Winter's snow is melting, spring sun is shining, and bike paths are officially re-opening, so you know what that means: Montreal bike season is here.

You're gonna wanna brush up on your bike etiquette, but you'll also want to get your bike in gear (pun intended). To help you find the best bike shop for your needs, we, with some help with our pals at Allo Vélo, have got a legit list of Montreal's many bike shops.
