    Favourite LBS in KC, Lawrence, Topeka area?

    I love Bike Source, but they never discount. Great selection and service though. And who else carries Cervelo?

    I'm also a fan of Capp's in Topeka. Gerry, Chris, and Jeremey are all great. Gerry, the owner, is most generous with pricing.

    Of course, there's Sunflower and Cycleworks in Lawrence, but not a big fan of either.

    Where do you shop?

    I'm in good with the guys at the Olathe, KS Bike America... although a lot of people have reported having kind of crappy service with them. I have been a customer of Turner's Cycling and Fitness (Overland Park, KS) since the early 90's and they always have oddball stuff for old bicycles, and overall a decent selection of repair parts and tools. For new bike sales, they're basically a Giant-only shop. Not quite, but almost.

    I like both.

    We got my wife's Townie from BikeSource and I frequent Trek Store as well. Both are very commercialized. They feel more like bike dealerships than anything. They both have competent people, but the atmosphere at either one is just a little too corporate for my taste.

    I wish I lived closer to Leavenworth. Santa Fe Trails is a nice shop.

    I go to the recylery next to Johnny's. They don't carry a lot of new, but they can order pretty much anything and you don't have to wait long for repairs or orders. Good deals.
    I don't know that many shops around here are going to be Cervelo dealers. Do they carry them at Bike Source?
    It happens sometimes, people just explode. Natural causes.

    Yes, BikeSource carries Cervelo. Also Orbea, Giant, and Specialized. Only problem with them is that they never go on sale. Bike Stop appears to be a good store based on how their website looks and some of the sales they have, but never been. Too far a drive from Lawrence.

    Some good sales at Sunflower (Lawrence) today on a bunch of 58cm bikes. Those of you fitting that size, and are looking for a bike, should go check it out.
