Cyclops, Mariposa, Marinoni, Edwins, Proctor, Trure North, Jester, Cervelo, Argon18.... no collection of prestige Canadian bike brands is complete without a little-known Guru.
Until 2016, Guru was an groundbreaking Montreal high end bike company. They had big plans; they were trying to do it all - making frames in steel, titanium, and hand-made (in Montreal) carbon. They could have been the next Cervelo but, alas, their reach exceeded their grasp as they say.
links to Guru background stories are below.

A most interesting bike. Georgena Terry was a pioneer in designing frames specifically for women. Women typically have shorter upper torso relative to their legs and so need a shorter top tube. A shorter top tube is hard to achieve. but smaller 650c wheels allow it. Plus, the tubing is wxcellent Reynolds 631 steel. Perfectly adequate Tiagra 9S drivetrain. This is a great all round bike for a woman in the 5'8-10" range.

One of the most beautiful bikes I've ever owned. Tubing is a special oversize which is unusually brazed OVER the lugs instead of under the lugs.

I would also sell just the frameset. $1500 CAD.
