    Calling all Runners

    I don't have a specific model in mind, but I think most brands make comparable shoes in terms of stability and cushioning. The big difference will come down to fit (e.g., toe box, heel cup, width), so definitely try on a few. Having said that, you're likely to have the most luck with New Balance...

    I'm not a bike fitter, but a 18.5 sounds like it'll be too big. You'll probably be stretched out more than you want for trail riding.

    I have this rack from MEC:Delta Michelangelo Gravity Bike Storage Rack - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available. I hang my road and mountain bike without any issues.

    New Bike - Help with make and model(s)

    Yo Aaron, Don't worry about how fragile a bike "looks". As long as you're buying the bike from a decent bikes shop (which I think you are), all the bikes they'll carry should not fall apart if you're using it for the intended purpose. The intended purpose is the key factor here. I think...

    Anyone here use a Garmin or know of any places that have them priced well? I'm eyeing the Garmin 510 bundle (including cadence sensor and heart rate strap), and all the places that I've checked out have it priced at $399. Thanks! Albert.

    Calling all Runners

    The Sporting Life 10km seems to be a popular option. I've ran it once, and it was well organized, but the downhill early on is killer. For some reason, I actually prefer going up hill. I've started running again after hanging up the shoes for the last few years (the new road bike took...

    Nice bike! I need to get some regular rides in as well since I'll be riding the Centurion up at Blue in a few weeks. We're not doing the 100 mile option, but I have a feeling the terrain isn't as flat as the Martin Goodman trail. Ciao, AL.

    Toronto Restaurants that are an *EXPERIENCE*

    I went to En Estado Puro which is located in the Hotel NH Paseo de Prado. I'm not sure if you're planning to visit any of the museums, but the restaurant is located along that main street. From what I recall, the restaurant had some pretty interesting tapas and nice selection of wine by the...

    ^^ What's your price range? Which shops have you been to? A few places worth a visit are Dukes, Cyclemotive, and Gears. The first two are in the downtown core, and Gears is in Leaside (Laird and Eglinton). I lucked out with my mountain bike at Gears, and they cover minor adjustments for the...

    I'm not sure how much distance this will add, but you can try the following: from the Leslie spit, head north on Leslie to Lakeshore head east along the south side of Lakeshore until Coxwell cross the street (north) and head west along Lakeshore - this will connect to a path that runs...

    I haven't done it myself, but it should be straight forward. Besides, if you mess it up, you have your appointment as a safety net - unless you plan on riding to your appointment! Are your road levers also shifters, or standalone levers? I've been toying with the idea if switching myself. Did...

    Men's Fashion Blog

    Gotstyle is a good option. I think they also have a suit trade in promo on right now. Depending on how much time you have, it might be worth checking out Great Stuff (I think that's the name - it's a couple of doors east of Swan on Queen West) and maybe even Banana Republic.

    Got out today. It's was nice and warm, but the wind was brutal! I'm hoping to get out a few more times this week - the weather is going to be awesome :D
