I read here a few times that one can ask LBS to order a bike
if they do not have certain model (say, Trek 520) or specific size in stock.
I have not had occassion to do that and since I have a road bike and
a MTB that I like, do not intend to buy another for a long time.
But I am just curious to know, if one does get the LBS to order
one, are you in fact obligated to purchase that bike (before you actually
get to test it) or if you do not like it after test ride, are the LBS
taking a loss on that bike by ordering it but no buyer and the bike now
sits on their floor for nothing?
Just curous how that works..thanks.
