This has been bothering me for two weeks.
I didn't buy my new bike from my favorite LBS, even though they carry Specialized. They always have such a limited selection on the floor, and I have absolutely no patience waiting for a bike to be ordered. I had tested several bikes from time to time with them, but didn't buy any.
I found my new bike at a place called Bike Warehouse, a (local?) chain. But they didn't throw in much like free lifetime tuneups, etc. So after I take the bike in today for the free tuneup I probably won't want to go back there for service - it's a bit out of the way.
So how do I tell the fine folks at Adams Avenue Cycles that I bought the bike elsewhere but I want them to be my service guys? They have already done a fine job on my Univega singlespeed conversion, trying to fit The Diego and getting it up to speed, as well as routine maintenance on the Cypress.
I'm probably making much over nothing. I think I'll just pop in one day, and mention that I bought another bike somewhere else on a bit of a whim. Then I'll say I hope I can bring it here for on-going maintenance -- you guys are the best. Then I'll try to guage their non-verbal behavior.
