You can definitely ask the LBS if they are willing to price match from a shop thats an hour away. Just be nice about it. Say that you like their shop better and would rather purchase from them. And considering that its only an 80 dollar difference, I don't see why they'd refuse. Asking to pricematch from an online store might be pushing it though, just to warn you. Just be careful to strike a good balance of not trying to sound too demanding vs being a complete pushover.
