Another sign of the rise of the Bicycle
I was in the LBS today to order my Surly Long Haul Trucker, I was concerned about the bicycle availability since it is popular and i know that Stores have been having a problem keeping things in stock. Good news bike was in stock. Bad news, the jannd Extreme racks i wanted were not, neither were most other racks! we kept hopping around on the Quality Bike site trying to find a set of racks that would look good together, were in stock and didn't cost as much as the Surly Nice Racks! Finally ended up with Axion racks, the bike shop owner says they have been running into shortages of things they never did before like racks and fenders being sold out. Kinda made the bike buildout session a little more complicated than I planned, on the other hand it's good to see bikes gaining popularity.
