So I am doing some saddle shopping this weekend, so I want to visit a couple stores to try out some different saddle manufacturers. I have figured one store wont have every saddle out their, so I have decided to vist a couple a see which saddles I like (if I do find one I like).
So that said I have visited Performance Bikes and Revolution Cycles, but wanted to see other bike shops in the area. I live in Gaithersburg and don't mind going a little out of the way to find a shop. So can I get some recommendation on shops to visit for my saddle trying weekend?
All American Bikes in Damascus http://aabikes.com/
City Bikes in Chevy Chase http://citybikes.com/
Princeton Sports in Columbia http://www.princetonsports.com/
Race Pace in Columbia http://racepacebicycles.com/
Family Bike shop in Crofton http://familybikeshop.com/
College Park Bicycle, Mt Airy Bicycles http://www.bike123.com/
Those are all the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Gaithersburg Bikes is across from Costco in Gaithersburg, and you can try Avalon Cycles on my end in Germantown, but they are in the middle of changing owners right now. +1 for All American in Damascus, bought my Trek there. Good guys.

Bicycle Pro Shop:
One location in Georgetown, next to Revolution
New location on Duke St. in Alexandria
Capitol Hill Bikes is also a good shop.
I live out to the west, so I know these only by reputation: City Bikes, College Park, Conte's Bikes (Arlington). A co-worker swears by Conte's, even though it's way out of their way to go there.
BTW, google is your friend. Enter either of these search strings, check the map, start calling:
"bicycle shops near washington dc" "bicycle shops near arlington va"

Although Conte's is a regional franchise, the owner is hands-on and is always pleasant to deal with.
