[*BCM*] new bike

My favorite LBSs (local bike shops), in no particular order:

Harris Cyclery, W. Newton
Broadway Bicycle School, Cambridge
Ace Wheelworks, Belmont/ Somerville

Broadway doesn't carry many bikes, but those they do are very nice,  
and reasonably priced. Ace is good, tho the Belmont store has a much  
wider selection than Somerville. Harris is excellent, especially for  
lesser known bike and frame makers like Rivendell, IRO, ANT, Surly,  
etc. They do a brisk mail-order business for hard-to-find parts and  
accessories (especially for fixed gear and 3-speed parts), and many  
non-local people I have corresponded with have expressed mild  
jealousy that I live close enough to them to visit in person.

You can't go wrong with any of these shops, but I would recommend  
checking out one or more before you buy, to get a sense of what is  
out there.

Hope this helps
