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?
Damn I'd take that Pinarello over any modern aluminum road bike any day!

If it was 600 BIN I'd already have bought it, but I bet it goes for near a thousand which is just too much.

That Pini from Cali will be close to 80$USD to ship plus the seller cannot ship USPS so they will have to use FedEx or UPS which means brokerage fees, so add probably another 100$CDN onto the total. You will be spending close to 900$CDN on it, far too much if you ask me. Wait for something on CL? Or are you set on a Pini?

The only thing I want is a bike that fits, really that's all I'm looking for now.

Damn, I was looking forward to (ab)using my power.

Tricks and Drinks - Toronto Chapter?

Any interest in starting up a local Tricks and Drinks night in TO?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/swade/s...7600017398849/

I'm pretty sure Toby is in... bike, tricks, drinks - what's not to like?

I just noticed someone put Rob Ford's quote, pic and email address up on fixedgeargallery. The poor bugger will rue the day.

The guy I quoted from before is a bikeforums member, he also crossposted his reply to TBN forums. He is also on the CM vid saying something radically different.
