    Hey Tom,

    Did anybody ever find out where SPD gets their bikes serviced? There are plenty of good bike shops and companies out there. Would rather avoid the ones that contract with SPD.

    Cheers!

    Given the consistent multi-week lead time to get a service appointment, I would NOT agree with the characterization that there are “plenty” of shops. Unless people have multiple bikes at their disposal, that’s insufficient to support the use of bikes as a primary means of transportation for those without bike mechanic skills & resources.
    In “normal” years this would be the case leading up to STP, but in 2020 that seems to be the status quo
