Props to Travis Cycle in Taunton. I had heard good things about this LBS and highly recommend them. The owner is a rider and we had an hour long conversation about biking.
He biks from Taunton to Fairhaven every week. He says the ride is around 1 1/2 hours. Tomorrow I will confirm/deny his timing.
A broken spoke cost me a buck, plus $20 labor. I really need to learn to do that for myself. I did find a new pair of gloves also. For another $20 bucks. With tax it came to $43 for a broken spoke. I really need to learn to do that myself.
