so florida for test riding

Here in Pembroke Pines, I find it hard to find bike shops that have entry to mid level bikes to test ride. I really want to try the Bianchi Strada. Obviously I'm not limited to Pembroke Pines, but say a 25 mile radius therefrom. Any one know of a place?

None of the LBS that I frequent in the area; Big Wheel, Mega Cycle, Zs etc seem to carry Bianchi, just Trek, Giant and Specialized. If you go to the Bianchi web site and look up dealers in the area it does show 7 dealers in Miami/Ft Lauderdale. Have you tried calling these? If so then you may be out of luck.

Lake worth cycles is probably out of the 25-mile range, but I know for a fact that they have several Bianchi models in stock. They are on Dixie Highway in Lake Worth.

P.S. I do not patron that shop for several reasons, but I wanted to help out.

Good luck.

Stylo328, should those several reasons for not patronizing them be applicable to all? I'm really trying to find a decent bike store in the West Palm Beach area, one that carries parts for and is knowledgeable of singlespeed/fixeds. Haven't had much luck.

Well if you don't mind driving a few minutes Fatcat bicycles in downtown lake worth is a really awesome shop.

Ask for mike the owner, he is totally willing/able to setup SS conversions and the like and they are all really friendly.
