So, I had an accident 4 weeks ago and while I'm on the mend, my Specialized 61cm Secteur has a cracked fork and the LBS tells that it will take 2 months to get a replacement fork. The gent responding on the Specialized web site says this is because Specialized gets the fork from another company. Well...
- I like the Secteur and have put just under 9K miles on it in 3 years
- The LBS I bought it from never did make me feel like I mattered.
- I don't care why I can't get the fork in a reasonable amount of time, I want my bike back.
- I think I'm done w/this LBS and w/Specialized
I'd love to buy my next bike while I wait on the repair...sadly, I have other priorities (2 kids in college) and so while I have my eye on said "next bike", I will be riding it in my sleep for the time being.
Question: Where can I find a bike now for cheap? At 6'4" 200 I need a bigger frame and while Craigslist has lots of bikes, none in my size--and I've been monitoring my local area (Orlando) as well as a couple of other larger cities "near by" (Jax & Tampa). Are there used bike stores that one could visit virtually?
This is sucking.--John
