Re: What My Local Bike Shop Thinks....
Bike shops in the Phoenix area were beginning to sell gas and electric assisted bikes last year. (Electric was more common). Many shops just want to sell what we are willing to buy. Other shops will remain dedicated to the fitness oriented customer. Shimano will soon offer e-bike components, including a front hub motor. Things are changing.
