A few months ago, a good friend of mine presented me with an opportunity to co-own/invest/manage a bike shop with him. It seams now that I jumped at the chance of doing things my way and in a way, fix the flaws of the other est. LBSs here. perhaps a decision with out a huge amount of consideration. oh well. But here I am ready to open in some time next month. With the ridiculously cheap overhead and a perfect outlet for my 43 used bikes for a start, it seams like a done deal, at least for the first few months. Being a college town we'll be catering to fixies, motorized bikes, bmx, and cheap affordable hardtails for everyone. So other than the legal stuff which we've got covered, what tips/tricks/pitfalls can yall tell me about owning an LBS. Oh and yes Ive had much experience working/managing in a shop. Also what bike brands are good to do business with? Im looking at GT, fuji, and kona specifically. Any advice is welcome.
