THe one thing I hate about living in Syracuse NY is the lack of variety that bigger cities have. I am looking for a new bike and find selections here poor. I went into a Raleigh dealer the other day and not a single tourting bike but yet they had 90% mountain.
I sold my raleigh Alyeska at a steal of a price ARG!! And now I am looking to get back into cycling. Mainly what I need is a hybrid (being a newer dad and all) but I also like the idea of getting a tourer again.
I'm looking at Cannondale , Raleigh & Trek plus maybe Specialized (however I have recetly spoke with a owner who claims it's a good ride but the components rust like hell).
What are someof the good bike shops around? I'm willing to go to Binghamton, Alabnay (in laws there) Rochester, Ithaca, ROme/Utica or what there is around here.
Any suggestions would be great!
