Summit County or Denver metro area!!!

Aloha!!!
Anyone in the summit County or Denver metro area that could recommend a LBS? I've been to three in summit and have found a bike I'm interested in but would like to check a few more out before I make a final decision. As of now, I'm leaning towards the trek marlin 29er. I know it's not a steel frame, and I know it has front suspension. But it has a lockout and trek has a awesome warranty on their frames. I tried a giant that's comparible to the trek but customer services is huge to me and the place that has the trek is way better to me. Plus I get a discount on the trek. I also tried a khs alite 40 which was a steel frame with rigid fork, but the biggest it comes in is 19" and I found out 21"frame fits me perfect. Mahalo for any info!!

There is an awesome Bike shop in Castle Rock (I know it's a bit of a drive) but the owner is incredibly friendly and his stuff are great. His shop recently burned down from a fire and he lost just about everything. He does not have his new bikes on hand in the new store yet, but he will order it for you and youll have it in a week. VERY nice guy. I bought my bike at Bicycle Village, after "losing" my Trek manual and cd, and than not adjusting the cables I chose to have Castle Rock Bike and Ski check out my bike and he took care of the fit, the cable adjustments the deraullier issue and trued my wheel all for $15. He earned my respect and I will go to him for EVERYTHING. I know it's 'bout a 20 minute drive from you, but it's hard finding the right people for service.
