    Hey, did you get the $20 off $50 coupon in the mail? I got that a couple days ago.

    Performance is one of the closest bike stores to my house. Not that exciting anymore. (But I still go there often!)

    So I needed a new floor pump and I see their 'good' Hurricane pump is like $20 off so I bought it. I spent like 20 minutes checking out their inventory....not bad for a brand new store. Then from there I drove to the Rose Bowl which was like 10 minutes away in moderate traffic, did a few laps around the perimeter and after that tried to convince about a half dozen guys to doing the GMR ride. I didn't see my friend Mason to remind him about Saturday's ride so I called him on his cell. I told him I didn't spot him at the Rose Bowl and he proceeded to tell me he was in the middle of exchanging an item at the new Performance store. I told him hey I was just there like an hour and a half ago and I asked him what he was exchanging. He told me he had purchased this "sh1tty!" floor pump a couple of days earlier and wasn't happy with it. I asked him which one......and turned out to be the exact same pump I just purchased....
    Anyway, I'll play with the pump tomorrow and see if he had a valid complaint about the pump head being a dual purpose presta/schrader which he wasn't too happy about.... We'll see...

    I've been in there a few times picking up random stuff two weeks ago.

    I was actually in there today around 6pm picking up a Do-wrap skull cap so my helmet doesn't get nice and sweaty - haven't ridden the Rose Bowl all week as I've been out and about the streets of San Marino for a change of pace, but heading out there tomorrow morning.

    I'll look for a fixie bike - I don't know your real name so I'll just casually call out your screenname - I'll ride alongside and be like, "It's a nice *cough* Fixer! *cough* day for riding, huh?"

    I drive by the fountain valley performance every day. I stopped in today to pick up a cheap work stand. I also asked if they had spoke washers. Only one of the guys working even knew what a spoke washer was. And he wasn't one of the mechanics. I guess they don't build too many wheels there. The clearance section is the best reason to go there.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Just got back from another quick trip there - quite convenient as I'm only 5 minutes away.

    All bikes are tax-free today. The line was super long as they were having earlier problems with the registers - one of the employees was out and about the line handing out CLIF bars apologizing for the wait. Wasn't horribly bad - took me around 10 minutes or so in line.

    I picked up the Hurricane Team pump as well - haven't used it yet as I just got home, but hopefully the dual valve isn't a problem.

    They should make those pump heads either or.......I don't get a solid pumping action with the presta valve like I do with my other old pump which has a presta only head.

    Thanks for your feedback - I'll try it out tonight and if I'm not happy with it I'm bringing it back tomorrow probably for the Joe Blow, which is the same price.

    I own the same pump. Works fine for me. Not great, but completely adequate.
