i hear ya man! i get stopped nearly every time i go out for bike parts or to advance.
"nice bike dude! i like so want it!you make them? no @#$% way! your f@#$% me! how much? got a number?" here they pull out their phone, and put my number in, never to be called, ever.....
some lady wanted me to make 6 bikes as a christmas present for her kids,ages 6,8,10,13,16 and herself. i may have warned her off too hard tho.who wants to be known as the guy that sold some poor mama a motor bike whose chain popped off and flipped her baby onto the street?!!
so like bike nut said,:
1. If you charge cheap prices, you attract cheap people as customers.
2. Cheap people make crappy customers lol.
i was setting the price at 325 and they provide a bike i like. like i said no replys on all the china girl inquiries.
