A few Spokane LBS suggestions
Welcome to Spokane!
When it comes to our LBS's I have two favs: Wheelsport (there's three of them in greater Spokane). The people are always friendly and helpful. No Bike Snobs. A mix of mountian, comfort, hybrid and road bikes. I always walk out happy I visited.
The other one I frequent more and more is Fitness Fanatics. They are in the valley, literally a stones throw away from the Centennial Trail, which is where I usually ride. They are much more oriented toward triathlons, ironmen, cross-country skiing and all around hardcore stuff.
Being just a carbon-fiber man (barely), I patronize the establishment because they always know what they're talking about, have great quality and selection, and they are so conveniently located (for me anyway).
If you know about this forum, you proably also know about the upcoming ride (Sept. 15 & 16). If not go to roundandround.com (immediately!!!) to find out more about the Tour de Lacs. It's a great event, and a great way to meet some of Spokane's best people. Registration costs more after September 7.
Best wishes with your studies this fall. I miss my college days, but I have no desire to go back to life without a salary! I guess that sentiment is a hazard of middle age, but cycling's a lot more fun when you don't have to just wish for the right equipment.
Anyway, thanks for your post. Hope I answered any questions.
