    my LBS is amazing the first time I walked in they were really nice and didn't try to sell me anything till I asked and now they're still always giving me advice never trying to sell me anything in fact they once told me I would be better buying my tri clip on bars used cuz it would be cheaper . but that also might be cuz my family has bought 5bikes from them and a crap load of gear

    When I go to my LBS to ask about sourcing a VINTAGE part like a brake bridge drop bolt or a leather saddle tension bolt nut, or a quill pedal dust cap, or a matching Avocet crank dust cap, or YOU NAME IT, they look at me as if I had four heads and am speaking Lithuanian. Seriously, how about maintaining a take off parts bin instead of throwing things out. Wouldn't require too much labor or space...

    Good luck finding a decent LBS. We don't have much to choose from locally but everytime I need assistance wrenching or a question about my own DYI wrenching they are more than helpful. Odds' n ends' such as nuts, washers, spacers... they got my back always. I can't always pay their prices, but I do purchase some supplements, lubes, and tubes often.

    Rules violation, specifically: Rule #8: Saddles, bars, and tires shall be carefully matched.

    Valid options are:
    • Match the saddle to the bars and the tires to black; or
    • Match the bars to the color of the frame at the top of the head tube and the
      saddle to the color of the frame at the top of the seat tube and the tires to
      the color where they come closest to the frame; or
    • Match the saddle and the bars to the frame decals; or
    • Black, black, black
      Suggest you go with the lime green bar tape and lime green Fizik saddle to complete the look.

    Does this come in carbon? - Anon.
