Can anybody please explain how this bunch of cowboys has become successful?
Nobody who works in these shops has a clue about bikes, ask a simple question about a component, shoe or even a whole bike and they look at you blankly.
I stood in my local store for half an hour after asking about a road bike, they were trying to find someone who knew about it....they were ALL mechanics apparantly.
Really though, makes me want to open a bike shop...if they can make it work then I will be a millionaire within months!
