I'm heading to KC this weekend to test some road bikes. I was wondering what good stores should I go see? I'd like to stay south of Shawnee Mission PKWY if possible. I've been to bike source on 135th and I will be going back there again. Just looking for other places to hit up, also looking for places that sell used bike also. I'm kinda on a <700 budget.

I'm in Wichita, but have visited a few of the KC shops. Bike Source is probably the best in terms of inventory and breadth. The Trek store at SM Pkwy and I-35 has lots to see, too, but it's all Trek, of course. The others I've stopped at were either high end boutiques with little on the floor or a little run-down with cheap inventory. Several stores report to carry a lot of the non-big-4 brands, but it just means they'll order one for you.
Haven't looked north of the river or east of town.
All in all I was disappointed, outside of Bike Source and the Trek Store. Capps in Topeka is a good one, and Wichita has 2 or 3 as good.
Sorry I didn't see this sooner.
Epic Cycling in the north side of Kansas City is great. So's Cycle City. There's a new place in midtown I just haven't had time to stop and check out yet.
Epic's mostly selling Specialized, but they have a few other brands in stock also. Great staff, probably the best wrenches in town.
