Agree 100%. There seems to be a contingent of posters who are ALWAYS touting "buy product from an LBS" regardless of cycling needs or circumstances. If it is not possible to buy a new mucho $ bike from an LBS, the next recommendations are that all purchasers of used bikes at least throw some business to an LBS with a tune-up, check-up, fitting or an armload of accessories.
