    RCMP do not have a presence in TO, and it is the RCMP who are the worst thugs in Canadian law enforcement, historically. RCMP are only around federal sites (like House of Commons in Ottawa) and in...

    Punching someone in the face is definitely a firable offence in any situation, but there is more to the story.

    I know others have had different experiences from me, but I have used MAFACS (cantis and Racers), as well as Weinmann brakes, set up with modern housing and aftermarket pads, and the dual pivots are...

    Maybe the MAFACs are the best of the centrepulls, but that's not saying much. Road bike brakes made a very big leap forward in the early nineties when dual pivot calipers came out.

    RaceFace used to be a small boutique manufacturer, but those days are long gone. Their parts are all Asian manufactured parts that are styled differently from, but otherwise identical to, FSA,...

    No- wait for the final report to come out from the Republican party that Hilary has been sneaking in and deleting their emails.

    This^^^. I can post a 'wish list' of speeds that looks similar, but my wish is to ride my tandem fatbike solo faster than my time trial bike. Even if we take you at your word that you had the same...
