    Visiting East Iowa this weekend, bikeshops?

    Hey guys & Gals, I will be in Mt Pleasant this weekend, unfortunately working.
    I hope to have time free on Monday, and am basically looking for advice on a damn good bike shop, lets say within 2hrs drive

    Im chasing;
    Helmet
    Gloves
    Shoes
    Tyres
    and whatever else takes my fancy when I see it.

    Can anyone recommend an awesome bike shop to me?

    From my searches, it appears World of Bikes in Iowa City is the go, but local knowledge from someone in the area is always better



    WooHoo!!!!!!!!, just noticed Mount Pleasant has a Walmart , Ive heard so much about these (good & bad), cant wait to go and have a look.

    You'll be good to go at World of bikes.
    There is also:
    Sugarbottom bikes
    Geoffs bike and ski

    These are in the Iowa City and North Liberty area about 45 minutes north of mount Pleasant. There is also a decent mall near Iowa City in Coralville called Coral Ridge Mall.

    Further north in Cedar Rapids is Halls Bicycle or Northtowne Fitness.

    Well I was able to get from Scheels at Coral Ridge Mall:
    Shimano M088 shoes
    2x Fox riding shorts
    Socks
    Helmet
    3x T-Shirts

    All for great prices, plus they had 20% off riding stuff


    I realise it not the most popular place, but from Walmart:
    12x Giant Herscheys Cookies & Cream (kids love em)
    2x Lego Star Wars sets
    2x Bell Kingpin tyres 29" (I know I know, but a $19.95 each I couldn't say no)


    All up I spent a bit of cash, but saved a lot if I compare it to the prices I pay here, and I needed it all anyway (well the chocolate and Lego I didn't, but they were gifts)

    Missus is making a list for the next work trip to the States.

    Thanks noyzsource for the advice
