    Bike shop in Orange County?

    Any shops you'd recommend for demoing a high-end bike while I'm in town? Wife and I will be in the area for a few days in mid to late April and we'd like to get a ride or two in.

    Any thoughts on where we should rent/demo?

    What does Specialized Concept Store mean?
    Does it mean it is owned by Specialized or just controlled by Specialized?

    My sister-in-law that we're visiting lives in Dana Point. I'm clueless of the area, anything good around there?

    Revo Cycles in DanaPoint would be the closest. I am not sure what they have as demos but you can call them at 949-496-1995.

    You can then ride in Aliso Woods Canyon Wilderness Park

    I second The Path. It'll be about a 35 minute trip up there from Dana Point, but it'll be worth your while.

    #1 thing about Spec. concept stores....better Spec. pricing than other dealers.

    Cool. Thanks for the tip. What other brands does the store carry?
