Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Quebec and Ontario info...

Howdy,

First the spam. I'm going on a rock tour:

NORTH of AMERICA on tour!
09 -29 Toronto, ON @ The Mod Club (w/ Ted Leo)
09 -30 Hamilton, ON @ The Underground (w/ Ted Leo)
10 -01 Montreal, QC @ La Sala Rosa (w/ Ted Leo)
10 -02 Ottawa, ON @ Babylon (w/ Ted Leo)
10 -03 Kingston, ON @ Clark Hall (w/ You Say Party We Say Die)
10 -05 Mississauga, ON @ Masonic Lodge (w/ Germans)
10 -06 London, ON @ Call The Office (w/ Chixdiggit)
10 -07 Windsor, ON @ Phog Lounge (w/ Dog Day)
10 -08 Brantford, ON @ The Ford Plant (w/ Dog Day)
10 -09 Toronto, ON @ Sneaky Dee's (w/ Dog Day)
10 -10 Quebec City @ Kashmir
10 -11 Fredericton, NB @ The Taproom (w/ Special Noise + Fembots)
10 -12 Charlottetown, PEI @ Hunter's Ale House (w/ Special Noise)
10 -13 Halifax, NS @ The Marquee Club (w/ Ted Leo and Chad VanGaalen)
10 -14 Halifax, NS @ The Pavilion (w/ Ted Leo and Sharp Like Knives)
10 -15 Sackville, NB @ George's Tavern (w/ Special Noise and Chad Van
Gaalen)

So now the not spam: As you can see, lots of short drives in Ontario with a lot of downtime in between. I'm curious if there are any bike shops I should check out in these towns in between rounds of minigolf. I know Urbane, Cavern and that place in Kensignton market with the cheap Fujis in Toronto, but outside of that I'm at a loss. Is Bike Specialties worth checking out?

In particular, I'm looking for some MKS GR-9 pedals but I'm really game to go and oogle nice stuff in general.

If any of y'all might be coming to these shows, be sure to say hi. Ted Leo is not something to be missed.

Thanks
m.

nice! right around the corner from my house (both shows here, really).. Who are you playing with?

Don't think I have anything to add really for the bike shops though.

I'm going to reiterate what [165] said. You're touring with Ted Leo!! That's awesome and has gotta be a great thing for your band (exposure-wise). Congrats. And have fun. Eat lots of poutine for me cuz it's tasty.
