There are a lot of bicycle shops in the Orlando area. I'd like to walk into a 6 or 7 near to school and where I live, ask if they have any used bikes that can take racks, and see how the staff treat me. Do they act like they are to busy to deal with someone who wants a used bike? Are they too busy to even talk with you? Do things just not feel right? Does a local group of bike activists favor one or two shops that support commuting? Pick a shop you like with a good used or new bike and deal there. When I was in college I went to a shop within easy walking distance of campus.
