So. Today I just have had it with this LBS. I asked him to order me a 17t salsa track cog, thats it; and he did. The thing about it is he quoted me on the phone for $22 for a 17t Track cog by Salsa since he said he couldn't find any 17t DA cogs (So I'd have to pay $2 more for another brand cog - So he says). So, a few days later I get there and the owner (and the seller)wants to charge me $29.99 for a 17t track cog, and he wants me to pay $10.99 for a lockring to go with it, implying that my current DA lockring wouldn't work on it. Maybe he thinks I'm an idiot. I could get two cheapie cogs for that price, although I was willing to pay the 22
I didn't even know what to say-- so I just told him I didn't have enough money with me currently, and left.
Also when I initally bought the bike something strange happened, but didn't seem to click until now. The full price of my bike on the receipt was ~$540 (I bought additional handlebar tape since I put my bull horns on it, and kept the stock wrapped drops for another bike. My beautiful Fuji Track which I love very much was $499, although he had quoted me on $450 originally. He had just said that I was mistaken and it was $500 - At the time I guess I wasn't in the mood to argue, and I was dying to ride it so I just paid the man for it (Fuji Track 06' the msrp is $499 btw). I was out riding and happy anyways with it, so I couldn't really complain.
Now after this incident of him trying to sell me an overpriced part, and another part that I don't even need - I'm kind of aggravated. Not mad, but aggravated. I'm not sure what I should do now, since I really don't want to buy the part(/s). I don't want to go back for the free basic tune up that you get after buying their bikes. I think it would be odd to ask that, and not be able to pay for a part that I ordered. They just retrue your wheels and realign your brakes/derailleurs. (I don't have any brakes, or derailleurs though...)
The person selling me these things is one of the owners, so I'm not sure if it would do anything. They seem rather corporate.
