I was just wondering if people on here would ever want to do a "Rate your local bike shop" feature or section on the website?? Just another way for consumers to get access to first hand consumer reviews on the bike shops in their town(s). I know I would love to give some reviews on the bike shops in my town if only to tell others about the experience I've had. What do you guys think?

On the whole a good useful idea. But I could see it easily getting out of had with people bad mouthing rival shops and such. To avoid that and to help people get the right shop, maybe shops could post descriptions of themselves and the kinds of bikes that they carry, with a simple thumbs up or down vote from users. For instance, in Santa Cruz, every bike shop has mountain bikes, but only Another Bike Shop is all mountain all the time (With a couple of cruisers thrown in for good measure.).
