We are among Canada’s top dealers for Norco, Marin, Giant and Cannondale. The secret? Information and selection. We ask you the right questions and show you the right bikes. Next, we find the right size—guaranteed. We carry everything from the tires to fit your CCM Flyer to the latest Smartwool socks.
Our head techs, Doug and Dave, have been fixing bikes for a total of 60 years. (Holy Crap!) For the last 30 years, if you’d biked past the doc late at night in spring and summer you would have our techs burning the midnight oil, attempting to get all the bikes fixed with 24 hours. We often repair between 50 and 100 bikes in one day.
They recently attended SRAM University thinking they could teach them something, but ended up learning something.
At ExpoCycle 2006 (the Canadian industry trade show) Dave placed second in the mechanics contest, nearly winning the final event which was speed building a bike. He has many convincing excuses. Doug loves everything from classic Sturmey Archer 3 speed hubs, to hydraulic brakes. He has been known to true wheels with a headlamp when the power was out.
Gerald, Dave, Greg and Don are certified Triathlon bike fitters—trained at the F.I.S.T institute run by Dan Empfield. (he invented the specialty triathlon bike) We then designed and built (with design and machining superstars, Dennis Harrigan and Larry Fast) the finest tri-fitting machine in the world.
Dave has tons of experience in bicycle mobility for physically handicapped people, particularly children. He designed and we build special heavy duty training wheels for people with balancing problems, but who still want the freedom of a bicycle.
In the winter Doug runs basic mechanics courses. And if you are interested in becoming a mechanic, phone today. We’ve got a program to get you started.
