Re: why....dont bicycle shops...
bike shops will not work on your bike because of the libality, just having gas in the tank is an accident waiting to happen is how they think and they are right, they are a bike shop not a motorcycle shop, they do not want to work on a bike that has been changed into sompthing different than a bicycle. sell you parts? no problem, fix your bike? no way. I have run and managed a bike shop in the past and i would never work on a freinkenstein of a bike that has been welded, drilled, modded or anything different than a normal bike, **** we even hated working on cheap bikes cause you fix one thing and sompthing else breaks.
