one is ran by a well known victoria cyclist , that competes and has repesented victoria and australia , a few year ago i went into the shop with a few grand in my pocket to burn on a mountain bike , he wanted nothing to do with me , had the elitist attitude happening -, so i went around the corner to another bike store told them my budget and riding style etc , they actually talked me out of spending a huge chunk of cash on a bike and sold me a cheaper model telling me it would suit me better
it's this shop that i make all my bike purchases from as well as tell everyone i know to shop there , if a store is willing to listen to a customers needs rather then the $$ signs , in my books that makes for a great shop . from word of mouth i have given the guy many sales , in return they look after me quite welll
If your attitude in person is anything like it is on this forum, I wouldn't want anything to do with you. Then again I'm not offering any services you'd be interested in so there's that.
i don't beat around the bush , i say what is on my mind and not afraid to go against the grain , but as a customer my money is just as good as the next blokes , my money will pay the bills , being single with no kids a house paid for i have plenty of surplus cash something that my local has learnt to appreciate
Yes, because I'm so shy and retiring Difference is that it's rare you post unless you're complaining about something. I don't recall you saying much positive about anything, which is sad.
