Agreed, except -- not all the stores in our locality have clued-in
employees (ie, ones who (a) know what they're talking about, and
just as importantly, (b) will admit when they don't have a clue).
I recommend Caster's in the southern part of the state, Prov Bike
out on Branch, and the Hub down on Brook. For sheer character
you can't beat the Hub, though the other two have a greater range
Stores will sometimes also replace defective stuff; you can take in
your bike if you have a problem and they'll look at it. You won't get
any of this from an on-line place.
