That depends a lot on what you're looking for and value in an LBS (and how far you're willing to travel). Whats important to you? Price, selection, exotic inventory, quality/availability of the mechanics, accessories, friendly advice ???
I couldn't find all of the above in a single LBS when I was looking for a new road bike a while ago.
Anyway, if you're new to the area (or new to biking) you probably won't go wrong starting in some of the bigger places like Wheelworks, or Landrys. Or even Harris Cyclery. Very different vibes in all these shops.
