Seriously. Like cars, let someone else take the price hit that comes with having to have new gear. That way, you can get, if you're a careful shopper, twice or three times the quality...

Do you know the owner and staff of your LBS? If so, then it makes a difference. Spending is not just economic, it's a political act. You're telling someone you want them around.

They're not necessarily comfortable, they're built for efficiency. And their bodies are tuned, as best as they can be, for riding 130-160+ miles per day for days on end. Their frames are stiff,...
