How to get the bike to the LBS?

The first two times, I needed to leave a bike at the LBS. I would ride in and walk out and walk in to pick it up and ride out, but the last time I left one of my bikes at the LBS. I rode in on one, left the other and rode out then rode in on the one, put the recently fixed bike on my sholder and rode off. Has anyone else done this? Am I crazy? How do people leave there bike at the LBS?

Sorry about the copy, but I wanted to make a change, but I guess I was too late does anyone know how to delete a personally made thread?

I know that this really isn't the answer to the question that you asked but:

The best LBS in Pittsburgh for parts and repair also allows you to work on bikes in the shop. THe owner explains what you need to do and lets you go at it. That way it is done the same day and no need to bring two bikes. Is there anything like this where you are? There is also a place called "free ride" where you can fix your own bike as well.

If you are ever in Pittsburgh you should pay Jerry a visit.

Also Free Ride (click on the "freeride" button on the left.)
