This week I have accomplished much to prepare for a cycling lifestyle.
If you saw my previous thread I followed several suggestions. Including a stationary bike, which I tried for about an hour and things went fairly well.
I went to Bicycle Village this week couple days in a row to try the different bikes. The staff was very friendly. When I told someone I knew about wanting to get a bike from there he was really offended I went to a "box store" instead of a smaller family owned bike shop. He said it's the general attitude of the biking community to avoid big box. Is this true? Is it bad form to go to a corporate store for my equipment? Will I be ousted if I do?
Also for those curious I did try several different bikes I think im gonna go with a road. For some reason the hybrids seemed to have more "drag" if that makes sense.
