So I decided to stop at the last LBS in my direct area today. Cool place - all sorts of vintage stuff. Was looking at ROad bike - they had Fuji, LeMond, Bianchi, and Raleigh as brands there en masse.
Tried to sell me an '02 Fuji Ace for $519 and then drop some Velocity Spartacus wheels on there to make it $699. Got a bit turned off when they tried to sell me those, considering I dont' look tiny.
Cool place -but WAY overpriced. THey figured I think I was a n00b and thus the pricing. I figure I may go back and try to see if I can get something on the cheap, but the moment I put Spartacus on my bike at my weight is the day that, well, I dont' know what could happen to make me do that.
