Last I checked, the Vancouver store is in no way affiliated with the T.O. mail order company..

Vancouver La Bicicletta started in 1980's by Guiseppe Cramerotti. Sold to Great Western Bicycle, and Guiseppe moves to Toronto to set up another La Bicicletta. Supposed to split up Canada for mail-order; Western Canada orders from Vancouver, eastern Canada orders from Toronto. 2 stores have a falling out in early 1990's, then become separate stores, with the same name. Guiseppe then sells Toronto store to Henry, moves back to Vancouver to open Il Campoine, 2 blocks away from La Bicicletta. Henry hits the big-time with internet and mail-order business, though still runs an EXCELLENT LBS. If you're ever in Toronto, roadies must visit to drool!!

Guiseppe just opened his new Campione, at 8th(?) and Burrard in Vancouver. Very nice showroom, and he appears to be getting back into selling frames other than Cramerotti. For the past couple of years his frame selection has been reduced.

Henry is a great guy, I've done lots of mail order from La Bicicletta (T.O.).
