The owner of the bicycle shop I worked in made a deal with a department store so his mechanics assembled their bikes. This was short lived because somebody made another deal at the cooperate level for their trained minions to assemble the bicycles at all of their stores. Shortly after this happened we were flooded with department store bikes in need of tune-ups and repairs. At a store managers request I observed A couple of trained assemblers doing their thing. They averaged around 10-15 minutes per bicycle. I would have been fired for that level of incompetence. Department store bicycles are very poor quality and come out of adjustment with very little use.
