Bikeshops in the US

Hi

I am going to spend my hollyday - 6 weeks - mith my family in USA and would like to visit some bikeshops. Can you help me? Im not only looking for the big or cheap ones but also those with atmosphere.
Were going to New York City, Denver, Moab (one day on MTB on the slickrock - only day on bike for six weeks:eek Los Angeles and San Francisco plus off course a lot of other places, but these will be those where I will have the time to spend looking at bikes. Im mostly a roadie but do mountainbike.
And by the way. Do you know a good bookstore in New York where I can get books about cycling. Like Michael Barrys "Inside the Postal Bus" and that kind and also about training.

Thank you

Zach, Denmark

Metro Bikes at 88th Street and Lexington (New York City). An ok shop only, but you can rent a bike and go ride in Central Park. Call to reserve.

metro are generelly pretty mediocre stores; rental of course depends on where you are, but if you're on the upper west side, go to master bikes (77th between bway and amsterdam), where the owner/operatro imberto is a real master mechanic--should be some nice bikes there if you want to drool. for checking stuff out, sid's is a pretty big shop, and r&a in brooklyn has a ton of high end things. god rejse zach.
