    Loyalty To LBS Part 2

    First of all, thank you to all who responded to my "Loyalty To LBS" post of several weeks ago. The delema was, there was a bike at shop A (Not my reguler bike shop) that I really liked but it was a brand that shop B (My favorite bike shop) did not carry. So....as several of you fine folks advised me to do, I went to shop B and explained the situation. Shop A has a bike in the Trek pilot series that I really liked. What do you offer that would be similar? Sequoia! Problem solved! I picked up my new bike Friday after work and I'm loving it.
    Thanks again for your advice.
    Life is good! John K.

    Those are very similar bikes. I can easily see how one could substitute one for the other. Glad to hear that things worked out for you.

    The Sequoia is a nice bike. In fact, if you paint in another color and put TREK down the side it would look just like my Trek 1800C

    I'm glad to see your LBS was able to solve your problem. I've had such great service from my LBS that I don't even consider going elsewhere to buy bikes or have them serviced. It's a three generation shop and they're very knowledgeable and customer oriented.

    Sequoia or Trek- No choice really but you made the right one.
