Kennewick Cycle and fitness is next to Aquatropics around the corner of Clearwater and 395, They carry Trek and Bowflex equipment I believe. Farther down Clearwater, accross the street from Winco (the best prices around for groceries) is Markees, they carry Specialized and Cannondale I believe they have another shop in the uptown shopping center in Richland.
I personally like Kennewick and Richland, seems to be getting a bit crowded tho.(any town over 5000 population is crowded for me) Richland may be the more expensive rent if you plan on renting.
Lots of cyclists in Kennewick and Richland. Dont know about Pasco, West Pasco near Rd 68 is nice and close to country roads for riding.
Check out the Tri City bicycle club, they have a lot of rides leaving from Richland.
Music Stores? You got me, I believe there is one on Kennewick Ave and One in Richland on George Washington Way. Uptown shopping center might be a good bet for what your looking for.

I live in Pasco off Rd 100, but I've lived in all three cities since I moved here 16yrs ago. It's a nice area with quick access to the bike path along the Columbia. There is a nice, gentle loop along both sides of the Columbia which makes for a relaxing ride. There's a great number of good routes around.
Try poking around the Chinook club website. There's club organized "training rides" which translates to club races (seasonal TT series, a spring rode race series and a fall MTB series). The Kennewick Court Club has evening rides which are popular with a variety of abilities including club riders on Mo, Wed & Fri. Weekend Chinook rides are available. The Saturday ride from a local coffee shop is usually good for ripping the legs off.
I haven't ridden with the Tri City Bicycle Club in many years. I think they ride more leisurely. They do sponsor a spring century ride which is fun.
[edit: court club rides are mon, wed, fri (not tues)]

I may have to goto tri-cities one of these days and do some networking, I ride alone here in Warden and it would sure be nice to meet some other riders.
