bikes made in Toronto

Toronto, 2014.05.27

I've noticed some new brands of bikes around, of late; it turns out there are two new bike manufacturers in Toronto. One's Simcoe bikes, the other's called Gallant. They've both got two offerings, and those two offerings are surprisingly similar across the two brands (if indeed they are separate operations).

I wish these local businesses well. The frames all look much too small for me, but the designs are perfect for the city with the designs featuring light frames, sturdy tires, and gear assemblies ranging from single-speed up to 7-speeds.

I've noticed men riding step-through frames, recently, and welcome the development.

Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces.
