Hey guys, I am interested in purchasing my first road bike and would like to go to a competent shop and get fitted properly and test ride some bikes. My local bike shop is not very professional and in all honesty they make me feel uncomfortable in there store. They overprice all of there stuff and are there to sell bikes whether they fit you or not. I am 6' 265lbs and they sold me a 17" (Seat Tube Length, Center to Top is how they measure it) 2002 Specialized Rockhopper mountain bike. From my limited understanding this bike is way to small. They let you test ride bikes only in a 100x100 foot parking lot that is filled with cars. Enough of my rant about them.
I am looking for a good bike shop in nassau county or ill even drive to suffolk or queens. If there is a place with amazing deals and a great staff ill drive to brooklyn, bronx, manhatten, staten island, New jersey I dont really care. I am looking at trek, felt, and fuji so im not sure how many places carry any of those.
Any places you could recomend would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
