    Can't find FS to try at any LBS

    No Jamis dealers in the surrounding 40 miles stock FS. Would you trust ordering one of the right size off the internet without ever getting to truly know how it "feels" first?

    You know, I've seen a dwinlding stock of FS bikes at my LBS's too. I think owners are putting a lot of cash in lower end ($350-$500) bikes since high gas prices have those selling like hotcakes right now.

    That's odd... my favorite shop sells wayy to many FS bikes, and a lot of low end hardtails. They had no upper end / midrange hardtails to speak of so I had to buy from the ****** ******* Shop

    I think it might be because I live in Eugene, OR. The Willamette Valley as a whole is pretty broke.

    Colins has lots of Specialized FS; Hutch's has a few as well, but other than that I haven't found many. A couple downhill Konas but that's not really what I'm looking for
