated and didn't complete the back to back century.

    The cavern/sneaky-dees cycling club party isn't happening at Sneaky Dee's? Interesting.

    I might try and pop by for a bit, but I have a non-cyclist friend visiting that weekend.

    Having the party where it is enabled us to charge $.50 less per beer. Always looking out for the budget minded beer consumer! K.
