I received a phone-call from a person who identified himself as a local bike mechanic. He wanted to do a a stand-over of a bike we had in stock, but that he would eventually order from his own shop. No one likes being show-roomed overtly, but this young man was up front with me and a part of our local community.
He showed up soon there-after, and stood over the bike he was interested in. he then told me that he was going to install new Shimano 105 group-set he found online for $426 (MSRP $797...but that's an entirely different post).
I am not preachy about online purchases....we all buy things online. How am I supposed to "educate" customers whilst I buy pane tickets online and put local travel agents out of business.
I was just hoping one of our own would get it, I guess.
