Road/Track bikes?


I just moved here from Montreal and am pretty surprised by the lack of road bikes I see used for transit, it seem there are a lot of cyclist riding cruisers or mountain bikes. I guess I was wondering if there was some reason that I'm missing that these bikes are more convenient here, and if not does anyone know where I could get my hands on a decent used road bike(or better yet a single speed/track/fixedgear)?

Secondly(I know I'm already that annoying new friend...) I'm quite heavily tattooed and thought it would be nice to get a piece done here but am not sure about the conditions of the shops, has anyone got any leads to specific studios where they produce good work(preferably traditional style) and are clean?
