I took my bike to get tuned at a sporting goods store (scheels), and have some complaints. I know I should have went to a real bike shop, but the ONE shop is no longer in business.
My biggest concern was the shifting, I tried to adjust it myself but failed (front der. mostly was the problem). I figured I needed a new cable, so I just let them deal with it. Anyways with the new cable, the chain still rubs the der. guide in either the mid, or high gear, (either inside or outside, depending on how tight the cable is set up on the shifter adjustment.)
Next wheels. They were probably bad when I took the bike there, but they didnt make them much better. When I spin the front wheel its not hard to tell its not perfectly true. And when pedeling the rear wheel at high speeds (bike sitting on the seat/handlebars), will cause the bike to shake.
I paid 70 dollars for this **** (they decided it needed to be cleaned too), and am pertty dissapointed. Im wondering what you guys think about this situation, and how I can fix the front der.
Bike is a GT avalanche 2.0 btw, about 3 seasons old.
