So I took the wheels and other dangly things off my bike the other day to paint my frame, and I finished today (with all the drying and clear coating and etc), and I got the front on fine, but my chain was a little screwy so after tinkering around with it for an hour and still not getting it on the wheel (I had sort of a knot in it but not really) I decided to pay a trip to my LBS and see if maybe they could slip it on or teach me, hopefully for a small fee (I'm thinking small as in like 2 bucks) or for free. After all, it's just untangling the chain and putting it back on the teeth right?
WRONG! Apparently, it would cost me $8 because you need "special tools" and you need to put it on the bike rack for them to fix it, which they would charge for. I decided to play dumb and ask them how severe the problem was, and they said it was pretty severe. I then tried to haggle for $5 but they still wouldnt budge, so I was just like screw it and I rolled my bike home.
Well I got my dad to fix it (all asian people know how to deal with bikes apparently) and it works fine now, but I'm not sure what angle the rear thing should be fixed to the frame at. What is it called? Anyway I'm glad it's fixed but pissed that I really can't trust the people at the LBS for anything. What a rip.
