    My LBS hates pcad

    They're more into recumbents and commuting than roadies.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    it's because they don't carry cervelo.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Yeah. They have a pretty good house band that drops by once in a while and lays down some tunes.

    Which bike shop?
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
    "Stop Ruining my joke!", "No, a joke implies humor attached at no additional cost"
    So many sayings, so little sig space.

    Who can blame them? But they are at the end of a growing list.

    That house band hasn't played anything good since 1984.

    They've been in business less than a year and a half and already are moving into a bigger space. The poor economy has actually been pretty good for them. And if you think there is a lot of money to be made on high-end road bikes, you should try pricing out a recumbent trike sometime. People drive from hundreds of miles for their recumbents, believe it or don't.

    What is a 'Tubus rack'? A 'Rohloff hub'? I know about the Brooks, you've never been able to give me one of those stupid boat anchors.

    My LBS does not have a computer.

    Bailey has his own bowl and space at the LBS.

    Bailey does not hate Pcad.

    Therefore.........my LBS does not hate Pcad.

    They are too expensive for innate taste.

    As long as Bailey and Sam don't play too rough, Sam would be welcome also.
