Within the next couple of months, I will be making my first new-bicycle purchase. The bike I want is in stock at an LBS. It is my size and is reasonably priced. The bar tape is torn in two places and coming unwound at the end.
So tell me if this sounds like an unreasonable request:
Give me a roll of bar tape and I will rewrap the bars, (saving them the labor).
During the fitting, have them put on my BROOKS saddle, (they can sell the other in their "pull-offs" bin for $30-$45)
Ask them to throw in a set of fenders or a couple of bottle cages.
Will this fly in the world of bicycle haggling?
(If they don't go for it, I'll probably still buy the bike, fenders and cages.)
