In retrospect, that doesn't really matter - I went to MEC yesterday and tried on virtually every size of sidi -- they just don't fit the shape of my feet. And so continues the search for shoes!

45= too large. Mine would likely fit a 10 1/2 comfortably. I'm an 11 and they're pretty snug.

I know you're probably under an NDA. But is it at least a cool case?

No orders after we came to a not guilty. The police will no doubt be adjust their SOP's when doing opportunity drug buys.

That was a fun ride last night. Was nice to hook up with everyone. Hopefully there'll be more excuses to hang out.

(Yes - Ryan's peer pressure encouraged me to stop lurking and actually join in the discussion...)

Integrated headset on aluminum frame FTL. That better be warranteed or I would shout derogatory comments from the roof-tops.
Oh yeah....you may want to dis-assemble the bike if you can. many shops will try to ding you with dis-assembly/ re-assembly charges...this is often not covered by warranty.
Off to the Icebreaker....not up to racing today but am gonna go feed the team which should be moderately more enjoyable than hammering around in the rain. There are 7 folks doing the 50km....animals!

I like the Google ones, free wireless internet via your toilet. They've always had good ones, it would be fun to work for Google methinks.

Looks similar to the Tsunami road frames available on chucksbikes for $300 USD. Comes with carbon fork and looks better than that bike. And you don't have to deal with ebay garbage.

P.S Ebay auction is for a used frame as well.

A few days later, I was in Sporting Life with a friend and while she was trying on shoes, I was telling her about the bike and the good deal and whether or not I should get one. One of the kids working there overheard our conversation and he said "Excuse me, but I worked at Dukes for awhile and those Santa Cruz bikes are POS's" and he went into great detail about how stiff and unforgiving the ride was and that the reason Dukes had so many was because they couldn't sell them.

I was grateful to the kid and thanked him and he was really great about the whole thing, no bitterness at Dukes or anything like that, he just knew that the bikes were not that great and there was a reason they were on sale. This was in 2003 or so, so maybe Santa Cruz frames are better now but it looked exactly like that one you have linked. So, that is one opinion for you

See this is why I ask. http://cgi.ebay.ca/Pinarello-road-bi...QQcmdZViewItem

Now that Pinarello would be amazing if it wasn't 600 US

edit: does anyone know if those Tsunami track's with the carbon forks are drilled for brakes?
