Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Shop for Bike Parts?
@Shinkers: I think there is a vast scale of shops and some aren't with the program. I would have no issue with supplying your headset spacers or competitive pricing or service. I am with the program. Some people just aren't. The pay is down to the lack of business. You could blame the consumer but that's small minded and arrogant. The issue is with the industry. You are right about the support thing. No insult taken! I realise there's a vast world out there with varying degrees of consumer support.

Maybe if you bought from there they'd keep it in stock but as everyone buys online shops don't bother stocking it. The shop is vastly responsible for a lot of its issues but at the end of the day if people don't buy a certain product from the shop then they won't stock it. It's business to a degree.

I'm purely curious here, do you order everything online out of "self sufficiency" if you can call it that. Or because of price. If you're not "supporting" your local shop so they can stay there for emergency visits then they may go under? I don't necessarily think support is the right word Its just the one used. I work in an area where many shops have closed and the comments are always I can't get my emergency bits or I can't get that advice. I get it's easy and sometimes cheaper to order online and I don't necessarily think you should pay more at a shop but just intrigued on your comments on this. There must be a balance that can be struck and it's down to the shops to find that and "advertise" that. Obviously it depends on your area and the shop employees as to your opinion/situation on this. As with everything people make shops bad to deal with or work with.

First Ride: Transition's New Scout Carbon
@GlassGuy: the geometry is far from sitting in trend, not sure you'll find much with a sub 400 seat tube and 460 reach
