    Used bicycle shops in Toronto/Hamilton area

    Hi: I'm visiting my son in Hamilton ON in April and we wanted to pick up a late 80s or early 90s mountain bike. So far, I've been able to find just one shop... Backpeddling in Guelph.

    Does anyone know of any bike shops or bike coops that sell older mountain bikes?

    Backpeddling is an amazing shop, period. I know for a fact that there are no shops to rival it in Toronto or Hamilton.

    However, there's Parts Unknown in Kensington Market, which is good for a browse.
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

    Thanks, I think we'll give Backpeddling a visit. My son is in Hamilton and I would prefer to avoid the long drive to Toronto.
    From the web site, sounds like they have a huge inventory so I'm sure I'll find something...

    Check out MACycle Co-op, it is located at McMaster University. Might want to check to make sure they are open before you are driving out. As it is student-run, the summertime hours may be quite short.
