I know of the two big ones, but what are the others?

Currently shopping for a Christmas gift and both are sold out of what I'm looking for.

BSP on Burrard carries a decent selection of road stuff, lots of Cannondale R-series, and I think I saw some Six13s in there. They have from the R700 (105) to R1000 and R3000 (full Dura Ace). Plenty of co2, seatbags, etc.

If you want to buy somebody a whole bike, Simon's has some 2005 model year Specialized Allez series (Sport and Elite) hanging on the ceiling, their price will probably be pretty good with 2006 stuff now arriving.

Most bike shops are starting too carry More road stuff. There's a new tri shop were Black Sheep used to be that has a small but quality selection.

You're in North Delta right? Have you checked out South Shore cycle (80th and Scott road)? They seem to have the most roadie stuff of any of the shops around these parts.

Thanks! I actually stopped in there Tuesday night and found part of what I'm looking for. Still would like to find more though.

What I was looking for was bike training DVDs.

We are setting up a training room downstairs with a TV, VCR [HTML_REMOVED] DVD.

I did buy the Carmicheal mtn bike training video from Caps in North Delta but would still like to buy some of the Spinergy "spin" training videos.

Before Christmas I called Bicycletta (sp?) [HTML_REMOVED] Campiogne (sp) but both were sold out, but expected more in sometime in the new year.
