@ UrbanRenaissance : "Does anyone have any suggestions for types of bikes and/or where to get them?"

I chose my Trek 1200 bike after researching online: I chose a very specific model, after reading about different types to choose the best type for me, reading reviews, weighing pricing, etc, then calling around and finding a dealer that had one in stock. Took it for a test spin of course, to make sure it was comfortable. My criteria was lightweight, fast, but affordable. Your criteria may differ. Because I got it in September, I got the previous year's model at a clearance discount.

If you want a used bike, keep an eye on classifieds such as Kijiji - http://hamilton.kijiji.ca - I myself have had decent success finding secondhand items on there.
