Just how large is it??? I didn't know they were making a larger one than the Greenspoint location. Sounds like fun! I'll definitely try to attend the grand opening, if possible.

About 3 times the size of any of the other locations from the looks of it, if not larger. I havent had the chance to get an up-close look at the store. Its supposed to be a super store like the ones they have on the west coast, can't imagine how bike nights will be at this location

lol, when I worked for Cycle Gear back in the day I was a key holder. Basically it means you open and close the store, you are a full-time employee

It’s the term used by police when they need someone to be contacted when something happens at the store after hours, like an alarm going off or a crime.

They updated their facebook page and said target date for opening is November 6th. I passed by it this weekend and took a peak through the windows and that store is huge.

Only problem i see is Nov 6th is 3 days after the election...
No matter who wins, there's likely to be rioting in the streets, wars, rumors of wars, plagues and pestilence.
And in the midst of the chaos will come me... a pale rider on a pale horse, OK motorcycle but you get the idea.


I'm kidding btw,a group ride sounds like fun! Solracer get a SE ride goin!
