I was just a walk in. They're a bit out of the way for me and I only go there infrequently. I ended up buying a used BMC from a former teammate's relative who had too many bikes.

And as mentioned in other posts- saddle and pedals are things you should plan to provide yourself, preferably for the test ride.

Most 6-day riders provide their own bikes. Some top ones probably have their own bike sponsors, but I've also seen road pros riding a mix of track bikes, all with the brand name taped over because they weren't from their road sponsor.
