I know the guys at my Local Bike Shop (Cheeky Transport in Sydney, they are awesome!), are very helpful with answering questions.
However, I also know that they need to get back to work fixing bikes, and can't answer questions all day.
Considering that, they would probably be interested in promoting a quality bicycle question and answer site, in that it may help reduce their question and answer workload.
So questions are,
Should we be recommending Bicycle.SE to our LBS?
Is there a standard "invitation" if you like, that could be sent to your LBS?
Is there a set of rules or recommendations for LBS entering Bicycles.SE (could apply to manufacturers as well)?
An example would be recommendations on full disclosure of interests. Eg You are a bike shop that sells certain brands but in your answers you manage to slip in recommendations on your brands.
If bike shops recommended Bicycles.SE to their customers then it would probably get a wider demographic, which relates to my other question What is the proportion of users on Bicycles.StackExchange who are not on StackOverflow?
