I've almost completed building my 69'er, but there was one thing I couldn't do with my limited resources, so booked the bike in to my LBS workshop for yesterday (booked last week), dropped it off at 9am. The jobs that needed doing are/were:
1) Crimp swages to braided brake hoses (I don't have a vice, or indeed a shed, and being HEL hoses they need to be 'crushed' on), I asked them to shorten the rear hose before doing so.
2) Seeing as they're doing the brake lines, I asked them to finish the fitting of the system - ie. attach hoses to callipers & levers and then bleed/setup.
And that's pretty much that...
Called them up just now and they've advised it won't be ready till "sometime next week, as it's a big job and will take 3-4 hours..." Firstly, WTF is it a 'big job' for a fully equipped workshop with 3 mechanics? And if they couldn't do it in 2 days, why did they even accept the booking??
How do most workshops work their bookings? Would you take in a job that couldn't be done on the day, or by the next day at worst?
Fooking sick of this bike store... I really am! Don't know why I keep going back to them, they always make me feel like sh1t for some reason every time I use them... for the last time I swear!
