first observation: NJ is not Kansas. that said, this is pretty unusual for a sub $2,000 bike. my LBSs don't stock $9,000 bikes, but I've taken out the most expensive they had and I've even ridden employee bikes when they were the right size and same model (or at least frame) I was interested in.

second- will they let you put down a refundable deposit, leave your DL, something?

third idea- can you go for a test ride with a store employee? I can't see you getting in 10+ miles or anything, but even 4 or 5 could help you get an idea about the bike.
