Sigh... what amb rule did i break this time?



Ya want the full list, or the summary? ;-)

I can guess a few...
1. Didn't snip (I always forget)
2. Asked instead of looking up (get over it, I'm looking for opinions)
3. Not enought info in request?
4. Las Vegas is someone elses turf?

Actually, you did just fine. I have to change your #1 though, and
unfortunatley have to ask you to remember that this newsgroup is over 90% full
of the most arrogant and rude people I've never personally met.

You've actually personally met 90% of us? Well, I guess I must be in the 10%
because I don't remember you seeing my smiling face ever.....

YEP, last shop on left side of the road that leads west to the Red Rocks
area. Can't be more specific, but you can sure find it from there.

They're good folks, but iirc, you'll get a Fisher.

Thanks, amazing how many replies it takes to get something useful. Any
hints on the name so I can hit them up for more info?

You expected a straight answer. LOL. In any case, good luck finding a good
place. Paladin's suggestions sounds like your best bet at this point. Post
a RR, I'm curious as to what the Vegas riding is like.

your not from around here are you?

It's not an a.m-b rule, but a rule of polite people anywhere. First,
you go seek info on your own. Google is good. Then you post a list
of what you found, and ask questions based on that. That way, it
looks like you actually did a little work, and didn't expect to be
spoon-fed data without one ounce of effort on your part.

"I looked in Google for LV bike rental places. I found Shops X, Y, Z
and Q, But don't know anything about any of them. Does anyone have
any experience with any of these? Could you make a recommendation? I
searched in a.m-b for some references, but didn't find anything
useful."

Now, you could take the spanking nitwit Scotty-dog at his word, but
really, folks would like to see SOME effort on your part to answer
your own question. Maybe *you* knew already that the websites would
be mostly hype, with no real differentiation. But at least you could
have shown that you put even the smallest effort into it.

It's just like asking in a.m-b the age-old question "what bike should
I get?"

The red one.

West Charleston, west edge of town, adjacent to a good rock climbing
shop, I think it might be called, Pro Cyclery.
