Going to a shop actually supports riders and the very basis for the progression of the sport.

Also I like to break things and then take them back to the store with a great attitude, fingers crossed, but ready to spend more money(recipe for success, sympathy, stickers, swag, hidden discounts, etc). Returning shit on the internet is a pain in the dick.
Totally agree with you on returning items online, what a hassle. Only thing is traffic sucks in L.A. so I can't always drive to a good place

I meant more Amazon.com. You can sometimes get a good deal since they reduce the prices a bit.
