    I often mail order stuff from LBSs that are less than 5 miles from my house. Internet prices are often lower than in-store prices and with occasional free shipping, why would I waste my time going to...

    Unless you are getting some sort of bro deal, buying one bike worth of parts at retail prices (which is what most shops will charge you) is going to cost you way more than a stock bike.

    Small businesses and the internet are not mutually exclusive. Good small businesses adapt. I shop at good LBSs all over the country in person and via the internet.

    NO...why would you think your car speedometer is calibrated?

    You need a real cyclocomputer that is calibrated to your wheel circumference to get an accurate measure of your speed.
