Make sure the sales guy has your name, phone number, and what you want to pay. Walk away now and let him come to you at the end of the month if he hasn't met his target.
I both agree and disagree.
11 speeds and the huge cogs contribute to the problem, but having a chainring that is spaced outboard doesn't help.
Ideally a chain should run straight from the chainring to the center cog of the cassette. Mine are off a cog or two which in turn gives bad alignment when in the 42t ring. This is nothing new and I know how to fix it. I am just trying to find a suitable ring for my bikes.
Cinch cranks don't lend themselves to be spaced easily. Shimano rings can be spaced over due to the use of a spider.
Frustrating for sure but as with most things bicycle related, someone finds a way to mess things up so we have to keep buying new parts in the quest for the perfect ride.
I had Shimano cranks and tried to space over the ring… It did not help.
I find road bike sizing in general to be more about torso and leg length than height. My co-worker and I are similar heights but he has a longer torso and legs and thus is a size bigger than me on a road bike.
But at your height you are likely in the 58 - 59 cm range. And how that translates into physical sizes (large, XL) depends on what the manufacturer calls it.
Components cost a lot more than they used to.
Think drive trains, dropper posts, suspension. Tire prices have also increased about 25% in recent years.
A lot of bikes now also use more aftermarket parts as OEM spec, or have improved their house brand OEM spec parts a lot.
And some of it is probably just cause they can.
Said that from the beginning.
CMHC is taking stock of what they have. They know where Canada is going in terms of housing and mortgages, and know they're about to bleed some money. They likely just want to have all their ducks in a row and if they need a few hundred million, they know where to find it.
So……. You saw Uncle Scrooge trolling last week and you wanted to give it a go and it didn't work out the way you wanted since you had pretty much no facts to back any of your claims? And then when you got some facts they made your claims irrelevant?
Going to be a long winter on NSMB boards.
I bought a Reign 2 from Different's demo / rental fleet last year… It was barely used and served me very well! I'd give them a shout and see if they have anything, I know they try to have a good demo fleet through all their locations.
All legal trails from what I can tell in Jesse's ripe on the Maxxis semi chub tires.
i also missed this….. that's gotta be VOY based on trail selection / speed….. he owned pipeline and BP like no one i've ever seen
BC Bicycle Buy'n'Sell is not very active and BC Bicycle Classified was shut down last year (was quite active). Which pretty much leaves CL and Pinkbike.

Dont know where you get that info.
Just got the sickest deal ever on a TCR on BC Bicycle Classified this past weekend.
Search "British Columbia Bicycle Classifieds" and "BC Bicycle Buy [HTML_REMOVED] Sell" on Facebook.
Actually read that is some financial post somewhere the last few years.
First comes the news …
Then comes the tourists and buyers.
That's right, even bad news is Good News. The Tasering actually showed that police here are unreasonable to the better of the unreasonable elsewhere. And it did make international news. It's just one cog in Vancouver's international news cycle. Vancouver flew under the radar for quite some time before that and the Olympics. Expo and the riots are probably the two other most newsworthy stories about Vancouver.
That and also getting ranked top place to live in the world a few times the last few years.
Why else is Whistler now hiring Chinese ski instructors en-masse for this Spring and next year? You did see the mass Chinese ski instructor interviews, right?
The Olympics did way more for Vancouver's profile than the tasering.
Beyond that, you are completely delusional. To confirm, you are a homeowner yourself? Just want to prove my point that anyone can get a mortgage.
random thoughts …
There was a tasering that made huge news headlines.
Then there was the Olympics. That sure raise the profile of Vancouver.
But mainly supply and demand. Where are all the new houses? (Surrey)
Where are all the new condos? (not much actually for a city this size.)
Where are record low interest rates? (Remember 2012 when they went 3% for 10 year renewals?)
But all in all, the real truth is …
The real estate here has gone up quite well for over 10 years.
It has just gone up now to the point that it is way ahead of inflation and combined earning power of lots of people.
BC - Bring Cash. No frig!
Now there is the Squamish Gondola. That one attraction has given a whole new perspective on Squamish. It's not just a highway with trees blocking the view - on a route to ski heaven.
SQ is starting to look a lot more like heaven and a lot less like the big Disney up the street.
Go to Toronto GTA â tons more development than anywhere in BC.
I blame the developers for not having the balls to buy more properties and exploit the middle class.
Dude, I really hope your trolling.
If you're trying connect a tasering incident at the airport to the increased profile of the Vancouver real estate market, you really are reaching.
ok spin, here it is.
you own a home in vancouver. thanks to the market, you just made 600K - 1M in the last 2 years, probably the last year. you cash out. you sure as hell can't buy another place in van. you look elsewhere, say squamish. you can buy there and basically be mortgage free due to your fortunate gain in van.
that's it. that's what is happening in squamish. and the more people can get for their place in van, the more they will pay in squamish.
And hey, let's be realistic here too. I don't place ALL the blame all at foreign buyers. Is there an impact, yes. Is the impact bigger than the media and the gov't will let us believe, probably. But I'll bet I could go walk into the bank today and get a 500K mortgage, which says a lot about how retarded that situation is.
People see housing as a guarantee to make money. It's not. Wages aren't that good to keep up with what's happening.
