success story. i got my director thinking about bikes. she went down to a sports authority (cring) and checked out a couple. the sales guy sucked so she told the guy she was going to an LBS (good!) and so tonight she is going to get a new mountain bike.
her husband wants one too now! and they are getting a BMX for their daughter as well so they can all ride together. probably all from the same LBS - it's the one they went to as kids. a real neighborhood place.
So, i can say my incessant cycling talk around the office has indirectly resulted in a whole family getting new bikes and excited to ride them. the LBS owner should be pretty happy too. if only i could get a cut of the sales price...
hehe. referring to brown nosing? that may be....but i'm an equal opportunity bike promoter. meaning i'll talk about bikes to the mechanic working on the boiler in the basement if he seems receptive. it is rather nice though, to get in good with the boss. won't lie about that.
