    I have heard they are putting up or renovating a bridge about 1-2km south of the Sunnybrook Park on the Don Valley Trail. Has that been completed yet?

    I'm sorry if my direction isn't correct as...

    I think these would be good bikes for a 5-10mi. commute on relatively flat terrain or people who like old-fashion looking bikes that are simple to operate.

    Another MKS model worth considering. It is called MKS RMS Sneaker pedal. It rotates very smoothly and grippy with my Adidas Sambas or even work boots. It's made of aluminum alloy, rotates very...

    New wheel it is. I took the old wheel to my LBS and he said it's ruined because the bend is more than 1/4" on one side.

    The replacement wheel is a Weinmann LP18 rim with Shimano HB2200 hub and...

    The bike is still ridable. It limped the last mile or 2 back to where I parked. I just have to open up the front brake so the wheel can rotate somewhat freely and I think it's scratching the fender...

    Damage of the wheel. It's the stock wheel on this bike. It's Alexrims with some unknown hub. You can see that it is bended by looking at the alignment between the front fender and the tire.

    Tires are 28mm Conti gator skin, I think that's pretty much the largest tire I can put in. And I use rim brakes on the bike.

    Need front wheel suggestion

    Took a spill today (first time in 5 years) and bended the front wheel. I'm on a very tight budget right now so all I can pay for is about $80 or around that. I don't need anything fancy, just tough...
