I am finally getting tired of lugging my 25+ lbs. Reno up hills and what not, so I decided that it was time to get me a "nice" frame built up with DA or Record hopefully weighing in around 16 lbs. or so, I am thinking a LOOK 585, Scott Addict/CR1 or a Canyon Ultimate CF.
So here is my problem, the LBS that sponsors the team only carries Trek, LeMond and Orbea, none of those are anywhere on my list of frames to look into. Is it be considered poor form to ride a frame/brand that your LBS does not carry, I have already got a few comments that lead me to believe this. Also, should I just suck it up and grab one of the three mentioned above and enjoy my 15% off on the frame?
