Very nice! Upgraded butting all around, definitely a "racers frame" of the time.

Anyone holding out for a Canyon and for them to come to Canada in the spring? If you haven't already, sign up for their newsletter. Nothing I've seen so far.

It looks like their MY 2021's are coming out by end of October for everywhere except Canada. I'd be curious if they refresh the Endurace as it's due for an update.

I'd definitely consider it!

probikeit no longer has free shipping to Canada.

I am looking to buy GP5000s before next season but am waiting for them to bring back the free shipping or a hot deal.

Is there any way to save this tire? I was riding along and heard tapping, thought there was some tar or something stuck to my tire, stopped and saw this.


Took the tire off once I walked home and looks like I have a pinhole puncture, though I didn't lose air pressure.

If I need a new tire, any recommendation on tires and tubes, where I can buy them? This is a kenda courier 700 x 38 . Rather not deal with my LBS, they were snobby last time I came in with a Costco bike.

Hi
I am looking to buy a Lezyne light kit. So far looks like Probikekit pricing seem a bit more reasonable, but main concern is not knowing how much duties/customs I'll be charged.
Are there other places RFD would recommend?
Thanks in advance.

Until Customs / CP can get their shit together, you likely won't see the return of (useful) free shipping.

Merlin, CRC or Wiggle all let you pre select duties paid at checkout. No surprises, few days at your door.

Thanks for the info.
I just tried Wiggle and couldn't find an option to include pre-paid duties.
Any idea where is that?

Sorry, tire is done

Pull the tack out, if the tire goes flat then you can either patch the tube or replace it
There is no tack, it's the tire bulging. I cant find a hole in the tire itself, only a tiny needle sized hole in the tube.
