Best Bicycle Shop in T.O.?

Best bike shop in Toronto?
I've heard good things about Cyclepath(Bloor), Duke's and Chain Reaction.

Please share your experiances or suggest any other shops?

Also i found a Specialized Hardrock Sport(sweet bike!) for $500, does that seem like an okay deal?

Cyclepath at Bloor and Dufferin are very nice people but I would never trust them with a bike. I bought a
new bike in there about 5 yrs ago and nearly got killed on it 5 minutes after I left the store. They had not
tightened the stem onto the headset properly. They wouldn't tell me which 'mechanic' was responsible for
the screw up, so I don't know if he/she is still there or not.

Duke's is excellent, as is Urbane ( near CityTV).

I bought my last bike at Broadway Cycle (next door to Cyclepath on Bloor). Back then (about 2 years ago), they had a really good warranty with free service etc.

You're going to get a lot of recommendations...but Duke's is decent...although a friend of mine just complained how long it has taken them to fix his wheel. I don't know if I would go back...last time they did a tune-up and did something weird with the shifting. I said this is odd...they said it's normal...I said I've ridden over 10k with the bike..I *know* what is normal with it...they fiddled with it for less than a couple of minutes and problem solved.

Urbane Cyclist is pretty good and very friendly. My g/f uses them and she thinks they know what they are doing.

InVita Sport is a great bike shop that specializes in Wilier and Pinarello road bikes. The shop carries Campagnolo and Shimano components and lots of top of the line clothing for serious cyclists. All the mechanics are Winterborne certified too. If you're really into cycling check this shop out, you won't be sorry. Great people, very helpful and trustworthy. Go to for more info.

Beautiful Downtown S…
In Scarborough I have always been happy with D'ornellas on Lawrence.
They have a great selection of tools, bikes, parts and accessories . That along with the helpful staff and the fact that they are local to me make them my choice of bike shop.

How did ya get the Hardrock for $500 when they have it on sale for $549? Did you have to bargain, cash on hand?

I need a better bike.......I can't stand my Yukon Giant. Too heavy, Too slow.
