UPDATE FROM MY LAST POST: The shop actually offer unlimited tune ups for life which includes This includes brake adjustments, gear adjustments, minor wheel truing, lubrication of drive train, seat and stem adjustments, re-torque of all bolts & fasteners, and an overall safety inspection.
However, the bike is over $100 more at the LBS that it is online. Do you think its worth it?
Here is my original post:
I usually post in the folding bike forum as I am going to buy a folding bike in the next 6 months. However, thought I would post here as I am more of a recreational biker, meaning that I won't use the bike as much as other people would.
I want to buy a bike from my local dealer but so far, they charge about $50-75 more than what an online dealer would charge. Furthermore, I'd have to pay tax on my purchase if I went local. However, they said that they will give you a free tune up if I buy through them which is supposedly worth $80 which makes it a wash. What do you think? Thanks in advance for your responses.
