    Trade in program?

    Is it best to go directly through Ventana or a LBS? I don't have a shop local to me, but I have dealt with Redbarn in the past.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    it's best for Ventana since the LBS doesn't get their share, you don't save any more, or less

    Thanks, had not thought about the shop not getting their share.

    Generally what's in it for the shop is the labor to build up the bike and sell a few parts as not everything fits from old to new frame.


    If you're sourcing all your own parts off the net and are going to do the build yourself, then yeah, no need to involve the shop.

    I did mine direct with Ventana. Easy process, no need to involve a shop.
    If it's not powered solely by you, it's motorized.
