How to Support Your Local Charlotte Bike Shop While Respecting Your Budget

Bob asks : I’m struggling between being a good supporter of my LBS and keeping my budget/bike stuff spending in check. I know I need to support my LBS and buy stuff from them. But it’s tough to justify when they sell everything at MSRP and I can find most of the items online for 10-25% less. Is it fair to ask for a discount from the LBS? or does that make me an ass? I don’t expect them to match the prices but maybe we could meet in the middle somewhere. To be clear, I think I’m a pretty decent customer.

Hauling Your Kid by Bike Series: The Basics

My daughter is 4 months old and I’m going stir crazy to get her out on our local bike paths! While I love walking places with her there are a few things that are a bit too far for a daily walk like the library which is a 6 mile round trip with no tree cover to shade us. It is also the heart of the summer here in Denver right now and I need to be back from our walks by 10:30/11am at the latest since walking doesn’t create much of a breeze for my daughter in her stroller!
