    I went by there today. The place is cleared out. Now the closest locations are in Orlando, Sanford, and Daytona.

    The economy aint turning around in Brevard just yet.

    Thanks for the tip. You probably saved me a wasted trip.

    I don't see Cycle Gear being around as a company, long term, because
    they are competing with internet-based businesses which can sell stuff
    which is better quality with significantly lower operating costs.

    I went to the one here in jax a couple of weeks ago.looking for a new pair of boots.None of the staff offered any help and the boot section was a disorganized pile.I went to power sports by Regency square and picked up a pair of Tourmaster WP 2.0 boots .

    The T.M boots are very comfortable to wear and I am going to go get a second pair in the near future.:deal

    Cycle gear is an online store, with their brick and mortar stores a complement to their online business. Cyclegear.com has much more than what they sell in the stores.

    Yup, they're prices are competitive, and it's nice to be able to try something on. They're return policy is good as well. The only thing is that their in-store selection may be limited, but they have no problem with getting something in for you, even if you don't keep it.
