    Canada version of Performance Bike

    Is there a similar cycling chain store like Performance Bike in US?

    Thanks

    There is something similar to REI, namely MEC (www.mec.ca). But nothing similar to Nashbar or Performance that I know of.

    Don't forget bikeroom.com (although some people have had bad experiences with them but I am not one of them).

    There is one in Montreal on rue St Denis - Trek dealers. They also had quite a good selection of other high end bikes. I went there last month for Bontrager tires.

    And it's not like their service is spectacular enough to compensate.

    sorry to take so long: Cycle Therapy is grossly over priced. Velotique are pretty decent people.

    The Performance Bike on St. Denis is a great store, but it's not related to the Online store that's being referred to in this thread. I've bought stuff from both.
