buying a Litespeed online

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

buying a Litespeed online

If one were considering the purchase of a Litespeed online, which websites might one consider? I will do as much test riding as possible in my area and then might look for a deal online in the Fall.

The only problem I see with buying a quality bike like a Litespeed on-line is adjustments after the sale and tune-ups.

I bought my Litespeed last year ( ) from a bike shop near my work and have free lifetime tune-ups.
I had to take the bike back after about a week for some "tweeking" of the FIT. The shop replaced the stem and did some minor adjustments.

If you buy on-line you'll have to pay for adjustments and tune-ups.
Just something to think about.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
