Walmart- No rack...I don't go there often, but usually drive for a cheaper load of groceries (no bike trailer yet).
2 local grocery stores- 1 has a rack, 1 doesn't. I prefer the one without a rack for selection, but end up at the one with a rack usually.
Pitiful nearby mall- 2 small racks...seldom used. Last time my son and I went there one of the store owners walked past and said it was nice to see the racks being used.
Downtown small businesses- No racks (except the bike shop).
I don't usually mind winging it and chaining up to any solid structure. At work there is no rack. I chained up to a light pole for awhile until my frame got scratched up by the concrete base. Now I chain to a heavy picnic table....other locations of the company I work for have racks, but not the off-campus office buildings...wth?
Hey man I heard thatMust have LBS lineage at best; department store bikes are an automatic ticket for the not-real cyclist club as an unworthy lowlife.
The Bearded Fred: Only known cyclist left in the world to be 100% natural and completely free from performance enhancing drugs. Also known for self reliance, amazing talent for satisfying the women and great guitar riffs. Honestly, a full racing kit is absolutely the most ridiculous looking stuff you can wear short of a clown suit."
