Is that true?! Or was that isolated to a particular store?
No Parawolf, it's not true. Would you buy a bike without trying it out?
It's amazing how the truth becomes old hear-say and gets totally bent out of shape by those who want to believe it.
It is true, at Camberwell at least. As of last July, I was allowed to ride one in the store, but not outside in the carpark. It was not near closing time, nor was I half cut. And Az confirms this as the policy, unless I'm reading it wrong.
Az thinks 'most' stores are big enough to ride around; Camberwell isn't. It has ramps and narrow aisles - nothing like Victoria Gardens, for instance. Would I buy a bike I can't test ride? No way.
