benefits and drawbacks of running a bike shop?
Does anyone on this board run or work in a bike shop? If so, what are the benefits and drawbacks of running a shop? If you could do it all again would you still run a bike shop?
I'm guessing there isn't much mark up on bikes and accesories, it seems to me that it'd be hard to make a living running a bike shop. Is this true?
I'm just wondering what would be involved if I decided on a complete career change and would appreciate people's thoughts.
