In Doylestown we have 3 bike shops. Cycle Sports, Bike Works, and Bike Line. They all are great shops, but the first two are just single stores and not a chain. Bike Line is a larger regional chain.
I like to shop local and support local shops, but I’ve found that I like the guys at BIke Line too. So I’m torn. I want to patronize the small shops, but I don’t want to stick my nose up to the great guys at the regional store. Especially since they’ve been so good to me.
As of right now, I’m trying to patronize all three. We’ll see if I can settle on my favorite and I’ll report back.
