Only thing I can suggest is to try googling bike shop in your area
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Hey there,

I've been to many shops in Toronto and finally have picked out my favourite few. If you have a membership with MEC, they have a great selection of just about everything you need. Memberships are only $5 for a lifetime so its definitely worth it. King and Peter

My newest favourite that I recently discovered is Urbane Cyclist, which is also a co-op but dedicated to cycling. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and great selection, good prices. Also 10% off everything if you're a student.

There are plenty of more shops, but with these two I don't find the need to go elsewhere.

Good luck!

Would second that MEC recommendation.........have been a member for a while and found they have most stuff. Only better place might be Niagara Cycle, but it is more than a subway ride away.
