Re: Helpful place...
That's great Jbones. Many bike shops don't want to hear about putting motors on these bikes. I went into a Trek store once and had the audacity burden the guy behind the counter to purchase two Bonstrager tires for my bike. The lady that came out later seemed more personable though. Another bike shop (run by a cool enough individual) was more of the hands-on type of shop. There's also a Schwinn store here in town that I go to. They've been real helpful and answered any questions that I've had. I bought some chain lube today, just so I could buy something from them for their help. I'll be going back there to buy more, I'm sure.
I'm just finishing my first build and that's a Cranbrook. I like it a lot!
If you've got a shop that welcomes MB's, you're truly blessed.
