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.

The point isn't revenge. It is justice. Revenge is like a wave that washes up on shore - it always washes back out again. Justice is like the shore - it's still there after the wave comes and goes.
