Re: Shopping for bike stuff in Europe
I get into the Louis store every once in a while in Mainz, Germany. They certainly have a huge selection of clothing, helmets, and other accessories. Any of the items that can be found in US stores would undoubtedly be cheaper, but if you need something not available here the sales staff is very helpful. Some, if not all of the staff seem to be able to help in english - so communicating is generally not an issue. They publish their own catalogue that is close to an inch and a half thick for good "window shopping", but overall I'd say things are expensive.
Added to the thread for what it's worth - certainly not a complaint on the store, or its' services.
