A few years ago my town of about 35,000 people got a bike shop after being without one for many years. Unfortunately once their lease was up, they had to close. They have a couple of shops an hour or so away from me and I will go there from time to time, but it sure was nice when there was a shop in town. I imagine in the cyber shopping age, a bike shop is a difficult business to sustain in small markets.
