Thanks for the advice. I do have a two local shops I have visited that the bikers in my workplace like and recommend. The one in my local town I don't have confidence in the guys who work the maintenance side. Couldn't solve a simple tire valve problem on the Specialized I used last year. Both shops have the bikes I have been interested in so unless I get a super deal on a used one, I will most likely get one from one of them. One even offers free basic tune-ups for as long as you own the bike if you get it from them and they have a good rep as well but are a Trek dealer. The other has a great rep (no maintenance deals) as well and does Cannondale and Specialized as well as Felt. Since I am new I figured I would stick with brands I know have been around awhile.
