If you can't support your local shop support someonelse's local shop that has a web site like Two Wheel Transit or North Divison Bicycle. Both shops are run by very cool people. Two Wheel has lots of roady stuff and excellent clothing selection and North Divison has lots of used bikes etc. Both have very good lines of new road and mtn. bikes and make smart "buys". ( Two Wheel bought ALL of the helmets (Giro?) had on sale-(several thousand).
