Agreed, they were very helpful when I was looking for trail advice and spent a lot of time helping me get my map synched up with the race course I wanted to pre ride.brandonj1979 said:Racers Edge has been gone for a few years. Avalanche Sports in Breckenridge.
More like only in the Dilverthorne side of the county. The only knock I can think of against Avalanche or Breck Velo is their limited inventory. They keep most things you'd need in stock but it's not financially feasible for most shops to keep "one of everything" around. BTi orders only take a day or two so they can get you what you need faster than online retailers.bipolarbear said:I just moved back to Summit after a four year stint in Denver and I'm really surprised by the lack of good bike shops, especially on the Dilverthorne side of the county.
Don't be. The same mechanics can be found operating Breck Velo. I'm headed there in a minute to get spokes.bipolarbear said:Really bummed about the demise of Racers Edge.
I think this is a trend you'll be seeing more and more as internet retail takes over. LBS's just can't compete.bipolarbear said:I just moved back to Summit after a four year stint in Denver and I'm really surprised by the lack of good bike shops. Especially on the Dilverthorne side of the county. Frisco has a few but even Wilderness sports, who was voted best shop in the county, carries very little in the way of bike gear and it's mostly specialized.

Yeah, I went into Podium twice the other day. Does anyone work there? Didn't see any employees either time. Wasn't trying to get anyones attention either though. Just browsing, but I could have easily ridden out with a $4k Rock Mountain FS 29er! Not that I would, but it would have been really easy.SicBith said:I agree with the MSO comments. They used to be good, but things have changed. If you don't want to drive to Breck you should really check out Podium Sports in Frisco. They are new, but have their **** together.
