I love my bulldog mini! I'm wondering if it would be a bit of overkill though. It's a pretty hefty lock, even though it's not that big.

I'll check some of the shops on my commute route to see if they have any stock. Kind of getting late in the year for LBS's to order in new stock, I guess...

I'm waiting for my chain actually, haven't checked to see if Cavern has them in stock yet. Does anyone know if the molly lock that comes with the krypto chain - are they good?

Some people have recommended to replace with a protected shackle padlock, masterlock or something, but where would I get one.

I think I already posted a while back that I picked up an Evolution Mini at Cyclepath at Bloor/Dufferin about a month ago. Have you tried calling them?

They also had chains..

I think I can see a couple of Track drop bars in one of those pics..... thats a lot of junk though, anything of good quality has probably been removed and put to use somewhere else I'm thinking...

Looks like an 'art bike' builders wet dream....

hey guys,

thanks for the lock hook-ups. i'll give cyclepath a ring.. cavit8, there's a bulldog-mini thread about chiseling off all that bulky plastic hardware on the lock.. i think it shaved off more than a pound.

it's this thread: (scroll down for a pic of the lock sans plastic)
onguard locks- pitbull or bulldog?

Since a lot of Toronto riders lurk on this thread I'll post here. Major oil spilled in the southbound curb lane of Yonge Street around Steeles. I thought that it was just water until I washed out the back wheel trying to slow for a light. It's also at least a block long.

I'm not sure if the scattered rain we're having will make it better or worse. Probably the latter.

$68 or something close to that. One of the owners was saying she tried to double to order we got in (8 Minis instead of 4) but that was all Kryptonite could spare for the store. It's supply hell these days. By the way, there's only one left in stock. We're open 11-6 tomorrow if you've got the time.

Did anyone check out the City of Toronto Auction down at the Ex? I picked up an old Schwinn cruiser that has some good parts for 17$ and a great little touring bike for a girl I work with for 9$. There were a lot of really crappy bikes going for really high prices, but my friend bought a Raleigh tourer missing a front wheel for 2$, a Mixte for 1$ and a little no-name road bike for 6$ that he is going to make his winter beater.
