    Generally speaking I've seen several kinds of cooperative buying and storage, and many variations of the central storage and inventory database when all the locations were part of one company. Your...

    Why would a shop need to? You'd only include some shared volume purchases, or inventory you chose to make available on an equitable basis. If the shop owner really thought it was some kind of state...

    I know - I was giving you an "out" to reconsider those objections. The potential advantages should be obvious. From the above, I don't think that you're grasping the concept, but I didn't want to...

    I think some people resist changes brought on by technology, and aren't really as unclear on the concept as their objections would seem to indicate. Human nature.

    I'm on the sidewalk for a half mile sometimes, when the traffic is at a crawl. I don't like it, but why sit with the cars for 20 minutes?

    When traffic is moving it's not such a good idea. We don't...

    How stiff the sidewalls are (in addition to air pressure) also affects how hard the tire feels. So it wouldn't surprise me for a tire to feel harder in the cold, even if it had the same pressure or...

    It started out at 18 but quickly warmed up. Having something to block the wind helped. I decided to wrap the fairing with some spandex material to smooth out some of the lines. I'm fairly pleased...

    That would be my biggest concern in fact. There are ways to maintain inventory discipline but we'd be getting into details of a hypothetical situation. @Bob Dopolina said that he's working...

    Shipping could be an issue, especially with oversize boxes such as frames. But smaller items, compared to a special order I'll bet you'd come out ahead. If nothing else, depending on volume and...

    Better today with the fender off. Any water I encounter is going to be frozen anyway. I shudder to think of what the Greenway looks like since it was over a foot deep when I rode home last night,...

    What a strange thing to ask. No one put me out of business.

    The internet IS retail sales. I've seen a lot of big operations fail for not realizing that.

    Since the bike lane is "in road" as you explained above (pretty clear explanation I might add) wouldn't that tilt the projected "per user" calculation to favor the lane? From what you're saying it...

    There's nothing more annoying than some idiot flying around pedestrians and kids, with no regard for safety. I'm with you on that.
