those "free" tune ups are useless anyway. I feel like it is more hassle to get home from work early, load the bike up, get to the LBS, wait a couple of days, get off work early, go to the LBS pick up the bike. Id rather just get a screwdriver, adjust a few screws, clean all the drive train with a brush and a rag, lube the chain and cogs... some brake cleaner on the disks... life is good.
Doing it myself takes about 20 minutes, having them do it takes 40 minutes + a couple of days of lost bike.
Also note that very few people post on craigslist/kijiji with a truly "firm" price. Note that the dealer's price will aso add sales tax making the difference bigger. Im just saying.... explore your options. I know everytime i post, I add a good 10-20% on top of what I really would be willing to take, just so the buyer feels like they gave in a little. People know what things are worth, just mention the warranty and free tune up to the seller and they will lower for you surely. There ARE some people who think they are entitled to get all of their money back for a used item.....
