Asselstine Country in Blackstock, Ontario (North of Oshawa). A longtime family business, lots of respect for women customers, competitive prices on their bikes, and reliable, honest service. They have several female employees, and the guys are great to deal with too. Sorry they're not in the UK. :)

Sorry Mike, I did mean to ask you about the reactions to your dog. :oops: How did I manage get your posting name mixed up with Lisa's posting? Eyes of a "certain age," combined with bifocals occassionally lead me into embarrassing online mistakes. It is great to hear the positive reactions to Hector...
