Do We Need Local Bike Shops Anymore? | Dirt Shed Show 361

View Original Post for complete content...

On this week's Dirt Shed Show, with the news that one of the biggest bicycle retailers in the world has added the option to purchase their bikes directly from the internet, we're asking if local bike shops even need to sell bikes anymore? Since you can purchase high-quality mountain bikes from the internet and get them delivered directly to your door, why should you head over to the LBS and hope they have stock of the specific bike you want? Well, we're playing devils advocate a bit here, because we're big LBS supporters and offer significantly more services than just the initial purchase of the bike! Martyn, Rich and Doddy dig into this tricky subject. ____________________ Subscribe to Global Mountain Bike Network: Join us from 16-19 June 2022 in the stunning resort of Saalbach in the heart of the Austrian Alps for Global Bike Festival - the ultimate weekend of bikes, riding, music, entertainment and much, much more brought to you by GMBN, EMBN and GCN: 👉 🔊 Camo is Back!
