 Poor selection of bikes, despite the large volume. The aim here is quantity, not quality. Inventory is poorly managed. This location is only a few years old, and simultaneously manages to come across as unfinished and tired at the same time. Almost no mountain bikes. Parts inventory is nearly non existent, expect to wait at least a week for any component beyond the most basic tube or repair part.

Employees are friendly and do their best to be helpful, given their lack of resources and support. However, their are very few staff truly knowledgable of the bike industry as a whole, most salespersons are hired for their enthusiasm rather than experience. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, just don't expect answers to technical questions, or part queries.

One saving grace, the repair department is competent and professional, with reasonable prices and good ethics. They are often busy, but if you must speak to someone knowledgable, you'll have much better luck with service than sales.

 Terrible service, felt like the staff didn't want me in the store, I wasn't welcomed and I had to find one of them to help me. Overpriced.

 Agreed. Very pricey. They wanted to charge me $2 a spoke, and $50 for the build of a wheel. Each... Rape.

Competing bike shop did it for $1 a spoke and $35 for the build. Their Mississauga location is much better, EVEN cheaper. Which makes me scratch my head.
