    I acutally buit up a LEVEL / Open Pro Wheelset which I am riding now with 52/17 which is much nicer on the knees than my 52/16...Its a little tougher on the downhills, but more comfy on the flats and uphills.

    I'll cruise by too. Like to check out some of your rides, and take advantage of stupid toronto drivers, bike gang style.

    Cool. I'll tell you what, if you show up, I'll pay for your ferry ticket. You just have to name your first born after me.

    that would be awesome. I want to try that sometime. The video of the NYC race was inspiring.
    I'd be worried about biking during the strike, at least during rush hour. Just that many more rubber necks

    Sweet....TTC strike. It is going to be chaos! I love it when this happens. Just slows the cars down so you can pull even more audacious moves. I hope they walk out....

    I just got clipless pedals today. They are great, I can get so much more power now. However, they take some getting used to and I have a scraped and slightly swollen elbow to show for it. If I'm lucky I'll get another hour or so practice before I meet up with you guys!

    seeya then

    Sure, then you get three times the vehicles, 2/3 of which are whiteknuckled freaks who don't drive and aren't used to bicycles on the road. If TTC goes out, watch your back...

    ditto, yesterday I was out from 10 till 4 as well, totally wiped out and sunburned....

    I saw on the news yesterday morning that dukes cycle was completely sold out of all bike locks by mid afternoon on saturday because of the transit strike.... a profitable time to be a bike shop owner I guess...

    Funny. Reminds me of that Y2K B.S. Everyone bought all kinds of bottled water and camping stoves-what a joke.

    damn.. that sounded like a good ride. i was busy on the weekend and had to work sunday but still got some biking done. could it have been any more gorgeous on sunday?????!!!!!!!

    kinda off-topic but.......... what are people's experiences with duke's? any problems? it seems like they're always getting some kinda publicity or other. now magazine award for best bike store, eye award for best bike store.. blah blah blah... is it all deserved? their prices are ok on components, and i've experience the full spectrum of customer service there...
    on another note, strike averted at last second. wow, big surprise. they like to keeps us in suspense though.

    I'm not a huge fan of Dukes. There are worse stores, to be sure, but I generally have to go in there and stand around for half an hour waiting for the resident crack head to help me. I prefer Urbane Cycles, it's in the same 'hood. Much better service, and more knoledgable staff.
