I think the bike shops are afraid of someone suing them. But it's their loss. Just go in there and talk like you're fixing up a mountain bike to do something heavy duty, and also want a cruiser bike for the road.
Big time, Hardware stores are great! Here in Wethersfield, we have 2 and bring motorized bicycles inside trying stuff.

Years back, we lived in Montville. Great town.
