Default Looking for a good bike shop in Montreal

Title says it

Anyone know a place where the techs know their stuff, prices are not over
the top and offer good service?

I have been dealing with a place that has a really good service, they always
do my minor repairs while I wait
and prices are good. But I am not so sure about the tech's ability to do
tougher things like building a wheel
or finding a problem only with the symptoms. He has troubles adjusting the
disk brake of my friend's mountain
bike for instance.

What? You mean there aren't bike shops like the wonderful one in the movie
"2 Seconds" around every corner?

I don't know where you are in the city, but I can recommend a few. Martin
Swiss, 313 Victoria AVe in westmount. They have top notch wrenches and they
do everything from high end roadies to beaters and kids bikes. Also, there
is ABC Cycles on Park ave; Rossi in Lachine; and Regis on Vanhorne, in
Outremont. All are listed in the phone book and are regarded very highly.
Good luck!

Thank you Marlene. I am in Rosemont and I work downtown. Outremont is not
too far away when I go
on Mount Royal to do a little climbing I also do the Canal Lachine path
ever week-end.
