KGS Bikes in San Antonio apparently is focused on selling to 40+ customers who want the "finer things in life." The store positions cycling as "the fountain of youth," and mentions that custom bikes from $6,000 to $14,000 are (just) "sturdy, reliable work-horse" bikes but suggests that *real* bikes will run you up to $30,000.
Is this really the world's premiere ultra high-end bicycle boutique? (As the proprietor claims)
Or is it the world's most pretentious LBS?
I was following a link about "custom bike builders" when I saw this site and since I'd never heard of them I checked it out. But even though in promotional material the shop portrays itself as a "custom bike builder" I think they're just taking orders on custom frames and putting the bike together for you...there is a nice gallery showing the owner "assembling" bikes (meaning, doing the build up for a photographer).
Seems like they sell some pretty nice bikes but there seems to be a Texas-sized dose of b.s. that goes along with a bike from KGS, IMHO.
Since the site, and several related articles all suggest this business is aimed at the 50+ crowd (at least the 40+ crowd) I thought most of you guys might already be customers...
