Hey everyone. My girlfriend is back home in Rochester working for the summer and Im gonna go visit her in mid July (20 more days to be exact). Just wondering if there is any good local bike shops there and (as some of you might know from my other thread) in Toronto?

Store name and addresses would be great.

And no, Im not bringing my bike... bummer.

Thanks in advanced.

The bike shop of choice in Rochester NY is Peddlers. It's a relatively small shop, but they stock the "real" bikes. Bob DeRoo is the owner. He coaches road racers for NYS Olympics, too. I think it's on West Henrietta Road. Tell him Paul Stewart sent you (no financial stake -- we're just hunting buddies).

Well Im back, and what an amazing trip. But not to bore you guys with all the details, we traveled on Queen St in Toronto and I went into Cavern. Pretty cool shop. I really wouldnt mind living there. EVERYONE was on a bike. So crazy. It was like Richmond but times 10.

Anyway, I didnt get a chance to go to Peddlers. I drove past it though. I spent way too much $, so I knew if I went in there, I might buy something. Maybe next time I go up.

But thanks for the suggestions everybody.
