I thought you was supposed to bring your own pedals and shoes. The fuck I know about this shit. I didn't even know bikes didn't come with pedals until last year muffucka.

you don't have to, they usually just stick shitty platforms on for the test rides.

yep. what jim said.

if you already have shoes, (even mtb) they can sometimes put matching pedals on since you can get a better feel for the bike when you're attached to it.

when you buy the bike, you can buy shoes and pedals at the same time, and that will help when you do the final fitting.

He also sells Look, Guru, Seven, ect

Guru is uber pimp but that may not be for you, Bob on the other hand doesn't just sell you a bike because its in stock and is a breath of fresh air compared to most of shops out there just trying to make numbers.

I used to not even consider a shop if they didn't have a bike I could test ride, bro you aren't spending chump change so the bike is going to be pump. Read the reviews on http://www.bicycling.com/ and I'm sure you will be happy with your choice... Now I feel fine with buying a bike I have never ridden before.

Scott Foil and the Blue AC1 sl are both worth a look, both aero road bikes.

Or get the Cervelo S5 with sram rival, that is hands down what I would get.

If you get a Cervelo S5 I will beat you down and take it. That shit is fast! If I ever get a new road bike that will be it.

Not sure where but the local ones by me are Village cycle, Kozys, Turin, Cycle Smithy. Most of the shops in the city offer no test ride for good reason I suppose. Instead they'll do a fitting and then you have 30 days to return the bike if it's not right for you.

I don't like the styling. It looks like a fucking TT bike frame but it's not. That frame reminds of this dude I know who sucks dick but says he's not gay.

Yeah I'm not in love with the styling either, but the thing hauls ass. Look up where the next test ride is for Cervelo just so you can ride a few of them. I went to one and they just let me take out whatever bike they had. Much like a TT bike, the aero road bikes are the future of speeds past 20mph.

you don't need to stinking aero bike for speeds past 20. I know a dude who can do like 48mph with a steel framed bike.

He was working pretty hard though. If he had the S5 it would be easy.

Yep, love them. Larger platform versus other pedals which I like when standing/hammering out of the seat or putting down a lot of power.

Wow, good thing you said something about styling, I'd hate to have a bike that looks fast sitting still. What was I thinking, also Thor looks like a fag riding it- especially when wearing those rainbow colors.
