Traveler Friendly Bike Shops
I hate to ask for another forum to the already large HUBB, but I think that it may be helpful to set up a "Traveler Friendly Bike Shops" forum like "Bike Friendly Hotels, Motels, and Campgrounds" sections.
Travelers could recommend and give contact information for bike shops where they have had good service. I think there is something similar in the links section. But of course, many (most?) of the bike shops in out-of-the-way places don't have home pages.
Just a suggestion...
