    Paypal transfer fees, shipping back fees etc. ?

    Are there other options?
    ask for money reinbursement, ask for favors (chicago = yojimbo's)
    Well, you definetely have to investigate the ding...maybe the seller didn't send it out with the ding and it occurred during shipping and you would then file an insurance claim. If someone is pleasant to deal with before you buy the item then they should be just as pleasant if there is a problem, which there clearly is. Take a photo and email it to them and see what their response is.

    I wouldn't pay for any shipping if the seller knows about the ding. In fact, I wouldn't put any more money forward at all if the seller knew about the ding and I would expect a full refund. Go through eBay/Paypal if the seller is not upfront about the problem, they come down hard on fraudulent sellers (if that is the case here).

    Chicago may have some good bike stores but Toronto has at least two excellent bike stores, Urbane and The Cavern, both of which are probably just as cheap, if not cheaper, if you factor in the dollar exchange and the shipping. I really doubt that there is anything you can get at Yojimbo's that you couldn't get or order from those two stores.

    Lastly, act fast! Do all of this today; the auction ended a month ago, you have to move on this now.

    I have an anniversary coming up.. any of you guys have any recommendations for a good veggie-friendly restaurant? Something more upscale than your average place since it's for an anniversary..

    The only place that immediately comes to my mind is Fressen, but we've both been there quite a few times. I'd like to go someplace new!

    Yeah, none of those places are particular "fancy anniversary meal" worthy other than Fressen though I don't think. That's why I'm looking more for veggie-friendly instead of strictly veggie... plus she's the full-time vegetarian, not me.

    I actually don't think I have seen that arcticle before though, thanks for the linkski!

    I'll have to do some research on The Internets this evening.

    Some of the places on that list aren't vegetarian-only. Cafe 668 for example got a stupidly high review and they serve everything.

    Okay, back-up plan: just take her to Canoe and forfeit a month's paycheque.

    Canoe, 54th floor of the east TD center tower on wellington street... did the whole girlfriend fancy dinner thing there last year. I'm not too sure that I recal the menu being veggie-friendly or not.
    I admit the reason we partially decided to go there was because of the Yukon Caribou steak being the first item on the menu, and a window seat on the 54th floor of a tower is almost as good as eating in the CN without the rotating.......it was about a $175 meal plus cocktails for the 2 of us. Keep in mind this was a proper 3 course meal with desert and wine.

    edit: eyefloater totally just beat me to it

    Well, hello new frame:



    http://thehubbikecoop.org/site/itemd...t=3rdcharacter

    I just picked up the last 55cm in stock. She'll be a fine ride on the streets of Toronto this spring (and hopefully even this winter if I can get the cash together for all the parts).

    I think I'll save that kind of cheque for next year (10 years, eep.)

    nice looking frame.. I'm thinking about building a new wheel set soon. Not sure what I want to go with though. I'm somewhat tempted to just say f-it and try and build a "dream" set, but I'm always afraid of **** getting stolen. I've never built a wheel set before, so I thought it might be fun. Plus, you can never have too much spare bike crap, right?

    Nice frame eyefloater. Thats just begging for a sweet straight blade chrome track fork.

    Or if I had the frame, I would use my disc brake compatible black steel fork and front disc brake for a sweet urban assault bike. (just because I have them lying around unused)

    In fact, if you want to go that route I'll sell you the parts. brakeless is cooler though, admittedly.

    Not for this project, but maybe for something in the future. I wouldn't mind building up one of the Bianchi ss/fg mountain frames or a KHS Solo-One.

    I've been eyeing those Bianchi frames as well. Very tempting.. I'd like to get back into a little trail riding. I'd like to check one out first though. Have you ever ridden one?

    No, but we're going to be carrying them in the shop this spring. What size do you ride? We'll be doing a bike share program and I'll have access to the bikes. If you like I can take one home for the weekend and let you try it out some time.

    DANG!
    I envy you eyefloater.
    I should have been more patient when shopping for frames. oh well.
    I've seen a KHS solo-one and they look cheeze. (haven't actually ridden one yet.)
    btw, what other sizes did they have for the pake?
    physics hertz.

    I'm around 6', so I would say probably say probably the 19.5, but obviously it's hard to say without riding the thing. It would be amazing to hop on for a day to check it out!

    Sr,
    The Solo-One stock complete bike doesn't interest me at all, but for some reason I keep thinking the frame has potential. I'm probably just talking out my ass though. I don't know what sizes they have left in stock - I just asked specifically if they had any 55cms left. That sale ends Dec. 31st, I believe. Any word from raygunner yet about your dented frame?

    Somna,
    Shoot, I was hoping we'd be closer in size. If need be I'll try my best to get you access to a 19.5" for a day. Maybe you can take a singlespeed mountain bike out and I'll see what a San Jose is capable of.

    I like FRESH by juice for life on Bloor. It's not fancy or anything but the food is good and it's all vegan or veg.

    How short are you? I sometimes like a slightly smaller mountain bike frame for tossability. Depends on what/where I'm riding.

    Damn.. now I'm all stoked to go mountain biking again.
