    I can't make a pair of walking shoes last for longer than a year... What the hell kind of clogs are you wearing rob?

    My dunks are pretty (4.5 years I think) old but they are totally worn to hell without much sole left and torn up on the inside. They're not good for walking, and haven't been since about year 2.


    Good quality boots will last forever though.

    i try to do most of my banking with a credit union. it's a bit different doing banking (which is a nesessity) and shelling out scads of cash for what is essentially a status symbol.

    I rotate between 3 pairs of new balances. They're awesome but not good for cycling :|
    I've just been told that I can actually use spd* style pedals with my sidis so i'm looking for something cheap and/or used so I can go clipless!

    Might be a bit of a pain with road shoes. The cleat will be sticking out the bottom of the shoe sole, just like a road cleat, only a bit smaller. Maybe grab some cheap MTB shoes? I got mine for under 50 bucks off ebay-they aren't very nice, but they work.

    No ordering and waiting... you gotta try your shoes on on-site IMHO.

    Or try them on at a store and buy online (especially w/ sidis-- try them on at MEC so you don't feel guilty for going behind someones back as well)

    Wow, so so so so so glad they are letting us out at 2pm. I feel like a 6 year old with ADD waiting for recess.

    you people and your office jobs! damn you, i'm slaving away all weekend.

    wow- i didn't know that about brooks' pricing. that seems like a hell of a lot to spend on a saddle 20 years ago.

    Unless I've completely lost my mind I'm almost certain that's about what they were. They've always seemed to be in a different stratosphere.

    I was actually going to suggest New Balance for their durability. Mine have lasted shockingly well for a couple of years now... I haven't had a pair of sneakers last more than a year for as long as I can remember! And I wore these while travelling around Europe last year too (and a couple other trips), so they've seen a lot of miles. Plus I think they're a little more labour-friendly than most other sneaker companies as well, although I think they've been getting some criticism recently about their use of factories in China. So, maybe those days are over for them.

    I'm up for it, but Ematei is a tad expen for me right now. There's a wicked place at the corner of Dundas and McCaul.

    It's a Korean/Japanese joint.

    The Mtn bikes a bit scummy and the cross bike is ready to rock.....you may borrow either for the day if you wish. The cross cannot see extended periods of pavement tho...my cross tires do not like pavement.

    My MTB is also available if you like. It's pretty oldschool though....2" travel forks-I am a luddite.

    I probably can't get to the trail before 2 or so on sunday.
