Re: Snobs in Bicycle Stores
I live in a very small town in the middle of nowhere. We don't have a bike shop for about 40 miles in any given direction. I have gone to get parts for my bike from one of the stores here and have had the attitude change by the mere mention of my MB. The funny part is that I did have about $3500.00 worth of merchandise at the counter. When the salesman heard I was going to motorize the bikes he suddenly needed to speak to his manager. I waited about 15 min. with no one returning to help me so I left everything there and walked out. I called the store later and asked for the manager, Then I explained what happened and was shocked to find out the sales person was going to be given a rather lengthy pay free vacation. I was then invited to shop there anytime I wanted as long as he got a photo of the finished product. He also wanted first dibs on any future sales.
Hope it Helps. I am also a proud member of the 20 MPH. club
