I have no idea what the bike shop was going to recommend because at the time I thought he was crazy and I was not interested.
Excellent bike, I bought my SL1 used as well. First thing my shop did when I asked their opinion was suggest re-tension and true both wheels. They found things a little "loose" for their tastes, and these were supposedly 200 mile wheels. I'm not a Clyde, but you might want to consider having a good wheel man take a look at them for peace of mind.
