I have a gap in my bike stable and it's driving me crazy. Worse, I have a reimbursement check from our insurance company for a sizable amount burning a whole in my pocket, and for the life of me I can't get any help when I walk into a bike shop.
Even if I did, there's no guarantee I'd buy from your shop, but if I have to walk in with a sign around my neck declaring "I'm looking to spend around $2K" then fuck you.
Two more possible shop visits this week, and if they don't go well I might just be waiting until the fall at this point.
