    New question here. Dallas area LBS

    I need to find a dallas area bike shop that good. I know word of mouth is the best way to find a great shop. I searched the net, but a website tells me nothing about service or quality of people. I live south of dallas in waxahachie, but willing to drive a bit for a great shop.

    Thanks

    There is Richardson Bike Mart. I worked there for 7 years and those guys know there stuff. I would suggest hitting up the one in Frisco by the mall. It is smaller than the one in Richardson which is huge, but that is where all the guys I worked with are and they are very good at what they do. Good luck

    Hit up B&B Bikes in Cedar Hill.
    They are on your side of town and know their stuff.
    It's a family owned/operated shop and they really take care of people.

    I was in Dallas for a few weeks and went out to check out some of the bike shops to kill some time. The guys at richardson bike mart and performance bikes were really helpful and seemed to be very knowledgeable

    I have had a great experience dealing with Richardson Bike Mart (the Richardson and White Rock Lake locations). Dallas Bike Works also has an excellent reputation.

    When in doubt, lean more. 95% of the time it will solve the problem; the other 5% of the time it'll end the suspense.

    Mad Duck in Grapevine are also great guys. I was on their team for a couple of years and they really support mountainbiking more than a lot of the other shops.

    Make sure to ask for the Dorba 10% discount on I think everything except bikes. They sell specialized and trek.

    I have had better luck at Richardson Bike Mart then I have at Plano Cycling. The techs at RBM were pretty knowledgable.

    Bonzai Cycle Werx in Keller is great because it's small and the mechanics know what they are doing. They greet you and ask you what you need as soon as you walk in the door. Their mechanics area is in the center of the shop and they never act like they are beat down because they have to stop what they are doing to deal with a customer. They also have a really fast turn around on repairs.

    +1 Brian Buell, the owner is friendly and helpful. He also charges a very reasonable price for work done.

    +1 on the Mad Duck suggestion. Yeti, Moots, Santa Cruz, and Orbea.
