I don’t really have a LBS in Victoria where I feel as at home as Bow Cycle in Calgary. Maybe that’s going to take a lot longer. Maybe that won’t ever happen. However, I have to give the Fairfield Bicycle Shop some credit. I’ve been looking for some odd parts this year that I fully expected I would have to order online. In each case I figured I might as well try and buy local if I could, but really didn’t expect to be successful. And in each case Fairfield had exactly what I was looking for.
For example they had a Rohloff dual wheel chain tensioner. Exactly what I needed. $50 less than the best online price I had found and available right away so I could finish my bike build. You can’t really ask for more than that.
Merry Christmas Fairfield Bicycle Shop!
