Here is a message from Aaron Johnson, one of the owners of Cyclopedia about what you can expect and learn from visiting your local bike shop (LBS).
Things to know:
We opened bike shops cus we love bicycles and love talking about them and the benefit of living the lifestyle.
So ask us all the questions you haven’t had answered yet.
Need more attention? Pick Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, these are usually the slackest days for us.
Saturday and Sunday are the craziest.
Yes, tight clothing is totally acceptable to wear on a bike, it’s very windy out there, baggy clothing slows us down. We hate that.
Shops are more bad ass than the Internet when it comes to bike sales, as we know you will come back with any problems you have, and so we like to get you fitted right the first time. On line Folks don’t care if you even get the right color.
Shops fill in the small cracks of hidden info within the first years of learning the sport. Try asking a cat 1 racer some questions on bicycle lube… Not easy to get more than one Syllable replies. You can ask us what a cat 1 is later.
We help you and you keep us talking about cycling.
……which we love.
