Depending on your flavour of bicycle (some of us like the retro bikes), you can also look in used book stores for old cycling magazines and books, or even non-cycling magazines that did an issue all about bicycles (ie. The August 1971 edition of Playboy Magazine).

If you live in Toronto I recommend Eliot's Bookshop at 584 Yonge Street, 416-925-0268. There is also several other used book shops on Yonge Street you can visit and browse, but Eliot's is the best (I buy all my Conan books there).

If your bicycle is basically junk and you don't know what to do with it then SELL IT TO ME. I will use it for parts. I will give you a fair price ($20 to $30) for your old clunker just so I can rip it apart for parts.

If you need repairs check out my Bicycle Mechanic Services in Banbury-Don Mills.
