yeah I just checked their website. They seem to have locations on ossington and on nassau, but the webpage seems like its an online only business. Can I just show up at the store and buy beans?

Yes, both stores do storefront retail. The ossington location is quite a bit bigger with more seating but the roasting is done on Nassau (and Audrey Tatou is there). Update on the boneshaker. Buddy made a typo and wants $1500 for the bike. Given a new repro is around $900 USD.... boneshaker ftl.

That's okay, I want a tall bike like the second one in this video

I bet you he upped the price after receiving a bunch of replies. And not taking high school biology comes back to bite me in the ass! Appreciate all the advice guys. UTSC has a program for ems/paramedics actually.

Yes, it is a very highly regarded program in Canadian EMS and yeah, you would likely need Biology for their program but not for the Humber one. Humber's program is known for their realistic scenarios and this gives the students a much better understanding of how stressful a situation can get; Humber students are therefore well-known for having less "freak-outs" compared to other students. The UTSC program is relatively new and I've heard they try to emulate Humbers scenarios plus there is a large emphasis on knowing the ins and outs of biology/physiology.

I clicked on your photo bucket to look at the GT you need a new fender the barqs isnít going to cut it. Get a hard plastic seat post clamp type thing use the ghetto set up for the down tube. Now for the important question so do you have a ostro frame or did you sang some pics off the net???
Cheers

The fender works well with water but I've never tried slush or snow. Thanks for the advice. I'll plan on a real one soon.
I figured it'd bring the "heat" on my bike down because its ridden daily around campus.

As for that ostro frame. I was considering one a LONG time ago but Keith advised against dealing with him so nope, I don't own one.
Ostro sent me those photos when we chatted and I uploaded it cause I thought they looked awesome.

+ I think another bike would be a bit too excessive.

if you have a good eye and aren't scared of a little smoke you can do just as good a job with a heavy-bottomed skillet with a lid (a $5 oven thermometer is also handy but not essential if you know your stove) . my cast iron pan worked nicely (except when i tried doing a french roast, and then i kept beans on the heat too long and they burned; of course, you can do that to with a roaster).

Thatís too bad, now that you say that i remember. But still that frame is sweet IMHO. Itís like a GT pulse mixed with an old sloping curved KHS (witch i love) i through them an e-mail i'm curious what they want for one if even available.
Cheers
& three of the same might be a bit excessive.

That's IDeal.. I see Martino there regularly. I think I'm actually going to head there in a little bit for a coffee before I meet for a band practice.

trip was sweeeeet, the trails there are so nice.

we were staying in Sedona the whole time, so it was nice and warm.

Chris took a couple hundred pics, I think he's still uploading them to Flickr.

went to the Flagstaff observatory on Friday night, pretty sweet.

Yea, amazing mountain biking there, so many trails, we had about six full days of of biking and we could only fit in about half of the trails in the Sedona area, I want to go back again soon.
