My name is Sergio and I am in the Southern California area, the San Gabriel Valley area to be more exact, and I need help in finding a bike shop to fit my budget. I currently own a mountain bike that I bought for about $60 just to see if I could be consistent w/ a cycling program. Since I have succeeded in doing so, I now wish to purchase a road bike. Today I visited Bike-Rite in El Monte and Temple City Bicycle Shop. At Bike-Rite the cheapest bike was $700, and the Temple City Bicycle Shop was closed, but what I could see from the window, prices tags hovered around the $1000+ range. So in closing, I was wondering if anyone can refer me to a shop in the local area that would carry a decent road bike for mainly recreational use in the $200-$300 range. Thank you.
