look on the various bike manufacturers websites to find your local bike shops for the various brands of bikes.
+1 for Yorktown Cycles. Much cheaper than Julios and personally they'll go above and beyond to make you happy. Full disclosure, I'm a bit biased as some of the people who work there are my teammates.Sisophous said:Thanks for the info CBAR. Chappaqua is not too out of the way. I'm happy with the work done on my bikes at shops in my area, just the salespeople and stock of Road bikes in lower Westchester is lacking.
If you are interested in the Trek, then you'll need to check out Bicycle World (Eric is the owner and a roadie). Of the choices, they are the only Trek dealer. Maybe Danny's in Scarsdale is a Trek dealer...not sure.Sisophous said:Thanks CHT. Thur or Fri I plan on hitting at least 3 shops and test ride what is in my price range and sized for me at 57/58 cm. I like the Trek XO-1 from what I read and reviews written and hopefully some shop will have one. My plan is to have the shop that I buy the bike, hook up my computer, put on my pedals and put inside the tires the orange plastic tire strips I saved from my old bike. I've never had flats since using these strips, prior to them I used to weekly get flats.
Xo-1 ..... cyclocross... too bad you just missed out on JORBA-fest this past Saturday. Trek, Jamis (and Giant) were there offering demos.Sisophous said:Appreciate it tednugent, I have them listed to check out. I'll see what comes of the place in the Bronx first. I haven't ridden the Trek XO-1 but it sounds like something I'd enjoy. Tires can be switched with enough clearance to put on thick treads for rough riding. Hopefully I can test ride one at the Bronx shop first.
I guess you haven't noticed my avatar. It's called *sarcasm*.Sisophous said:Good deal phOenix, thanks, I noted it. Indeed the Cannondales are the Rosie O'Donnell of the Biking industry, quite repulsive to look at.
