    If you're looking for a complete bike, maybe. If you're just looking for random parts, the fall bike show is a better bet as it is more 'bargain bin blowout' style (Plus TJ can get you in for free). The spring bike show is a bit more like a trade show and they are generally hawking new 07 stuff at retail prices. Its good if you just want to check stuff out and window shop though, since the fall bike show is a brutal soul killing experience. Still 15 bucks? Too expensive to window shop, and you'll need to spend at least 100 bucks to make it worthwhile.

    It's a bit of a rip off if you are already in the bike industry. I went looking for parts for my Orbea build, and most stuff was at retail or slightly below. Now if I was looking for a (really nice) complete bike, and didn't work in a shop, it would be great.

    or, what Shiz said.

    At least that's what they told me. So if you wanted the specific colour this guy does, then this is likely a good deal. Otherwise, stay with Jet.
    The advantage you just mentioned does not apply to that CL post, if by custom you mean "Dark Red Gold Metallic". Even if you DID want that colour you could just do it yourself for $125 from another powdercoater place in 'sauga that Offhoff went to.

    I see no advantage of using this guys "deal".

    At jet Kote ($75) they pretty much have all the basic colours covered but if you wanted something special you'd have to pay extra. Can't be $50+ worth of extra though.

    i like to go to the bike show even if i have to pay for it. for $13 i consider it an afternoon's worth of entertainment which is still cheaper than a movie. besides, seeing all that bike stuff in the flesh is like going to a live sex show after you've been reading porn on the net all year.

    Just got back from a solo snow ride. It's pristine out there. A bit cold, but you can get a wicked skid on.

    Reading pr0n? Sounds pretty pre 95'ish to me

    Oh yah: http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/pages/...0&in_a_source=

    This guys last words when parachuting (main + reserve failed) was "I'm dead Bye". Best to-be exit line ever. Can't imagine what I would say. Probably "GG" or something.

    Threw the knobbies on the mtb today and went for a spin around midnight. Fun and slow. No way could I have riden the fix tonight. Realized what a blessing a 28 tooth chainring can be.

    Oh it is. I managed to make it about 500 meters before I turned around and went home. Couldn't make it. Side streets were a mess and Pape was no better. Even rode the bike with good knobbies in the lowest gear. Too bad I was looking for forward to a fun ride.

    ...I'm going to attempt ... oh, let's say college/yonge/queen. Looking at Ossington/Harbord this morning it seems like even if I can keep upright on the roads I'll just get side-swiped by some idiot fishtailing around a corner. I saw a whole string of cars almost lose it trying to turn right. Gee guys, maybe see what happens to the car in front of you?

    hahahahahahaha damn it was a ride alright...up over the hubs in some spots, but the snow is light because of the cold, but it's not turning into slush either. I let out alot of air in the front for my ride in.

    I had the same thought. Damn you Henry Ford. The cars wheeling by my place are going relatively slow, but still no place for slick 22's and 72 gi's. I need to rethink my winter bike setup.

    *cough* slacker *cough. It really isn't that bad. As T.J. said the snow is really light and dry. If you ride in the clear lane it is tons of fun. I took Dundas all the way in from Leslie and it was great.....I actually passed a couple of cars. 23c slicks FTW!
    Now THATS a snow ride.
    Oh yeah...also full Goretex suit and Sorel boots FTW! lol

    I made it in all right. I fell over twice when I rode in to large snow drifts and was sliding all over the place but it was good! I wouldn't have made it on slicks though, thats for sure! I was trying to ride in the somewhat clear tire tracks but occasionally it would just turn to hard pack and I'd start shimmying around violently, wrenching the handlebars this way and that. Cars were giving me A LOT of room. haha

    Yes cars were VERY forgiving today....but they were having an even harder time I imagine. I didn't get to reverse the tyres to the "soft" setting...my front was fishing around quite abit All in all it was good, I did cheat and hit the sidewalk in some places though. You know the hardcore messers that came to work today are busy and makin' coin today.

    So who wants to meet up after work for some snow biking shenanigans followed by a beer (or an espresso martini if you care to come by my place)?
