It's been suggested that we just go down to Boston to find a decent bike shop but, are there any closer to home? We've got two kids under 3 and that's just not conducive to the 2.5+ hour one way drive down to Boston just to wander around and get lost trying to find bike shops (not to mention a pain if we needed to go back for service or whatever). We live in the Sunapee area so, we're used to having travel to the Upper Valley or Concord/Manchester to do anything. We can handle a 45-60 min drive to find a decent shop, we just don't want to have to deal with Boston!

I like the Goodales (http://www.goodalesbikeshop.com/goodales/dept.asp?s_id=0&dept_name=store+hours+and+locations&dept_id=3188&WT.svl=deptnav1) Nashua location, but there's a Concord and Hookset location as well.
There are four bike shops in Manchester:
The Bike Barn on South Commercial street.
The Alternative Bike Shop on Mast road.
Jakes Bike Shop on Kelley street.
Concord has Revolution Cycles and Eastern Mountain Sports, which I have read on other forums that say it has a good bike department.
Here is a link with some info:

Thanks for the recommendations; I really appreciate them. We've checked out the Goodales in Concord and Hooksett. The guy in Hooksett was very helpful and also said that there were a lot more bikes down in the Nashua shop since that's their main warehouse. I'm still shopping around. :)

I just saw this thread - Nault's in Manchester has a good selection of Trek, Giant, Lemond. They have a very good selection of bikes, and some good closeout deals as well. Check out their site. http://www.naultsbikeshop.com/
We hit up the Hooksett one today, and the saleswoman was quite good; we were pleased and will be heading back for some test rides next weekend--if we're not getting another foot of snow or 3 inches of rain that is.
