What a Brilliant LBS (ESSEX)

Looking to buy a new bike and fancied myself a Bianchi.
I know there are better bikes for the money but I’ve owned Ducati motorcyles for a good while and love all things Italian so was 70% there on the choice to start with.
Now I’m 97% sure after going to an LBS that stocks them.
Went to 53-12 in Colchester and was very impressed to say the least.
Change the handlebars? “of course”, change the rear cassette? “no problem”, change the stem? “yep”
All this just to make sure they sell me the best fit and at no extra charge!
How can I now buy elsewhere?

    I'd rather have a ginger guy than a narrow minded twat!

    53-12 are superb you'd be mad to go elsewhere if you're after a Bianchi. They will make sure you get the bike and most importantly size that's right for you not what they want to sell you. True professionals great service. I speak from personal experience.
