I picked a new beater and took it to my lbs for an overhaul and safty check. They phoned to tell me the problems and I okayed tne new cables and pads, but not a new tire and agreed to the price. When I picked it up the invoice included a new shifter. When they brought me the bike it not only had a new shifter, but a new derailer and a new tire. I told them I wasn't paying for any of the 'extra' work that was done and *****ed loud to the manager. His response was to phone the guy who worked on it as he was new and might not know better. I handed him the invoice and told him I was paying the amount on it only, with new parts or the old ones. I finally just paid the original quote and left. Of course now I need a new lbs, but of a moral concern, I must be getting older (and wiser I hope), was I out of line to be a mean sob after 5 min of futile discusions concerning the new parts?
