Bike Shopping

So just a general Q. If you walk into a LBS look at some bikes and get the price, is that a firm fixed price or can you negotiate similar to buying a car??

Normally pretty well fixed though it does not hurt to ask, particularly near the end of the season or if it is a prior year bike. Varies with the bike shop too.
