Measuring for a seat post
Post #56 makes me start this thread. For complete disclosure i am in the retail bike business, owned a shop for 15 years and still wrench daily. I have position on the topic of what value shop help is worth. But i want to hear from the people out there.
If the LBS had measured Fumbles22's post BUT had not told him the size what would you think of the shop. If the shop had asked for payment for this information (which would be credited against a seat post purchase) what would you think?
There are many other situations that mimic this one but let's keep our comments on topic please, the valueshop'shops's consulting and whether it's the shop's property until a price has been paid. I look forward to others' opinions. Andy.
