Ontario to US border crossing

Does anyone know if there's a place where you can bike into the US? I really have no idea if its possible. Somewhere from southern Ontario into NY ideally.

I had three bikes done at Byers Bush in Mississauga

You need to bring them the bare frame, but they do good work and it costs around $100

Haha, dunno what just happened in this thread...

Thanks...

Actually, I can just put back the tekro short reach brakes on my current bike (where my 6700 is currently) and see how it works. That should provide the same results.

Yeah, I was planning to use the Shimano 650 until I read some reports of poor performance with 6700. But it sounds like that can be resolved with some set-up trickery if it is even apparent at all....

I asked about the tire clearance at the shop, he seemed to think it wouldn't work. But I will have it confirmed with Marinoni, since most people report the 47-57mm brakes leaving enough room for 28c...

Apart from Ford's anti-bike position, he also just doesn't seem particularly competent.

Of Smitherman and Pantalone, I much prefer Pantalone's overall platform. That said, Smitherman's supposed...
