Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

lbs toronto

I'm heading to toronto in two weeks and I want to pick up a nice frame somewhere. Something vintage would be nice but I'm open to anything really.

Let me know of some must visit places!

there are a few places that hoard really nice crap but the owners are really surly and don't like selling said hoarded crap. That being said La Bicicletta, High Park Cycles and Racer Sportif all have really nice stuff.

Apart from that toronto's largest bike stores are Urbane Cyclist, Sweet Pete's Cyclepath, and Duke's Cycle. Cavern Cycles and La Carrera are the two shops that specialize most in fixed gear bikes and the guys who work them are great.

We can offer more in depth reviews and comparisons in the Toronto thread though as we have nothing better to discuss

Operator talks like it's still 1997 and he's just discovered Quake 2.
