My favorite is not the most local of LBSs, but in any case.
Fit to Be Tried bikes in Sanford, NC is a really kickass shop. I'd go there more often, if it weren't a 35 mile drive. There are a couple shops here in Fayetteville that are pretty good, nothing too stellar, but good shops. Hawleys I like better than the Bicycle Shop - I go to Hawleys for most of my basic bike needs, but use the Bicycle Shop for service on my NRS (they're the area Giant dealer).
FTBT however, is where I got my Vela. The owner/operator of the shop does sales, offers lifetime service on all the bikes, and works on 'em too. Very helpful, friendly, and gives great individual attention. Just tries harder than the shops here in Fayetteville, and that made the difference, as I could have gotten the Litespeed at several other area shops.
