7pm according to the website.

I will be leaving work (front&bay) at around 5:30, dropping off a dvd at suspect video at bloor and markham, and then heading to mcbride's. If anyone is going the same way let me know.

If not, 1230pm is still good for me.
1:00 works for me. Also, I'll likely head over to McBride's when I get off at 5:00.

ps. James, you're too fast. I was just about to hit Submit when you called.

what route do you normally take? I can't imagine that there are any particularly nice routes down from York.

ps. Ronin2046: apparently my laptop battery is pooched. This battery diagnostic they used reported the battery as having 217% charge. Tried a known-good battery in there and it worked fine. Of course, the battery is a few months out of warranty. D'oh! Icing on the cake: I go to buy a new one and they're out of stock. *beats head against wall*

That's one of the perks of working at this concrete wasteland/slum parking lot. I'm pretty sure 90% of drivers up here have never actually seen a bicycle a road, except in the movies. I actually have a pretty slick route to my place, all things considered, and, because I am bored silly, I am going to map it out.

Prices weren't that great. Maybe they'll lower it later. Even with the 26% off. Maybe you guys will find some stuff.

I also lost ronin there haha.

hmm gloves.... gettin to that time isn't it?
I need new winter gloves, but I think I should get pre winters as well. My fingers took beating in the last cold season. I saw some neat work/swingin hammer gloves at home depot I might take another gander at. Anyone know where to get Pryme gloves here in Toronto?

Yeah, thanks for bailing. You missed out on all the track/roadie stuff in the next building...

Just kidding.

They have a few things. Nothing too exciting.

They have: racks, shimano shoes, gloves (not too much), tires (mtb/road), typically XT,XTR,SRAM,AVID mountain bike grouppo stuff...

They DO have a 58cm Fuji Track bike. I'm not sure what year. But it's grey/black. The sticker said $649.99 I'm not sure if that's the price for the whole bike, or just frame and fork, cuz it was just that. Maybe they haven't built it up complete. Man, if it was a 54,53, or 52, I'd snatch it right up.

They also have a yellow Norco Monterey road bike, I think its a 56cm. Too that was also too big for me.

They also have some Mavic Open 4 CD (2x28hole, 1x36hole), a Velocity rim (not sure which one) and other brands.

The line-up to purchase was MASSIVE! It's all these guys buying up all the motorcycle sh*t.
