the reason that i almost never go to one of the local lbs's
every time i go in there they say something that pisses me off. i rarely ever take my bike down there. but i have actually gone down there in full kit before. but yesterday i was just beating around in jeans and a pressed shirt. I went in and the guy asked me
"hey is that your dad's bike?"
last time i rolled in i was wearing my ride your bike to work day shirt and i got asked "do you have a bicycle?" 3 times. it just seems like unless i come in dressed in full kit they assume i dont have a bike, or know how to ride.
so i take my business elsewhere where the guys are a bit more laid back and tend not to bother me but have to put up with the fact i dont want to put trek branded part on a specialized frame
ok i am done ranting
