    Which SLC Bike Shop to build cross bike

    I want to build up a cross bike that I will mainly use to commute but will also be used to do road training, cross riding, and an occasional race. I was thinking of something along the lines of a Soma Double cross (steel, fender eyelets, good enough components to race). What LBS in SLC would likely carry what I need or do a good job building up a bike to fit what I want.

    Thanks for your help

    Sounds like a good project, not sure who to recommend on the frame, but if you are looking for fenders, take a look at some of the ones I make!!
    The wood is being bent! Let me know what you need!

    Wooden fenders might be sweet. When it comes time I may go that route. I'll keep you in mind after I build up the bike.

    Yeah, but what do real human beings think about it? Every time I have gone in their I can't believe the tude some of the employees have. The bike techs are usually rather helpful, but when talking with people working the front counter I want to shoot myself. A year back I was interested in a Trance, I walked in with cash in my pocket to purchase a bike. After standing around for at least 5 minutes and not being asked if I needed help I left. Maybe I just went on an off day.

    I think you did go in on an off day, knowing those guys quite well I can say that providing an excellent customer experience is priority number one and they have a proven record of exactly that. Too bad for them if they lost your business.

    Wild Rose

    Bought my new bike at Wild Rose this Spring. I must have been in there a dozen times talking myself in to spending the $, never any pressure. They were just as quick to help they guy with the beat-looking Frankenbike as the $5K carbon job.

    Talk to Mark at Saturday Cycles in West Bountiful/Centerville. He's a Soma dealer, is a great guy and will build you the perfect commuter.
    I would talk to him before you go anywhere else.
