    Alright!
    Thanks guys!
    I just wanted to get a rough estimate of what frame size I should be riding.
    I rekon a 53ish would fit.
    I've never actually bought myself a bike yet....
    So I guess I really need to get down there and test fit one for myself
    hurrah.

    I guess the next question is,
    does anyone have a frame they want to sell me
    haha.
    I think, if I don't get anything by the end of christmas, I'll just go out and get an IRO Mark V.

    btw, are there any good deals on track / fixed bikes at the toronto spring bike show in the $1000 range?

    Man,
    I really would if I knew what I was doing.
    To be honest, this would be my second... non super-cycle purchase aside from my rocky mountain MTB.
    I have no tools at home, and no experience and no clue what parts I need to build up a fixxer.

    Two suggestions:

    - The "search" function on this site, as well as just browsing every thread that looks interesting.
    - Sheldon effing Brown - http://sheldonbrown.com/fixed/index.html <- knows EVERYTHING.

    definitely don't just jump into a purchase. if anything, you've got all winter to peruse and research before buying for the spring. don't give in to impulse!! ..it seems like you're in a rush for some reason. like i-float says, it's doubtful you won't have any questions unanswered between sheldonbrown and this site.
    speaking about IROs.. i was at st.lawrence market on saturday and saw a white one locked up at the north entrance. i locked up next to it but it was gone when i came out. i think that's the first IRO i've seen in the city.

    i like your iro. my next bike will definitely be white.
    i was downstairs at a place called "jude's" picking up some flour and yeast. had a buddy over, made pizza..yum. darkmomma, can you recommend any good places for flesh on the main floor? or cheese? i don't know how anyone can decide in that place... it's a nice dilemma though. actually, i biked all the way to kensington to pick up stuff that i could've got at st.lawrence. maybe i just like riding.

    I'm not much help....I pretty much wander around there randomly, and buy whatever tickles my fancy. I've bought meat there a few times and it has always pretty good, compared to typical grocery store stuff. Cheese is always hit and miss-it's good if you go to a place where you can sample-like the one in kensington. Cheese is serious business....almost as serious as coffee.

    do you guys go to the north building, or the south, or both?

    I've only ever been in the south building. It's too meaty/stinky for my veggie gf.

    the north market is the farmers market and sunday antique market right? i hit it the sunday market a lot. stroll in there with a coffee and browse junk. hmm, i shouldn't call it junk because my place is furnished with it. the bulk grain place in the basement is good. the market is convenient and you can pretty much buy everything under one roof but it doesn't have the bargains or coffee that kensington/chinatown has.
    i wish their hours were better because i've no choice but to go to dominion when i have to work late. that place sucks the bag, man.

    Thanks
    I'll go check it out.
    I'm just thinking, would 52cm be a bit small?
    anyways, I'm just wondering, would shipping a complete bike from US through UPS or anything else be worth it?

    Snow + fixed gear = fun.

    Toronto drivers + snow = amusing chaos.

    do you guys just rock your slick skinnies in the winter? I've never ridden a road bike in the Winter before..

    I wasn't feeling well this morning, so I jumped on the subway instead of riding.

    i regretted not riding this morning.. took the streetcar. the roads downtown are totally clear of snow. i ride in the slicks but i don't have fenders which might make for a wet bum at work.
    hey fixedude, i'll be heading to your side of the world in dec/jan so it looks like we won't be able to meet up!!!
