Toronto area Brooks Saddle dealer?

Does anyone know if any bike shops in the GTA carry Brooks saddles?

I'm pretty sure Cycle Solutions on Parliament had a few lying around. Call them before you go to confirm model and availability.

Cycle Cambridge (in Cambridge) has them too.

I bought mine at Urbane. I've also seen them at Curbside on Bloor, between Bathurst and Spadina.

Incidentally, I'm still on the fence regarding mine; I can't find the positioning to give me the bliss that most owners talk about. I can't beleive it's a "break in" problem, as I've got over 1000k on it. Recently (400 k ago) tensioning it has helped. I was reluctant to tension it, as per common Internet advice, likely based originally on a Sheldon Brown article.

The Brooks guy on toronto's craigslist. He's pretty famous but I'm not sure if he has any left. They were going for crazy prices!

I would've got one myself but I'm not really a Brooks kinda guy.
