I've sat on this one for a few days now but it's been bugging me so much that I've got to get it out.
After a play round the Chase on Saturday I popped into Swinnertons to ask about a Blue Pig - they're listed on the Ragley website as dealers - as I'm very tempted by one.
The initial response was that no, they don't have one at the moment, which I thought was fair enough, but this was then followed by
"I don't suppose we'd even bother to get one in for you as no-one's buying 26" wheel bikes anymore and there's no market for them"
Yeah, but I'm not everyone else, I'm me and I know what I want.
Surely if I'm showing a lot of interest in a bike frame with quite a large possibility of buying it they could spend a bit more effort in selling it to me rather than telling me I shouldn't be interested because it's got the wrong wheel size????
I regularly spend money in this shop but TBH with this sort of attitude I think I'm going to be putting it elsewhere from now on.
Surely a sale is a sale no matter what the wheel size?? Isn't business important to these people? What's up with them?
