    There's always the Sidi's. You can replace just about every part of them, from the heal pad, to the cleat plate and straps. If your feet aren't getting any bigger, I certainly think they are a good investment if you are planning on riding lots.

    I'm thinking maybe 1ish at Canadian Tire at Yonge and Davenport? I'm thinking Pyze you live east, Duppy lives east and I live west so it is kind of a good middle ground. I'm not sure where Ronin is located, althuogh I think maybe him and Duppy left earlier maybe. I only need to get electrical tape and a few washers shouldn't be too long at Crappy Tire.

    Was it Danhalen that scored that nice Guerciotti at the bike show? There is a thread in C&V about another one and it looks exactly like the one he got:

    Yup that was me! That frame is exactly like the one I got yeah. I also found a pic on classic rendezvous of another one that is identical to mine, except it has both chainstays chromed, whereas mine only has the drive side chromed like the pic you posted.

    Here's the bike that I found: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Ita...i/Guerc_MS.htm

    Actually the one I posted is exactly how I want to build mine up, except i'm going to use dark grey/black bar tape instead of the yellow which looks awful on this otherwise classy bike imo. I can't wait to get it built!!

    On the subject of Guerciottis I love this one too: http://www.bikecult.com/works/archive/guercJPrs.jpg

    Purple ano-CNC machined- carbon fibre.

    Not the trail at Pottery Road, let me tell you. Clay = ugh. It built up on my front wheel so fast that by the time I got to the top of that very first climb (the new section) I could barely turn the cranks because a huge clay ball had formed behind my fork. It also added about 15lbs to the weight of my bike..

    Not sure they're worth 40 bucks though. Purple ano doesn't actually DO anything other than be purple.
