I get this question all the time, Which bike store do you recommend I go to?. Oddly, my answer always starts with a "depends" and the store I do 90% of my shopping at, Excel Sports, which may not be the best store for those looking to buy a bike for a 10 year old. I've been to a few around town and outside of Boulder with lukewarm reaction. As readers of this website it is very likely that your peers see you as "the bike expert" at the office and your opinion carries a lot of weight so how would you answer this question?
Recently, Redheaded Writing had a very mixed customer service experience with a couple Boulder bike stores and she wrote about it.
