    North jersey lbs's

    Can someone suggest to me some lbs's that have a good/large inventory in the north jersey/ Nepa area. I'm shopping for a fatty and willing to travel if it's worth it. My shop only has a couple.

    i've been to Halter's Cycles in the past and they had a pretty decent inventory and knowledgeable staff, but I haven't been they moved. Halters Cycles |

    My best friend uses the Montclair Bikery and swears by them. I've never been inside, but I walked past it the other day while on a date and they had a lot of fatties inside: Montclair Bikery New Jersey's home for Trek Specialized Felt and Pinarello

    Sussex Bike and Sport Shop has some Farleys on the floor, maybe a demo too. They have stores in Andover NJ and Sussex NJ which is close by riding at High Point State Park and Kitattiny Valley State Park. One mechanic there has had a Stache plus, and Farley original. Now he has a Farley 9.6, I got my Farley's from the Sussex Bike Shop. Ask for Cycleboy Pete, at the Andover Shop (closed on Sunday for the Winter and Tuesday all year).... Andover shop has the Farley on the floor, and a great trail near that is an easy one to navigate. Yesterday I rode some snow covered snowshoe tracks at Kittatiny and at Highpoint there is a snowmobile loop about 8 miles long that I rode on Sunday.

    Thx for the reminder! I forgot about that shop in Andover. I think that one is only open on the weekends. Where is Sussex bike and sport?

    There is another bike shop near KVSP that is kind of small. The Sussex Bike shop location there is where another bike shop used to be. Sussex Bike & Sport Shop

    Well I've been doing the lbs circuit in my area (north jersey) and most of them seem to have one common denominator. And that's is Trek. Trek is one of my top picks but I was really hoping to ride some other brands. Most stores just don't have inventory. The search continues......

    I was just on their website and it doesn't list what they sell. Do you know what fat bike brands they sell? Do they have a good inventory or is it just a couple bikes? Thx

    I'd give Cycle Fitters in Easton, PA a call. They usually have some combo of salsa/surly in stock. They're heavy on adventure bikes, worth a drive if all you have around are road oriented shops.

    I spent some time in Marty's in Morristown over the holidays talking fat bikes. They had a pretty good selection and the mechanic (can't remember his name) was pretty knowledgeable. He was actually working on a couple fat bikes for an upcoming fat bike race while we talked. Cool shop.

    I can vouch for Marty's, Hilltop Summit, and Halters...great shops with good stock and lots of choices. Halters has Salsa and Cannondale. Ask for Jason (the owner). Also try CycleCraft in Parsippany...ask for Brendan. I was there a few weeks ago and they had a decent stock of Salsa's, including a Bucksaw or two.
