Thinking of buying a new bicycle? One of your first choices, and not necessarily an easy one, will be where to shop. It can be a challenge because there are a myriad of stores that carry two-wheelers, from specialty retailers, to giant department stores, to backyard garage operations.

Where you buy, however, has everything to do with what you get. You see, bicycles aren''t like toasters or suitcases. Bikes are shipped in boxes and they must be assembled and tuned. There are many types, too, and you should never buy until you''ve figured out which is right for you. Measurements and adjustments are required to ensure the frame is the correct size and that the seat and handlebars are properly positioned. And, every new bicycle will need a minor tune-up after several weeks of use.

What''s more, modern road and mountain bikes can travel at high speeds and carry you over demanding terrain where the machine''s materials and construction get tested. A quality two-wheeler, carefully assembled and fit to you, will be the safest, most durable and fun bicycle to ride.

For these reasons, we strongly recommend shopping at a good specialty bicycle store in our area. For instance, we hire competent salespeople and expert mechanics who''ll ensure that you get the right bike and a quality machine. Look for a store that is clean, has helpful personnel, offers a good selection, and an on-site repair department.

Shop Summary:
Guess I'll be the first one to write about his shop since I've had a few good experiences here. I've not bought I bike here, but have had mine serviced. Shop carries, Yeti, Specialized and Giant I think. This shop is a regional chain I believe. Good selection of biking apparel.

Customer Service:
This is my favorite shop in the Charlotte area. The guys are friendly and helpful. They buck the trend by welcoming you into their shop with "hello(s)" and "let me know if you need any help." They took the time to look up a $11 part in their computer system that I needed to salvage a rear derailleur. Two other shops were like, "you have to buy a whole new one buddy - sorry." Also, when I walked in one day needing something they took parts (chainring bolts) off of their personal bikes to put on mine when they were out of stock. Not sure why they were out of stock though? When I rarely need service that I can't do myself - this is where I go.
