How do you know who to trust in a bike shop? Everyone in every bike shop speaks so authoritately as if their word is the word. It scares me.
How do I know if they are steering me towards a certain bike just because they can make the most money on it or want to unload it or for some other reason? Scary again.
I'm looking at a Devinci amsterdam (non-disk brakes; don't need them, I think) to ride around town, enjoy myself, and not worry too much about tire reliability or making it up hills -- it's very hilly here in Vancouver, BC.
Thank you everybody
