Hidden Switzerland: Ticino
palm trees are typical in Ticino (even if it sounds bizarre)! it's part of the ticinese aesthetics. even if it's geographically italian Alps, in fact Ticino is tropical Switzerland;-)

Pinkbike's Burning Question - Should You Support Your Local Bike Shop or Buy Online?
I buy online and in my LBS (basebike in Lamone, if you live in Ticino it's the best). My bike is serviced by basebike. they are my friends, they are competent and up to date, and when it happens you know something better than them, they are happy to learn. but, they can't have the stock of chainreaction and, most importantly, they have a lot of problems with swiss distributors and their price policies. in fact, recently they ended up collaboration with specialized because of their prices and policies (they had to pay the bikes completely one year in advance and were never sure about exact delivery etc.). another good exemple is hope products. my LBS is the first one that said to me: buy it online, swiss prices of those products are a robbery! and in fact that's why I decided to buy more often in my LBS. but only when the difference is ok. this year I bought a crossmax sx wheelset and my LBS price was 40 CHF higher than chainreaction price... that's ok, when the difference is more, sometimes I buy elsewhere, and my LBS understand...
