    Mine's still hanging up. The Hub is where I get my biking stuff from. I've known the owner, Cliff, for quite a few years. The service is great there.

    I ride on occasion in the winter to work, as well as usually all through the other 3 seasons. Can't wait to hit the single track with my Fisher. Thinking of selling though to upgrade to a bit more of a downhill bike for some bigger air

    Fuck off Winter already! I can't even think about hitting the trails yet cuz they're still all covered in ice around here!

    I'd like to try my hand at it sometime this year, although all I have for a bike is a Sears special (ie. cheap piece o' junk). I don't know if it or I can handle the trail, but I'll get a helmet and give it a shot anyways at some point.

    Moving to the GTA... Still looking at places, and my current lease isn't up until May 1st, so its not *that* soon. I've got a couple options to keep me in Guelph for another couple months if I can't find a reasonable place in the GTA.. All kind of up in the air still for timing.
