Got my wheel back from the shop today, half way home on the train I noticed something amiss.... The valve stem would have been in a cross, under the reflector and the logo didn't line up to the valve hole. The latter of which isn't much of a bother, but its a sign of a proper build.
I turned around and brought it to their attention, cool heads prevailed all round. I was offered gift cards and stuff but I just wanted it all fixed up, no rush.
Apparently it was one of the new mechanics so it was an honest mistake by someone that didn't know better to pay attention to it.
I get a free rebuild by one of the seniors and they're dropping brass nipples and better spokes for the trouble.
I was originally quoted brass nips and better spokes though so it all works out, I asked if they missed something about 3 times when I got to the register with the bill.
Picked up my rubber for it too, A hemisphere Sport.
I wanted something multi-terrain. Just hope its not too fat at 1.95 that it rubs the chain on the top ring. Will be one of the widest tires I've ever used.
Ill be sure to get a pic once its all put together.
