Seth Brosnan, manager of Competitive Edge in East Longmeadow, says his shop's success comes down a simple premise: "We're promoting fun." He also points out that commissions don't drive sales and all the staff bike and ski, so Competitive Edge can truly focus on putting you on the right bike or the right skis. It's often thought of as a ski shop, but Brosnan explains that more than half the shop's business is bikes, and they've recently added Cervelo bikes to their offerings. The stores also offer BMX bike gear, skateboards, telemark skis and snowboards. Different locations sometimes have different expertise, as well--in Hadley, you'll find a lot of cross-country ski knowledge, and in East Longmeadow, you'll find plenty of telemark know-how. Competitive Edge also has a ski directed toward directly helping local enthusiasts: they sponsor Springfield's Cyclonauts and the Northampton Cycle Club.
