All 3 Sports has several very prominent ecommerce websites that appear to be very successful. They also are exclusive dealers for some very in demand brands. If you want to see their bikes, their store policy is that in order for a customer to fully experience the potential of a bike, they start with a scheduled 1-2 hour bike fit and consultation. Their expert staff determines your riding style and needs, and measures you for fit against the geometry of their bikes. They find the frame size that most closely matches you and further make adjustments to the bike components to fine tune the fit. Then when all the pieces come together you can go for a test ride on the bike with an expert fit so you can fully judge the potential of the bike. If you choose to purchase within 30 days they credit you the $125 fitting fee. If not then they thank you for seeing the value of the time and effort they put into your shopping experience by keeping the fee. Sounds great in theory, and I'm sure people absolutely set on getting a particular bike brand or someone that doesn't want the hassle of shopping around will be very satisfied. I didn't get a chance to try their bike fitting, so I can't review that aspect. I ended up going to other bike shops, test rode bikes without paying for a fitting session, though I found pretty much every other bike shop is very helpful in adjusting or switching the components for a test ride, which is a big reason I support my LBS in the first place.
