So while sitting at one today, sipping an extra large regular, after a leisurely ride in the rain and cold I thought about this thread....

There are many themed threads on this forum which invite inmates to post their bike pictures but, I couldn't find one like this one.

So here goes.... post a picture of your bike @ a Tim Hortons...

Mission, BC, on our way south to WA state for a 2 week road trip this past summer. We had to stop for one more Timmy's fix before we crossed over at Sumas.

3 months ago, here in Kingston, they went to the 'new' sizes.

Which are the american sizes, as you pointed out.

They say that the rest of Canada will see the change in the new year.

Some consummate corporate arrogance right there, they're going to annoy every single customer they have.

When you order a large double-double, you'll get an extra large.

And to top it all off, what is considered a canadian institution is going with their american subsidiaries' standards. Some marketing genius sold them on this idea, and he really doesn't understand canadians.

Pissing me off enough to take some of my money and spend it at their competitor's instead. A coffee here and a coffee there, and it adds up.

I think its already happened to some extent in Toronto's downtown core where the small is a medium.


Fortunately, my Extra Large is still an Extra Large.....

I see no reason that a little snow and cold should mean I shouldn't ride.
