Bike Shops in L.A. that offer Saddle Demo Programs
 
I apologize if this a repeat thread, I tried searching before I decided to post.

Are there any bike shops in the Burbank, Pasadena, Glendale, Santa Monica areas with a program that allows you to try out a saddle prior to purchasing it?

I called many of the bike shops that google search brought up, and had no luck.

I know competitive cyclist offers a similar program through the mail/web:

But I would like to go into a physical store location.

Thanks in advance!

Try Veloworx in Santa Monica. Last I checked they have a selection of demo seats. You have to leave a deposit for the entire purchase price, which they will either return when you bring the seat back or credit towards another purchase.

Thank you! Any other shop recommendations? I currently have a Specialized Alias 143, and would like to try other makes, and models.

I will definitely check out the shop on Ventura, and will try to venture out to Santa Monica.
