comment What are some good films about cycling?
I agree that it is likely to be closed, though a great topic. Perhaps viable as a big-list type community wiki with one movie per answer.

comment How do you know if you can trust your LBS?
I don't understand why you say "do expect ... Your bike to be scratched..." It seems inconsisten with the rest of the section, and not a typical expectation. Is that a typo?

comment How to choose a Local Bike Shop
a good answer ... except you set the bar way too high. Open at 7 AM? Good luck! Also, understand that the absence of loaner bikes may be a practical deference to insurance fees and the hassle of keeping track of the bike. Also, what do you mean by a standard service price? What is wrong with charging a flat fee for a specific service?

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@danethesane also try riding with no hands, at a high cadence, at a low cadence (20 rpm with high resistance)then take a jacket on and off, then juggle. Ride with your eyes closed. Bike handling will improve.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@Tyler thanks for pointing out that explanation of Souplesse in a cycling context. But given the definition, and extensive experience training on rollers, I would argue that the OP incorrectly understates the benefits of riding rollers, or the fact that it takes specific focus to know that rollers promote good, smooth form, and the ability to hold a straight line under various riding situations.
