I don't think that any of you will understand this, but that's okay, it's pretty dumb anyway.

~300gb seems to be the sweet spot for money per gb right now. Unfortunately they didn't have the enclosure I was looking for. I'm looking for one with a specific chipset that allows booting from the drive. I'm going to use it for backup (+ working files for audio projects) so it'd be nice if my internal hd goes sour I can just boot straight from the external drive.

Lil' bit of column A, lil' bit of column B.

I dislike the place because I'm friends w/ the guys at Cheese Magic and they got hassled by the coffee place for going in when they were busy and trying to get some coffees (ala: un-hip staff from the neighbourhood should know better than to bother other the shops with money when they're busy).

Total hearsay, but I've got to stick with my cheese moguls ... they're my pushers.

I love cheese magic. And ideal has way better mud anyway...

Op: I'll grab the road double off you. I may put it on something other than a fixed.

We don't carry Shimano shoes ... and we've got some Crank Bros. pedals in stock (C's I believe). Time stuff we always order in.
