I'm just wondering what if anything my not so LBS has done to my trusty steed ?
What should I expect from a FULL service at £100
To put things into perspective, the bikes come out of winter hibernation about the same time as me, it felt a bit tired and the gears were skipping and the wheels weren't true,
So I booked it in left it and picked it up !
The gears were fine, which was probably a result of twisting the barell 3 times on the shifter,
The wheels seemed to wave just as they did before it went in ?
The 20mm Thro axle was as dry as a bone as was the rear QR Skewer ?
As the wheels were comming off to get it in the car I took the seat out and it was as dry as a bone ? Surely they would have had the thought to grease these bits up ?
I asked them to replace the BB bearings as they felt a bit graunchy but no they are fine apparently ? Not that they went in there as when I took out the seat pin and turned it over low and behold water came out !
I'm passing later in the week and intend to go in and confront the shop but realise letting loose on a sales assistant and NOT the owner is a pretty shit thing to do !
That said it wasn't the owner who serviced my bike,
I specifically asked for things to be done and they weren't but it looks like I paid for it any way ?
Jagwire brake cables
All bearings stripped re greased and re fitted, stuff I couldn't be arsed to do because I don't have the correct tools !
And the lite time I do get off from work I have to share between family life and riding.
Oh and last but not least what ever happened to proper LBS !
