In the blogroll to the right, I have a link entitled My Favorite LBS. LBS stands for Local Bike Shop, the place where I encourage you to buy new stuff. The link goes to Bikefix in London, UK. I've never been to this shop, but they sell Bromptons and Birdys, Pashleys and Surlys, and they're smart, too.
They're so smart, they don't peddle fear to sell bicycles, and they have a copy of John Adam's Risk and Freedom that you can download for free. That's why they're my favorite LBS.
Sure beats a free copy of Bicycling Magazine. But then, most things do.
