I work at one of those 2 in Florida. PM me! I'm in Sarasota and it's only about 1 hour South of Tampa Airport! We have two shops, one in Sarasota and one in Bradenton. Both called Village Bike Shop (however the Bradenton store just changed names and is a.k.a. 59th Street Bicycles)
Anyways, they are very nice bikes and very affordable, plus they look great! There paint is very clean and is a very sharp looking bike! We've got two models one is under $600 and the other is under $800.
Granted, they don't compare to the $3000+ Kestrel we have, but for the money they're a great deal!
We carry Cannondale, LeMond, Kestrel & only recently FELT! The problem was that C'Dale & others didn't have a decent "entry-level" bike and we were losing customers that didn't want to spend $1,000 to "just get started". We picked up the Felt brand and we were very impressed with it!
We also utilize a "fit-kit" to properly size you to the bike! A nice feature many shops don't have!
Also, while you're down here, you could check out our competition! Other shops in town carry Trek, Specialized, & Giant to name a few, so it may make it worth you while to spend a whole day taking test rides!
Like I said, PM me and I'll give you some prices & sizes we have in stock!
