Make a local purchase, support your neighbourhood!
Shop The Neighbourhood is an initiative of Yellow Pages Group (YPG), a company with a century-long legacy of working with Canada’s small businesses, helping them attract customers and contributing to the growth of local economies.
Small businesses create jobs, grow neighbourhoods, attract customers and play a large role in the creation of dynamic communities. As a consumer, every purchase you make at a local business has a direct impact on the surrounding neighbourhood and the local economy.
Shipping Your Bike? Don't Forget The Padding! - You can avoid most damage during shipping by packing your bicycle carefully. Use pipe insulation to wrap and protect the frame tubes. Ask us for a fork block. These plastic pieces fit between the fork blades to prevent bending should a heavy object land on your bike crate. We also have axle caps, which prevent axle ends poking through the box. When you're packing your bike, pay attention to what's touching what, too. Ensure that there's as little metal-to-metal contact as possible to minimize damage. Put cardboard between metal parts that might touch. Inspect the packed bike for things that might rub, poke or scratch other parts of the bicycle. One of the more fragile parts of any bike is the rear derailleur. Protect this by shifting into the largest cog. This moves the derailleur closer to the wheel where it's less likely to get bent on the trip.
