    Looking for LBS - Loudon County VA

    Good morning,

    I am scouting the area of Loudon county and around in a search for a LBS. I found few good stores - like Performance Bike in Gaithersburg, MD or the one on the main street in Leesburg, forgot the name - but it is all about new bikes and I am looking for up to 5 year old model in decent or semi decent shape.

    Any ideas or recommendations are appreciated.

    Down in Warrenton, I usually deal with the bike stop. It is one of the best shops I've ever dealt with, so I'd recommend giving them a call. They usually deal with new bikes, but call Curtis and see what he can do for you - 540.341.7702

    The best way to find used bikes is via ebay or craigslist. I've found some decent bikes on the DC craigslist in the past, so I would highly recommend considering that route as well.

    What's your price range?

    Don't have one yet, just looking around. My ride is old Raleigh - not sure what year, it is from the Trash to Treasure in Warrenton landfill - of course I replaced tires and tuned it up and changed pedals, but one day I would like to replace it or better - retire it and use it on rainy days only.

    Trails End bike shop at the end of the WO&D in Purceville is a great shop.

    +1 for the Craigslist suggestion. Good bikes come up with a fair bit of regularity. I got my colnago master x-lite through craigslist.
